003 – Freestyle

Right Click to Download 003

Here were the “rules” for the Freestyle Train: Each 10 minute slot must contain music and/or samples spanning three different decades. Note: anyone attempting to play Yazz will be hunted down and beaten with a teapot. Players have 3 days to complete their slot or the slot is allocated to another player. Let the creativity flow.

The rules made no mention of the mix needing to take nearly 7 weeks to complete (making it by far the slowest train to date) and that it should take certain DJs to the edge of their sanity in the process.  The end result features Jakey Chan’s debut  and is a true mash-up of gargantuesque proportions covering more than 8 decades worth of music.  So have a browse through the track list and see if there’s not something that makes you go “ooooerrrr”…
