    Alpha Omega makes some fucking incredible tunes man. One of my favourite producers for sure.....

    Most of my favourite recent bits of his never even got released.....

    good..good...nice to see people giving this guy some credit..
    I was introduced to his sound with "Realism 2000" on reinforced...killer tune
    Plus ive never seen a flyer with his name on..what bout the US massif, ever heard bout this guy playing out?? maybe he jus prefer to be in the studio...
    personal fav is Platinum on Slow Mo..minimal track , with the best b-line ever..
    and then is the Countdown E.P on Outbreak......sickest tune ever imo...

    At the mo, the most recent stuff have lost a bit of evilness the older had, but its still smart music , and yeah, i get his stuff without hearing them

    In A O i trust:lighter:

    :D:D:D:D

    Jah Step is the flip for Realism 2000
    That was the first 2nd Wave Reinforced single
    Wouldnt mind getting that again, my copy is a bit fucked....
    hehe...got ALL Alpha Omega releases after that single, and few before that..
    And Journey To The 9th Level is wicked :devil:

    chemical rekkids search is good , they're streams are ruff lo-fi though.

    I haven't heard much but i'm liking Fractions, plus Got Me So is pretty wicked. I assume they're the older material?

    Double that..theyve got almost all his releases on back cat. Plus their 3' long, so get a decent idea of teh toon..

    Not that old..Got Me So got out round early summer last year. Yeah, Fractions is a wicked tune, it must took him weeks to arrange all dem beats...I gets dizzy every time its on.

    Ace man.. so people do know the Alpha man...so why ive never heard any of his tunes out ? I think DSL was playing Klash VIP some time ago, but other than that nada...

    Ahh! Well then I don't feel as though I've missed much in the half a year I haven't been buying DnB records. I really liked his stuff because it sounded so retro, like hands in the air blow your whistle hardcore stuff such as the Realism2000 and the "Megatron" tune on CountdownEP.

    I guess he stopped making stuff like this?

    Really ?!?! wicked tune...cant wait for the JB rmx

    @1992...cant agree more ..non hardcore = Ghay..:teeth:
    on a more serious tip, i think that his sound just matured, its still hard, with less core...:p
