The diffidence of the 70s (Part 9). [repost]


These days I got a nice request:

Hi Floyd aka "chronovisor",

I write you from good ol' Europe (in my case Luxembourg, so german would also be ok for an answer). I'm a great Bowie fan - and this way I found many hints to your remix of the Bowie classic "Sound & Vision" or to be more exact: your remix of the 808 state version of Sound & Vision.

This way I found the link to zhare as well, but: since more than a week I'm trying to download from there - with no success at all. Meanwhile I hitted on that stupid link for more than a hundred times (noticed by the counter on that side jumping from something in the 800'ies up to 1012 now ... and their 'download' page is only reloading, but never starting the download at all (even tried with different browsers and operating systems!).

So well, that's my problem and the reason why I'm asking for your kind help. You will do me a great favour when you could help me out with a working link ;) or any helpful hint to another working download option to get this sought remix.

Looking forward to your help. With best wishes,

TopaZ :)

Well TopaZ from Luxemburg, such a nice request like you did needs to be rewarded, so, the link is revitalised. ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.

P.S.: The filehoster zshare was attacked late last year and all the links (not only mine ones!) were deleted. So, for requests from old links of that filehoster, just e-mail me, you see, it works! :-)

The ignorance of the 90s (Part 20).

Hello lovers!

First of all I want to wish you all the best for 2009. My missus and me were on vacation at different locations (Rarotonga/Cook Islands and Nelson/New Zealand), and it was great. So there was no time to think about doing anything with the blog etc. But vacation is over now, and I'm gonna be continueing here and on STRICTLY MIXES.

Earlier last year I noticed that the filehoster 'zshare' was hacked and all my files were gone, and even though it's working correctly again, I decided to change it to 'rapidshare', but this one also gave me hard times saying that after 10 downloads the file gets deleted automatically, because of not being signed in. So, again I changed my presentations back to old filehoster 'savefile', which really seems to be the 'save'est now (hopefully), we will see.

Today I present you music from my old home country Austria (as you maybe know, I immigrated to New Zealand recently). This band came up in 1997 so quick, unexpected and successful, many people wondered where they were from, and surprisingly they came from Vienna/Austria. And they're still successful. Todays tune is a dub one I basically doubled (a doubledub !) ;-) I did in late 2008. This piece of music you may recognize, because it might have been used in several shows, reports, or other programs for background music. If it's so, let me know, but for now just ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.
