Studio 2 - Who Jah Bless
...


Just managed to piece this together, this was actually a show broadcast right after the passing of Stevie Hyper D, which according to my notes featured a series of answerphone recordings from many of the scene's big names, offering messages of condolance. Grooverider also played a segment of a Nicky Blackmarket & Stevie Hyper D recording, from a 'One In The Jungle' show I believe - likely 30.05.97 going by my details, but possibly 29.11.96 going by the list. Also Studio 2 "Who Jah Bless" was played in here, somewhere

voiceovers
- on Side Effects complains of having hayfever "but today just a few sniffles"
- on Voyager gives gig guide for Movement at Bar Rumba on 16th July, and Source at The Zodiac, Oxford on 17th July

Thanks Ornette, loads of good stuff there, i'll update the 1st page index later this week.

Cool... Do you think you might bump that DOA thread, see if anyone's turned up any other recordings.

Incidentally, does anyone know what's going on with the D&B arena forums?? Haven't been able to get on it for months... every time I try it keeps going straight to the log in screen wanting me to fill out a non existant captcha, yet going by the latest/active links at the bottom seems people are still posting on it, odd.

Also - on the look out for some live broadcast I heard from them in 1998? I remember it having Serious Sounds on it, and No Reality, also this tune with this big sort of boomy amen in it I'd love to hear again

Can't find any details for live shows, on https://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/ in that year

I have a word document with extra tracklistings but no mixes to match, i'll post them here for information at this stage :

These are all from that (dead) 1ITJ thread, right? (also referenced on that wikidot here)
They all look mostly like 1999 to my eyes, though the first one is 28th February 1998
the second one appears to be ... 27th February 1999


There's a couple more from that 1Xtra 'One In The Jungle' thread, for 1999, on this section here:

Codename John & DJ SS – Distance (UNRELEASED VERSION)


So, the World Of Drum & Bass album, right? I wonder if this is another one that has tracks different on the LP to the CD, like the Jazz & Bass Session II & Session III compilations.

Could be worth checking

NB. on intro to Creepers, mentions "could UFO still be at number 1 with the Contact LP, it was number 1 last week"

Not sure where the date comes from precisely but does give gig guides for Saturday 27th on top of Transmission, though is unclear when those events are in relation... does mention the Contact LP being no.1 for the 3rd week so I suppose that does put it after 20/02/99

So... on to this series of live broadcasts, as alluded to earlier

Similar to the 'Radio 1 Tour' of 2000, it appears they went on a previous one in May of this year, again as a series of four dates...  listening to the archives it's unclear if it was given a specific name or not; they refer to it as "the fabio & grooverider tour" in one bit, "radio 1 tour" in another... Think I'll go with 'Drum & Bass Tour' which is what they state in one instance.

Found some reference on the BBC genome site, which I'll go through and add - one of these is somewhat poignant to look at now.

Worth noting, all of these shows are given as the friday on that site, where as we are currently listing as saturday

I think at that point it was 0000-0200 Saturday morning

Always got talked about as Friday night, but the listing had it as Saturday morning. Similar to the essential mix when that was on at a similar time

I'm wondering now if these two were infact the same show....
I think I heard some of this 'Prototype' broadcast... If I'm not mistaken, the tune Jumping Jack Frost opens with is precisely the same as the second one of Ed Rush & Optical. It had a sort of 'steel pan' intro to it, perhaps not a steel pan exactly but something similar... and I remember getting the impression from the MC at the time it was one of Ed Rush & Optical's own. It's not something I've heard since, certainly.

Thinking now, I reckon I lost interest from it being a live broadcast, and not hearing Fabio & Grooverider playing... and then tuning in later which is probably what that other bit is I remember. Going by those other live shows it's clear they were playing that 1998-dated "Serious Sounds" several times in 1999, and i'm strongly suspecting now that 'boomy amen' tune I remember is John B "Prowler"

It's unclear whether the other side of the tape, given as "BBC Radio 1 - F & G - 8A 1998 [Ripped by Adam C]" is a continuation or not, though the tracks seem to match the same time period. The bit given at end of 8B however appears is a later recording, from a year or so later.
