Rolldabeats/Shy FX - Bambaata [Ebony]/Glamour Gold - The Only One [RAP records]
My mate and I were selecting an intro tune from the shortlist and wanted to use Hype's "RollDaBeats" vocal in the intro. It ended up as this... using the original and Dillinja mix of Bambaata.
.
John B - Salsa Remix [Formation]
Let's start on a happy vibe with this one from senor Juan B. From the World of Drum and Bass album, this one is instantly recognisable with the 'speedy gonzales' vocals.
.
Adam F - Circles (Andy C Remix) [F-Jams/Positiva]
Aah... Bob James sounds nice in this Adam F classic, from the collectible Picture Disc promo.
.
Breakbeat Era - Breakbeat Era [XL Recordings]
Takes me back to MTV's Party Zone. From an era where there were probably more DnB videos than there are now... This tune jumpstarted what the Bristol crew later fine-tuned with songs like "Brown Paper Bag" and "Share The Fall", combining live instruments with sequenced ones.
.
Jonny L - Piper (Grooverider Mix) [XL Recordings]
Arguably his biggest hit after "Hurt You So" (well, apart from "Out Of Your Mind"...)
.
Adam F - Brand New Funk [V Recordings]
If "Circles" didn't put Adam F on the map in capitals, then this must have. Again leaning heavily on a 70's rare groove by Bob James with the looped "brand new"vocal all over the intro.
.
Reprazent - Share The Fall (Grooverider Mix) [Talkin' Loud]
In my opinion one of Grooveriders finest works... The original is already great, but this mix just perfectly blends vocals withinstrumental bits and deep synths with breakdowns.
.
Dillinja - Tudor Rose [Hardleaders]
What would a mix be without Dillinja. This tune is a nice example of his well known raw, distorted , trademark sound. The originator at work. Later often imitated.
.
Boymerang - Still (Dom & Optical VIP mix) [Sony]
This hard to find tune, which is only available on a 6-track promo CD, is the ultimate in abstract tunes for me!
.
Cause 4 Concern - Epox [Cause 4 Concern]
The second Cause 4 Concern release on their own label. Dark, nice synths.
.
Jonny L - Wish U Had Something (Jonny L remix) [XL Recordings]
Very strong remix by the man himself, remixed from a dark tune in an abstract one.
.
Breakbeat Era - Our Disease Tera [XL Recordings]
This is what happens if you're working on "Bulletproof" but load the wrong set of samples... A very nice accident!
.
Krust - Warhead [V Recordings]
Talking about simple tunes that do damage! This tune and the one following it are what that's all about. Both released at about the same time on V and directed straight to the dance floors.
.
Scorpio - Trouble [V Recordings]
Using Indeep's "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life", this one became a huge hit!
.
Ed Rush & Optical - Function [V Recordings]
The first mixdown included 6 tracks by Ed Rush, Optical and Fierce. I don't consider myself a fan, but man, they certainly released a LOT of great tunes in the late 90's! And don't worry, there are still 3 left in this mix... I took a few out of the playlist to balance things out, but this one had to be in the mix.
.
Flytronix - Contemporary Accousticz Jam (Origin Unknown Remix) [Moving Shadow]
Next on the list is Flytronix. Andy C and Ant Miles gave this song the Ram treatment.
.
Cyba Space feat. Shanie - Life (Dom & Roland Remix) [Cyba Space]
Not sure what it is, but the Cyba Space releases were mostly remixes by people like Dillinja, Ray Keith and Moving Fusion. But I picked the remix by Dom & Roland for its nice vocals and atmosphere and great flow.
.
Future Forces - Dead By Dawn [Renegade Hardware]
Classic tune on Renegade Hardware from what later became one half of Bad Company. Both the original and the "Final Chapter" mix are great.
.
Dom & Roland - Thunder [Moving Shadow]
As soon as you hear the intro synth, you know what tune is coming. Dom delivers once again.
.
Ed Rush, Optical & Fierce - Alien Girl [Prototype]
Dark, raw synths on the flipside from Cutslo.
.
Ed Rush & Optical – Compound [Virus]
This track from the Wormhole album is just awesome. The drop before the bass comes in is brilliant!
.
Souljah - Fade 2 Black [Hardleaders]
With Dillinja already in, I just had to get Lemon D as well. Been shifting this around a bit, but at the moment the amen part and the drop work perfectly with the next one…
.
Roni Size - Brown Paper Bag [Talkin' Loud]
The original that spawned so many covers... from DJ SS to Foul Play Productions, everybody seems to have released their own double bass tune.
.
Profound Noise - Wired [Underfire]
Personal preference here. I just had to use something from the Audio Blueprint/Under Fire stable and I've always loved this one. It's just so different from everything else I know. It's happy, jumpy, a bit cheesy... but I love it!
.
John B – Secrets (remix) [New Identity]
The original from the "Prototype Years" album was remixed for his own "Visions" album, with an added vocal (and slight re-arrangement).
.
Lemon D - 12.01 [Valve]
The first Valve release is definitely a double A-side! Though Violent Killa is a great tune, I opted for this one. A bleepy intro (that goes well with John B)... a drop... and an amen workout!
.
Bad Company - The Nine [Bad Company Recordings]
First Bad Company release... this one hits hard! Driving bass drone and that synth fill...
.
Swift - Twisted [Charge]
Swift's first releases on his Charge label were all big tunes. Whether it's (another) "Just Roll" remix, the strange string intro of "Feel Good" or the first release, "Twisted", with it's combination of bass sounds.
.
Moving Fusion - Turbulence [Ram Records]
Over the years, Andy C and Ant Miles have gathered some nice talent on their labels. The first real outside act was Moving Fusion, who made quite an impact with “Turbulence" from the "Sound In Motion" album.
.
Calyx - Double Zero [Audio Couture]
I think by now it's clear I'm into the more abstract tunes... Calyx' star rose quickly in the late 90's. And the drop in this one... nice synths… and then the snare with the reverb... just awesome!
.
Ram Trilogy - Evolution [Ram Records]
"Things are gonna change"… but hopefully not too much! Another great one from the Ram crew, which is typical for the releases around the "Molten Beats" album as far as the instrumentation is concerned. Though I really wanted to put the vinyl-only track "Both Worlds" in here as well…
.
Bad Company - The Pulse [Prototype Recordings]
The other anthem from Bad Company in this era, this time on Grooverider's Prototype label. It follows the same rules as "The Nine". Use a driving beat and bass... and it just blends so perfectly with the last tune...
.
London Elektricity - Rewind (Acoustic Version) [Hospital]
(Yes, I know the CD is from 2002, but the vinyl promo also starts with the acoustic version!) What better way to end than on a quiet, vocal note and asking everybody to Rewind the "Decade In The Mix"!

01: M-Beat - Surrender [Renk]
Truly one of the unsung heroes of hardcore and jungle, M-Beat has certainly made some of my favourite tunes of the mid-90s. Here he comes with a breakneck mix of the usual ragga samples, pitched up amens and chipmunk vocals to get the party started.

02: Noise Factory - Breakage #5 (Remix) [Straight From The Bedroom]
One of the lesser known tracks on the mix. A nice little gem hidden away on the third Straight From The Bedroom 12", a label related to the Ibiza/Kemet/3rd party stable.

03: Trip 3 - The Crack (The Final Trip Mix) [Kniteforce]
A label mainly known for its hardcore output but with one or two forays into the jungle world... and very good they are too! This is the third in the Trip series; Cutty Ranks samples over some nasty amens, it's a surprise this one's not heard more frequently.

04: Subnation - Scottie (Ray Keith Remix) [Future Vinyl]
Ray Keith comes with the Star Trek sounds in the intro of the Evil Dead sampling classic. Bumping bassline and wicked amen edits make this a nice roller, given the typical RK remix treament.

05: DJ Hype - Roll The Beats (Inject The Bass Mix) [Suburban Base]
Well, it had to be included, really. The instantly recognisable synth line in the intro, GQ's vocal interludes, beats that are almost falling over each other and a bassline to shake your socks off all make this a huge hit with the crowds. "Absolutely T for tremendous".

06: Dillinja & Berty B - Lion Heart [Lion Heart]
The master of the Amen with one of his biggest and baddest tunes. A huge crowd favourite, I had to let this one roll to get that second drop in... typical Dillinja style.

07: Lloydie Crucial - Southern California (Concrete Mix) [Lloydie Crucial]
Little more than a beat and a bassline laid over an old Tony Toni Toné sample but it just works so well. I'm always surprised by the reactions that this one gets when I play it out!

08: Roni Size & DJ Die - Music Box (Remix) [Full Cycle]
One of the earliest outings from the Bristol boys and, in my opinion, one of their finest. Here's the remix of the seminal Music Box; rolling beats, sparse samples and a bassline wandering all over the place. Absolutely wicked!

09: Lemon D - Feel It [Conqueror]
Dillinja's right hand man coming with what he does best. Pads, shuffling beats and female vocals stabs descend into pure Amen tearout bizznizz in the trademark LD style. "Bust this!"

10: DJ SS - Green [Colour Series]
In the years when SS and Formation were on fire, this 12" popped up on the much overlooked Colour series sub-label. A remix of one of the tracks on the earlier Red release, this one stepped up the game a bit further with the massively chopped up Amen edits, punching bassline and wicked Method Man vocals.

11: Gang Related & Mask - Bass Is Rollin' [Dope Dragon]
Another Bristol piece from a label that just could do no wrong in 94 & 95. B-side to the much played "Soldier", this is a real simple Amen workout with its distinctive descending bassline that I don't hear too often any more... "Adiós señor"

12: P-Funk - P-Funk Era (VIP Mix) [AWOL]
Pascal's finest moment gets the VIP treatment for the AWOL album and it's a beauty. Mary J's still singing with the KRS vocals laid over the top and a bassline to keep the tune bubbling along.

13: L Double - Music For The 90s [Flex]
Flex was really knocking out some wicked tunes back around the time when this came out. Taken from one of my all time favourite 12"s this tune really shows L Double's steppin' style off perfectly - frantic beats, deep punchy bassline and a well loved vocal sample make this a big crowd pleaser.

14: Stakka & K-Tee - Living For The Night [Liftin' Spirit]
Wicked Amen workout from one of the most under-rated labels of the time. Constantly overshadowed by its huge sister label, Ram, regulars Stakka & K-Tee bring a touch of melody here before they went on to bigger outings on their own labels.

15: The Family Foundation - Express Yourself (Ray Keith & Nookie '95 Remix) [Labello Blanco]
92's hit given the ubiquitous Ray Keith and Nookie remix for Labello. Long intro dropping into a wicked warp bass tearout. I always loved the way they cut up the vocal in this one on the second drop, brings back memories of this getting rinsed on pirate stations back in 1995.

16: The Outlaw - OG Call (ST Files & Kosh Remix) [Intalex]
The Intalex guys are obviously still going strong with their own blend of dubbed out dnb but their earlier releases often get forgotten. This is one of them, a nice rollin' number with a bassline jumping all over the place. Wicked stuff. "Everybody in the hood, up to no good"

17: Skool Of Hard Knocks - Kan Ya Feel It (Remix) [Grand Larceny]
The remix of the well known Biz Markie sampling original. Hip hop beats in the intro into the mellow pads then launching a massive Amen drop. The tell-tale guitar line rears its head from time to time but isn't there as much as it was in the original. I've never heard many people play this one which is a big shame!

18: A-Sides - Punks (Rewind Selector Mix) [Stricly Underground]
One of Strictly Underground's biggest releases and a wicked jump-up workout from one of the scene's most prolific artists (he's engineered more tunes than you'd realise). Sample taken from the much rinsed "How High" by Method Man & Redman and a P-Funk style synth line that gets instant recognition anytime this one's dropped.

19: 3 The Hardway - Smooth Operator [Dope Dragon]
Finishing with a tune that never really gets played. Back again with the Bristol lads and a wicked piece of jump up in their typical style. Loads of breaks switching in and out of this one with a big bouncy bassline after the Rakim sample. Guaranteed to get the crowd moving every time.

Does anyone know which Elevation set this track comes from? hard to find any Micky Finn 93 Elevations sets online.
