Emanating from the mists of NYC´s over–populated airwaves since 1999, Tim Sweeney´s Beats In Space show has long been a beacon of quality, originality and cutting edge music on a weekly basis for electronic music fans world–wide.

This special two disc compilation celebrates 15 years of the BIS radio show, label and musical movement. The open minded approach to music and quality control that makes BIS is all down to Tim Sweeney´s flawless programming and dedication to his audience. The first disc is a live mix captured in the WNYU 89.1 studio featuring a host of exclusive tracks and edits from from Azari & III, Edwin Starr, Dukes Of Chutney & Secret Circuit, with thirteen of the sixteen tracks exclusive to the project.
