  1. Zack, that’s the one!

    I must have never bothered checking beyond “Destructo” on Discogs, since that was incorrectly (now fixed) listed under Destructo (3).

    Thanks!

  2. Excellent work!

    I’ve been listening to copies of these tapes for years, some the were 5th generation with warped audio, so it’s nice to not only have cleaner copies but also know the story behind the “DJ Dan live at Organic” tapes.

  3. Oh my God!! Gimme more of that Dansmack! Dan was the ultimate as far as I was concerned back in the Summer of ’91.

  14. Nope, doubt it. It’s a track that cuts & loops that beat. That(skooly d) is the track it’s sampled from though.

  15. #8 on DJ Dan Live is The Chemical Brothers – Dust Up Beats. This record has a misprinted side, I have both.

    I used to own #15 but I traded it away years ago and I can’t recall the name anymore.

  23. The amazing result when artists, like the ones DJ Dan chose, care solely about the effect that their musical creations have on people and not about the popularity and promotion of the brand. I was at this party…

    #20 is Saint Etienne – Like A Motorway (Chemical Brothers Remix)
