I set a new land speed record today. I got stuck at work doing over-time on the one day I need to be home by a certain time -- to start the show. So that explains the 5 minute late start. Would have been worse had the roads been as busy as they are when I usually leave. No one even noticed I bet. I'm anal about punctuality though, so it drove me nuts.
This show was a bit of a brain fart in slow motion. I had a Detroit Techno theme request 3 weeks ago and I actually put together a Detroit Techno show (now to be Bleep 48). Between the time I finished that mix Mark said he'd be willing to do a show. Bump goes my mix.
I then forgot about the next Bleep being Mark's. I made the mix he gave me available for download. Brain Fart. I can't even blame the stress of Holidays. I don't celebrate. Brain Fart.
The word Miffed was used.
So I checked my server logs and saw there wasn't too many downloads yet (<100). So I hid the file, edited the news entry and prepared myself and the mix for Bleep.

This mix is Mark performing Live in Taganrog, Russia. It was an event hosted by Phubriq, a Russian Net-Label. Vadz, Mark's host while there, and one of the Dj's that night also gave me his set with tracklist. It's available here. Techno City 2 looked like a fun night. The Garage Club -- where it was held -- Looks a hell of a lot swankier than anything where I live. There was also a lot of people obviously there to party and jam to Mark's set. How do I know all this? No I didn't merely take the word of someone. I watched the Video
