Just a “Old School Head” and a big lover of “Real” music from most genres and a little of not so “Real”! New Beat, Hip Hop (some Rap), Reggae, Jazz, Classical, Soundtracks, Drum 'n' Bass, Motown, Synth Pop, Balearic (whatever that is....?) and most things in between without all the bullshit!

Big hates/dislikes are, Country ‘n’ Western and Bad Pop music (everything that it stands for and that surrounds it - PERIOD!!), Rip-Off postage prices form Discog sellers (you know who you are!), Cruelty to Animals, Pedophiles, Assad and ISIS!! Peace/Love/Unity XX

Supersonic Waves - lyrics used on “Dr. Octagon’s Blue Flowers” Wonder if RF were inspired/influenced to give it this title? Nonetheless, but who else better to feature for them was Kool Keith - makes sense really!

Anti Pop's first 3 albums was their best material.

"Happy Bizzness" being a "very" loose remake (using the same lyrics) from an old track of Billie Holiday's "Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do"! Check it out.

Nice early remix by Oakenfold, & whilst it didn’t have the “Land Of Oz” or “Future” feel that Oakey was knocking out around those early acid house days with that Balearic feel, this on the other hand had a nice chunky Breakbeat roll that was perfect for ... See full review

Wicked Dubs! With the right licks & all the flavours in the right places, you are blessed with a set of fantastic lush dubs (if it is only four tracks) that are very refreshing & that makes you want more!
