PURE GIRL TWIRL.... If you were lucky enough to experience the HI-NRG from 1989 to 1993, you were probably swept away by the river of intense music flowing out of Italy. Enjoy the trip down the rapids on this mix, girls.

In the late 80's and early 90's, the Euro dance scene was evolving, Slower BPM "Italo Disco" (Albert One, Miko Mission, Silver Pozzoli and many others) had evolved to the high BPM tracks, I believe this was really an influence on the early days of "Techno", "Trance" and "Club Bangers". In the Eurobeat genre, you started seeing records at 130 BPM overshadow anything slower.
High Energy Eurobeat was here and it created a frenzy. Aerobics instructors went berserk over this music because it was fast for high speed cardio workouts and DJ's (like me) were feeding their addiction to it. My Technics 1100 turntables were specially modified to play any speed from 1 RPM to 100 RPM. I made a 130 BPM track play at 160 BPM. The vocals totally chipmunked and it completely ruined the track's integrity, but that's what the aerobics instructors wanted. It really was insane.
Italian labels like Asia Records (SAIFAM), A-Beat-C, Radiorama (SAIFAM) and many others were pumping out these great tracks faster than we could get our hands on them, usually they sold out the first day. High Energy DJ's were fighting for their copy.
I ordered these records from 12" Dance Records in Washington DC and was on the phone with them almost daily to make sure I was reserved MY copy of the newest High Energy Eurobeat. It was crazy.
Here is a genre, that I TRULY love!!! And I LOVED making this mix in 1998 with the tracks at their ORIGINAL speed. Enjoy it.!!!!!!

DJ JoJo Pineau - Albuquerque, NM (I played all these songs in the 80's at Albuqueruque Mining Company, and was the only DJ in this area other than David Zaintz that would touch it, Other DJ's said it was too "Bubblegum", I disagree, and so would my packed dance-floor every single night these songs came on) ALL ORIGINAL 12" VINYL RECORDINGS!!!!!!!!!!

It has taken me the best part of three weeks balancing out the sound, cutting, editing and overlaying, after mixing the tunes together, getting it all sounding as I think it should. The pedant I am... And as a special treat, seeing as this is the ninth installment, with the very likely possibility of not making anymore after this one. I have included a set list of the tracks used within the set, including the names of the overlays used. Although I have left it up to you to decide as to which tracks I have used as overlays and which are not. Because I have made no indication on the set list as to what is which. Have fun listening and please feel free to ad a comment.
