hardcore classics

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. :)

Well I found the second one at last.
Dub 2 - Bad Man (Tuffness Mix):

The vocal might actually be 'feel so bad', which would make sense given the title.

Yes yes yes, my all-time favourite Belgian tune, can never get enough of this!
Horsepower is an absolutely devestating track too (that was by CJ Bolland under an alias, right?)

This seems an appropriate time to post the following (though perhaps most of the peope interested will have already heard it?) -

Top Buzz @ Fantazia, New Year's Eve 1991:
http://www.mediafire.com/?zojtilzj5nj

Tracklist:
New Atlantic - Yes To Satan (Bonus techno mix)
2 Bad Mice - Bombscare
DJ Seduction - You And Me
Heavyweight - The Way of the Future
Leo Anibaldi - Bassbar
Blame - Music Takes You (War mix)
Sound Corp - Dream Finder (remix)
One II One - Melodic EP Vol 1
Venom - Never Felt This Way Before
2 Bad Mice - Waremouse
Nebula II - Atheama
Hackney Hardcore - Dancehall Dangerous (version 1)
Mental Overdrive - Soma
Hackney Hardcore - Dancehall Dangerous (version 2)
Mental Overdrive - Electric Sunrise
Isotonik - Different Strokes
New Era - New Era
M-D-Emm - Get Down
Dave Charlesworth - The Energiser
Matrix Rise - Reality
Potential Bad Boy - Everyday Child
Matrix Rise - D.O.Y.L.E Factor
DJ SS - The E Face (Bassheavy mix)
2 Bad Mice - 2 Bad Mice (remix)
Band Of Gypsies - Take Me Higher (Higher mix)
Razor Boy and Mirror Man - Beyond Control

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. :D

i posted this in the top buzz thread a while back - it's one of my favourites and, as you say, recognised as one of the best. the copy i posted (the link is dead - i just checked) is a high quality version direct from the original DAT recording which i got from fantazia. it's on one of my hard drives and I will upload when i find it unless anyone else has it closer to hand?

unfortunately fantazia only started videoing their raves after this new years eve one - would of loved to have seen the crowd!

^^ 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.

Ha! Thank you :D

I got One Step Beyond. It's not bad, but I think I'd like the raw footage in order to hear what's going on rather than just getting video with tracks overdubbed.

Thanks continuum, just downloaded now, that's cracking. :D
Top Buzz have their own thread? Didn't realise, will take a look.

Edit: Ahhh nice, your version has the encore bit on it. 'WE ARE ABOUT TO TAKE LSD, WE ARE ABOUT TO TAKE LSD', lol.
