EQP - prophecy - piano version???

Post by retrospect » Tue Aug 05, 2008 3:40 pm

I consider some of you to be some kind of jungle techno A-Team - If you have a problem, if no one else can help and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... the A Team:

Can anyone help with tracking down a tune from 1992 that i first heard when swan e dropped it at awol bitd.

It's a different version of EQP's Prophecy that got released on Rough Tone - http://www.discogs.com/release/166716
The version i'm looking for breaks down into one of the funkiest hardcore basslines of 92 and later in the track there's a cool piano breakdown thats not too cheesy, it keeps the quality production of the Rough Tone release and adds to it.

heard another version of 'prophecy' on a cool hand flex mix posted on this site, for which the link is still live - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Z7L31KG2
the version flex played came from this - http://www.discogs.com/release/366795
but this mix takes away the cool proto-jungle style and replaces it with some awful cheese - is it the other mix on this ep?

any clues?

Rough Tone version's a delicious stripped down dub of the 3thieves & a liar track, just a shame they didnt keep that cool bline

The "Prophecy" sample comes from the 1977 reggae classic....

Breakage done a nice, 'new', version of this. I've been told that the released version was a bit different to the mix played on dub though. Will have to try and confirm that :)
