I like Ray Keith, he’s a good dude. Ray played a few gigs in Texas in 2000. First in Dallas and a few months later in Houston. When I picked him up to play for us in Dallas and were heading towards the venue, a recliner falls off a truck just in front of us […]
I just tweeted that I was on the hunt for a new mix to check out. Within minutes I’d stumbled on Sonic Rampage boss, Pearsall’s Surgical Sounds set. A proper tribute to the drum & bass legend Doc Scott. Tracklist: 01. System 7 – Interstate (Doc Scott Remix) (Butterfly) 02. Empirion – B.E.T.A. (Doc Scott […]
For years I had this mix tagged as Kenny Ken & GQ – Studio Megamix Vol. 1 (1994), but I finally found out that the mix is actually an A.W.O.L/World Dance live recording that was included on a double CD set called Hardcore Junglistic Fever Volume 1 on Strictly Hardcore Records. And really isn’t that […]
The Outlook Festival, one of Europes’s biggest and baddest, has asked the original “crackhouse” don to knock together a mix for them. It’s a precision blend of tech house, classic reworks, some bass joints, a few deeper tunes, and (of course) the aforementioned crackhouse sound.
Our old great plains brethren, EHL of Warm Communications, has put together a rinsing old school jungle mix that harkens back to his Warm Radio days. Lucky Spin, Dee Jay, Good Looking, Higher Limits, and my favorite Adam F tune of all time….it’s been the perfect compliment to my morning breakfast tacos. My only wish […]
While going over a “Where Are They Now” article on Thump, I came across another article about AK1200 that was written by DJ DB. It chronicled some of Dave AK’s achievements in breaking breakbeat culture to the US. You wouldn’t know it now, but Orlando was a big spot for early hardcore and jungle thanks […]
DJ Zinc has put together an interesting retrospective mix series he’s entitled “Trust Me I Was There” which starts in 1986 and works its way forward. Check out the first three entries and keep checking his Soundcloud account for additional mixes in the series. This is the first of a series of mixes I’ll be […]
Thanks to the magic of Twitter and a re-tweet from MC Jakes, I saw this posted by the ageless DJ Slipmatt. It’s a live recording of Slipmatt and MC Magicka’s set from Dance Planet Pure Energy II from January 29th, 1994. Loving it!
As soon as I finish listening to the Shadow Child set, along comes a tweet from Total Science announcing the upload of a new jungle/old skool/hardcore mix! GOING IN!
Time to step into the way back machine for a mix that’s been floating around twitter today. It’s Daniel Billy Bunter’s radio show mix from Kool FM London featuring a ton of old hardcore and early jungle tunes from 92-93. Hat tip to the Purrin Lion for the link! Here’s a bit about Billy Daniel […]
