Lemon D – Break It Up (1996)

Video

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.

Ed Rush & Nico – Technology (1997)

Video

I’m fairly sure I could write a blog with daily posts for about a decade that solely dealt with drum and bass tunes that sample Blade Runner. It would be a good read though and quite Dillinja heavy. Here’s a doozy from Ed Rush & Nico, this would be on repeat if I was thinking about writing sci-fi based in some dystopian future. Oh, a bit like Blade Runner then.

Ed Rush & Nico ‎- Technology (No U-Turn 1997)

Video

Blade Runner samplin’ hardcore stabbin’ tech steppin’ brilliance from Ed Rush and No U-Turn head honcho Nico. Make sure you wait ‘til 3:25 for the nastiness. Strangely enough has a occasional noise in the background that sounds a bit like the Outlook email noise. Caught me out a few times.
