D&B SPECIALIST - COLLECTED ALL MAJOR CLASSICS SINCE THE START OF RAVE UPTO PRESENT DAY.
THE MAIN OF MY PERSONAL COLLECTION IS BUKEM & FABIO BASED BUT MY COLLECTION COVERS ALL ASPECTS OF D&B/JUNGLE. LOTS OF RARITIES!!!

CURRENTLY FROM MARCH 2013 I AM HOLDING REGULAR SHOWS ON BRICK LANE RADIO - SHOWCASING MY MIXES OF D&B / JUNGLE TUNES SPANNING RIGHT BACK TO THE EARLY 90s - THE GOLDEN YRS, RIGHT UPTO CURRENT!

WAS A DJ FOR 20 YEARS, NOW 40 SO RETIRED TO THE BEDROOM AS NOW HAVE A WIFE & 4 YR OLD GIRL SO DONT GET THE TIME TO SPEND ON THE 1s & 2s AS MUCH AS I'D LIKE!

I TAKE CARE OF ALL MY RECORDS AND I'M VERY PARTICULAR ABOUT CONDITION, SO WOULD NOT SELL ANYTHING THAT I WOULDN'T EXPECT TO BUY MYSELF. I PRIDE MYSELF ON LISTING THEIR CONDITION FAIRLY - ALTHOUGH I DO HAVE TO SAY THAT DISCOGS "INTERPRETATION OF MINT" IS A BIT STRONG!!

MY VERSION OF MINT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT MAY HAVE HAD 1 OR 2 PLAYS BUT STILL LOOKS LIKE YOU'D JUST BOUGHT IT FROM NEW - OR POSSIBLY UNPLAYED AT ALL.

- THAT SAID, MOST SHOPS THAT SELL D&B COULD MEAN THAT POTENTIALLY IT MAY HAVE BEEN PLAYED SEVERAL TIMES TO A PUNTER BEFORE YOU EVEN CLAPPED EYES ON IT!

BUT PLEASE DON'T WORRY - MY GRADINGS ARE AS PER DISCOGS CONDITIONS

One of EZ Rollers finest pieces. Always loved this plate simply because both sides should be A sides in their own right.

Well the pulse mix is actually quite a beautiful piece of music. For less than £1 its definitely worth picking up. Maybe theres a little too much guitar sampling going on, which is why it's not got a bigger price tag or review history. But for those... See full review

Lovely to get hold of some of these buried treasures from the vaults.......Shame this release has spoiled the dubs from the dungeons series not being on Gold Vinyl like the rest of them......why Dom, why?

Excellent tunes on this classic repress.

Mostly purchased for Alex Reece - The Groove which was absolutely smashed by Bukem and therefore no need to harp on about how great the track is. I just can't unhear Conrad everytime I play it!

Very lush indeed. Anyone know exactly when this was originally made? Someone mentioned vintage track, but I cant place hearing this before. The piano chord hits sound like the same as used in Hypersleep, which is one my all time favourites from Voyager.

Sorry but no wonder it's called Boot with You.

considering this is regularly available for around a £1 - its definitely worth bagging it for nostalgia purposes of those hazy speed nights.
Bukem smashed this and others by forces of nature - quite an epic journey into intelligence.
