Re: Bargain 92 tunes for under a tenner

Aren't all 1992 tunes under £10 these days? ;)

Thought it was the 1993 and 1994 ones that were getting the big bucks

Re: Insomnia - Nostalgic/Down To Earth Repress

Wow. How did you get in contact with the original producers? Did they have everything on DAT? Did they release anything under other names? Any unreleased bits from bitd? Lots of questions lol

Re: Bryan G Unknown From Dreamscape 5 (1992)

This is a long outstanding unknown Al. Its sounds really familiar but maybe its the stab sound that sounds like another tune.

Re: Do you still go record shopping?

Fully exhausted? I've been pulling £100 albums at record shops and charity shops multiple times this year. Had some killer dance bits as well which i suppose is rarer. Bootfairs have been even better with a couple of £150-£250 bits in the last few months.

Re: Smith Inc - music & life - which version ?

That VIP is basically a bastard version of the original (no amens) and the remix (amens) with a slightly different bassline sound in parts. I can't recall ever hearing it on any tapes.

Re: Do you still go record shopping?

Re: What do people look for in oldskool mixes these days?

Commercially peaked yes but peaked in terms of innovation, tune quality no. Personally it was good that the scene reached saturation point as it allowed for the producers to consolidate and come back with underground tunes - see darkcore, early jungle (ie early Kemet, mid period Ibiza Records et al)...

Re: What do people look for in oldskool mixes these days?

1992 was the most revolutionary year for hardcore. Yes there was toytown shit but the amount of quality underground tracks far outway that stuff. Summer 1992 might have been the peak for pianoey happy bollocks but who the fuck likes a set full of that. Noise Factory, Goldie, Nasty Habits, A Guy Call...

Re: What do people look for in oldskool mixes these days?

I cant agree with you basically writing 1991 and 1992 off compared to 1988 - 1989. Im a big house head but in terms of the innovation going on in 1991 - 1992 with breakbeats and the sheer diversity of hardcore tunes compared the standard 4/4 of house then 1991 and 1992 piss all over the earlier years.

Re: What do people look for in oldskool mixes these days?

When i first started to listen to hardcore mixtapes in my youth and before i really grasped the concept of mixing two records together i used to find it really hard to work out where one tune ended and one started.

20 years later i like mixes that make me feel like that again.
