Trance Fester 2 (Splat Mission), released in October 1992 (18 years ago!), is the second in the series of 4 collaborative mixed tapes by DJ Trance and Fester. If you haven’t listened to the first tape from this series, which was added to the site almost 2 years ago, do yourself a favor and go listen to it now.
Once again back here’s the incredible… Another “Live At What?” mix, this time courtesy of DJ Mojo, who’s been a big supporter of the site (Thank You!). I’m pretty sure Side E starts off with DJ Trance, but let me know if you know the correct DJ’s on these mixes.
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.
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.
This mixed tape was released by DJ Trance (a.k.a. Jason Blakemore) and DJ Fester, in June of 1992, and was the first of four tapes they made together. If you were going to clubs like No Doz, Dare and What? back in 1992 chances are you wore out one of these tapes.
The tracklisting below is mostly complete, with some “I don’t knows” and some “I can’t remembers” here and there; several between “House Nation” and “Let It Move You”, on the Fester side. If you can fill in any blanks please post IDs in the comments.
