Approved By No-One...the Sycophantic Dreams of Colatron vol. 2 (the 1am Sessions)

Right, on to the biggie.
Here's volume 2 of my trilogy (or whatever this will run to before I change direction) of the Sycophant.

I was determined to try something a little different from the first, learning on my mistakes and trying to get a bit more mixing on the go. It didn't turn out that way, but it inspired more of my own works (see posts below), I explored a few more genres, and I managed to get my favourite TV theme tune of all time in there (from the legendary "Legend of Tim Tyler - the Boy Who Lost His Smile" - the worst dubbed 70's children's show ever).
There's a few nods to some of my heroes in there, DJ Shadow (obviously), Z*Trip (not so obvious, but I opened a set with Iron Man, and had a go at recreating his amazing live blend of Janice Joplin and DJ Shadow); there's some current top smash hits; some more classic trance mixed with some very X-rated lyrics, some classic indie/dance crossover, and Uri Gellar.

I think it shows progress from the last one, but I am biased. I'm also exhausted (4:30am Saturday night/Sunday morning, 1:30am this morning) so there won't be one of these for at least....oooh...another 2 or 3 weeks.
