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..

[quote=musicalmania68]I will give you this, muddy is probably not the right word and I can accept it is from a DAT, but there is no need to be so defensive. Listen to the track on the flipside, it sounds more dynamic and crisp - the same with every... See full review

posted a review of Equinox (3) - The Theme EP. about 1 year ago
Such a good record! 4 tracks and they're all wicked. "The Theme" pt 2 is one of Equinox's craziest and hence one of my favorites by him. "The Quest" is really involved and has lots of different breakdowns and nice little parts throughout. "Ultimate... See full review

posted a review of Various - Legend Of The Four Paws EP. about 1 year ago
Very nice all overall EP, but the winner for me is Freegroove - "Wisdom Tooth". Quality jungle techno with nice sinister vibes while still keeping it a bit restrained / not too overtly explicitly dark and evil sounding (not that there's anything wrong... See full review

Even with a great sounding repress widely available, it's a bit surprising to me that the original of this isn't in more demand. If I had to sell up 95% of my collection, this would be in the last 5% to go for sure. Absolutely fundamental bleepy... See full review

95 or later happy hardcore. Still has amens and breaks but also a nonstop stomping kick, so I'd wager 95-97 or thereabouts. A side samples the piano from "I feel the heat" on Urban Hype - A Trip To Trumpton.

Wasn't sure what to expect here given the style designations: Jungle...Drum N Bass.... Poetry??? Sure enough, one side samples the acapella off of Mutaburka* - The People's Court 11 and puts jungle beats and melodies behind it. Not a killer jungle tune for sets, but an... See full review

posted a review of Dark Vektor - Esqueix. about 1 year ago
Excellent release, but does anyone else's copy of the vinyl feel and sound more like a lathe cut? It's super thin, the grooves are shallow, it's a quiet pressing, and even the center label looks somewhat shoddily attached (corners are a bit torn up). ... See full review

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
