He says believe what you want so I will! I don't believe any of it. It was definitely 89, I remember it like it was yesterday. Or maybe 90, oh actually perhaps it was 92! Make your mind up dude.

We need a photo of the record. I'm a proper nerd when it comes to pressings, easiest way to spot a forgery.

Little test for fun -

Have a listen to the following clip, featuring 3 tracks.
Is it old skool, or made within the last 10 years? :)

I'd say 1 is last 10 years, 2 and 3 are old skool :)

I've actually only just got around to listening to this. The idea this could be made in 89 is definitely laughable, but I wonder if the information was less to generate sales and perhaps more to try and seem groundbreaking in some way? "Look what we were doing before everyone else!"

They are all from the same EP.
http://www.discogs.com/MOLEQ-Untitled/release/527948

Came out in 94, but I knew the chap that made it from school - a year or 2 before this came out, I popped round his as he was selling a keyboard - he played a couple of other bits to me (not on this ep) - one of which sampled Willo-The-Wisp, which had a chopped up vocal saying "Mavis Cruet Tripping on E" :)

Not a single copy has sold on discogs, and it's only on there because I added it some years back.
How many people on here own it? (Not inc the person I sold my copy to).
There must be at least a few hundred copies out there.

So going back to this Q-Bass ep - it is very possible that this was just a localised release & only got added to discogs a few years back due to the scare amount of copies that got out - not everyone who likes old skool adds stuff to discogs.
It certainly sounds old skool to me.
And going by what he's said about the akai - a fully loaded one could cope with the amount of sample length used on each tune.

Interesting stuff. I went for 1 as more recent just because I knew 2 and 3 definitely weren't (the breaks aren't exactly synced well with the kicks!) and I figured you would put one newer tune in there :D

Although they're all rough around the edges I quite like those tunes. A couple of years too late to ever get play I guess.
