Various – Live At What?


I’m not entirely certain of the various DJ’s for this Live @ What? mixed tape. My best guess is DJ Trance, Oscar Da Grouch and DJ Mellinfunk. Two of the mixes should be easily identifiable by The Beatles and Star Wars tracks. If anyone can positively ID who’s playing at what point on this mixed tape please post in the comments.

DJ Mellinfunk & Oscar Da Grouch – Live At What?


It’s been 16 years to the day, but not the hour (it’s not that late yet), since this mixed tape was recorded. These mixes were recorded at the legendary Los Angeles after-hours What? on Friday, March 5th 1993. I’m not positive, but I believe the recordings are of DJ Trance (side a) and Oscar Da Grouch (side b). If anyone has a better memory than I do, please feel free to correct my assumptions. Regardless of the DJ’s there’s some great oldschool techno on this tape.

My copy is a dub, and the tape is really old, so the quality isn’t as great as I wish it were. I cleaned it up a bit though, and it sounds pretty decent now. While the quality isn’t amazing, the content definitely is. Proper hardcore techno the way it was played in Los Angeles back in 1993.
