Remarc b2b Hype

Post by MR RINSE » Fri Oct 10, 2014 8:38 pm

Imo this would have been a killer combination back in the day, proper turntablism, hardcore style.

Surely such a set must exist considering they seem to be best mates on twitter and obviously have been for a long time.

Although... Hype seemed to hate 92, or at least there is a distinct lake of Hype 1992 sets out there.

Does anyone know of a set?

Nope, but I'd love to hear one if you get one!

Hype, for me, is the don. He had the scene sewn up in the 90's. F*cking awesome DJ.

He, to me, is a REAL DJ. Skills in abundance, great selector, presence, stupidly consistent and made it in an era where you HAD to be good otherwise you were nowhere.

He mixed a CD called "Jungle Massive" in 2000/1. Best Jungle set I've ever heard, and I've heard hundreds. So on point on every level.

Agreed Restless but Remarc was having it up hardcore on weekend rush, faster scratch style and quicker on the draw.

Screw jungle massive CD's btw check out almost any Fantasy Fm sets from 90/91 and check what Hype could really do.

This was one of my most played tapes, Its not the full set unfortunately its one of those stop starters but it has a bit of Remarc at the start. Check the Hi Tec Muuusic scratch at the beginning ..

I've heard a ton of them - all awesome. It's just that around the time Hype made the cd that I mentioned was when he was bang in the middle of his prime. Everything was on-point. ;-)

My god, I used to have this set years ago and lost it, haven't hear it for a good 10 years. Thank you, completely forgot about it.

Extreme, that set is wicked, not heard it in a while! A prime example.

Restless - I know what you mean just though he got a bit lazy after mid 90's. We used to cain the world dance cd at school which was about 96. Can't really say I've heard much that's inspired me from him since. Do you have a link to the one your talking about?

Funny you should mention WD, as I bought a Hype/Ellis Dee cd of WD's the other day! Haha.

Check on Mixcloud for DJ Hype, Jungle Massive. ;-)

I'm not the biggest fan of Ellis Dee, in all honesty. But I'm digging that set big time! It's on in the car.

Hype, to me, seemed like he didn't put any effort into compilations back then. Different story completely when he was playing out, though!

Quality DJ for sure -> but i totally disagree with the 'had to be good in that era' comment.

I thought so many of the big name dj's were purely that. In comparison to the undergound dj's of the time, i found the majority of the big names awful.

Hi,

I've heard some Remarc sets that better Hype, but most ppl rate Hype more, due to him being a bigger name, and playing the bigger events.

i used to work at fantasy fm , and seeing hype get a demo /dub given to him before he went on stage to do his set and just quickly skim a listen through it, then mix it straight in , scratch it and mix out always stuck with me, where other dj's had there sets completely set out and in order, hype would just free style the whole thing and still sound tight

also remarc done a remix of one of my tracks which we didnt know he had done! called him up and he wasnt very concerned, the label sold the rights to another label and got him to remix it(in my opinion ,murder it)
