Raiding the 20th Century. On January 18 XFM Radio broadcast a DJ set by Strictly Kev (working under the pseudo-open moniker DJ Food) called Raiding the 20th Century - A History of the Cut Up. The set is completely comprised of music from the later half of, you guess it, the 20th century and makes for a very entertaining and nostalgic listen. File location details inside. [via]

The file is about 50 MB, so I'd like to encourage everyone to use P2P networks whenever possible to get this. I will provide a link to the file via BitTorrent, eDonkey and HTTP.

Bittorrent link seems broken?

Ah, the tracker is just down for maintenance, apparently. This must have happened in the last few minutes because I checked them right before I posted.

Don't forget POJ Master, his stuff is equally insane! Visit his blog and tour dates list at

I recommend BeatMixed for keeping up with mashers and cut-ups. It's a daily read for me. POJ and others hang off his 'mashers' link list.

This link will download the file through Free Cache, saving some bandwidth and increasing speed, hopefully.

this is a little ot, but for fans of strictly kev, his compilation with coldcut called 'stoned...chilled...groove' is one of my favorite downtempo albums of all time.

oh, and a big 'thank you!' to botono9 for the link.

By the way, the torrent tracker is back up. If the link above doesn't work, try this one:

holy disappointing, batman. I vastly preferred "Introintrospection" to this interfading snore. More audiocollage than mash-up: which is worth something in its own right, I suppose, but not as much as one might think.

Very very nice. Sort of an extension of Bit Meddler's "Shitmix2000". I'm gonna play this on my radio show tonight. (8-11 PM EST)

I waited until I had a chance to download on a faster connection, and now it seems to be gone. Wah. That'll teach me, I guess.
