Sample heads...grab this one for Skin Deep, a cracking drum duel with choice breaks.

Various - Give Peace A Dance: A CND Compilation as reviewed by djhombre

Had this on cassette originally, picked up the CD recently in a bargain bin - 99p! Watch out though as the CD looks like it has disc rot - very yellow and chunks missing...so rip it while you can!!! Great album though.

The bandcamp download code which came with the bundle gave you all the above tracks and their instrumental versions

Oaysis - Remix as reviewed by djhombre

My sleeve for this is a sort of purple-ish colour, rather than the orangey-red in the featured pictures...I suspect quality control at Formation wasn't terribly tight back then?!

Awesome mix proving the UK hip hop is a serious force to be reckoned with.

Always a firm favourite of Dr S Gachet from way back then too. Had a feeling he used to have 2 copies and jump between them.

Slave One - Bantha Trax djhombre

This featured in an old UNKLE / James Lavelle mix CD. Nice obscure 8bit sounds.

Friends Of Matthew - Out There as reviewed by djhombre

October 18, 2015
As featured in an old episode of Inspector Morse (on UK TV featuring John Thaw)...the episode was all about a girl getting mixed up in the rave culture and this track played out through the rave scenes in a huge old house and I think towards the credits at the end.

It took me a while to track it down to this release though.

Some great tracks on here...I never realised Shirley Bassey was so funky.

Great collection of soulful funk. The Knock On Wood cover is awesome. Worth checking out. I only bought this because of the cover!

The Avalanches - Gimix djhombre

August 22, 2015
Not all cassettes and inlays are the same as shown. The band were selling cassettes without the "contains elements of..." wording and plain black cassettes whilst on tour during 2000.

Ike & Tina Turner - Proud Mary / Funkier Than A Mosquita's Tweeter as reviewed by djhombre

August 15, 2015
Both tracks ooze quality, funk and grit. Side 2 is the one for the dancefloor though.

Ike & Tina Turner & The Ikettes - I Want To Take You Higher as reviewed by djhombre

August 15, 2015
2 stone cold classic funk tracks. Contact High is my favourite, very druggy as the title would suggest, but tough drums and a frenetic pace makes this great for the dancefloor.

Various - Kenny Dope Classic Breakbeats as reviewed by djhombre

June 30, 2015
This is a super-nice selection of heavy breakbeat hip hop tracks. Well worth tracking down if you can.

Tales From The Unexpected samples "Charade" by Ronnie Aldrich & his 2 pianos and the London Symphony Orchestra. As found on PFS 4064 or SPA 160.

Jeez...I'm a geek!

ESG - Moody / UFO as reviewed by djhombre

Worth picking up to get a nice loud & clean pressing on 12" of both of these great tracks.

Nice open disco breaks in the middle of this track...one for the block party peeps

Cassetteboy djhombre

September 23, 2014
While I love Cassetteboy and have done since buying the Parker Tapes on a whim when it was new...the irony is that there are no releases available on cassette format. You would have thought that would have been an obvious tie-in somewhere...maybe CassetteStoreDay 2015?!

I.C.P. - Free & Equal as reviewed by djhombre

September 20, 2014
An excellent 12" - totally underrated. Featuring the familiar Bowa sample ... although not sure what came first. The Leftfield mixes were very popular on the UK rave scene. Carl Cox used to play it in a lot of sets between 1991/92.

Kenny Dope* - Wild Style Breakbeats djhombre

August 15, 2014
Nice loud pressings, subtle but much needed edits by Kenny Dope bringing the tracks out much longer than originally created. The seventh 7" features some nice Wild Style graffiti etchings on the flip side.

Box sets ordered directly from Kay Dee should be signed by Charlie A.

DJ Spinback* / DJ Gwange - Legendary Volume 2 djhombre

August 15, 2014
Much underrated release, quality darkness on this 12"
