You know what? I bet Nick even knows what I've produced and I haven't even released anything yet!

I got it! IS Agent Nick a timelord?

Intastella Video "Can You Fly Like You Mean It?" 8

This looks like some sort of promo 'on stage' vid similar to St Etienne's early 'mock live' promo vids. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N09LZ_nDcWo&feature=related I recon it's using the 808 state remix of the track of the Drifter ep. Wot'chu gonna do? When the John Bonham beats come down on you!!???...

When I think of 'Hardcore' movements I think of the following labels

Moving Shadow
Suburban Base
Formation Records
Shut Up and Dance Records
MetalHeadz

I'm in league with the Breakbeat Jungle UK Hardcore definition...

My copy finally arrived.... It is phenomenal listening to all this amazing early music. I have to tip my hat to the group for including 'In Yolk' because you can hear the explorations that later became essential in the direction they've always taken in their recordings. I'm happy Graham clarified th...

Yes... i need to tip my hat to this comp as well. The Saints are one of my all-time favorite indy-acts and this compilation is a stunner. In fact, many of the remixes still hold water today. Honorable mentions are The Chem Bros breakbeat rework of Like a Motorway (Heeavy!!!) and Aphex Twin's Crunchy...

It's funny, I was messing about with my odyssey (just got one this year!!) and I stumbled onto some amazing vintage video game sounds. What a diverse synth.... Graham... is it wrong for me to assume 808 were referring to the odyssey with this track name? What synth was the band praising with 'sexy s...

Yah... I pretty much compose loops with fruity on my P.C. and since I don't have a midi connection on my P.C. I sample my loop arrangements into my Akai S-612 at the right bmp of a track I'm working with and have fun triggering the loop off my Juno (then arranging it on atari cubase then dump it int...

If had only $300-$500 I'd seriously seek out a Juno 106. I own one and it's wonderful to play with. (I use the Juno for bass and ambient sounds but i also use my Pro E or D 50 coz they tend to sound brighter than the Juno) It's funny, you can make incredible sounding records with very little. My cur...
