Clips from old Kool FM tapes

Yesterday, 10:22 PM

I found a Kool FM tape in my pirate radio collection from Kool's 9th birthday weekend in December 2000. It's got 45 minutes of Jinxs & Jacknife playing clips from various old Kool FM tapes. They were running a competition to win 3 of them. I remember being gutted at the time that I didn't win.

I'm sharing it here in case anyone's interested. There's some gems on here.

Sub Focus, Howtek & Brooke Brothers - Verano

24 November 2019 - 09:29 PM

I was watching the first episode of BBC's Walking With Dinosaurs the other day and the opening couple of sounds/notes immediately made me think of the breakdown in Sub Focus, Howtek & Brooke Brothers - Verano.

The breakdown is at 2:35 here - https://www.youtube....h?v=NLsv-C643jc
The Walking With Dinosaurs episode is here - https://www.dailymot...m/video/x3f0sjm - and it's literally just the first few seconds.

There are other noises layered over the top in the Sub Focus tune, but I'm convinced it's the same music. However, I'm not sure whether the music is unique to Walking With Dinosaurs so the source might be the original composition.

It would be good to get your thoughts, and also see if anyone knows any more about this music.

Also, regarding the same Sub Focus track, does anyone know where the spoken sample comes from? There's some parts I can't make out, but it goes like this:

"Come, let us make this bargain. If we both return safe out of the perils that await us we will journey for a while together. But now, we must leave behind both [?? Dave and Wood ??] and must ride swiftly. My men are weary with [??........??] and I am weary also. Alas, my old age [?? ......... ??] Then, if you were to ride with me, come, we will journey under the shadow of evening."
