N



i do love the label's graphics




                                            









but also love the sonics inside the packaging

















this one - watch your bassbins i'm telling ya



that one made the glass shake in my window frames

another genius piece of darkbleep



Network's attempt at pop crossover




although they actually achieved it with this lot



nexus 21 in 'rave loons' alias





hark at the Nitro Deluxe "on a mission" sample in that last tune - even as rave japesters they knew their history (i've long thought "Let's Get Brutal" / "This Brutal House" = THE bleep'n'bass prototype)

and fuck me another Nitro Deluxe sample in this tune - this time plucked from "Brutal" itself











post not exactly in honour of, but in acknowledgement of this recent publication




whose contents i cannot comment upon, not having been sent it  (go figure indeed) but i expect it's a necessary and thorough work
