Welcome to the new regular feature Drumtrip Sessions.
Drumtrip Sessions will exclusively showcase the mixing and selecting talents of DJ’s from across the word. Spinning hardcore, jungle, drum and bass, and maybe even a few surprises.
It is a pleasure to be able to launch the Sessions with a mix by DJextreme. Extreme is responsible for countless jungle mixes spanning the whole spectrum of the genre, often posted on his own blog Hardscore.
It was one of his mixes that really got me into Dillinja’s (slightly) lesser known early productions and remixes, being a huge fan himself.
For this mix he has raided the archives and supplied a deep selection, even including a Dillinja tune I haven’t even heard of! Here’s a few words by the man himself…
This mix began with one record; The Doc Scott Interstate Remix on Butterfly. From here the other tracks fell nicely into place mainly consisting of 1996 beats running with similar styles.
Producers include the likes of J Majik, Photek, Arteq (Optical), Phume (Klute Collaboration), Source Direct, Hidden Agenda plus one of my all time favourites ‘Astrology‘ by Danny Breaks on Droppin’ Science.
Ending with a nice Dillinja track, This is taken from the Japanese import version of R&S Records ‘In order to Dance‘ session one album.
