Our next two vinyl pre-orders are now open, which take us up to our 20th release! They should both arrive in stock some time in late November or early December.
Kniteforce Remastered 5: Rarities features four tracks from the KF archives that have either never been released at all or are hard to find. Full details on this release can be found here:
Jedi Recordings #15 takes you back to 1993 with two authentic breakbeat hardcore style tracks by DJ Jedi & RadioSam. Listen to the preview clips and pre-order here:
I have heard the CD pack from the last one and the music was dreadful, but I don't really expect anything from events like this any more. Prefer the smaller events with interesting DJs and underground music. I won't name names but one of the sets on the CD pack is literally the worst old skool set I have ever heard, the DJ had clearly put no thought in to it and is obviously comfortable playing D&B these days where every track is within 2-3 bpm so you don't need to know the tunes. One example a 150bpm hardcore track with a with 125bpm acid house track. Absolute gash.
I'm sure I saw a thread on this before but can't find it. So who's going this Sunday? Usually considered one of the best events of the year with proper music unlike the big raves. Ratty playing his last ever London set, and Mark N (former DMC winner) doing a hardcore set.
I've noticed these out and about around town. I assume it's more drum and bass than old skool, but nice to see Cyndicut are still going and it's at the same place they used to hold the ROAR events back in the day.
How come? Is that how dead it is then up there?
Pretty sure Warning had a final event not so long ago...could be wrong though
How good have they been? Has anyone on here been to them? Atmosphere/numbers, what are they like?
Really wanna make it to the one in December.
Of course it's a wicked EP, surprised you just noticed LOL
Don't "Warning" still put events on?
A mate has started putting his sound system in the back room of a local pub in our town the last few months..n for a small place its been rammed..he likes his trance but they put on a hardcore night (Scott Brown headlined)..his nxt night tis more D&B..Ed Solo headlining..apart from that its pretty quiet in Cambs..nice too know there,s enough people out there having it too still have small decent nights
Was into psychobilly/punk until goin too my 1st Rave (Wisbech 92)..between then and 94 tbh it was all about getting pilled up..the best of times..couldnt tell you who was playing/played or where we,d been half the time (i very rarely drove..didnt have a licence), then 94/95 i got really into the gabba/hardtekno side of things as the split happened..bought a set of beat up decks..n got into "the scene" proper..94/98..the Diehard..Pleasuredome..Helter skelter Teknodrome..death row techno..Hyperbolic Vortex..Shot 2 fuck partys and the very birth of the Lock up rig days were the very best of times for me....musta been im still spinning the same style now

Tall Paul was absolutely immense circa '97.
His set at a Fantazia event (G-Mex) is one of THE cleanest and tightest mixes I've heard. World class stuff. Paul was on dangerous form that night.
Paul was easily the best DJ in the world in '97, easily. Although Ratty and Hype were f*cking up there as well. Like, really close to him.
That's what I love about some DJ's from back then. They used mixers that literally had nothing to them, and the way they worked the EQ's/channels/faders and got a PERFECT sound out of them is something that still blows me away to this day. Those mixers, although great back then, really weren't.
Whitehead is a don. Always rated him. He could program a set like no other.
I still look for sets from TP & AW, as they never failed to rock it.
by 97 i was into house and went to house nights in the midlands were i went to uni. i had completely lost touch of the rave scene (i grew up on suffolk / essex border, so we had a big jungle scene).
One night i went to a drum and bass night in 97 or 98 with alex reece headlining. got to the door and there was posters saying Alex Reece has been replaced by Ratty (who was one of my favourite djs from 92/93 when i first got into rave) - i was so excited and just stood next to the decks all night. think that was the last time i went to a drum and bass night.
also growing up there was a club about 5 minutes walk from my parents house, used to go every friday and saturday (if not going raving) and occasionally they had bigger name djs - so i got to see Slipmatt, Sy, Randall, Black market, Ray keith etc.. 5 minutes walk from my house close up in my small local club.
best years for raving was 92/93 but honestly 97 was prob my favourite year i was really into the house scene. As cheesey as it sounds - hearig Rampling or Judge Jules on radio one then going to see them straight afterwards hearing the same tunes as on the radio. Jon of the Pleased, Allister Whitehead, Tall Paul - I used to live for the weekend.
these are not my favourite sets, but i think they are game changers as they changed the direction of the scene
Dougal - dreamscape 8, the first anthem bashing set of happy tunes regardless of how old they were
oakie - Goa mix, cause its different
top buzz, fantazia new years eve - pure class, the whole set just flows with quality mcing too
sy - obsession the dream, just perfect time for sy in 93, mixing dark and happier tunes, quality set
slipmatt, fatazia new years eve 92/93 - shit event, but a good set which gives me goose bumps listening to it.
fabio book of love, first set of the night and set the tempo for the entire night
