This recording from 1994 is hands down my favorite Essential Mix of all time.
I`ve had a copy of this kicking about on the PC for a while now but refused to
upload it as the quality didn`t do this mix justice.
That was until i got this version,an almost perfect conversion at near CD
quality thanks to monkeyboyram @ TMB (themixingbowl)

BILLY NASTY has been DJ'ing half his life, a career that has seen him spin for most of those years at a professional level. Traveling the world as one of the most in-demand DJ's, he has performed at some of the biggest dance events and some of the most famous venues on the globe and consistently featured in the upper regions of DJ Magazine's annual Top 100 World DJ's.
At the beginning of 1990 Billy started his first residency, The Exploding Plastic Inevitable (with accomplice Steve Bicknell) at the legendary Brain Club in Soho.
By 1991 Billy was gaining a reputation for his deck skills to the extent that he was asked to contribute the first mix for a new CD series entitled 'Journey's by DJ' (JDJ). Segueing together emerging artists of the time like Leftfield and Where Eagles Prey,gaining him an entry into the Guinness book of world records for being the first ever DJ to produce a mix set available commercially.
At the front of the pack when Progressive House boomed in 93, Billy's DJ'ing schedule became ever more frantic. Besides being a regular at four of the most prominent clubs in London (The Drum Club, Open All Hours, Final Frontier, and Strutt), he begun to reach wider audience's as he traveled the whole of the UK and undertook an increasing amount of European gigs.Studio adventures came with Dave Wesson (Zoom owner) as Shi-Take - enjoying a six single career on the shop's own label - and alongside future Chemical Brothers engineer Steve Dub as Vinyl Blair,
