I would love to be in an open field either somewhere in at an ancient native territory in the U.S or deep into the jungle of Amazonas and having this on the highest volume on the biggest speakers you can think of. Immediately when the track starts out you’re just right there and then it keeps building up and when the crescendo at the end hits, you feel euphoric … almost like an out of body experience (not that I have ever had one).

UK label founded in 1989 by Leroy Small and Eidris Hassam. Really got going by 1992 and released countless classics of darkside hardcore/jungle over the next couple years.

This blogpost is mainly for those new to these music genres, but the veterans might enjoy the documentaries included on this page. A BBC documentary from 1994, one on LTJ Bukem, Goldie etc.
I mainly have experience and knowledge within the Drum ‘n Bass scene, the 1990’s is what is closest to my heart, and especially the so-called “Liquid” stuff without vocals is what gets me.

I have no idea why I call this style of 1990’s techno “British Hooligan Techno”. But all I see infront of me is white British Adidas wearing working class guys on ecstasy dancing in big green fields. But the album I mainly associate this group with, Interspecies Communication is more of a spiritual journey that much like their 1998 movie takes you on a journey around the globe to people who doesn’t live like we in the west do.
This is one of my all-time favorite “pump-myself-up” tracks. It’s simply amazing in both the Mad Cobra & Robyns versions. Robyns performance on Letterman show is simply one energy boost of the ages. The lyrics here are not that much to talk about, but the entire feeling of the songs hits the right spots for me.
I love this kind of techno, the real thing … not Walmart techno, you now the kind of techno that plays in Hollywood movies when they have a rave party on screen, some kind of bubble gum version of the original thing. To me Techno should be hard, heavy and almost aggressive, but at the […]
9/10 … This is a real coffee table book, 436 pages and a wooping 31x25cm. I sat down with a cup of cooffe and started at the begining. I was imiditlly sucked into this amazing universe and 6 hours later I was still at it. Writting down for me new titles to discover and listening to them on Spotify to see if I wanted to hunt down the vinyl. Another aspect I love about this kind of books is that I feel less crazy for spending so much time and so much money on music. There’s a whole lot of other people out there that are the same.

UR related the aesthetics of early Detroit Techno to the social, political, and economic circumstances which followed on from Reagan-era inner-city […]
6,6/10 … This is a digital release compilation release only if I got it right. Although it’s a compilation, so all the tracks have been released before on separate 12″. There are several amazing tracks, but unfortunately even some that doesn’t entice me ……
