This is, in many ways, a better version of the mixes I used to make when I was in high school. That Lionrock 12" is probably one of the first records I bought at a "real" record store - Platinum Records in downtown Portland, I think.

The stars here are the two Twitch Recordings releases - This Is A Shout Going Out by Central Fire and Loose Caboose by the Electroliners. Old west coast breakbeat classics that stand the test of time. The first Twitch Recordings release is good, too: The Trip by The Ultraviolet Catastrophe, which The Chemical Brothers used to play in their DJ mixes. Sadly I don't have that one, or it would've made it into this mix.

Listening to these records has made me want to go digging out in the city again. Hours spent flipping through dusty bins looking for old breakbeat and electro. Good times.
