Here’s my second Escape From Samsara tribute mix; I actually posted this a while back on Soundcloud, but haven’t got around to writing a blog post to accompany it. The last few months have been pretty hectic so I kind of let blogging slide.

Anyways, this one takes off right where part 1 finished; it starts at about 150 bpm and then builds over the next 105 minutes to a frenetic 170 bpm finish. In terms of artists featured, this one is even more Samsara-esque than the first one, featuring as it does the residents Beamish and Oberon (as well as some of their side projects), and regular guests like Mark Sinclair, Lab 4, Cybernaut, K90, Orange Peel and more.

The concept is very much to capture the unique vibe that those parties had back in the day. I hope that I have managed to do so! I still remember vividly my first time at Escape From Samsara at the Fridge n Brixton in autumn 1996 – the music was pounding, everyone everywhere was dancing, and even though I was a teenager and I felt awkward and young, the vibe was friendly and welcoming. It was an amazing introduction to rave culture and to being part of that world. 20 years later it is still a treasured memory. I know times change and all, but I hope that teenagers who are getting into the rave scene today can experience the same kind of fun.

If you want a taster of that vibe in its pure undiluted form, I hope this mix (and its predecessor) will give you that, but if you want video evidence of such, please check out the following clips from the Carry On Regardless parties that the Escape From Samsara and Pendragon crews were responsible for throwing out in Wales in the late 90’s:

so that’s where they went …
my dubplate copy of Rapture by Lab 4 … a treasured possession!
