As featured on the killer Actress DJ Kicks mix.
Shed on form. Killer track.
I’ve got a lot of time for this tune, the vocal is perfect. From Portable’s 2011 album Into Infinity.
Back in the day when you got four tracks on your 12″!
For some reason he’s listed as Bab.B.Kane for this release and has about 10 different variations on discogs but I’m sticking with Bay B Kane. This guy was seriously prolific and responsible for so many smashers.
Let’s Roll-esque drums and a distinctive bassline lead into a breakdown that sounds to me like a sunrise. This turns a little darker then back to the filth. They don’t make ’em like this any more. I think I remember a Randall mix where he goes into Dead Dred after this, it’s burnt deep into my cerebellum. Probably an AWOL one.
Bubbly house / techno goodness from Rivet, whose fantastic real name is Mika Adam Erik Hallbäck Vuorenpää apparently. The apparently is not part of said name.
If you listened to this and didn’t know who it was Lemon D might not spring straight to mind but Kevin King it was. Annoyingly printed on a picture disc (I like to see when the darker quiet areas are going to hit) it is nevertheless a stonking piece of techstep, there’s not much that sounds quite like it. Squelchy, lovely and dark.
Quite simply one of the finest drum and bass tunes of all time. Eshewing the more popular amens of the time for a programmed beat and all the better for it, the beauty is in the space and those lush pads. Tony Justice we will see you here again, of that I have no doubt.
Fantastic piece of proto jungle with some hardcore noises thrown in to boot from the bizarrely monikered Princess of the Posse (3 blokes, one of who was Bug Kann). There is something undeniably joyous about this tune, the bassline is so infectious it’s ridiculous. I wore out a Kenny Ken tape in my car I rewound this tune so much. You also don’t hear male vocals that often in this genre but the chap humming along is perfect. I’d like to know if it’s a sample or not.
