    Interesting story. I was looking at Scott "Scotto" Osman's online videos of the NASA Rewind night he did at The Shelter. I was there and I frikken LOVED IT! It was officially the last RAVE I ever went to and I'm sure its the last RAVE I ever WILL go to unless if someone does this again which is doubtful. Even if so, too much time has passed and everyone has children and a wife except for me because im... stuck_in_1992 for better or for worse.

    Anyway some background is that asside from 12"s I'm also a retro club/disco lighting collector, mainly because I never got to have a career in this field and so the only way to enjoy this is to buy this stuff for fun. While looking at Scotto's video of the lighting rig at NASA Rewind I thought to myself, "I wish I had my own High End System's Trackspot moving mirror lights." I already had a set of Martin MX-1s and a pair of MACs but they're not nearly as good. I wanted these things back in the 90s but they went for 1200.00 each and I was a college student, nuff said. So I went looking that very night on Ebay and Craigslist and behold.... Someone is selling a set of 10 Trackspots and an Intellabeam 700HX controler for a good used price on Craigslist, Hell YES! So I contacted the seller and I thought about this for a week. I eventually took a trip down to south jersey one night (3 hours each way !!!!) to pick them up.

    On the way down to pick these up I was listening to a CD I just bought, Deep House, Nervous Breakdown Volume 2. On there was a track called "I did this for the shelter". In my own messed up timewarped mind I was thinking as though I'm going to get these great lights for the Shelter too... only its my own Shelter and my own Shelter is more of a Shelter then the actual Shelter as the Shelter is now condos. Whoa.... :p

    So because of those lights and that CD I had the idea to do this mix from that point on. Theres a few Shelter specific tracks in this mix and the rest is just guess work as I never got to attend one of the AMAZING house music nights at the Shelter. I only have a few tracks and my own imagination to figure out what went on from there. At least I actually got to go to the Shelter for that one night, Nasa Rewind and for that I feel very blessed !!!!

    Though now that I think of it, the one song that epitomizes The Shelter (IMHO) is Logic-The Warning. That's the song I heard when I went there and that's the song I would hear on the Hot 97 radio promo. I think the original Shelter is condos now. I don't go into NYC much these days because........there is really very little reason to. I would cry for a world that is now gone, but I still have happy memories to bring a smile on my face.
