The background to this project is that it began as a gift of 50 tracks for my fiftieth birthday (… yep I know!) DOM (the selector) had just moved back from living in NYC since the early 90s and had been digging up these gems during his time there.

So instead of consigning them all to my iTunes library to be mixed up and lost I decided to embark on putting them together as a whole. I wanted to keep true to the original creators and not muck about with the originals. Many are longer versions of tracks that I hadn’t come across before and so I wanted to keep that long player experience, so no edits, no added samples just low maintenance blends! The result is an epic just under five-O hours of listening pleasure!

The Brooklyn Bridge street photo used on the cover was taken back in the day by DOM and is where he lived. This scene was once used for Sergio Leone’s 1984 Once Upon a Time in America film poster… So I thought the mix title should use the same font and design. And oh yeah apologies for the title, one of the included tracks was the Hawaii Five-O theme tune (fiftieth etc) and that’s the closest I got to it!
