  1. So, the intials, on the tape NMW or RMW, on the label…I never knew what those letters meant and Flammable is my club, lol!

  2. I also believe that Flammable Liquid CD that was published by Planet Earth records was hardly ANY example of Flammable music…this is a great tape/download of the sounds of Flammable.

  3. Awesome. (end of) The Shaker Song @ very start of side 1 is a true FL classic. One of the few records from that era I never got but really wanted. Some great, great old skool on here.

  4. So I’m not Crazy…. this really did happen!!!! The audio has aged sooooo gracefully. Dig some of the harsh mixes too :) But especially LOVE some of that early Organ/Piano Sounds….That is THE SOUL of Early House Music!!!! Only felt/eXperienced when I was at UnderGround CHURCH of Flammable Liquid • Honest

  5. this is amazing!! I haven’t heard some of these tracks in many years.

    baba lou – I’m trying to remember all of FL venues u used. warehouses, new moon, shark club, rampart, so many good times! the best in fact. :)

  6. Man oh man ! Just found this site and walking back down memory lane with DOC.

    These were the days and owe a lot or most of it to my day at Flammable.. Pretty much changed my life.

    Thanks you !

    Wait, what’s the name of the first song on side 1? When googling for “The Shaker Song” I seem to get every Shaker song except this one!

  8. Man, what can I say? Flammable, of ALL of the parties, was the uber fly place. The vibe and people there just kicked. It was really the cream of the crop. I remember the flammable bead necklace with the logo pendant even!

    Even when the commercialism hit the scene a bit after Mars FM came out, Flammable still maintained the true LA Underground vibe. Sketch Pad was pretty tight, too!

    Oh yeah, I can listen to his live remix of Feel It over and over and over and over again. Anyone who’s spun vinyl before can “read” exactly what he’s doing with a Feel It record on each deck. BOMB STUFF.

    What’s the name again of the track that comes right after Feel It? That track was, and still is, epic. I used to have it on vinyl… just can’t remember the name. I wanna say “Acid” something…

    After hours parties were ALWAYS the best.

    Baba Lou, I remember you, too.

  11. Who and where do I send some of my old mixes, might be nice to share.. Thanks again for the walk down memory lane, spent a lot of early mornings with DOC and Flammable.

  12. wow! this makes me wanna cry! been dancing around my house for the last hr on this thanksgiving day… i’m thankful for being so fortunate to have been a part of all this back then AND share it with all of you! almost 20 yrs on & we’re still groovin. woooo, come on, come on!

  13. Hey all! Marques & Doc are doing a Classics night at King King this month. I wouldn’t miss it! :)

  14. What a find! I had this CD back in ’91 and lost it somewhere along the way…and am sooo frickn jazzed to hear FEEL IT again….always my favorite…never missed a flammable liquid, never. I’m in Chicago now or would LOVE to make that old school gig at KingKing…Jerel….Is that you? :) fellow Hawaiian?

    I beleive those are the initials of DJ KMW, a female house Dj from that time period. Friend of Big Steve the bouncer who used to work the door at Flammable, etc.

  16. Awesome mix!!
    Doc brought some of the most secret beats I ever heard. The raw underground vibes at Flammable were never matched, in my opinion.

    I also have some other Doc mixes on tape:
    Sounds you can feel
    Deep Intense Paradise
    Flammable Grooves

  17. wow,
    after listening to this mix I am wondering if it is indeed a Doc Martin mix..
    There’s an awful lot of old school techno on this, and from what I recall Doc wasn’t one to play that much techno in a row.. can anyone validate the authenticity of this mix?

  18. At the Parliament party, I saw signs for the FL reunion. I saw u for a second, babalou, but never saw u again. I wanted to chat with u about this. Any info would be great! :)

  19. JSplat, yes kmw is initials for Karen woll, I got a massive amount of old tapes from her… She put her mark on all her cassettes

  20. Wow Thank you so much for making this website! It brings back so many amazing memories! I think I was at FL every weekend….LOL good times!

  21. ritchy weaver E K G colin sunday love rose sketch pad how remembers dave 7 nutter bananna sean (rip) i was all ways poping on acid loved it god times

  22. Flammable Liquid mixes still kick my ass, all these years later. I was at this one. And I still have the cassette tape.

    Just listening to the opening tracks here now is flooding me with amazing, awesome memories. Good times, to say the least! Some of the best in the L.A. underground.
