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 throughout this triptych has a story behind it, a reminder of people, places and parties that have shaped my first 30 trips around our sun.
