Chris Low - Trax Bedroom Mix - jackin house




Chris Low has given me a number of excellent mixtapes and this is a mix he made himself.  It's a lot of stuff that you could find on Dance Mania or Trax records.  Very basic hard jackin early house.  He made it for a 91.5 WPRK radio in the US in 1996.  

Chris ran and DJd at a number of Scotland’s most successful club nights throughout the 1990s: SOMA, SKIDOO, PHUTURE JACKS, SEX BEAT, XS and the legendary AHOY! ferry-boat all-nighters. Chris also guested at the aftershow parties on Kraftwerk’s 1991 tour as well as having DJd throughout Europe, America and Tokyo.   Here are a few pics which Chris sent me.


 

Chris tried to remember the track listing for this  mix though in some places there are records mixed that seem to be white labels or disappeared. You can download both mix sides below as well as a few tracks from the mix.  In particular I would appreciate anyone who can ID the mystery track on side 1.  I've included below a track from Steve Poindexter not in the mix, but which is incredible.

You can find Chris on Facebook here.
