[JKF 01 + JEDI 09] Luna-C - Kniteforce Remastered : Luna​-​C Vol.1 + DJ Lien - R.V.S. EP [Limited Edition 12" Vinyl Pre-Orders Open Now!!!]

A1 - Edge Of Madness.
A2 - Death Of A Psychopath.
B1 - Piano Progression.
B2 - I Know U (D'Cruze Remix).

From it's inception in 1993, DJ Luna-C's pioneering hardcore label, Kniteforce Records has stamped it's unique mark on the history of hardcore music. Right from the birth of hardcore, jungle and happy hardcore to it's current status as premier supplier of upfront, nuskool hardcore with a sideline in breakcore and drum & bass.
Hot on the heels of Luna-C's manic remix of DJ Jedi's 'Here It Comes', Jedi Recordings unveils the first in a series of official Kniteforce Records reissues, showcasing the very best and most sought after tracks on the label on vinyl, with the release of 'Kniteforce Remastered : Luna-C Vol. 1'.

Digging deep into the Kniteforce back catalogue from between the years of 1993-1994, the EP opens with two massive darkside classics from Luna-C. The tripped out 'Edge Of Madness', with it's legendary sinister vocal and the equally menacing and frantically drum-programmed 'Death Of A Psychopath'. Two tracks chock-full of eclectic samplage and fierce energy.

On the flipside we are introduced to the original Kniteforce anthem, 'Piano Progression', with it's deceptively dark intro which soon evolves into what would become the template for breakbeat, happy hardcore euphoria. Suburban Base Records'mainstay, Jay D'Cruze rounds off the EP with his manic, hip-hop infused hardcore relick of 'I Know U' to complete the lineup of an already immense selection of oldskool classics.

All tracks featured have been lovingly remastered from the original D.A.T. recordings by Chris Howell (Luna-C) himself, so whether you already have the original EP's, or are still to pick these up, then this will be the perfect opportunity to grab yourself a copy of breakbeat hardcore history courtesy of Jedi Recordings and Kniteforce Records!

The 'Kniteforce Remastered : Luna​-​C Vol.1' 12" vinyl EP is available to pre-order now from the Jedi Recordings Bandcamp store for the bargain price of £9.99 (plus Postage & Packaging) and  is expected to be ready for delivery in March 2016. The Luna-C EP is limited to only 200 vinyl copies, so better get your skates on before these disappear!!!

A1 - I Did It For The Internet Rep.
A2 - Boom (Leigh Woodly Mix).
B1 - I'm Getting Too Old.
B2 - Spice (Oranjeboom Remix).  

Following the untimely passing of Back To The Oldskool forum regular, JSA Records owner and staunch raver, Neil Miller, aka DJ Lien in January Jedi Recordings in conjunction with Paranoid Recordings have chosen to commemorate his memory with the release of 'The R.V.S. EP' on 12" vinyl. Featuring four exclusive DJ Lien tracks on their first appearance on vinyl, and with all proceeds of the EP going towards Neil's favoured charity, the Royal Voluntary Service.

'The 'R.V.S. EP' kicks off with a slice of deep and spaced out jungle with Lien's 'I Did It For The Internet Rep' mix of a darkly euphoric, 1992 hardcore classic (to give you a clue, it features a 'dancing clown'!). Up next we are introduced to 'Boom (Leigh Woodly Mix)', a vigorous blend of 1992-style breaks, vintage TV dialogue and massive buzz-saw bassline to rattle your bass bins.

DJ Lien's last ever track, 'I'm Getting Too Old', which was due to be entered into the Back To The Oldskool / Its-All-About-Oldskool track making competition in January, opens up the B-Side in oldskool jungle fashion with frantic breakbeat edits, a killer, subsonic bassline and flashes of mentasm stabs to boot . Lien's tearing 'Orangeboom Remix' of DJ Infection's 'Spice' bookends the collection perfectly by delivering a fierce salvo of junglistic breaks and sci-fi flick samplage. 

In spite of the sad news of the passing of an oldskool (and nuskool) legend, it is safe to say that the spirit of Neil Miller/DJ Lien will live on through his music for years to come.

DJ Lien's 'The R.V.S. EP' 12" vinyl is available to pre-order now from the Jedi Recordings Bandcamp store for the bargain price of £7.99 (plus Postage & Packaging) and  is expected to be ready for delivery in April 2016. The 'R.V.S. EP' is limited to 100 vinyl copies only, so better get your skates on before these disappear!!!

Bang Face Weekender 2016, 14-17 April
Southport Holiday Park, Shore Road, Ainsdale, PR8 2PZ

Following on from the epic milestone of 100 events, Bang Face returns to Southport for a long weekend raving in a classic British holiday park, 14-17 April 2016, it’s the perfect place for a music weekender. All the venues were designed for ballroom dancing and cabaret (the raving of the day) and are interlinked creating the buzz of a club atmosphere but on a festival scale. Plus everybody stays in a maze of self-catering chalets, the ideal place to lose yourself in the chaos but also survive without the stress of wondering when your next shower will be. It may now look a bit like a dystopian correctional facility but it’ll soon feel like home!

This years highlights include a headline show by Noisia who have exploded exponentially on the Drum & Bass scene. A full live band performance from ‘Madchester’ rave heroes 808 State. Canadian IDM / breakcore pioneer Venetian Snares plays live for the first time ever! The masked enigma, Angerfirst, makes his debut to teach us a lesson in Dutch hardcore. Banging Techno from US legend Joey Beltram plus an extremely rare performance from The Mover. LTJ Bukem takes on a rolling journey of D&B classics. Jungle originators M-Beat and General Levy reunite for an exclusive live set including the mighty ‘Incredible’. Plus sets from Black Sun Empire, Luke Vibert, DJ Godfather, Shut Up And Dance, The Outside Agency, Perc & Truss, Mr. C, SL2, Big Narstie, Royal-T and dozens more. In total, we have over 150 acts from all over the world making Bang Face the spiritual home for ravers who enjoy the full spectrum of upfront electronic dance music.

For the first time, the Weekender will run over four days and include a Thursday night warm-up party with 90s pop sensation the Vengaboys! What, you might say? Well, the 2016 fancy dress theme is Pop Music and you’re encouraged to come dressed as your favourite wronguns from any era with the best dressed winning a chalet for next year. The theme always sets the tone for all the fun extra activities. The infamous Rave Pool Party, don’t forget your speedos. BFTV broadcast live to all chalets which is like Richard & Judy meets The Word meets The Magic Roundabout. New for 2016 is Songs of Rave Sunday featuring a classic old skool line-up - Randall, Tango & Ratty, DJ SS and Jumping Jack Frost. We also have all the classic holiday park games like go-carting, crazy golf and a footy comp. Plus we’re holding a very special opening ceremony this year - Mark Archer from Altern 8 will be getting married live on stage! A marriage made in rave heaven and you’re all invited…

[VMRDT049] Laydee Virus - Shadows [Forthcoming From Viral-Mental Recordings 05/02/16!!!]

1/ Shadows.

Viral-Mental Records introduce another seriously deep, dark and menacing neuro, tech-stepper from Australia's very own queen of D&B darkness, Laydee Virus. Utilising a shuffling, 2-step break pattern complimented by ominous atmospherics and a low, grumbling bassline. 'Shadows' brings forth a sense of unease with it's minimalist composition, yet ever present sense of dread as opposed to going 'all-out battering ram darkness'. Which for all lovers of moody, pitch black drum & bass, is a GOOD thing!!!

The Laydee Virus, 'Shadows' single will be available to purchase from all good Viral-Mental Records digital stockists from 05/02/16, so get those speakers prepared quick!!!

[ARR069] Exit Point - Age Of Aquarius EP [Forthcoming From Allowance Records 05/02/16]

1/ Age Of Aquarius.
2/ Ladies & Gentlemen.
3/ Listen.
4/ Peace In Dub.
5/ Rise Of The G-Funk.
6/ These Sounds.

We may still be in the depths of Winter but Exit Point and Allowance Records bring to you a solid collection of Summery, liquid drum & bass and chilled downtempo breaks to bring a little sunshine into your life with the forthcoming 'Age Of  Aquarius EP'.

Opening to the sounds of a languid double-bassline and trumpet flourishes, the EP's title track, 'Age Of Aquarius' then introduces lush atmospheric pad notes and stepping, organic breaks to the mix alongside massive bass throbs and African chants to great effect. 
We are taken deep into the depths of a smokey, blues bar for some jazz-tinged drum and bass next with the smooth grooves of 'Ladies & Gentlemen' before the rolling, breakbeat percussion and infectious synth melodies of 'Listen' takes us on another cinematic jazz & bass excursion to make even the E-Z Rollers jealous.

The tempo drops a few notches for the downtempo dub and breaks of 'Peace In Dub', which introduces phat bass backed by ten-tonne, layered breaks and skankin' reggae rhythms. The pace picks up once more with the amen break backed 'Rise Of The G-Funk', which utilises that infamous G-Funk, sinewave synth melody over one hell of a funkadelic groove. 'These Sounds' closes the EP by giving us a deceptively brooding intro before presenting us with a bouncy, upbeat bassline and disco-horns to bring a touch of light to combat the aforementioned moodiness.

Altogether Exit Point delivers six upbeat liquid/downtempo tracks with a huge focus on 'live' breakbeat percussion and jazz-funk grooves with the 'Age Of Aquarius EP'. So if you're needing some music to beat those Winter blues, then look no further!!!

The Exit Point, 'Age Of Aquarius EP' is available to download from all good Allowance Records digital stockists from 05/02/16...
