#nowspinning The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead. Rough Trade: ROUGH 96 (1986). Few days late but this has just had it's 30th birthday. As a 13/14 year old in 86 this album was on heavy rotation. Floppy hair trying to be melancholy band shirts and meeting JLO Holliday for Happy Shopper cola and a portion of chips and menthol fags. Then putting on this album and listening to every track intently. Not played it for years until tonight but still know all the words. Their best work. #indie #rock…

#nowspinning Jesus Jones - Zeroes & Ones. Food: 12 FOOD 44 (1993). The Prodigy Verses Jesus Jones mix is a real floor filler. Absolute mayhem from the off as only Prodigy could do. Hard and heavy. Carnage. Stark contrast to the two Aphex twin remixes on the flip. In true RDJ remix fashion it's almost a whole new track that has a snip of vocal to remind you what it once was. Both 'reconstructions' are amazing atmospheric chilled ambient class pieces. Go get. Peanuts bagging. #breakbeat…

#nowspinning Planes Mistaken For Stars - Planes Mistaken For Stars. Deep Elm Records: der-377 (1999). Bit of a different style of music for this post. I've always been a fan of alternative and hardcore rock but the majority of it got archived in the early 90's. Fast forward to early 2k a friend of mine lent me this album and it blew me away. From the moment the opener Copper and Stars fires up I was hooked. Heavy and melodic guitars rumbling bass and gruff vocals from Gared O'Donnell. The EP…

#nowspinning Adamski - Liveandirect - Magik Piano. MCA Piano: MCL 1900 (1989). I first heard this track on a mixtape doing the rounds in Ipswich in 89/90. Quality intro tons of high-hat into the big bass and break. Income on the piano up to the breakdown. When it drops back you get and the tweaking  pads come in you get a real rush hairs on back of neck stylee. The best track on the album which was recorded at various raves and clubs across the UK and Ibiza. So that is real crowd noise on…

#nowspinning Just-Ice - Back To The Old School. Fresh Records: LPRE-1 (1986). 1st album from Just-Ice. This is an electro masterpiece. 909 overload from Mantronik. Absolute classic that you should own. The title track is just relentless. The whole album is sick. #hiphop #electro #oldschool #justice #dmx #mantronik #freshrecords #vinyl #vinyljunkie #record #recordcollector #recordplayer #igvinylclub #instavinyl

#nowspinning The Mover - Nightlight (Non-Stop To Kaos). Industrial Strength Records: IS001 (1991). Shit this is dark. The Mover Presents Frontal Sickness is an understatement. What this track does to your senses is incredible. The droning bass and dark sweeping pads create a cavern of horror. Crispy hi-hats roll things along but do nothing to snap you out of hell. Had a quick blast of the flip but it is just a bit too hardcore thump thump for me these days. #techno ##hardcore #themover…

#nowspinning Wood Allen - Airport 89. Out: OUT 3180 (1989). Pulling some bits for Sunday's Wax session and this was nestled in my Detroit bits. From the off it has a classic house riff and that screaming sample is quality. Jumpy bass and break albeit slow works. Track comes alive after that with a nice big break so nice you want it to carry on for longer. Classic piece of Euro dance. Flip it over for another mix and a bunch of sounds and frequencies for scratching. #house #eurohouse #techno…

#nowspinning Om Unit - Adventures In Eden (Torchlight Vol.2). Cosmic Bridge: CBR014 (2016). Hot of the press last week. What a 12. Usual high end quality from Om Unit. Both this and Vol.1 are brilliant works of brilliance. Stuff gets experimental in places but it's good to be lead down some different paths. Eden is a real atmospheric roller. The intro goes on for an age and really works as a track on its own. Hold it down though as the drop is a beaut. Head nods and vibes a plenty. #dnb…

#nowspinning Digital - Synthesis Part 2. Function: SYNFUNCPT2 (2016). Plate 2 has some killer clown tracks but at this current moment I'm having maximum feels from Digital  Response - Lost Life. Heavy and hard stepper from the edge but then almost instantly you are are so awash in chords it's almost suffocating. Like trying to swim through jelly. But it is all good. I'm all set with that but after the breakdown you are treated to some  lovely ragga stabs inside the ride. But then the chords…

#nowspinning The Ragga Twins - Reggae Owes Me Money. Shut Up And Dance Records: SUAD LP2 (1991). Classic album right here. Every track is a classic in its own right. Bass heavy breakbeat with a dancehall flavour. Went for side 2 as Wipe The Needle samples the previous post and after pitching KLF up to 8 it mixes in most well. Not the best pressing though pretty quiet but you can get them all on 12's. #breakbeat #hardcore #dancehall #raggatwins #suad #shutupanddance #vinyl #vinyljunkie…
