Language – Renegade (the Energy Mix)

I haven’t posted much bleeps-n-bass stuff on this blog, here’s a personal favorite that I think applies… a great early track from 1990 with just about all the elements common in later tracks (deep subby bass, bleepy synths, chopped ragga vocals, pianos, rolling breakbeats), just at a slower tempo. The label which put this out…

Nature Boyeeeee – Nuts N Noise (Arthur Baker And The Backbeat Disciples – “Silly Games (Bonesbreak Dub Mix)

Here’s an interesting US record I found over the weekend….despite having stickered artwork on the sleeve, there wasn’t any artist info attached. One side sounded like early house/breaks/proto-hardcore (especially when pitched up as here) with the classic Liz Torres “No more Mindgames” sample. The other side is the “Used to Salsa” mash-up, a version of…

R.I.P. Eon

“Legendary ‘rave’ producer Eon, a.k.a. Ian Loveday, passed away Wednesday, June 17, from complications with pneumonia” Another piece with lots of background information, by someone who knew him well. Sorry for the delay in posting this, needed to make time to rip some of my favorite Eon singles… massive respect to this guy. Eon –…

Plastic Clothes Mechanics (Pre-Hyper-On Experience/EZ Rollers)

Here’s an interesting tune of historical note… I believe it was the first released single by Alex and Jay of EZ Rollers (of which Alex was 1/2 of Hyper-On Experience). It dates back to 1990… that’s not just some made-up date on discogs, the record actually says “copyright 1990” on it. You can hear it…

Blapps Posse – Bust It (Time To Get Busy)

A while back I posted a link to Turntable Symphony – Instructions of Life. Here’s another track by the same artist (Jason from Freestylers), off an EP from 1990. It’s a great tune, and was heavily sampled in Sonic Experience – Protien among other tracks. Blapps Posse – Bust It (Time to Get Busy)

Count it off

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…

Bay B Kane interview, part 1

Anyone who thinks they know oldschool but doesn’t own at least a few Bay B Kane releases should be ashamed of themselves! From 1990 to 1996, Mel Tanur aka Bay B Kane was one of the most prolific and influential hardcore/jungle producers around. Tracks like “Hello Darkness”, “Bagpipes in Effect” and “Quarter To Doom” are…
