2 Tha Point (2) Featuring Ascend (4) - Feel The Need (Mixes)
posted a review of 2 Tha Point (2) Featuring Ascend (4) - Feel The Need (Mixes). about 1 month ago
I would say the date above 1997 is the release date as to me it does have that style of downtempo / rnb production, esp the original mix.

It has recently been released on his bandcamp page, but for me i agree with what Crystl said in the quote, that the minimalist sound of DnB isn't a patch on the breakbeat manipulation he & Pete Parsons were creating within Jungle. But im sure the DnB... See full review

A big fan of Second Life it deserves to have been made a single & not just an album track.
Martian Man - Martianman 002

I prefer the deeper breakbeat chops of Got A Dream over the more repetive ambient 2step Bukem groove of Amber Fields. It reminds me of early Inperspective Records like Polska & Senses.
Cash Money And Marvelous* - Find An Ugly Woman / The Mighty Hard Rocker
posted a review of Cash Money And Marvelous* - Find An Ugly Woman / The Mighty Hard Rocker. 9 months ago
This is one of those singles where the B side outshines the A side. The Mighty Hard Rocker is a classic from the golden era with Cash Money on the decks scratching it up.

"African Roots" aka Bammie & The Natty Locks "Jah Is Shaking In Dub"
"Crime Wave" aka Eustin Gregory "You So Real"
"Blood Of Africa" aka Sydney Smith "Jah Jah De Pan Dem"

posted a review of Alimantado* - Best Dress Chicken / She Wreng-Ep. 9 months ago
The single mix of She Wreng Ep is a different mix to the album version, which unlike this, the backing track drops out for the vocal with echo & reverb effects mixed in. Whereas the 7" mix is a straight rhythm mix. So for this reason i prefer the... See full review

A pity all the reissues appear to use noisy old stampers & originals are hard to find in near mint condition. If only Soul Jazz started digging further into the Studio One archives for these lesser known gems, than keep repressing their compilations &... See full review

posted a review of Johnny Clarke - King In The Arena. 9 months ago

This does not have the King Tubby dub as with some other reissues on the Striker Lee label it sounds like the dub is a new mix.

This Striker Lee reissue does not feature the original King Tubby dub but a different more modern mixdown probably taken from one of Jamaican Recordings dub compilations.

Another dubious early release from Jamaican Recordings. These are new dub mixes judging by the filters used & the way its been mixed down, a very clean sound too. Don't be fooled that these dubs are authentic previously unreleased mixes from the... See full review

Dublin 1 is still his best tune to date. I missed it as it was a low key self release with only 100 copies pressed. Needs a repress now his name is more widely known within DnB / Jungle circles.

(June, 2023) I have just picked a copy up from Dubvender as new stock has come back in. They must have done another run as my copy is without the crinkly edge on Side A, one minor mark across the end of Side B track 2 which doesn't affect play.
