So, a tad disappointing there was no announcement or obvious new "full" track... HOWEVER... these last two hours were incredible! It's as if BOC have passed down a worn book of all of their inspiration. Just think of the amount of track's we have never heard of that we can now explore. Over a dozen new artists to get into. Love it.

The interludes were on another level. I swear they were touching each track in some way or another.

I wonder if that Aquarius mash-up is where it first began. The Grace Jones sample, then they built it from there.

dunno about that, because it had the "i'm listening" sample which - unless i'm wrong here, which is possible - was only in later versions of the track, and not early ones.

Oh, I also think I sourced the Swine Flu PSA, it's probably from one of these from 1976: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RP_uTg_VzVQ

I really don't see Aquarius as being part of a mash up or alternative version but rather a few small samples thrown over the Grace Jones/Illusion mashup as a BOC calling card/signature.

Looks like Mexi got a like.
Surely this is all part of the likes and numbers game, though.
