    BIG UP URSELF MATE !!! He does a good show.

    As for teh Bit about 93 Formation stuff being shit...Ratty "Taste OF THings To Come"
    Ratty "Source of All Evil" ...Mastersafe "Rollin with the Punches"...EQ "End of an Era EP" , and of course "Power Play Vol1 " which may well have been released in 94 but was all 93.Not to mention that stuff like this helped shape the DnB sound..... So you are entitled to your opnion but I have to say I disagree with it. BRING THAT OLDSKOOL OUT TO ALL OJ's in DA CENTRE :sniper: :bone: :drums: :chainsaw: :wtf:

    maybe i should rephrase what i said, i think formation stuff is WEAK compared to stuff being released on: production house, lucky spin, basement, sub base, white house, bogwoppa & dance bass to name a few. at the end of the day, its all personal opinion, ive just never been a big fan of early formation, or moving shadow for that matter (apart from the hyper on experience eps).

    yeah one of my favourite ever tunes is Dont Come No Ruffer on Breakbeat Pressure 2. remember walking into a warehouse in early 93 and it was playing, I was like 'oh okay this is what its about'.
    but I understand you dig those other labels more, my man is on a mission to find the Whitehouse back cat.
