Another theme post, i.e. a thinly veiled excuse to post a random smattering of tracks. This time, it’s tracks with some sort of counting in them.
To start off, here’s one of my absolute favorite hiphop tracks ever – it’s fast and mixes perfectly well with earlier hardcore tunes. This version of “20 seconds to comply” comes from a US press 12″ with “Bring Forth the Guillotine” on the B side, it’s the closest mix I’ve found to the album version which is my favorite. Only thing wrong with it is that it’s censored, oh well… since I can’t find my copy on discogs, I’m linking to the regular UK pressing.
Silver Bullet – 20 Seconds to Comply
Next is another UK hiphop track by Shut up & Dance. Notice the George Kranz – “Din Daa Daa” sample in the background, as used in numerous oldschool tunes and featured on the soundtrack of Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo
Shut Up And Dance – 188.8.131.52.
This next track is by Darren Pierce, who did seemingly half the singles on Elicit Records under a variety of aliases. His tracks might warrant their own post at some point, but for now here’s a decent track by him from 92
A.W.O.L. – 5 4 3 2 1 (Come On)
This Sonz of a Loop Da Loop track leads off the awesome and essential Flowers In My Garden LP, which apparently goes for very little right now… I remember thinking I was fortunate to get it years ago for $20 or so. Now you can nab it for cheap on vinyl, or buy crystal clear mp3s of it on dnb arena, ripped direct from the DATs… so head over there and grab those.
Sonz of a Loop Da Loop – Calm Downizm
A week or two ago I posted 2 tracks off the asterix EP. It turns out that another track on this EP has a similar “countdown” on it.
Unknown (Asterix EP) – Ashes
This next track is off a decent 93 EP, don’t know much about the artist but the A side of this is even better than the following track:
Higher octave – FLCV2 (31 Seconds)
Dipping further into the obscurities, this Bab ‘E lon Crew EP is decent but some of the other tracks are let down a bit by the production – the drums are really buried in the mix. This is my favorite from the EP… not exactly a dancefloor smasher, but great for the middle of a set.
Bab ‘e lon Crew – 5 4 3 2 1
This next track I remember being in one or two of my favorite Ratty sets, awesome Intense remix of an already good Subject 13 tune
Subject 13 – Armageddon Countdown (Blatant Remix)
To end things off, here’s one of the most famous jungle tracks ever…hope I don’t have to say anything about it?
Origin Unknown – Valley of The Shadows (31 Seconds)
