PRESENTS...
This project is an audo and visual countdown of my favourite dance music anthems over the last 20 years, complete with original rendered video clips, classic old skool and more contemporary tracks, including exclusive Epicentre and Seismic Waves remixes. Very Channel 4, only much better...

A lot of thought has gone into this countdown, as well as some maths. All the visuals have been reworked and synced with the soundtrack, with some exclusive Epicentre and Seismic Waves remixes along the way.

There are many great tunes which don't appear in the list, and I'd probably rewrite this list year on year, but the overall list is still pretty much in place to date.

In true Trainspotter stylee, the countdown isn't ranked by popularity or cult status, but awards a score for each of the following:
- RHYTHM -   - BASSLINE -   - VOCALS -   - RIFF -   - COMPLEXITY -  and most importantly.... - GOOSEBUMPS -

#50 - #41

I could wax lyrical about these tracks forever.

<the original version>

The original version was circulated on DVD and partially completed footage was uploaded online in the summer of 2007. Since then, it’s been watched online thousands of times – even bootlegged and uploaded by others onto their websites. Other likeminded DJs and clubbers have gone on to compile their own countdowns in a very similar format (how cool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1yfzx4-ffo).

The combined audio and video footage took months to put together, but the results were amazing – especially watching it lights out with a few mates, projected full size onto a wall using an OHP. Volume rather high. You get the picture.

<remastered version>

Completely reworked in Adobe After Effects and Premiere from scratch, taking another 5 months to produce. Essentially, this is a countdown of original / enhanced music videos back-to-back in a 90 minute montage. The countdown currently gets down to #13, with the remaining 12 following on soon...

<exclusive remixes>

As well as paying homage to some amazing tunes, the countdown is also scattered with a sprinkling of exclusive Epicentre and Seismic Waves remixes, to tip the hat to some of the artists and producers that have encouraged us to produce their style of music. We had great fun working on these tracks, and from the feedback we've had you seem to have given them a thumbs up too!

<teaser tracks>

As part of the buildup to the release of the remastered version, the following teaser tracks just outside the 50 were circulated. All of them are still firm favourites of mine.
