Yes i agree strongly with the below comment. Nu Foundation was a name i wanted to lookout for very closely after his massive powerful release on WARPED 28 in 2008. some rave tunes are just happy but his just seem to leave you wanting much much more, the track in question is so emotional, every part of it is beautiful, it will be one of my prized record to play for many years to come. I was gutted to read that he was i'll then past away, seems such a waste of a talent that was just getting started no doubt. obviously your heart goes out to the loved ones closest to him, great loss to the hardcore scene, RIP Nu Foundation.

RIP Nu Foundation. He was a great producer. His music had a sense of depth and emotion to it rarely seen in UK hardcore.

Essential listening would be his remix of Cat Like Thief's "It Starts With A Whisper" released, posthumously, for free. I rarely use the word "beautiful" to describe hardcore but that tune is truly beautiful.
