Co Owner of Collector Cave a small record, CD, DVD, Retro Toy & Collectables shop, 15-19 Stokes Croft, Bristol, BS1 3PY. I have loved collecting records and cds since I was very young. Starting with Adam & The Ants at the age of 8, my musical influences and tastes have changed over the years with a particular fondness for dance music. My favourite genres include Liquid Funk, Drum & Bass, Jungle and Hardcore, Techno, Ambient, Deep House and more. Being a ignorant teenager, I dismissed other forms of music until I started to buy and sell records. Thankfully my love for exploring musical genres and styles has lead me to appreciate many of its forms including Classic 60's & 70's Blues Rock, Prog Rock, Heavy / Hard Rock, Soul/Funk/Motown, 80s US Hip Hop & Electro, Dub, Blues, Electronica and Jazz. After many years on this amazing site, I bit the bullet in 2014 and started up as a seller, with a firm commitment to selling quality music, graded honestly at great prices supported by a simple and straightforward service.

Solid EP as others point out below. 'Nan In' on side B is a beautifully deep and searching track of the highest quality. This will always sound futuristic and modern due to the quality of the production and high class arrangement. Sick 4 tracker

The MK Remix is stunningly good. Proper chugging deep house with that huge thumping 808 kick, Detroit style bassline and simple but brilliant arrangement. Early nineties dance is gold and this is one of the under the radar gems from that period.

Not sure why there is so much hate for this record, that Nero remix is amazing, and still has all the right elements to be memorable. Love the bassline and the vibe.

A side is garbage pop step though

This EP is an essential addition to the Sci Wax family of releases. Not only does it feature 2 monster classics from the golden period of the label, but the addition of 'Deep River' & 'King Riddim' makes this one hell of a release to own.

To be fair, Soldier is a real banger as well, with that Hip Hop flavour, but as others rightly point out the B side is the star of the show with its fast tempo and crisp as hell breaks. Unrelenting Jungle madness from the master

Two nicely contrasting styles from 96. Hard as nails dark industrial vs a much more eerie and atmospheric drum funk experiment. A great release of timeless futuristic music. The pinnacle of programming and sound engineering from these two

Trust is an excellent dub wise roller that still stands up today, due on part to Calibre's less is more approach to many of his tunes. Simple but effective club banger
