Mix History
Well it all started after stumbling across a rarities FTP site run by one Bart Lammey... I noticed that he had done a few remixes of his own, "I want it all" I think it was and it kinda inspired me to try something similar. I had in the back of my mind what I'd like to do with "Heaven for Everyone", putting back Roger's middle bit while keeping the 1995 Made In Heaven feel to it. A few days later "Queen & The Cross - Heaven For Everyone (Freddie Vocals)" was released on my website, then called "Voyager" . "Voyager" then at http://members.xoom.com/rdr/ was one of the first Queen mp3 sites giving Queenfans the then unheard of opportunity to download rare Queen & related tracks for free which previously could only have been heard by a few privileged few with bucketloads of cash to spend! The site was very popular and I put my Heaven mix for download and it was an instant success! :-) Because people actually liked what I was doing with the music, I mean I never got any hate mail, I continued mixing. I can't remember the exact chronological order of my mixes but mixes of "Too Much Love Will Kill You" and "Resurrection" being among my early ones. The reason why I can't remember is because I was a busy student at the time (and still am really!!) doing Radio production and one lazy afternoon listening to the production music gave me an idea for one of my best mixes and the first to use non-Queen music - "We Will Rock You - Christmas Mix".
As time wore on and my catalogue of mixes got larger, I moved my site to it's current abode of http://www.floss.co.uk and changed the name to "The Floss Mixes". I was still providing the Queen internet community with rare material and in most cases enhancing the audio quality significantly at the same time, but with other websites passing my files off as their own, I descided to make my mixes the focus of my website.
Around the beginning of 2000, I was contacted by Greg Brooks, The Queen Archivist, who wanted CD Audio copies of my mixes so he could catalogue them and also to let Jim Beach hear them. Several phone calls later the idea of professionally re-recording some of my mixes in the Queen studios with Justin Shirley-Smith came about but I am still awaiting the go-ahead from Mr Beach. He still hasn't gotten around to listening to my CDs yet, but as Greg said, "This is normal for Jim...". Fingers Crossed... :-)
