Nostalgic Much 006


A reminiscent romp through rarefied rock and resplendent rediscoveries.
(Basically, stuff I grew up on. Very nutritious).

Hurva 003 (Here Comes The Sun)




In the '90s I was a resident DJ at a weird club in Haifa, Israel, that played mainstream music, slightly on the alternative side, for (at its peak) about 1,200 drunk lunatics per evening. It wasn't all bad. Sometimes, when we were in a good mood, and the crowd was good, we'd keep it going until sunrise and occasionally well beyond.
Those were our best evenings. The people who'd remain were the faithful, the really big fans of the place. By then it didn't matter what music we'd play, but around sunrise I'd usually play one of a few sun-related songs... like the one closing this mix.
I edited most tracks in this mix, for length, usually quite drastically, but pretty well this time.

Hurva 002 (Don't Piss Off the DJ)


In the '90s I was a resident DJ at a weird club in Haifa, Israel, that played mainstream music, slightly on the alternative side, for (at its peak) about 1,200 drunk lunatics per evening. "Don't piss off the DJ" was one of my standard replies to obnoxious requests by annoying people (IE any requests by anyone).
One evening, this really aggravating girl came up every few minutes demanding Scatman John, a bit more belligerently every time. Now I didn't LIKE a lot of the music we played there, but some of it was particularly nerve wracking for me (I'm slightly fonder of some of it now, 20 years later), but I particularly didn't approve of Scatman John's work. I Still don't. I kept telling her "sure, in a few minutes", and kept an eye out for when she went to the bathroom. Then I played the horrid thing until she came out and cut it off in the middle. She never came back to the DJ stand.
I edited most tracks in this mix, for length, but not very well.

Hurva 001 (Essentially... This Was It)


In the '90s I was a resident DJ at a weird club in Haifa, Israel, that played mainstream music, slightly on the alternative side, for (at its height) about 1,200 drunk lunatics per evening.
For whatever reason, some people remember it fondly. It was called "The Hurva".
This, essentially, was it.
I edited most tracks in this mix, for length.
Some were not edited. Some were edited very well. Some were... well, never mind.
