Very Early Will-E-Tell Mixtape (1991)



Recorded at his mum's house in Camberwell, it's typical early Will party music.
For the uninitiated, Will was one of Melbourne's rave DJ pioneers – and possibly also it's first superstar DJ; and this is the earliest tape I have of his, mid 1991 I think. Programming and mixing is pretty tight, but why he put “Another Sleepless Night” on half way through the "Mind Fuck" side beats the shit out of me.

    1. Just a local old fuck but a man of legend. True story; I knew Will as an acquaintance but he still knows my name. My wife (who is 7 years my junior) knew him and was one of his 'groupies' well before I met her. Will-e-tell rocked like a mother fucker from the early 90s until well into the naughties. Top bloke too. It was pretty funny watching my wife get all giggly sitting at the same table as him at the blogger's wedding.
