Recently I have been able to get hold of nearly the entire Loading Bay catalogue. So, for the first time Loading Bay hits are in crystal clear digital quality and available here.
I don’t claim to be the expert mixer that Mike Coppock was (far from it!) but I have certainly given it a go. There are tonnes of tracks to choose from, and as most of them don’t include a mix beat, let alone the structure to include teasing elements, it was pretty difficult to keep the fluidity going.
For this initial instalment I have chosen the tracks for which I know are Loading Bay’s most prolific; ‘Where Were You Last Night’ is epic, and probably one of my favourite tracks ever – if you have other mixes of this, including remixes of the original by Ankie Baggar, I’d be interested in hearing from you!!
Loading Bay really was the origin of modern dance music.
I really like the tracks in this mix and plan on another one, with enhancements, surprises and teases – watch this space.
