Outro Grandmix 90

1 x Philips 850 MKII CD player
1 x Akai DD 1000 Optical Disc recorder
1 x Tascam DA-30 DAT recorder

Background info
After gathering all the dance charts of the year, an initial list was made in the month
November. This list was sorted by tempo (BPM beats per minute) and on the 1st of
December, work was started on the mix. It took the full month of December to complete
and perfect the mix, usually working the last 72 hours in one stretch.

Digital Optical Disk Recorder
This grandmix was again made in a totally different way compared to previous mixes.
Only one CD player was used to load all songs into the Akai DD-1000 Optical Disk Recorder.
The Akai DD1000 can edit, timestretch and mix songs digitally. It can record from Analog sources,
as well as Digital AES/EBU, spDif and Optical Sources. Although the DD1000 can play only 2 songs
simultaneously, it has the option to merge songs, and thus layer them as needed. It also has great
timestretch capabilities even compared to today's standards. The DD1000's are perfect for another
reason, they never 'crash' messing up your edits , In over 10 years they 'locked up' maybe 3 times.
Switching the machines 'off' and 'on' again is all that is needed to continue your work.
Needless to say the machines are still in use here today

The Grandmix 90 Directors Cut
The Grandmix 90 as broadcasted on Radio538 august 1999 was transferred from the DMC grandmix 90 CD
to the AKAI DD1000. The intro starts of with "Timewarp complete - Ready for transmission" followed by the original

Intro featuring Ben Liebrand on Vocoder. The mix was then recorded on to DAT.
