This is the first of three Avalanches Breezeblock mixes doing the rounds, though this is the one that’s really special.

|Freddy Fresh – 1st June 1999???
I can’t find the tracklisting for this one (anyone?). This one’s a cool funky mix, a bit cheesy at times but you just know you’d be loving it if you were hearing it live.

Unkle vs Scratch Perverts – some time in 1999?
James Lavelle, Tony Vegas, Prime Cuts and 5 decks.
Couldn’t for the life of me find a tracklist for this, though there’s nothing too obscure on there so might try and list them myself sometime. It’s largely made up of tracks off Psyence Fiction so shouldn’t be too hard. Not sure on it’s exact date, but when it’s introduced it says it’s around the time ‘Be there’ was released which I think was sometime in 1999. Highlight of the mix has to be a remix of that track, typical Lavelle remix – absoultely rocks.

Mr Scruff – unknown date
There have been a few other Mr Scruff Breezeblocks but their tracklists don’t suit the mix, think this one’s quite old and the archives on Radio 1’s website only go back to 2002.
It’s a pretty good eclectic mix and worth a listen if just for the little adverts interspersed throughout it prompting companies like The Seventies Freezer Center, Morecabme, Chelmsford Erotic Telephone Banking and Shower Jazz (which sounds like it could possibly be more entertaining than any of these mix sets).
