DJ Trance & Fester – Trance Fester 1




This mixed tape was released by DJ Trance (a.k.a. Jason Blakemore) and DJ Fester, in June of 1992, and was the first of four tapes they made together. If you were going to clubs like No Doz, Dare and What? back in 1992 chances are you wore out one of these tapes.

The tracklisting below is mostly complete, with some “I don’t knows” and some “I can’t remembers” here and there; several between “House Nation” and “Let It Move You”, on the Fester side. If you can fill in any blanks please post IDs in the comments.

  1. YES! been waiting for months for some new music from you.
    tank you again, all i remember is “going” to no_doz_and what..thats it…

    ….lost the tapes lost my mind ….

  2. untitled track 1: if its the halloween sound effect records its “Disneyland Records “Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House””

  3. Thanks Ramon. I played the title track off of that record so much I completely forgot that the B side was better!

  4. Thanks for the mixes.. I’ve got a box of 30 old school 1991-1995 la scene mixtapes.(ron d core, aldo, Eli star and more. If you’re interested in posting give me a shout and I’ll convert them.


  5. Nice post! I am pretty sure I have this Fester/Tracne tape as well. I remember What! and D.A.R.E. and No Doz at the Coconut Tease back in the day. My boy Rick and Mike would dj at D.A.R.E. I remember many a night there…Also, I am pretty sure I have the Barry Weaver mixed tape along with: Attack of the Killer Bees; Chris Flores and Barry Weaver, many Mr. Kool-Aid and Destructo tapes. I even have some Dom T., Joe Curl, Michael Cook, Mark Lewis, Eli Star. I even was down with Big Daddy Sean Perry and that funky disco stuff that he and Mike Messex used to throw down!! Will have to get with you to share/copy some these tapes.

  6. I’ve been waiting for this day for years! Thank you very much. The quality is pretty good considering it’s from tape, an old tape.

  7. This tape really put the hook in me… WHAT? was in full effect. Looking back, themz really were the dayz. How you have what looks like a pristine copy is no doubt commendable as mine got played ’til it broke like most everyone else’s. Word.

  8. Could anyone help on the the last track on Trance’s side. Onless it’s the B-side (that discogs has as “Untitled”), it does not sound like 3 youtube videos which all sound alike for “Dread – Quantum Leap.” It’s a slamin tune heard plenty of times, so I’d like to find out what it is.

  9. @Alexey
    that song is not “dread – quantum leap”. i wish i also knew the name of the last song. it has been bothering me for decades that i dont know the name :(
