"The Resurrection" only really seemed to be played by LTJ Bukem using it in one of his Best Yaman tapes LTJ Bukem - Hardcore Volume 11

"The Future" was also used by Bukem on an earlier Yaman mix DJ LTJ Bukem* - Hardcore Volume 9

From the Reissue project

So, in 1992 whilst living in Tottenham, Paul (Chalke) and his best pal Longers came back from a Dreamscape rave fully 'beaned up' on ecstasy being 'proper on one' Chalke got into the studio, while Longers carried on the party vibes by being the 'cocktail maker' for that studio session as it rolled into Saturday daytime and into the following night. The outcome of that long drug-fuelled session would be 'The Resurrection'.

A little while later, with Chalke now MCing for Mr. C of The Shamen at his Brain Club residency in Soho, London, Chorks wanted to get a flipside done to 'The Resurrection'. So he called in Longers 'The Vibes Man' and the pair went out to an Outer Limits rave in Milton Keynes for inspiration. On their arrival back in Tottenham, Chalke hit the studio again, with Longers by his side as always and the creativity flowed, the amens rolled and the session bubbled over into two versions of 'The Future' - ('The Future Original / The Future Now').

RIP Gary 'Longers' Church. 1966 - 2002

Bukem played an early version of The Future in his Dreamscape V set on 18th December 1992. Forward thinking or what!!

I think I know why you never heard Resurrection out much besides Bukem playing it. It's a pain to mix! Seems super slow with bad eq so it's pretty hard to hear any distinct bass or snares. I tried 10 ways to Sunday to mix this in and could not, while I'm no Bukem I've been at this for a long time. Still one of my all time faves though!

Yep the Resurrection is a special tune indeed... brought to my ears courtesy of one of the Yaman mix tapes by Bukem. Quite shockingly he is the only DJ I heard play this track back then!? The atmosphere and melancholic mood is stunning on this tune, and I absolutely adore the switch into the dark haunting string around the 2.15 mark add to that tight rolling beats and some great samples and excellent composition and the end result is something quite unique and ahead of its year! ...an awesome piece of music.

'The Resurrection' contains samples from the movie 'The Evil Dead', 1981.

I agree with Meltdown here. A completely unknown artist (surely someone more famous but with a different moniker, maybe even Bukem himself - certainly sounds like his style in places) that on this vinyl has produced tracks that are before their time. The Resurrection especially sounds more like a track from 1995 than a track from 1993. The Future (apt title indeed) also could be mistaken for a track from 1994. Maybe its different style at the time contributed to the fact that this piece of vinyl was, and is, rarely seen or heard.

Wow, I can´t believe that there´s still no comment on this true masterpiece of hardcore/breakbeat bizness. I first heard this track on a Bukem mixtape from about 1993. "The Resurrection" was and is the standout track on the whole mixtape in my opinion. Sure, Bukem always did spin the deepest and dopest shit back then but this track really hits the spot. I love the deep and mysterious mood here and its really nearly unbelievable that this track is from 1993. Its the same like Dj Crystl´s "Meditation" and Bukem´s "Who Knows Vol.1". These both tracks are from 1993 too but they´re all far ahead of its time. The producer "Chalke" is totally unknown to me. It also seems that this record was his only production which is a pitty because who knows what killer tracks he could produce in the years after on. Sheer class! If you find a copy then grab it quickly because it seems to be like rare as hell!! I´m lucky that I´ve found a copy finally after years of searching.
