I used to have quite a bit of drum’n’bass, perhaps around three hundred different pieces of vinyl… that was until an incident resulted with them all marinading for a few months in several inches of water; fusing them all together and providing a fertile ground for some mould to flourish with a rainbow of different coloured cultures. In the 1990s I used to buy a couple of monthly dance music magazines, back when they actually had something to say about dance culture. DJ Magazine was one of them and in 1997, it gave away a cassette with tracks from the Moving Shadow stable of record lables and sub-labels mixed together. Side B was on the harder side of drum’n’bass but the A side contained a lush sequence of tracks without being too ‘coffee table’; this was one of them. It would still be a very good track even without the sample of Derrick May quoted below but that is just the pièce de résistance.

It’s sad that in the twentieth century, in the 1990s we have to still go the same bullshit route… that other artists have had to go to get acceptance. If it wasn’t for the individuals… if wasn’t for the small little cities and the few little ghetto guys tryin’ to make music, it would never’ve happened. Some of these guys will never make a dime, some of these guys will be poor and die… alone; but in the process they’ve been the true renegades… and the true rebels always walk alone anyway.

    I recently came across this track and did a google search to find out who’s quote that was. Pretty amazing stuff they were putting out back then.. didn’t even come across DnB like this till the mid 2000’s.
