WOW :shock: you got the full dubplate of it!!!


And Elusive - "Jack Smooth is god" - yes i personally can't get enough of this 'jungle tekno' sound since I started playing 93 stuff again, think I like it even more so than I do jungle!! and I didn't even really rate it back then!

Has anyone actually asked Jack Smooth if he still got any DATs? I get this suspicion he may...

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been after this fucker for 16 years!!

Heard it played briefly on BPM in early '93 by Grooverider but thanks to BPM having shit names for the tracks I had no idea what it was. I've even asked on here 3 or 4 times about it and no-one knew, also asked back on the hyperreal email list and various other places.

*FAVOURITES CLIP*

I would give me right knacker for this.

That New Direction mix is also decent.

That combined with the Kev Bird track would be an essential purchase.

You should ask that bloke to beg wax doctor to start making tunes again..

It's defo gonna happen mate, i've already spoken to will about doing a joint release & he's up for it

Yeah, I'm definitely up for it :D

Got a few single tracks that would make a great B-side to this release if Dave and I do it
as planned, as a joint release. I'd also love to see that unreleased New Direction remix
come out too, any news on of this is available?

can you try & get a number of some kind djdelirious??

If we could do a joint release as a 4-track EP, with both the unreleased Kev Bird tune
and the unreleased New Direction Remix, plus a couple of things I've got up my sleeve
on the other side, that would make a killer release...
