    Which labels haven't gone through the process of digitising their releases?

    A lot of the time I will be buying records and then realise I could've and probably should've just bought wav copies and saved my wallet. But I can always find money for tunes that are not available digitally. The only one I can think of at the moment is Bassbin and some old jungle labels, although I am sure there are loads more that beatport hasn't snapped up yet.

    I really do like mixing records and prefer it to mixing CDs but if I want to build the collection that I want I'm gona have to sacifice some vinyl goodness.

    The vinyl for the Ena LP has none of the tracks that are in the CD version. Didn't know about the 1 track off the 13 releases though, that's pretty cool!

    You can't get full cycle anywhere since DNBA closed. Also early creative source.

    Nah they started releasing on Juno Download a few years ago after I got in touch with Rohan — apparently he was also getting pressured by Presha (haha) but I think he just wanted them for himself! He released a few but then stopped with no real explanation, which was a bit disappointing because I put in a bit of effort to promote them and was looking forward to having the entire back catalogue. :(

    Anyway, there are four releases still up on Juno here:

    i actually quite like the idea that tunes are only available to buy on vinyl. Adds some extra exclusivity

    Some old labels that come to mind that put out good material:
    Partisan (old dnb label, not Deer Tick's home)
    Phuturistic Bluez (Juno seems to have some of theirs)
    Phuturo

    If I think of more, I'll add them.

    Yeah those guys had a couple of joker releases up about a year ago and I even asked them if theyd be putting more up but they never replied. Looks like theres a few more there now, cheers.

    Even bizzy b's own site junglistdownload.com only has 4 joker releases. He should just stick all of them up
