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.
