DJ Bolivia's Classic Dance Mix

Here's a mix that I've been working on, in bits and pieces, for about two years now. It's a four-hour mix of classic dance tracks from the late 1990's and early 2000's. Many of the tracks were club mega-hits. The majority are house music and what was, at the time, top40 music. A couple (near the end) are more trancy, and were played more at parties than in mainstream clubs. A lot of these tracks bring back some great memories for me, of the period when the club that I was running was having its best years, and when a bunch of my staff and friends used to constantly go to parties together every weekend after work. We'd go to cities all over New Brunswick and Nova Scotia about every second weekend, sometimes not even arriving at the parties until 6am. As Dylan Thomas said, we did not go gentle into that good night. Or as Neil Young put it, it's better to burn out than it is to rust.

As I mentioned, it's taken a long time to put this mix together. I had to talk to a couple dozen of my friends to dig through their memories, so I could come up with a good track listing. I wanted to do a really good job on this one. About half of the tracks in this mix were ones that I picked out myself, and the rest were by suggestion. Once I had a list of songs that I wanted, I had to go through my old music collections to find everything. If you've got a good ear, you'll notice that the sound quality isn't always perfect: some of these songs are straight from vinyl.
