'Proud Mary (Bonus Beats)' is a great proto Chicago House sounding track; think early Chip E and early beat tracks. Received plays from the Hot Mix 5 gang.

'Happy Dance' was always better known, more popular and played out a lot more, but 'Zombie' is a very cool, pure bleep tune. It certainly deserves to be more widely known.

Jamie Myerson must be one of the most under appreciated Jungle / Drum n Bass artists of all time. He's the Larry Heard of Jungle!!

'Pearls', for all those wondering, samples a classic Sade 1992 album track also entitled 'Pearls'

" She don't know what she's made of".

Yep... I got the pressings mixed up. Thanks for bringing it to my attention siman91.
And yes, Duane Thamn Jr didn't / doesn't get the respect he deserves for his involvement in the early formative years. At least us true heads know.

I'm pretty sure that this was released in early 1995 (can anyone confirm for sure?).
posted a comment on SDR & Subsonic - Technology / Martini. about 1 month ago
The correct year for this release is 1994. I remember picking this up along with Alex Reece & Wax Doctor ‎- 'Frequency' / 'You Got Me' on Radioactive Kids Records.

'Electro Techno' is the one for me, a decent deeper bleeper (if overly long), while 'The Electric Chair' is an LFO - 'LFO' sounding clone.
posted a comment on Ital Rockers - One Day. 10 months ago
'Dreams' is a great bass & bleep tune that would've been right at home sitting alongside both 'Ital’s Anthem' and 'Science' on the classic first 12". Perhaps this was also made in 1990? Whatever, this one deserves to be more well known.

I don't think it is a sample? If it is it's definitely not a Burrell Brothers sample. If anything it reminds me a little of Ron Trent's 'Altered States', but it doesn't sample it.

The producer of this 12" is listed under the mysterious " Cucumber " moniker. I'm 99% sure Cucumber = Rick Lenoir (of LNR / House Jam Records fame). Can anybody please confirm?

He most certainly did m8. What a fantastic tune!

One of the better 1987 Italo-Disco tracks (sounds much earlier).

Big Tip!

He may not be as well-known, prolific or as revered as Larry but he's also a talented writer and producer. Check out his great 'Hums' EP on Dance Mania for starters.

Obviously a typo? Or the Italians thought it was spelt and / or pronounced that way? Nine times out of Ten they usually got it wrong!

Nothing to add to what Freddy has already said apart from saying that Jim "Hype" Heinz never got / gets the respect he deserves when it comes to multi edit works. Perhaps it's because he never came close to doing as many as the likes of regular and well ... See full review

What? Still no comments for this all-time classic New York Freestyle jam? Dayum!

Charlie Dee and Omar Santana's 'Diamond Dub' version is surely up there as one of the best crazy dope multi edits of all time!! It still sounds amazing even now.

'Trax 90' is an amazing Acid burner and is without a doubt in my all-time top 10 Euro Acid trax list. Goes so well with all the Chicago Acid trax :)

'Planet Voice' is a cool New Beat influenced track and was played a lot in the Belgium New Beat scene.

So sad to hear of her passing. Diane is one of my all-time favourite UK female vocalists. Be sure to check all her 80's 52nd Street vocals.

R.I.P. Diane.
