I am a collector of jungle, hardcore & breakbeat from the 92/93 era. These days when I DJ out, I mainly play afro, house & minimal tech. If you find anything in my wants you have for sale, feel free to email me.

Don't bother with this studio one reissue, the pressing quality is horrendous. Surprised they even thought it was ok to release in such a poor state.

I wouldn't say I am insecure, just jaded. I guess if I want to play this type of sound the og's to me are only occasionally outdone but maybe you got me on elitist ;-)

I dunno, perhaps I need to wait until it goes for $80 before I start feeling it and then convince myself that it has got something over my cheaper ones from the original period.

lol I can't remember the last time I used the word groundbreaking in house and techno...it may have been somewhere in the late 90's....new machines, new ideas.

Generic run of the mill bubbly tech with a decent sample used in classic jungle hardcore records = modern 'underground' dance music.

I heard Phobos 23 years ago from a recording of a Sydney late night underground radio show called Looney Toons.
Was introduced by Biz as 'hard analog tech'. I never ever heard it out or played since.

I agree with most of what you say although to be honest it is all pretty generic these days; 'good' generic and bad generic seem to be the two options. There frankly has not been anything remotely innovative in house and techno for a very long time. New ... See full review

Not sure if the owner is a fan of the funk/soul label Pearl Harbor, however this label uses a direct rip off there logo, interesting one of the tracks is labeled Pearl Harbor, coincidence ?

I'm not sure he is Australian as the blue dot on the logo side is meant to be the area in England where the record was produced, hence the blue dot moving round from place to place on each release.

Dreams Of Heaven is also an unreleased version, splitting the elements of this prototype into two versions for the official release on Dee Jay Recordings.

yes its great but adding comments like 'whatever it costs' isn't going to help with the discogs sharks....
this year it has been selling on here for reasonably fair prices, I hope it stays that way :-)

I don't doubt it makes sense in the context of the installation, out of it no sense at all...taking 'art' a bit far on this one.

anyone who wants to have a frisby competition with this record let me know....I'm assuming this was just made as a joke. someone selling it for over $130...well why not see how far the joke can go.

The southside warehouse mix is a seriously over looked tune, if flutes & raw techno is your thing then grab this !

I really don't understand the fuss over this tune, its good but for the prices it goes for it seems laughable. Anyone around this music long enough must own atleast a handful as good and better and certainly no where near the range this pitches at. Do ... See full review

Deliberately didn't buy due to this. Amongst all the generic rehash that is released you get a decent one with a strong name drop. Does this justify the price ? Not at all.

Does anyone know where the cinematic strings on 'Swamp' are sampled from ? It sounds like they have been lifted from an old romantic film, I would love to know which one.

'Drugged Culture' has all the elements of a true underground hardcore/jungletekno tune - I don't think it was very known but fits in very nicely with those dirty basslines & scatty breaks as pushed by Dj Ratty late 92/93 era - defiantly one for the ... See full review

The previously unreleased 'Rubadub Style' is not identical to the original dub plate as played by LTJ Bukem in 1993. One of the elements is missing, although it is a subtle.
