Triptychlish part 3

this is the final piece of the Triptychlish which sketches out my formative musical appreciation from year zero to year thirty. part 3 is a soundtrack to my nineties experience and the turn of the millennium (1993-2002), reflecting major events like meeting the one i love, raving, the creation of luv, music biz training and the first of my Ninja years. each track chosen though out this triptych has a story behind it, a reminder of people, places and parties that have shaped my first 30 trips around our sun.

Logan’s Last Run

i made this mix just before my 30th birthday. initially thinking it was to be my last because where i come from everyone at the age of 30 must enter the Carrousel and be renewed. i was not ready, i had many more mixes to make, so i became a runner. to this day, almost 13 years later, i am still running from the Sandmen.
