– SHACK THOUGHTS – 20 YEARS AGO TODAY
Don’t let the “unknown” source info scare you off as this show sounds quite good. More Shack-man grooves mixed with a few older tunes. Sequel, a reworked version of the song formerly known as It’s A Jungle In Here, gets the show going with high energy, followed by the epic sounds of Last Chance To Dance Trance (Perhaps) — luckily, the rest of the show will give you a chance to dance too!
The Lover > Henduck > Dracula run is especially good with the tunes flowing nicely with each other, moving from a more fast paced groove and then the tempo and mood gradually break down through the run of tunes.
Chinoiserie begins with a fun beat from illyB before John and Chris jump in, so there’s this cool little intro before they kick into the head of the tune, which they proceed to tear up.
A Bemsha/Lively encore is a nice atmosphere, and coupled with Chubb Sub, leaves our bass-thumping-needs satisfied.
enjoy the grooves,
