for hardcore turning into jungle you can't do better than sets from AWOL. watch for randall b2b kenny ken, AWOL @ Paradise, 1993. one of the best things ever put on tape ;)

Just wanted to belatedly say that Nomos def wasn't wrong about this. Totally hypnotic set, been rinsing it like mad for the last month or so.
I've also been finding DJ Hype's Yaman studio mixes really helpful for tracing that development of hardcore into jungle.
Hunting down rave/radio sets/tape packs etc is prob not a million miles away from Grateful Dead style fan exchange bizness, but tbh I don't, the music's just so great. :D

2nd the big up to Andy, between this & the 45 minutes of jungle mixes I'm pretty much set for the next month or so.

(also, I very much like "intelligent brostep"; it sounds like the absolute worst - by which I mean the absolute best - thing ever created)

Cheers guys.
Yeah I guess the subtitle is one of the better of my little music-geek jokes. My other favourite is to substitute 'wonky' for 'funky' in song titles, lyrics etc. Try it, it'll provide hours of fun.. er, or minutes of fun at least. ;)

If any of you research kids want to give it a shot, there is a track in here
http://www.io.com/~mkultra/audio/Zakaos_-_Return_of_the_Dark_Fader_Side_2.mp3
right at 18:00 that just kills me...the strings, the killer sped up vocals, just perfect...he's mixing into this downbeat lull into this squarepusher ting.

There are actually a couple of other unknowns earlier on, the two tracks after Dijeridoo and after Watermargin actually.

Hey adruu, nice mix and nice tune, but sadly I have no idea what the name of the tune is. :(
Might be worth asking one of the real mid-90s jungle experts like Droid, as most of the tunes on the mix seem to come from that era.

^^ No probs Franz, it's a pleasure to share this stuff, think Nomos deserves some of the thanks too though. :)

Been meaning to post this one for a few days, finally ID'd it after months of hunting around
3 Thieves & A Liar - Forseeing The Future:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUW4D-cpRWE

Yet another early stage in junglistic ideas creeping into ardcore. I get the impression that this was a big 'London tune' when it was first about. Either way it's fantastic.
