Classic Breakbeat & Jungle mixes
DJ Ricky Breaks (1998?) (TGV) Tough Enuf
TGV DnB Vinyl Mix Late 1990s?
found this recently, like today 😛 A classic mix i made just before leaving for a trip to France that i hadn’t titled, and it was several days before i left. I put it on a tape for the trip and on my way to the South on the bullet train, some guy next to me could hear it and dug it. We talked and i let him listen to it. (5-hour trip) I gave him the tape when we reached our destination. Being the ∂ork i am, i titled it TGV after the train – enjoy!

DJing is something i never planned or pursued from the onset, although i love the artform very much. What i did pursue is being able to dj at home and have fun like that. Thanks to Jesse, he gave me my first pair of MK2s in 1994. I’d have little sets during some apt parties or just having friends over. One thing lead to the next and i was invited to spin at the small theater on Olympic and LaBrea. My first two records and the crowd got busy and my needled bounced like crazy from the hardwood floors and ppl jumping. lol. epic time for my first set to an audience. When the FP tour came around years later, our tour manager Rameen Baitmansour insisted that i was part of the bill. And he is also the one that pushed me to spin at my own parties. Thanks for that, bro 😀
Besides that, i set up several online radio shows in the mid to late 90s and later was invited to spin at Mok & Rustas House of Blue’s radio show which was a huge honor!
There’s lots of info i need to document. Come back soon for more. In the meantime…
