Mark Farina "Bliznobia" 1993.

    This classic mix tape comes to us by one of House Music's most well known and loved DJ's, Mark Farina. Mark was an Chicago native and was involved in the rave and club scene of the early 90's before taking his trademark sound to San Fransisco. Prior to his current mix series "Mushroom Jazz" which will be at number 7 soon, there were a series of mix tapes that gave us his bled of soul full, jazz and house. "Bliznobia" was one of those tapes that with others from that time had Farina tuning in his sound that 16 years later we would still be enjoyed by fans. I'm not sure but it's safe to say that Bliznobia" came out sometime in 1993. I was given this tape to convert to mp3 by a friend and after doing a quick search online I didn't see it up anywhere so I decided to post it on the blog. Being that it was on a 90 min tape, I did my best to clean up the mix and bring up the levels. This one is a classic for sure!
