Mixrace - Unreleased 1993/1994 EP - Preorder Available Now

Post by pete.devnull » Wed Apr 16, 2014 6:15 pm

Hi all,
After six years of running blogtotheoldskool.com (and many more lurking on sites like this), I’ve started a record label called 8205 Recordings. The goal of 8205 will be to unearth choice hardcore/jungle tunes from 1991-1995 that never made it off dubplate or DAT, and press them to vinyl. Each release will be limited to between 100 and 300 copies, aimed at serious oldskool enthusiasts who are still trying to track down those last few elusive tunes from back in the day.

The first release on the label is Mixrace - “Unreleased 1993/1994 tracks”, two wicked tunes written over 20 years ago by Mixrace (aka Paradox and DJ Trax) which never saw release until now. 'Dirty Amen' is the deeper of the two tunes, with a sombre female vocal dropping into classic 93 style amens and deep sub bass. On the flip, 'Express Yourself' ups the dancefloor ante, combining uplifting synths and diva vocals with hard hitting stuttered breakbeats. This 12” release is limited to 125 copies only with no current plans for a digital release.

Preorder is available now, at the following sites:

UK/WORLD: http://www.seventhstoreyprojects.com/mi ... y-59-p.asp
US: http://blogtotheoldskool.com/?page_id=6582

Hardly needs to be said but big up Simon, Will and Dave on this here forum for the influence w/ me starting this :)

Thanks,
Pete - Blog to the Oldskool / 8205

Cool. Always good to have another avenue for releasing those unreleased jems.

BTW, what is the 8205 in reference to? Just wondering why you chose the number. 8-[ 8)

That's great news Pete! Am surprised you haven't started a label before, given your love and dedication to old skool! :D

There are a few bits I never did anything with that you might be keen on - will drop you a PM after the bank holiday weekend.

Glad some people are interested, 8205 is the r33t spelling of "B2OS" which short for Blog to the Oldskool (as opposed to B2VOS which is this site).

Hope to have preorders up on Thursday, at least for the UK! Should be ready soon after, record is already at the plant.

Will happily get an order in for this. Loved Mixrace's stuff from back in the day and since it's a new vinyl release I'm gonna be on it! :D
