Profile

I'm Pete. I run 8205 Recordings, http://www.blogtotheoldskool.com and used to produce crazy unfriendly electronic music as Dev/Null (still do now and again - more basic fun jungley stuff past 6-8 years since that's what I DJ).

I'm a fan of lots of music styles, but I've mostly been collecting lesser known 1991-1995 hardcore/jungle on vinyl for the past 20+ years. Feel free to contact me if you've got some of that you're interested in selling, especially rarities / white labels/ unreleased acetates / stuff not listed on discogs / etc. I do a radio show with Tim Reaper every other Sunday on jungletrain.net (archived sets up at http://soundcloud.com/devnull-dj) so I still play this music a lot, it's not just a pure collector thing. Always keen to find rare and unheard stuff for the show!

Important:If you see a "rating" from me, that doesn't mean I actually own the record- I rate lots of records I don't own, to keep track of what I've heard before, so I know what I want the most. So please don't DM me asking me to sell you a rare record just because you saw me rate it..

It's still up for free download on the 8205 bandcamp. It was only ever digital, no vinyl.

Not sure if there's another track not listed there which is mixed in and out quickly, but the track at 65:00 in the Dave Clarke Mix definitely sounds like an alternate mix or remix of Rich Lee - Rock So Hard

Such a big record, I played "Southside Bang" out a ton when I first got it and have heard it as a semi secret weapon in quite a few DJs sets. Definition of a killer chicago track - a select few elements put together flawlessly. Any party this track... See full review

Funny how the black was the first to sell out and still never been sold here.Really tells you a lot how people really fell about color vs black.

That's just because the black vinyl was much more limited than the coloured... See full review

posted a review of Rich Lee - Rock So Hard. about 1 year ago
Big personal favorite here. "Rock So Hard" is an absolute classic, pure rave perfection stripped down to its purest essence. "Guerilla Warfare" is a bit moodier, great for fans of early Vice/Black Nation Records. Both tracks are similarly crusty, so... See full review

Cool EP in the typical 786 Approved/Deja Vu Recs style: loose, ruff and mental sounding. Not gonna win any production awards, even by 93 standards, but that's to be expected with 786/Deja output - doesn't matter because the vibes are BIG! The a side... See full review

Absolutely killer EP. "Whiffle" was always my favorite track by Jerome, Dance Mania meets Looney Tunes (the cartoon not the nu groove project). . Tha ttrack gets a reissue here alongside three of his strongest tracks to date, with "RZ Thing" being a... See full review

if ever an EP deserved a straight ahead reissue, exactly as it was originally pressed with no fancy remastering or bonus tracks or remixes, it's this EP. Simply put, these are two of THE BEST hc/jungle tracks of all time. "Silent Voices" is an... See full review

posted a review of 324 - Customized Circle. over 3 years ago
One of the absolute best grind releases of all time, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. The drumming is what cinches it for me: insanely fast, hard hitting, tight but organic. That super ringy snare manages to cut through the buzzsaw guitars while still... See full review
