I'm in the Meal Deal
Ok folks, wonder if any of you could help with a couple of really great hardcore tunes that I've been trying and failing to ID for months since hearing them on radio sets? Don't have any direct audio, so you'll just have to go by my descriptions:
First tune, the main hook is a descending chime/bell melody which you can imagine being sampled from a horror movie theme, though I don't know if that's the case. It also used the 'do it now' sample, and the tune overall has a mix of darker and happier sections.
Second tune, has a diva sample which goes 'feels so nice' (or possibly 'feels so right', though I think it's the former) plus ragga-chat samples along the lines of 'you're going on like you're a badman' and 'shut your mouth before I cut you down', as well as some really big mentasm-ish stabs.
I suspect that the first tune in particular was pretty big at the time, although again I can't be sure. Any info much appreciated.

I know next to nothing about rave tapes, having only started to listen to them of late, but this is apparently one of the all-time top-rated ones. Anyway, it's incredibly intense throughout and I've been listening to it a stupid ammount. Sound quality is a bit dicey in places but overall not bad. MC is great.
^^ definitely a favourite. i've only ever had it at 128 kbps though so a re up of that copy from DAT would be lovely.
I ordered a Fantazia DVD a few years ago. I wouldn't mind getting one or two more, especially the 'raw footage' ones.
