DJ Sparx - "Obliverated"

The rave scene in Cleveland was vibrant and active in the 90s, with DJs like Mike Filly, Rob Sherwood, and Dan Curtain. Some amazing parties happened in that town, including the first ever 420 party, thrown by Spawntaneous Productions. I was lucky enough to attend.

Among the DJs in Spawntaneous' roster was Mike Sparks aka DJ Sparx, who I befriended for a time when I lived there. I was given one of his mixes on cassette, which thankfully is still in my possession, albeit a bit worse for wear. I was able to convert it to MP3, though I had to use some scotch tape.

Please enjoy Mike's mix in its crunchy, old school glory:
