  1. Hey,
    Only Side B is able to Download, can listen to Side A but the link to Side A gives me Side B….. Thanks for posting it though….

  2. Dude..I have been trying to find this to replace the tape that I wore out years ago!!! But how about “Pop goes the balloon”?? PLEASE!!!!


  4. I actually stumbled upon this site by accident at work today. Luckily I work for a law firm, cause I’m gonna sue!! Hahaa!! Just kidding!! I honestly appreciate the support and comments. Thanks to Simfonik for downloading my tape and Jared for supplying it. I’ve gotten SO many requests from people asking me to put my old tapes on mp3, CD, etc., so thanks for doing me a favor. I might as well give you copies of my other tapes to download, cause I’ve been procrastinating about this FOREVER. Yeah, I know, I’m a lazy ass!!! Hahaa!! I’d rather chill and play Call of Duty: Black Ops than go digging thru an old box of my tapes! *lol* Thanks again to everyone!!!

  5. Thanks Jake. I appreciate that :)

    Hey Kram. I’m one of the few pc players. You can usually find me on this server: [EGC]’s 24/7 Nuketown TDM, under the name “j_steppa”. I’ll be the one “camping”! Hahaa!!

  6. Oh man oh man. N20 put out my favorite mixtapes ever. I just loved this one- driving around in my van with this on was- well, pretty much the epitome of getting AMPED! yes, thanks so much for this. God, if someone had Pop the Balloon…. . Was that the one with the old BSG Cylon intro??/

  7. Hey G2V,

    I gave all my old school tapes to Simfonik (including Pop! Goes the Balloon) not sure why the other ones never got put up. Check with Simfonik.


  8. DJ N2O, would love a tracklisting of “Losing My Mind”! Out of hundreds of mixtapes I own, that’s still in the top 10 of my favs.

  9. DJ N2O, do you still have all your records? Someone really needs to get you and Jughead back on the 2×4 for a old school reunion… Those sets were sick as fuck

  10. Jared,

    Yep! Still have all my records. They’ll be going with me to my grave! Hahaa! ;)


    I’ll have to do some major digging, but I’ll try and see if I can find the tracklisting for that tape. Just check back here periodically.

    Thanks to everyone for their comments and support! :)

  11. GOOD NEWS!!!!

    I finally got off my lazy (_l_) and got most of my mix CD’s up on Mixcloud. Here’s the link: https://www.mixcloud.com/dj_n2o/
    These are all mix CD’s that I never released, so enjoy! :) I’m going to try and get the remainder of my DJ tapes up on there too.

    Larry, unfortunately I don’t have a track listing for the Losing My Mind tape. Normally I would write the tracks down before recording, but there were a few recordings where I was just “winging it”. I just listened to that tape recently and I’m kicking myself for not writing the tracks down. The only track I know for sure is the first track on side A, which is Communique #11 – “Channeling”. I’m going to put this tape on Mixcloud as well. Stay tuned.

  17. Hey Brian. I love your tapes. I have been searching for Nitrous Fiend everywhere. Still searching today actually…. know where I can find it? I found the tracklisting and cover art but no audio files. Help please.

  18. To: Mr. N20 and Mr. Simfonik,
    Decades of fear, anxiety, nervousness; I hope the cassette deck doesn’t eat THIS tape!
    Thanks to you two and the internet I can now r e e e l a a a x.

  19. Sorry for the late response but thank you so much for taking the time for a track list . I really do appreciate it. Last name was Huston lol

  20. I hope you find your way back hear Brian. Thank you so much for the track list. I have one question I hope you can answer so my life can be complete. Jumpstart EP? Can’t find it anywhere. Is there a name to the song I should be looking for? Please Ob1, you’re my only hope
