Profile

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.

This EP is absolutely wicked. Have to say for a new producer the quality of this EP is outstanding with real old skool sensibilities, matched with new skool production values. A2 is a real dance floor ripper, with great drums and energy, the other... See full review

This track is amazing and is an under the radar gem. Love this sample on the opening of this record. Sampled to great effect by the 'Blapps Posse' on their huge track on Don't hold back 91.

Have to agree with the others, this is a truly brilliant release with very good quality music that is deep as an ocean. 20 years on it still sounds outstanding.

Nic Chagall smashes it with a ultra sexy remix. What a tune, proper hands in the air stuff. Who cares if its a bit commercial, it popular for a reason. Yes it might have been over played but blame the DJ not the producers.

Some of these tracks have aged better than others. My faves in 2021 are 'You Don't Have To Run' and 'Without Sound'. I like the other tracks but style wise they don't gel so well with more up to date stuff. A bit of a low point for Hospital here... See full review

Side A is a bid dollop of Liquid Funk as you would expect from the home of the genre. Big fat bassline, jazz funk vibes. Nice track. The other side is more stripped back and experimental. Nice switch up.

Both of these tracks are brilliant. The vibes are high on Testimony which has sultry vocals, uplifting jazz elements and punchy beats, that weave around a huge groaning bass-line. Pure Summer flavour.

The drums on Jericho are my kind of sound,... See full review

The Beginning probably should be played at 'The End' of the night as its hard to beat a track of this calibre and intensity. It sounds like a monster chewing on a bridge, these are super crunchy beats man
