Pity. Be sure to snatch Pump Up The Volumn while at it.

The Massey mix is really something (havn't heard the other one yet). Selected gems - past and present.

I guess that is Walter Carlos peaking out.

Anyone who knows the first track? Or a full listing actually. Graham.

80808080808 sampled on ol' school tune

The x-ray ears has made yet another sample spot. Check out Nitrous "Moonwalk" from 1990. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwXA2Tgy5sk Check out the sounding of the synth on the main melodyline. It is exactly the same as the intro on 80808080808 and it cannot be a coincidence. Also it is notisable, tha...

Pacific 707 (Greg Wilson mix) and more

Greg Wilson finishes off his absolutely amazing Essential Mix of last weekend with Pacific 707 (Hacienda style). Including his own effects and the Jesse Jackson speech known from Come Together. Promise me to check it out before it is too late. Massive. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/essentialmix/ The O...

The Leo Leo one is a close to public domain as it gets. Used in 100's of tunes. My best guess is some Jamaican origin. Ahm.

- and I have been after it for years.

If it is the one I have on VHS it is introduced with a feature on house music feat. Electribe 101 and others. My recording is so poor I gave up making a transfer.

It wasn't on the vinyl, so in that respect you're right about it being a CD bonus track. Which puzzles me to this day. Olympic Flutey Mix is so wonderful and it was a mistake to omit it generally. I would have taken out Lambrusco Cowboy. Ex:El is otherwise a complete and perfect album. True classic.

Is this exclusive this this CD? (guess so) Ran through some tunes on there on Juno and it is really goosebump stuff. The Derrick May stuff like R-Theme is so bloddy timeless. Sounds like it has a crisp sound as well. Justin Robertson is also one of my heros from the early 90's. Apparently he is the ...

This TuneID thread is someone looking for a 1993 track that in my ears is much Pacific influenced.
