Summer of '96


Quite possibly the best summer I've ever had, my first in London.

Visiting London at the moment and feeling supremely nostalgic: the smell of the tube, Trainspotting, my flat in Notting Hill, Cool Britannia, Time Out, the pint, the pub, Bar Italia, the Evening Standard, Wimbledon, sorted, pissed, Phoenix Festival, Leisure Lounge, Blue Note, the list goes on.

Eight tracks including music by Björk, Everything But The Girl and Goldie.

Love this mix! Been to London in 1999 for the first time and felt ridicously in love with the city!, I left Buenos Aires as a result and move to London in 2001.
I´m not a big fan of britpop anymore, I don´t live en London anymore, but had amazing memories and couldn´t resist going there every once and then... This mix really captures the moment!!!

@gphinriks Yeah, that track is pretty epic -- and utterly ubiquitous that summer. Really captures London in the mid-90s. I'd do anything to be able to go back and re-live for a week or 2 : )

I almost cryed when I heard Born Slippy - Underworld Oh a brilliant trip down memory lane! My brother will stop breathing when he hears this @hhinriks
