Here’s a pretty strange cool track by the guys who brought you “Guillotine”. This tune was featured in several big mixes including DJ Hype’s “Ruff Stuff Part 3” (a must-have if you haven’t heard it), Bukems Yamen studio mix #9, and a Gachet mix from 93. The breakproduction on this tune is a little bit thin, but the music is really interesting and wicked, really tweaky / out there at points with a number of major changeups. I need to dig through my collection some more and find more twisted tunes like this to post, if anyone has any suggestions about real strange sounding obscurities with lots of changeups, feel free to leave a comment and if I have them I’ll post them.
Here’s a wicked release by Mad Dog, known best for their tune “My God”. Both producers behind “Mad Dog” have quite a few good releases to their names – Dave Wallace did tunes as The Rave Doctor, Fugitive (“Mind Games”), Regel Alliance (“Sometimes”), under his own name on Moving Shadow, plus continues to do releases in Aquasky and Black Noise. Shaun O’Hara was also a member of Aurora, who I’ve posted one great track by and who was responsible for several other absolutely killer EPs:”Spectral Bass” which is relatively easy to find and best known for “Voice of Buddha”, and the extremely hard to find First release on Homegrown. This track is a great choppy jungle jam with a well used atmospheric bit I’ve heard in a few other tunes (maybe one by mole the dipper), pitch shifted breaks, quality breaks, etc.
