IMPORTANT: I'm not looking to sell or trade on here. My collection and wantlist are set to private. If you see a "rating" from me on a record, that doesn't mean I own it - I rate lots of records I don't own on here, probably more than ones I do own, mainly to keep track of what I've heard before at some point. Hitting me up for rips, or clips, or asking me to sell obscenely rare records to you direct just because I rated them is pointless.

I run 8205 Recordings, http://www.blogtotheoldskool.com and used to produce crazy unfriendly music as Dev/Null (still do now and again)

fan of lots of music styles but I've mostly been collecting lesser known 1991-1995 hardcore/jungle on vinyl for the past 18 years. Feel free to contact me if you've got a bunch of that kind of stuff 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, I don't just file it away never to be heard again.

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 is ... 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 absolutely ... See full review

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

I'm wondering if there was a recent-ish bootleg of this, as I've seen a suspicious number of copies going up for sale past year or two despite there supposedly only being 50 pressed. Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but has anyone else seen copies for sale ... See full review

Where to begin? let's start with the "vinyl only releases" question:
* The last two 8205 releases ARE FOR SALE DIGITALLY, on bandcamp. They're even listed under the releases here.
* 8205-0xff was a digital release containing tracks every bit as good as ... See full review

sounds roughly 88/89, similar to "Get Acidic". Might be a whitelabel version of a big released EP, I need to go through all those early ones and check still.
