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 Multitrack
This grandmix was made in a totally different way compared to previous mixes.
The Akai MPC-60 was used to program a basic rhythm. Each segment was then recorded
into the S-1000 (or was it S-1100) and was tuned and triggered by the sequencer in the
Akai MPC 60. Eachsegment was then recorded in sync onto the AKAI DR-1200 digital
12-track recorder. After all parts were synchronized and recorded this way, the parts
(recorded on seperate tracks of the multitrack) were mixed down together with a rhythm
coming from the AKAI MPC-60 drumcomputer section.
The total mix which spread over 4 different tapes (due to a maximum multitrack tape length
of 17 minutes) was then spliced together to formone continuous mix.
(See also Reel to Reel on the '84 page)


The Grandmix 89 Directors Cut
The Grandmix 89 as broadcasted 31st of July1999 was transferred from the DMC grandmix 89 CD
to the AKAI DD1000. The mix was then leveled to 0 dB and minor imperfections were corrected.

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.
