Entry #12: Jim Appleton – Spiritual Psychedelia
This entry into the Hunab-ku Magik Mix Contest is a phenomenal, mostly-vinyl mix dropping some of the best old-school Goa you can find. I know I’ve said “phenomenal” a few times already during this contest, but really, this one rocks.

Here, Jim tells us about his mix:
As a brief description about myself and the mix. I’ve been Djing for a few years overall though I nearly hung up my gloves a couple of years ago for various reasons….but why give up something I love? 🙂
I recently resurrected my turntables from under the bed and now have my Technics 1210’s next to my Pioneer CDJ100’s. I’ve have actually only used a couple of CD’s in this mix purely because I wanted the vinyl reconnection.
So doing this mix has been like a resurrection for me also which is very positive – thank you.
Again I have to thank the DJ right back – thank you, Jim! This mix is freakin’ awesome. The opener by Eco – U.F.Olk – is a new one to me and I love it! Also new to me (that I can remember, at least) is Orion’s Nazca Spider, and again I love it. In my opinion, Solar Nomads is one of the best Shakta tracks out there, so what we’ve got here is a recipe for one of the best opening three tracks for a set that I’ve heard. Damn, I love this music.
