Retrocast 5 – Chill Out Why Don’t You?

One of my oldest mixes that I’m still in possession of – so old in fact that it was recorded to MiniDisc. I think i was about 21 when I did this, 12 years ago would have been 1998. Golly!

Having always adhered very strictly to the beat-matching approach to mixing, it was around this time that djs like Coldcut and DJ Food opened my eyes & ears to the idea of mixing contexts rather than just 4/4s.

Anyway, that’s all immaterial – here’s a selection of late 90s chill out & ambient tunes – indeed a number of my favourite tunes ever (Trans Fatty Acid) are in here, and there’s a fair few which are so well played now it might even be a pleasant surprise to hear them anew after a decade or so.


1. Gus Gus – Why?
2. Air – You make it easy
3. Morcheeba – Over & Over
4. DJ Food – Consciousness
5. Lamb – Trans Fatty Acid (K&D remix)
6. Skylab – Seashell
