Every holiday season, I like to dust off the decks, dig into the Mojoplex archives and create a themed mix CD for my closest friends. It was only a few short years ago that I had spent nearly six months and my entire forture in search of the raw materials to create an epic that no DJ had dared to attempt: an entire mix of sci-fi dance music.
I scoured the earth in seach of geek-friendly disco, house and techno, refusing to rest until I had found enough material to fill an entire CD. In terms of nerdiness, the vinyl I uncovered was no less than black gold.
Only a handful of copies of this legendary mix were ever produced and I swore an oath to all who received it that they were the chosen few and would be the only ones to possess it for all time.
But they don’t read this blog so I uploaded an MP3 of the mix for you guys here:

Some of it you’ll be familiar with (Meco Star Wars), some of it you won’t (an ultra-rare remix of the Prisoner theme) but one thing is certain – you’ll be able to spend the weekend grooving to the first-ever non-stop, hour-long continuous dance mix of sci-fi music!
If you’d like to burn it to CD, the image at the top of this post is the back cover and the one below is the front (click for hi-res).
NOTE: This mix is provided for promotional purposes only; it is not meant for resale or bartering. For booking information, please contact using the “about me” page.
