BTTO Radio Tomorrow (July 10th 2016)

July 9th, 2016 by Pete

BTTO Radio is back tomorrow evening, with both me and Tim Reaper at the helm. No theme this show, probably all 93-96 or thereabouts, but I’ve got a lot of stuff I’ve been itching to play for a while and I’m sure Tim has some nice surprises as well.
The show airs 5pm est/ 10pm UK on jungletrain.net. Jump in the Chat and keep us occupied, no really I swear it makes things a lot more fun (at least for us).

DJextreme & Tim Reaper – BTTO Radio Sets June 27th 2016

July 2nd, 2016 by Pete

Here are last Sunday’s sets – a ripping set from Tim Reaper, and an extra-special guest mix by Phil from hardscore.com. As mentioned in a previous post, I don’t post many guest mixes here since there’s lots of other websites which are good for that sort of thing. What I didn’t mention though is that, whenever I make that statement, I’m usually referring to 2 websites in particular, one of which is Phil’s site 🙂 True to form, Phil really delivered the goods here, packing the mix full of excellent but obscure tunes that have “BTTO Radio” written all over them. A couple of these are well known and played regularly on the BTTO Radio (AKA – Farside), but there’s more which I’ve slept on or didn’t even realize I owned (the first two tracks in particular). Others I’ve played a few times but have hidden from tracklists as “??”. And a few are awesome exclusive unreleased 93 tines from the likes of Roni Size and Krust (!!!), which you likely won’t be hearing in any other mixes anytime soon. Finally, Phil even chucked a track from my label’s latest, 8205-003, in there for good measure!

I say it a lot but, it can’t be said enough… big respect to Phil and JJ/deepinside for all their work posting and tracklisting sets as well as giving countless IDs. I hope everyone enjoys these two sets as much as I do, and if so, then please share them around and help spread the word!

BTTO Radio Today : Tim Reaper + DJextreme (hardscore.com) Guest Mix

June 26th, 2016 by Pete


For tonight’s BTTO Radio show, we have Tim doing an hour of the show, no theme but hopefully a few things from his excellent recent set at RUPTURE.

In addition, Tim will be playing a 1 hour guest mix from Phil aka DJextreme from Hardscore.com. Hardscore has always been one of my favorite oldskool sites (along with deepinside), and aside from posting classic sets, Phil has always posted many of his own mixes dating back almost as far (at least 97 if I remember right). In the most recent years, his mixes have taken a turn for the obscure which showcase a depth and knowledge of lesser known gems which few other people can claim to have!

The show airs usual time, 5pm est/10pm UK on jungletrain.net.

BTTO Radio June 12th 2016 (“Other Side of Anthems” Special)

June 15th, 2016 by Pete

Here’s the set from Sunday, rerecorded as I wasn’t happy with the nonstop chatter on top. I kept everything tracklist-wise 100% identical, including the few at the end which were chatroom suggestions from JJ, Postman and a few more people.

The theme of this show was: records containing huge anthems, except the tunes played here are the non-anthem tracks. As such, some tracks are still reasonably well known (personal favorites even), but a lot are underplayed and underappreciated due to being eclipsed by their anthem counterparts. Definitely a fun concept since, unlike the shows where we try to play beardy stuff no one has, these are records that a lot of people have, just tunes which might get a bit overlooked.


Tracklisting (Corresponding Anthem on the record listed in Parenthesis)

  1. Edge – Fl It [Edge] (“Compnded”)
  2. Top Buzz – Viola’s Delight (Instrumental) [Basement] (“Living in Darkness”)
  3. Neuromancer – An Unforgettable Feeling (“Pennywise”)

  5. Pulse – Warning [Creative Wax] (“Stay Calm”)

  7. Krust – Resistor [Full Cycle] (“Music Box”)
  8. Cloud 9 – Call My Name [AAS Mix] (“You Got Me Burnin”)
  9. Metalheads – Knowledge [Synthetic] (“Terminator” or “Kemistry”)
  10. Jo – Imagine the Future [Awesome] (“R-Type”)
  11. 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse – We are the Future [Tone Def] (“Drowning in Her”)
  12. Mega City 2 – London to Essex [Extra Terrestrial] (“Darker Side of Evil”)
  13. Pure White – Jungle Rush [Lucky Spin] (“4 AM”)
  14. Original Unknown – The Touch [Ram] (“Valley of the Shadows”)
  15. Q Project – Night Moves (Alliance Remix) [Legend] (“Champion Sound Alliance Remix”)

BTTO Radio Tonight: “Other Side of Anthems” Special

June 12th, 2016 by Pete

BTTO Radio is back tonight on jungletrain.net at the usual time: 5pm est/ 10pm uk / 11 CET. Tonight’s theme is those “other” tracks on EPs which featured a particularly big anthem or heavily played tune. Often these less popular tunes were the b-sides, sometimes though they were even released as the A side but were soon eclipsed by the flip. Either way, it’s safe to say they’re less popular and some may get missed due to the temptation of reaching for the other side. As usual, feel free to tune in live and jump in the chat to let us know when we’ve got it wrong 🙂

BTTO Radio – May 29th 2016

June 8th, 2016 by Pete

Here’s the sets from the Sunday before last… ehhhh, to be honest, these shows felt a bit off. Tim and I were meant to do 95->92 roughly in order and then 92->95, but the order fell away as did the strict year restrictions to a degree. Also, despite not saying a word to each other as to what tracks we were going to play ahead of time, Tim managed to play 3 or 4 of the ~30 tunes I had put aside to play second hour (all of them “must play” ones) in his first hour set. Kind of weird brain sync-up thing.

Originally I wasn’t even going to post these, but listening back there’s nice tracks in each and, hey, maybe some of you need a couple random mixes to listen to the middle of the week!

Mad Bats – Wake the Town

May 30th, 2016 by Pete

OK, one more another mega obscurity. I promise I’ll get back to the slightly more well known stuff soon! Here’s something I found a few years ago while digging through non-UK oldskool jungle related listings on discogs (in this case, stuff from the US). I got it for a buck, had it in my sell pile for a while, then recently chucked it on the decks for one last listen while grabbing stuff for a recent record fair. For some reason, I kinda liked it in an odd way, so kept it for now… Honestly, I can’t fully justify that as there’s nothing too crazy happening here, just a classic reggae sample stuttered and some vaguely trancey synths with dnb-ish beats. But it is a nice combo and stuck with me a bit. Of course no idea about the artist, and the label put out all sorts of electronic stuff from house music to techno hardcore, acid, etc One thing I can guarantee is that almost no one checking this blog (short of Tykal) has probably heard this before, so here, give it a listen.

BTTO Radio Tonight: 95->92->95

May 29th, 2016 by Pete

Blog to the Oldskool Radio is back on jungletrain.net tonight with both Tim Reaper and me spinning, typical time (5pm est/ 10pm uk / 11pm cet). I think we’re going to do the full range of 92-95 this week, with him first going backwards (95-92) then me slowly bringing it back to 95. No idea if this is going to work but, ehh, it’s something to try I guess??!! As usual I hope some of you lock in live and jump in the chat at chat.jungletrain.net
