The EP for this week is the first import record I ever bought. It was purchased, mid 1994 at a lousy record store in New Jersey called Planet X where the owner of the store had some sort of personal grudge against hardcore/jungle as he refused to stock the stuff untill I (and others) bugged him non stop. This was one of the first records stocked at the shop. Had I been older and more serious about records at the time I wouldn't have bothered going there and I would have just gone to Liquid Sky, Sonic Groove, or Satalite Records in NYC (which would have had a much better selection).... but I didn't.
Anyway... this was my first record and It just so happens to be one of the best hardcore jungle records I've ever heard that came out in 1994. Its got everything you could ask for in such a tune: chipmonk divas, raging amen beats, beautiful strings, great bass, stutter edits, and thats what you get. Such a tune wouldn't sound out of place in an LTJ Bukem set or a Slipmatt set as all bases are covered here.
Sadly this is a white label and so I don't know what it is. So far Jeff Hillman's "Raptures Discography" doesn't even know what it is so I'm totaly in the dark as to what this could be. Before DOA went the way that it did I was able to speak to one of the current owners of Sound Scape records and he doesn't even know what this could be as according to him hes not the original owner and the original owner didn't keep logs or paper work on the releases (which sounds a bit _odd_ to me). So if anyone out there who downloads this knows that this is, please do tell. I just guessed at the track names because that sample is in the tune. The "A" side has more of the strings but I prefur side "AA" as its more DJ friendly and fun to mix.
