To my surprise, RaveTapes.com today posted up a mix that was recorded during my set at Magic Wednesdays in 1995. This is prior to me becoming the resident at Magic Wednesday which occurred around 1998 when the club was at The Globe. On this night I was a guest DJ. I remember that I was really into Psy Trance / Goa at the time so it doesn't surprise me that the last half of my set is filled with that sound. The beginning of my set seriously surprised me though. I start off my set with some breaks and acid and progress into some Techno before I get into the Psy. So strange to hear this mix after all this time. It is really interesting to see what I was into as a 22 year old DJ. It's been a long and crazy trip.
In the write up for the mix, RaveTapes.com wrote:
In the early days (93-96), Thee-O was the city’s authority on hard trance and psy trance. When you heard those up-tempo bass lines, driving kick drums and screaming synth arpeggios, you knew Thee-O was on the decks. As the years passed, Thee-O expanded his repertoire to include techno and house, among other styles.
Thee-O was certainly one of the hardest working DJ’s of the era. I can’t recall a single weekend when his name didn’t appear on numerous flyers. It seemed he was playing everywhere, all the time.
I am honored to be thought of that way. I am glad I have some history into this scene that has provided so much to so many. It's been an awesome ride and we aren't done yet.
