It just took me ages to remember where the half-speed sample on Blue Mountain is from, really did my head in for a while... without wanting to be explicit the name is the same as another artist on this label!!
posted a comment on DJ Edge - *1. 3 months ago This one? a mate of mine used to call this the "Dixons tune" so you're not the only one who thought that!

When I worked in a record shop many years ago some kid asked me for "that old skool tune that ... See full review

It's a vinyl rip and a fairly noisy one at that, so if you are looking for pristine CD quality you may be disappointed. Still enjoyable, though.

DJ Shafie was not Conrad Shafie aka Blame. Different guy, who stamped all his records with a DJ SHAFIE rubber stamp. The collection was sold off about 10 years ago.

You presumably don't realise that Gilles Peterson started another label since Talkin' Loud closed:
He's presented weekly radio shows on Radio 6 Music (and previously Radio 1) in the UK for the ... See full review

Just noticed it's actually a Jonathan King cover version, so it can fuck right off!

In fairness, it's not supposed to be played at chipmunk speed. Its original speed is 33rpm but someone's recorded it on youtube at 45. At the original speed it's more of a pop affair. Not really my thing regardless - this EP is all about the Vicious ... See full review

He made "Some Justice" a year before this, I'm not sure about "still learning his trade"!

Shut Up & Dance - Alcoholic Beans also sampled it, and was from around the same time - more on the breaks tip, though...

You have this one:

It has the commercially released mix of Yes to Satan, not the rare one on this promo.

Some of the tracks on here are incredibly ahead of their time. 'Cultural Nimrod' and 'False Gods' sound like the kind of stuff that dubstep labels like DMZ and Tempa were putting out ten years later. Great album that has dated better than a lot of Mo ... See full review

Not saying you didn't make the tunes. But there's no way they were made in 1989, on the equipment you say they were. For a start, one of them uses a vocal from a tune that didn't come out until 1993. There's no way you would have made that massive ... See full review

The Japan only bonus track "Marchromt30a Edit 2b 96" is pretty special - a lovely slice of slo-mo electro (in the true sense of the word). Not sure why it was confined to this release - should've been included on all versions!

All very well saying "I was there" but to change dates you need to provide some sort of concrete evidence for the change before people will vote it through. When the actual artist speaks up and says you're wrong, you just end up looking foolish! I ... See full review

A comment on Youtube suggests the producers of this were George Kelly (One Tribe) and Steve Sullivan. It does look like a UK pressing trying to pass itself off as a US import. This also makes sense as the two producers also released another "tribute" ... See full review

Orbital were obviously fans of "World Champion" as they completely ripped off the breakdown from the middle of the track for the last tune on the In Sides album....

Nice little cheeky white from Phantasy which is essentially a cut-up of various tunes from the 1988 - 1992 era, in much the same style as Razor Boy & Mirror Man's Cutter mix on Rabbit City. Includes samples from Asmo - Music Please, Urban Soul's ... See full review
