the only way to hear new music was via pirate radio or the clubs. Armed with a C-90 this is where you would hear some serious classics. Hearing this track on a random show on pirate years back, this slow build up as it drops was an utter dream to hear. Particularly around the time when DJs were dropping quick cuts/fast drops and whatever else.
This is the mix that got me thinking about an important musical period of my life.
Sometimes you just reminisce about music you listened to when you were growing up.
I grew up to a whole plethora of music. But being part of the UK House and Garage movement was something special. I was too young for the rave era and being part of jungle/drum and bass was amazing; but the UKG era was perfect. I was old enough to be a part of the whole scene and take advantage of it. It’s probably been 10-12 years since I’ve listened to these tracks… but thanks to a DJ Blakey mix on soundcloud, it all brings it back. (Link to come so hold tight).
