      I will never forget being given a recording of a set at a free party sometime in 1996, Dave & H at Pinnay, it was a cracking mix of Oldskool Hardcore, Jungle and Darkside, unfortunately I didn't have a clue what any of the tracks were called, so I decided to try and track them down, I found the first couple really easy, Bam Bam - Where's your child and Earth leakage trip - No Idea but then the next track evaded me for years, one sunday morning I was going through some audio DVD's, I had four in all spanning from 1990 to 1993, I was literally opening folder after folder and flipping through each song, after about 2 hours I opened a folder entitled React and then came very close to falling off my chair from the shock of hearing the tune I was looking for which turned out to be Mega City 2 - London To Essex In 3 Hours / Darker Side Of Evil, I have maybe two tracks left to find, which I am convinced could be either A Guy Called Gerald or Spiral Tribe! or Not as I've flipped through everything track I can find by both!!!!!!
      Yes I would Love to see Mega City 2 get there awesome releases Repressed again. 👍🍺😁😲

        All about Darker Side Of Evil for me! Truly belongs in the very heart of the darkside era of late '92 and '93!

          Any chance of his getting repressed by anyone please. Appeals to both fans of oldskool darkside tracks and piano tracks.

                Released right before the Jungle/Hardcore split. One of the very last true UK hardcore releases. Darkcore style but with chirpy melodies & helium vocals. A massive track cained by Mickey Finn-HUGE at the early Sanctaury Raves.
