Rising High Dub samples Schoolly-D - Put Your Fila's On https://www.discogs.com/Schoolly-D-Schoolly-D/master/153883 "You know we rock, we roll, we jam and we mix" . The sample appears at the end of Schoolly-D's track. P.s Vocal sample taken from a 'Jesse Jackson' speech. Which iit is not. But If Jesse Jackson had actually said this to the then President a lot of people would have applauded him! ;)

This is what the game was missing in 90-91...

Rising High Dub! Tracks like this were slowly forming the jungle sounds which were on the way in... Moment In Time is a fantastic bleep roller and a big favourite of the likes of DJ Kenny Ken, Randall etc.

Catchy drum loop, cool hip hop sample (don't think it's a Jesse Jackson speech as above?!) and hypnotic bleep keys... Complimented by a memorable b line. This one rolls & rolls. I've played this out - a place will go nuts! One for your collection.

"Rising High Dub" was basically the basis for Project One "A Few Dollars More" which was released shortly after this, both use the same bassline, beats & happy mondays sample but each has different elements on top, "A Few Dollars More" just nudges it for me, but I guess this was the bigger tune back in the day.....

It really was all about the "Rising High Dub" with this release in 1990. There was definitely a marked preference by the London crowd for this mix. The other mixes are more in the italo piano vane which appealed more to residents north of Birmingham or across the channel. Whereas this mix contained funky, skippy breaks - think The DOC - Portrait Of A Masterpiece - hypnotic bleeps and an infectious dubwise, sub-bass groove which got everyone's head nodding.

Being dropped into practically everything. From straight house, hip hop, hip-house, breakbeat, acid, new beat, balearic to techno.

This kind of stuff was loosely called "ragga or dub techno" at the time and possibly a precursor which contributed to the breakbeat hardcore and jungle techno sounds emerging later on. Everyone who was about at the time knows this warehouse classic. Blaring out of every warehouse, underground club and illegal venue. Not forgetting all the subwoofers and basstubes in ravers' cars it must've rattled and shaked to death.

A remixed version was soon released in a much more bleepy, melodic, hyperactive. And for me, an even better & more accomplished form under the name of Project 1 "A Few Dollars More" which appeared on the Project 1 EP (Cat# TTT 033). Which also happened to be Project One's debut release.
