  3. Frank C . MY FAVORITE EARLY NINETIES los angeles DJ
    IM so glad people can hear this – so they’ll understand proto house scene- -jungle,etc ….. these were the memories for me .. when everybody eles was playing techno – acid ,etc this guy blew everybody away….. So much hype IN PLUR WORLD but they really never remember the classic L.A. KIDS In the party scene . . .
    Does a great job of connecting italo HOUSE to trance music..

    not all the tracks are hot but the ones that are were the mix…..

  4. crazy how underrated frank was. i watched this guy make other djs getting twice the credit look like beginners. thanks Frank, do hope you decide to come out of retirement and help set LA on fire again.

  5. Would love to get an ID on the track at 11:00 on Side A. Been after that for awhile. The track right before it is a FSOL remix of Prefab Sprout.

  6. The New Dance Republic – Take It To The Top.

    Does anyone know the name of the track @ 8:08 on side B and the one after it?

  7. Hey Dubby…I’m paying at the Future Sound After Hours After No Doz…hope to see you there…thanks.

  8. Official DJ! We use to ditch school and go to street sounds. Frank C. was always a real cool guy and a great DJ that deserved more credit.

    Frank- Can we find you on soundcloud.com with any recent mixes?

  9. Im sorry to disagree with ONE but I find the first side of the tape very relevant to how good dance music should sound. Build ups which aren’t monotonous. Layering of sounds etc. I’ll groove to this any day over alot of new stuff

  10. Wow! I bought this tape from Frank at Street Sounds. He gave us a flier for Middle Earth. We always had a blast there.

  11. This tape is Proper Old Skool & proper vinyl talent. I dont care what any newbie thinks. They weren’t there and like Frank pointed out it was an entirely different experience. Dope mix Frank, respect!
