Recently dug this out and whacked the volume up - boy, did it not disappoint!! I'm taIking about the Ectasy re-fix - Guaranteed to get you moving! I'm a big fan of the original (Centurion mix).. but this is a clever dance floor bomb. Max credit to Jam City! See full review

I don't own many box sets, but I'm sure glad I bought this one! Ever since I first heard the band on the Minimal Wave tapes I was an instant fan, and soon after purchased Lost and Late which I adored (and still do). The original LP's were out of my... See full review

I was gutted when I missed out on this.. and wasn't expecting the Tuff Kong repress so missed that too!! If you have a copy for sale, hit me up!

This album is superb - don't normally buy instro albums but every track is quality. Does anyone know where you can get the tracks WITH the featured rappers too?

The Too Shy sample does spoil the tune somewhat but the rest of the track, and indeed the rest of the EP is quality!

I've bought some amazing Hip Hop records recently but this is certainly one of the best. Can't wait to hear more from Nugz. An excellent rota of rappers here, but even the instrumental interludes are packed with prime beats and samples. So glad to... See full review

One of the best albums of 2019. So many great tracks, Butcher Lords feat Benny and the Pete Rock produced For A Reason are stand out tracks. So glad to own this

Great compilation from that classic era when turntablism was starting to develop technically and the DMC championships were getting global recognition. This is a bargain LP with loads of great tracks even if you aren't particularly looking for DJ... See full review

Serious dance floor destroyer that can be put to effective use in a range of sets. With the recent renewed interest in The Beatfreaks and Blowfelt, it will only take some DJ to drop this in a set to get the kids searching for it.. and the prices... See full review

It's all about Physical Data - a really solid and unique tune. A real bargain for that track alone

At 2:38 - The Element - G O O S E B U M P S every tiiime! I bought my mint copy from a 2nd hand store around 2001 and had never heard it before. I got into Reinforced around 1995 so never heard the earlier hardcore stuff. There was a bit of a hardcore... See full review

Even though Melle Mel and crew were considered old school by 1989, they certainly hold their own with this album! White Lines 2 is brought bang up to date and the title track Piano is up there with some of the best from the era - not to be slept on!

Yeah me too! I get at least one message a week asking if I will sell my copy.. it's crazy! NO - I'm not selling.. but I have helped a few people with vinyl rips, but I might have to start saying no.. EDIT - I AM saying NO, so please, no more requests... See full review

Recently purchased this is part of a bundle, and very pleasantly surprised. I was recently reminded how great 1990 was in terms of experimentalism. The new sampling technology was taken to it's limits and the UK were ahead of the game with regards to... See full review

I bought my copy here on discogs just over 6 years ago and I didn't pay much for it. I first heard on a mix by Brighton DJ Donga and I also heard him play it out on NYE - the bass is serious! In fact I blew a really nice speaker playing this too loud.... See full review

The ONLY D'n'B tune I bought in 2000.. I didn't buy another until 2014. (admittedly I missed out on some great new stuff from the likes of Breakage etc) but I'm so glad I have this. Total Science did absolute justice to the OG and created another... See full review

'Check Me Out' is one of my all time faves from the early tech step era. It's got the hip hop samples, those classic steppin' breaks, and such a dark but grooooovy bassline. Better than Killamanjaro IMO. Get yourself a copy!

Hi. I received mine a couple of days ago, so you should get yours in the next day or two I imagine. There's still some available through the website and already inflated prices from resellers on discogs..
posted a comment on Darqwan Versus Mark One - Round One. over 3 years ago
NO comment! Both sides are quality. Bigga Times is an amen stormer that can be dropped alongside contemporary 140 jungle tunes and still stand its head high. As for the flip, Mark One was one on top form in this era. Alongside Raindance, the Stargate... See full review

I saw a Precision Breaks takeover at The End in room 2 and loved it.. this is one of my fave releases on Octagon!
posted a review of Baby Fox - Rain. over 3 years ago
The Krust remix of rain is simply superb. I'm aware it's not to everyone's taste but I've always loved it. Krust keeps the best of the elements found on the flip (which I'm pretty sure includes a sample from the film 'Taxi Driver') - and then puts... See full review

A quality release. Perhaps not as in demand as some of the other recent releases on Deep Jungle, but for me this is one of the best. IMO a superior release to Dangerous/Greetings which is currently demanding more £ on the used market. Cocaine is such... See full review

A great release from the 'golden era' of dubstep. Highly underrated this one.. particularly 'Thugee' - and a better 12" than Merkaba in my opinion. I'd grab a copy before prices rise! Love to know where that sample comes from! Is it "worship Kali with... See full review

Recently purchased this one and can't stop playing it. I've been going through alot of hip hop from 88 to 90 and this really stands out. Production is superior to alot of other releases and the rapping is quality. I bought it for the A side but the B... See full review

This album IS the Tony Thorpe from The Moody Boys and all the credits attributed to Tony Addis are also the same Tony Thorpe. However I would say that the photograph used for 'Tony Addis' with the Malcolm X poster behind appears to be a different... See full review

Totally agree.. which I why I was very patient and waited over two years for a reasonably priced (still not cheap) copy to come up and snapped it up. Essential purchase and prized record

Really good selection of tracks here. Glad I took a chance on this back in 2007. Some serious acid bangers here. Top stuff!

Oh my! Recently 'rediscovered' this one and boy, it's all about the 'dub mix'! It doesn't sound dated at all, and many house tracks from 1990 have drum patterns that sound very much from that specific period. In fact there are no sounds at all that... See full review

Oh dear, what a tragedy. And by this, I mean - this is one criminally overlooked slab of wax. Rumoured to be a pair of fairly well known UK producers who worked on this project for at least a year, having some fun and not taking it too seriously. At... See full review

Brings back great memories for me. I had an Alba mp3 player with a very small memory, enough for one mix at a time, and I had downloaded a mix from Heny G, probably on Rinse.. and this was a stand out track. I'm not a massize Dubstep fan but I had a... See full review

From what I heard there were many, many variants on the Pulse riddim.. but you can pick this one up for peanuts and in my opinion this is still one of the best. The original and most famous release - Pulse X by Musical Mob is much more affordable now... See full review
