Back to Mine is a series of mix albums, usually (though not always) mixed by renowned DJs or composers of electronic music. The compilations usually feature artists other than the artist compiling the album, and are based on what the artist would play at home after a night out, rather than as part of a nightclub session.
The first volume was released in February 1999 by DJ Nick Warren. Since volume seven, the albums have borne the subtitle “a personal collection for after-hours grooving”.
Back to Mine was published by the Disco Mix Club (DMC), but ended the series with Volume 28….wikipedia…
of course, nick warren did not request that i compile a “back to mine” set. luckily i didn’t wait for him too. instead i decided that i would make a mixtape for my friends and family as a birthday gift. i turn 54 in two weeks and i do like to do things for others now when the birthday month comes. i decided to go back to the 1970’s when i first really spread my wings beyond suburban white boy rock. i moved to chicago and got exposed to all sorts of sights and sounds and such things have continued to shape my perspective and my reality since then. i have a few chill or kickback tunes from each decade since then. it’s only a snapshot, but i really love all the tunes on this playlist.
if you don’t have spotify, maybe you should consider changing that. happy birthday from me..love you madly.
