just 4 U Toronto

crikey, the Motherlode -- Toronto Rave Mixtape Archive

via Michaelangelo Matos, who directs me to the Rufige Kru / Phantasy set on Harddrive 89.5 FM November 1992. Goldie and Phantasy on the mic with some vibetastic patter, ruff tune selection of hardcore-into-darkness and jungle tekno.... a premiere of "Knowledge" and its timestretched/pitchshifted breaks (Phantasy: "if your jaws are hanging out, tuck 'em in")  and an interview with the NRG Crew as in "Need Your Lovin'"

You can find it two items before S section begins in this monster A to Z treasure trove of mixtapes

Toronto famously had (has?)  the most Anglophile rave scene in North America, followed the nuum a long way along the line, hardcore to jungle to drum 'n' bass to UKG + 2step.... seems to have got off the train with grime ... either stayed on it with dubstep, or got back on?
