    All tunes are wicked but Lost 9 is the kind of fun yet classy hardcore you’d hear from Orca circa ‘92 and in to ‘93, lovely.

    Lost 10 as well is on a similar wavelength but has a bit of a heavier layer of modern polish to it, which I usually hate in hardcore but is actually done very tastefully here.

    Solid stuff from Orca as to be expected, true masters of their craft, not many artists covered the different facets of breakbeat based music as well as them.

    Edit: to my surprise Lost 10 was actually released on a compilation 1992 and from what I can hear is pretty much unaltered here, if that doesn’t tell you how on the ball Orca were then nothing will.

      All of these tunes are great. Especially lost 9. Massive

        ‘Lost 1’ seems a remix of ‘Magic in You‘, ‘Lost 3’ a later version of ‚My Brother‘ of the Dances With Dolphins’ EP. Anybody knows others? Would indeed be nice to have info in which year which tune was written.

          Does anyone have details of the dates each track was made? I'm guessing Lost 9 (a very fun track) and Lost 10 were from 92 for example. This is a fantastic release by the way, a real feast! My cover arrived with a seam that had come unglued/hadn't been glued at all, but Lee was very quick to promise me a replacement with my next order, which is great customer service!

            This is where it's at, something super special here. Echoes of the Hardcore past with a few unheard gems. Hard to think these have been sat on a DAT Tape for 30 years or so, aren't we lucky!

              The track entitled "Lost 10" was released on Fantazia's First Taste compilation LP in late 1992 and was titled called "Sonar".
