DJ Chance replied to the topic 'Your all-time favourite mc?' in the forum. 5 hours 11 minutes ago

Although it was never a factor when I was choosing what events to attend, I did use to like the following MC's on a flyer:-

Conrad
GQ
Chalkie White
Ribbz
Mad P
I also liked Bassman around 92/93 time, less so later on.

I tended to find that MC's used to pass me by at events and I never really took a huge amount of notice.

Here's one top ten list of movies sampled in classic oldskool tunes.

Any others worth a mention?

I'd say Blade Runner at least, sampled in this one (and probavbly in few others): m.youtube.com/watch?v=F-wSngqX9Vc

Many great mc's mentioned there.

Could have added Robbie Dee to my faves aswell. I suppose he mc'd a lot for DJ Ratty (probably many others too) at some point...

Who actually chose the mc's bitd?Promotors only or did some djs have some trusted mc's who travelled and worked with them?

My new EP is available now on Kniteforce Digital, on CD or digital download.
5 tracks done in a mid 90s style, lots of breakbeats and pianos and stabby goodness.
Look here!

Also available is Audio X's new EP, you can buy both as a bundle or individually if you prefer. It's not old skool but is still very, very good.
Linky, linky!

Didn't know he tried his hand at (co-)production side of things as well.

Also, the Eternity studio mixes he did a few, just heard one the other day ('94ish) - and it was brilliant. @ Mixcloud

Agree that its nothing to do with Remarc. The link to Remarc is about the other side. I would agree with ET in that someone has made this themselves and stuck it up.

Doesnt look like it is Remarc, most likely someone has just a personal plate and put on discogs. Tonnes of cruddy records listed like that.

Coolbreeze created a new topic ' where’s the good music gone!?' in the forum. 5 days ago

You’ve probably heard it all before but everyone or most people my age say music is not as good as used to be and every rave video says “These were the good old days and what the f^^K we got nowadays days? Facebook and Xfactor! F**k that!” People on forums say there is good music out there but you gotta find it? Bollocks I don’t remember hunting down rave music, it came to me in 1991 introduced by my brother and heard the prodigy on radio 1. Also when I say give me some suggestions of good music or a link I never seem to like it. So am I looking in wrong places or is it scientific fact it was better back in the day? So you got any suggestions that might be any better in today’s music? What you reckon!?

Thought I should share this from Basement Records ..... "Hi everyone a couple of months ago I got a call from an old friend Gareth Oxby which was such a nice surprise after so many years. Gareth and I first met when he released his first record the Old Trainers EP now a stone cold Old Skool classic, we then worked together until I left Vinyl Distribution in 1997.
I was privileged to work with this brilliant producer who as well as killing it with his Old Skool Releases, Drum N Bass releases and his Techno smashers Alien Funk Movement which led him to a deal with Norman Cooks label Skint and an amazing catalogue of Tech House releases, a top producer and such a nice humble guy your ever likely to meet, so when he asked me if I would be up for reissuing his catalogue I was obviously up for it, so I am really proud to be able to offer the first of 3 projects coming your way in 2018.
The first project has been remastered from the original dats with Beau at TenEightSeven Mastering and Test Press's should arrive just before or just after Christmas.
It will be a 3 x 12" pack featuring the The OLD TRAINERS EP, the DATA DUMP EP plus a 12" with two unreleased remixes (1 track from each EP)
the track listing for the Eze G project is
The Eze G Projects Volume 1
3 x 12" White Label Test Press
CAT NUMBER MRILP001
PLATE 1
MRILP001 A1 Do Me
MRILP001 A2 Start It Again
MRILP001 B1 Music Box
MRILP001 B2 Techno Fever
PLATE 2
MRILP001 C1 Paradise
MRILP001 C2 Yeah
MRILP001 D1 Me Want Sound
MRILP001 D2 Funky People
PLATE 3
MRILP001 E Start It Again Remix
MRILP001 F Funky People Remix
I will be posting clips for you to listen to late next week, but can assure you the unheard remixes are superb.
As always I am only cutting a handful of Test Press Sets, so if you want one first come first serve, just message me for details.
I will be posting the pre order information as once as the Test Press Sets have been sent out which will be just before or just after Christmas.
Full release is scheduled for February and will be a 3 x 12" pack + CD, & Digital Release, for those who already own both of these classic EPs you will also be able to just pre order the remix 12".
Volume 2 of the EZE G Projects will feature the 8 tunes Eze G produced for my Street Beats Label, Scheduled for March 2018.
Well I hope this has got you all as excited as me
all the best and thanks as always for the support
Phil(Basement Records)
