The first 8 minutes of DJ Rap's tape begins with the end of Andy C's set.

There are quite a few other tapes with similar beginnings/endings (whoever did the editing on these recordings made a real mess), but it doesn't really spoil the fact that this is, overall, an outstanding tape pack - in addition to the great DJ sets, there's some truly phenomenal MCing in places. Takes me right back to the mid-to-late 1990s, when I was still a regular at D&B events in London.

Personal favourites are the Hype, Brockie and Blackmarket sets, but there are absolutely no substandard tapes here, all are excellent.
