DJ MK-LIVE ON CHOICE FM WITH DJ 279 - SEPT 1997
Some more archieve business for you. I always wanted to get into Radio and as you can imagine if your a up and coming DJ this is easier said then done. I figuerd that if i couldnt get my own show then i could do mixes for the guys who already had shows.
DJ 279 was always mad kool, and used to let me pas up to Choice Fm and do some guest mixs for him.What i used to like about 279 was his honesty, and when i would do him a mix he'd make it very clear that the mix had to be PERFECT!!!
Looking back, he was just trying to push everyone to be the best they could, and id spend DAYS doing one 20 minute mix.
The mix below came out real nice and unless you listened into Choice on that day back in 1997 you've probably never heard it before. Its also the 1st time skinny man is played on vinyl. I remember earlier that day i was working in Deal Real and Tony Vegas got given a white label to The Mud Files EP.He thought id make more use of it so he gave it to me and i played it that night on choice...
