Decoded Magazine co-founder and director Daz Pearson has this week dipped into his vinyl collection for a selection of records which to him, and many others I’m sure is a special era of progressive house and progressive trance between 1998 and 2002.
“Global Underground was my bible, Paul Oakenfold was playing his Essential Mix World Tour and hosting Urban Soundtracks on Galaxy Radio, John 00 Fleming‘s ‘For Your Ears Only’ blew my mind. An hour is such a short time frame however, it was by far the most fun I’ve had putting together a mix for a long time. Maybe I’ll do a part two next time round” – Daz Pearson
Since his earlier involvement in the scene he has gone from regular residencies which has seen him play events from Sankeys Manchester to Bora Bora Ibiza, event promotion including co-promotion at Gatecrasher Birmingham, Ministry of Sound London and Pacha London, not to mention co-hosting and DJ’ing at Global Underground and Saved Records New Year’s Eve event at Birmingham’s iconic Q-Club.
His Rooted Deeply mix series focused his passion for unearthing great music from across many genres of underground dance music, after a short break due to focusing on Decoded Magazine he has now relaunched the series as Rooted Deeper featuring brand new and forthcoming releases from artists and record labels featured throughout Decoded Magazines label feature series and more.
