The Beat Oracle is back and revisiting some classic sounds from the mid to late nineties and early aughts. These are selections that (in part) define a large section of the Beat Oracle DNA. Many longtime stalwarts of the show are featured: DJ Shadow, Nightmares On Wax, Plaid, Christian Kleine, Biosphere, Drexciya, and so many more. It’s a deep 2+ hour mix of essential listening!

Whether these tracks are embedded in your memory, or you’re hearing them for the first time, we encourage you to have a listen and thoroughly enjoy. Thanks for tuning in!
