  1. Wow! I haven’t heard this mix in years. I had a 5th generation copy of this that was stolen in 1995. You rock for putting this up! Peace.

  2. East Coaster here! Digging into this site now (found it via discogs).
    This is a good pick for 1st listen. This is some great, rugged stuff! I used to trade a lot of tapes back in the day, but my West Coast hardcore collection was always subpar. This fills it in nicely! Props!!

  3. wow this brings back hella memories.. cant beat the system, go with the flow! we went to this club religiously, even before we were old enough to get in, we’d sneak in the back.. with mixed results, doh!
    Ah, the beginning of my love affair with EDM.

  4. i met you at magic wednesdays splat!!! u and mikey and stan and donald and melanie and julie and the whole crew. damn!

  5. hell yeah this club was great….one of the first to take it from the wharehouse to an actual club…I was a huge Bender after this,plus it had that Blitz magic touch….thanks for site its Un-Fukin-Believable

  6. I have the original Milky Way Acid House Family tape of this recording if you need the cover art. Word.

  7. Ahhhhh — I was here every Wednesday. Perfect mid-week fix. Cannot believe this is up. Holy God. Loved the warehouses downtown, but HW was at the pier right down the street from my house. Can’t beat that. Thanks for putting this up.

  8. Ahhhh….HAPPY WEDNESDAYS!!! Way Waaaaaay too much fun on a week night. The real deal party feel mid week. Aldo Bender and Michael Cook destroying the place. Just as good as a Saturday night. And the after parties….o man!!! The dancefloor would be packed and absolutely going off every week. To be honest this was the best weekly party of the early 90’s besides Flammable Liquid in my humble estimations. Aldo Bender taking us back in this classic mix.
