Here it is, my most requested tape ever! This was released not too long after I played the first & now legendary Narnia party. Funny background story - I was never officially booked to play the first Narnia party but I was told I could play if Doc Martin was a no show. Guess what? Doc never showed up. Thanks Doc! I went on after Michael Cook right at sunrise and I played much of the music that is featured on this tape. From that point I would be booked as the "sunrise dj" for many years to come. Remastered from a first generation copy & uploaded for your listening pleasure. Cover design & layout by Jonathan Wells of Statik & myself.

This is one of my personal favorites from the Quark-ive. I recorded this sometime in 1994 and it is chock full of deep moody and dubby house cuts that I was playing pretty heavily at that time. This one was aimed purely at the mind more than the feet. Enjoy!
This promotional dj mix was originally recorded in the Fall of 1992. Cover design was a collaborative effort between Jonathan Wells of Statik & myself. I grabbed the images from a DJ magazine article on DJ CHOCI/DIY parties in Nottingham and I thought they captured the mood that I was trying to create with the music perfectly. Just check out the girls 'feelin' it' and you'll see what I mean. Jonathan then did the layout and design in Quarkxpress. We definitely had a lot of fun putting this one together. This mix tape was mastered from a 1st generation copy donated by Kelli & Craig Moreno.
