Yorkshire via London and Bedford.

One time DJ, some time pirate radio involvement, and full time record collector. Now sold off most of my vinyl collection during the last 5 years, but still unearthing bits and bobs for submission and for selling piecemeal.

If you're still about, a fierce set from Tonic on Kool FM where both tunes are played - https://soundcloud.com/hackneyhistory/kool-fm-london-tonic-july-1993
Agree, absolutely the best two tunes Crystl put out - essential 12.

All about 'From the Other Side' on this one - first heard it on the legendary Eclipse night that was broadcast on Hitman and Her! Does anyone know if Kaleidoscope (aka A.E.K.) were Bedford (Luton?) based or surrounding? I know the label came out of the ... See full review

Just listening to a Fabio on Kiss show from mid 94, which identifies Hungry Eyes as being by Underground Software/out of the Reinforced stable. Can anyone confirm? Listening to Hungry Eyes it actually has a proper Tom & Jerry sound going on.

For me, a very important record. Up there with We Are Ie and such as defining tunes of hardcore/jungle/d'n'b. The great thing is that it also had two lives.

In 1992 when first released, it was all about the Kuff Mix which was representative of the ... See full review

Anyone ever seen this rare version first played by Gilles Peterson on vinyl/acetate? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eXuDEjZhOQ It combines bits of the Cante Hondo, Didgeridoo Instrumental, and Original Demo from the original Acid Jazz release. But, ... See full review

Absolute classic obviously. Always been interested in the link between D-Livin and Satin Storm? Why obviously uses the same loop as Satin Storm - What Do You Do. Don't think they came out too far apart either. And D-Livin - Why also got a limited ... See full review

Agree. Remember picking this up as an obscure white back in the day. A nice little jazz-house re-work IMO and it introduced me to both Wayne Shorter and Norman Connors music too.

This is the copy I've had since late 92/early 93 - only difference between this and the initial release being the barcode addition on the sleeve. Not sure whether it's a 're-issue' as such, rather just a second pressing? It's certainly not one of the ... See full review

So good to see such an important and rare artifact of hardcore/d'n'b history here in the original proto of Darkrider. The early 'Headz' plates put together by Goldie for Reinforced are a thing of handcrafted beauty, not overlooking that first and ... See full review

Interesting - my copy doesn't have a catalogue listed anywhere on either the CD or the inlays. CD has what feels like a printed CD label stuck on top (artwork of Selassie - no info at all). Only identifying details on the centre of the disc are ... See full review
