    I have been looking for this record ever since i started collecting vinyl. Only test presses were made and all sent to select djs with no proper release. people reckon that there were only around 25 of these made.

    One of the most valuable pieces of jungle wax about (along with Atmospherical Jubilancy). Photek at his peak in 1997

    3 days ago some absolute saint who bought the release on discogs posted up recorded WAV files of both sides on the discogs forum.

    i just thought everyone should know.

    if anyone with a discogs account would like to thank him, heres the thread.

    im also thinking about doing a short run press of this record with proper mastering so if anyone is interested please get in contact.

    There was also a version of say it that was released under another photek alias system x in 1994 but these two unreleased versions have always been the best imo.

    Haha yea!

    Obviously not for profit. I would just love to have these 2 on wax and I'm sure there are others out there too

    As any of the label owners that browse this place will probably explain, it's not solely about whether it's for profit or not.

    tbf people have been pressing tunes themselves for a long time and i doubt he wants to sell the pressed copies, as far as i understood it he just wants to look if there are any others that want the wax so that maybe the production cost goes down a bit (which i doubt)

    @samurai we had such a discussion once but i can't for my life remember in which thread sorry you can imagine how it went tho, one dude wanted to press I think 100 copies of something and a shitton of people said that's wrong and I think that was it basically
