33 BEN LIEBRAND Outro Grandmix 2003
This Grandmix marks a period of 2 decades since "First Contact". 20 years have past since the first Grandmix appeared on Dutch radio in 1983.
Back then, as a bonus mix in the series of "In The Mix" radio-programs, Ben Liebrand decided to make a special one hour mix featuring the best dance tracks of the year.
This evolved into a tradition with the Grandmix being broadcast on New Year's Eve.
Again, now 20 years later the moment has arrived for the Grandmix 2003. The grandmix has featured many new techniques like tapeloops (1983) , digital recoders like the Sony SLF-1 using betamax tape (1986), TC2290 stereo-sampler-delays triggered by reed-relais under the turntable platters (1987),Timecode locked sequencers triggering audio recorded in Akai S-1100 samplers and recording to digital multitrackrecorders (1988), (Akai Digital optical disk recorder (1989), 2 of those synced with time code (1990), Dat recorders for mastering (1990), The Akai DD1500 Digital harddisk editor (1999) and the very first Pioneer CDJ1000's in Europe (2001). Alesis Masterlink for CD-mastering (2001).
This Grandmix again is introducing new concepts like mixing in "open" breaks without drums and perfecting mixing tracks with matching key to the point that it becomes very hard to notice where one track starts and another stops.
It is great to see that the original Grandmixes have inspired many DJ's all over the world, many of which are now my inspiring me.
