It says it's Foul Play Vol. 3 - Open Your Mind (Foul Play Remix) , but that tune at the start def isn't that.

ya that opening tune is nice... I've been asking around about that for as long as I've been spinning. I asked Tango .. he didn't know.. I emailed SS, asking about that track as well as a couple other dubs from that era. he didn't shine any light on what it was, but said something like "oh damn those DATs are probably tucked away in a shoebox buried underneath boxes in some storage room." - hehe. point being.. they aint gonna be seeing the light of day anytime soon, so I aint holding my breath.. lol. would be interesting if Mr. Gyr8 comes across the dub in his crates and can enlighten us =)

sick track though - I knew it was SS / Formation production as soon as I heard it. the whole set is incredible and flawlessly mixed. Ratty on point as usual

Thats definatly something to do with formation, i'm pretty sure i've got this somewhere in my storeroom cause i remember listening to it a while back, i've got a stack of "strange" formation pressings with different cat numbers on each side etc etc that i've been meaning to sort through for ages but just never seem to get round to it!

I'll ask mastersafe next time i see him maybe he can id it

Let's face it 1993 this tune was played and it's 2010 so it's highly unlikely it will ever get ID'd and even if it does it will be just another one of those tunes that will never see the light of day..
Saying that!!!

Spoke to Ratty on the night of Cutloose and he ID'd it as a Jumpin Jack Frost & ss Tune didn't say what it was tho :-(

infact he's exact words were...
''it's a frosty tune '' '' frosty & ss''

Lol ;-)

Ez Elusive Yeah that's the CD i had many moons ago... Sure it wasn't tracklisted tho?
it's Ratty @ The Edge Experience
Think it also came out as a Tape Pack aswell

Still no idea to the tune then ?
Maybe you should remix it Elusive ;-)

Might be worth dropping SS a line, he's known for being keen to release anything from his back catalogue if it might be worth a few quid to him!

From what I've heard the only reason he wouldn't be interested is because of the effort and apparent lack of current vinyl sales. I'm pretty sure if somebody offered him a wad of cash to license tracks requiring zero effort, he'd be all over it!

All he's really interested in these days is doing d&b events outside the uk he's got stuff goin on in the usa and alsorts, i think most of the formation back catalogue is available for download or last time i spoke to him i know this was his plan.

When they lost 5HQ (the record shop where formation records and there studios etc were based) a lot of stuff just got left behind cause i know there people that took over the building and there were like 20,000 records just left there (nothing much good unfortunatly just from the spin off labels really) and the rest of the stuff just got shoved into a container and pretty much ignored since! there wasnt a lot of good stuff left as me and quite a few others had been up in the attik at formation and had most the good bits! but i'd guess that the dats etc are probably buried in this container somewhere or who knows??? maybe even leroy hasnt got a clue???
Next time i see him i'll have a word and see if i can get a bit more info out of him maybe i can get him to have a search and dig the dats out.

That's just wonderful :D
But a shame if it's going to remain unreleased. Hell, i'd be willing to pay for just a rip of a dubplate...
