I did a mix of some of the previously unreleased bits that have made their way from dubplate to vinyl in recent years:

One of the side effects of this dubplate culture was, however, the fact that a lot of amazing tunes simply never came out. They were stuck on dubplate for many reasons – couldn’t fit into release schedules, artists and labels couldn’t reach a financial agreement, or the label owner(s) decided that the sound had simply moved on. Sometimes it was as simple as the original DAT being lost and no copies existing!

So for jungle fanatics, the years since 94/95 have been marked by the knowledge that there was a huge secondary catalogue of music that was only available to the public via low-quality recordings from raves and pirate radio. The advent of p2p file-sharing services and, especially, platforms like YouTube, Soundcloud, and Mixcloud meant that these missing tunes were more available than ever, but, tantalizingly, not in a format that you could mix with.
