Is GQ not really annoying?? Here's a perfect example of acting "cool" as in that other thread. Really afraid to show any emotion, let any expression enter his voice. Compare him to Robbie D. Kinda sad that it's the GQ's that went on to dominate d'n'b mc'ing but I suppose it fits the music. There was just no crazyness left to accomodate the likes of Robbie D.

i dunno, i like gq personally. "absolutely t for tremendous"

theres an mc that really gets on my tits on some top buzz mixes i've got. don't know his name but hes got these really odd shouts like "rocking to the sound of the living concubine" and he adds "ah" to the end of every sentence like an 'ardkore mark e smith.

You talking about Mad P of Top Buzz. He is great! Well...he talks a bit much, but he is hillarious and totally incomprehensible.

Yeah I have to say I like GQ on these earlier sets. Sometimes he seems a little unsure of himself and it comes across in his voice. Compare that to the AWOL @ The Ministry CD or later tapes where he really starts to sound pompous and the routines are old hat.

HAHAHA. :rolleyes: Here I got all excited and it turns out I already have this one. One of the best recordings of anything, anywhere, ever, IMO. It gives me shivers.

ok - the tune i am looking for is around 31:40 mins on mix 1. it follows doc scott "nhs" and its a funky bongo-inflected jungle tune, with a vocal bit about half way through. really need to get hold of this. gq says something about "the hypnotist".

i was listening to this mix the other week mashed after coming back from a club and it does the trick in that kind of frame of mind.

Crazy. You can actually get "Hurt You So" as a ringtone: http://mobile.breakbeat.co.uk/oldskool-polyphonic-ringtones/tone.asp?code=942179.

I don't suppose anyone has any pics of AWOL events at Paradise? Or stories? I'd love to know more about the place.

Thanks. Yeah I've got SR's book and Martin James' Jungle - The Story So Far. Both are really vivid in their descriptions. I was hoping more people might have stories about their experiences there.

incredible, completely made my day. and yet i get the vague feeling i've heard it before, not as music but in a film or documentary, i could almost swear. can't place it though

can anyone id the track(s) that make up the first few minutes of part 4?

Up till about 1:20 it's Edge of Darkness - Come Together. This particular mix comes of a bootleg that includes a remix of Johhny L's "Hurt You So" that appears at the end of part 4. Both of the remixes are better than the originals. I have no idea about the acidy tune that follows it.

Martin James State of Bass - Jungle: The Story So Far Boxtree, 1997. ISBN 07522 23232

It's a pretty decent basic history, from 'Ardkore up to No U Turn and Bukem. It includes discographies and a short but helpful bibliography. Unfortunately, I think it's been out of print for some time. You might check abebooks.com.

Oh my God this mix is fucking tremendous. Thank you so much. Is there any music EVER that has been incredibly, consistently exciting as 'ardkore/darkcore/dnb from 1991-3?

This is probably a really obvious tune, so forgive me, but can someone ID the record playing at about 12 minutes in on the first part of the mix (gorgeous helium vocals, 'T for tremendous' as they say)? :p
