IN THE MIX GRANDMIX MINIMIX Mixfreaks IN THE MIX Veronica, 2004
Outlaw Classics      

In the 80s ('till the 90s) in Holland the mixing-season started.
A lot of  guys started making mixes which where broadcasted on national radio.
I liked them and taped a lot of the mixes and decided to keep track on some remixers.
In the early 90s they stopped broadcasting those mixes on the radio. (and they started again in 2001!)
Those mixers kept going on offcourse.
Some started their own company, others kept remixing or started their own acts/studios.
On these pages I try to keep track on what projects/remixes they made.

Around 2000 some new remixers popped up. They met together with other fans in an online community called Mixfreaks.
Some of these mixers also made mixes which were broadcasted on national dutch radio.

Radio Veronica had the 'thuismixwedstrijden (79-83)' ,the 'Home-Edit Mixes(83..)' & Ben Liebrand's In the Mix, Grandmix and Minimix (1983-1992/2000-????) and Tros & Veronica Top 40 Mixes

On the pages you'll find descriptions of mixes. No Downloads. The descriptions are usually written by the mixers themselves (the newer mixes). When a description says 'I decided to...', that it's offcourse the mixer who decided it, not me. I'm just the Messenger... Don't shoot me :)
