Dj Scud (Ambush Records) - "All Things Change 1997" mix

"Cells repeat the process of degeneration and regeneration…
All things change in a dynamic environment"
(Ghost in the Shell)

"...Bloody hell, I tinkered endlessly with this mix - mainly because it's getting harder and harder to be subjective (as I got more involved in my own productions and label that year) but there're quite a few interesting notes to be made.

Influential labels like PCP were starting to fade. Dance Ecstasy, who in their heyday back in '95 put out a staggering 20 or so releases that year, slowed down to only 6 in '97 (and then one final 12" in '98). Lost/Cold Rush put out their last release (included here) and Kotzaak only two. SNS also put out their last 12" (not sure if that 7" two years later really counts? hmmm) and even the momentum of Nu Black/No U-Turn/Techstep seemed to falter? as Ed Rush defected, hooked up with Optical, switched up his sound to 'nuerofunk' and went down the wormhole before the year was out (their first 12" coming out on Planet V). But Panacea was waiting in the wings and 'Shrillstep' was already mashing it down on the Hekate sound system; that and broken beat industrial/techno was the name of the game that year (with impressive runs of releases on the likes of Laurent Ho's Uncivilized World label etc).

CF in his Praxis Newsletter 12 (Aug 1997) talked about a "new era of nuclear fission of previously seperate or even opposed 'genres'…the impure…combining elements [to make] something heterogenous and new, an attack on the petrified and poor values of the past." 

It certainly felt like that at the time!

I'll stick my hand up and admit my most glaring omission: French speedcore (but no need to mention DHR heh). I didn't collect so much of it at the time - it wasn't really my cup-of-tea anyway, but there was big momentum and development there in '97 - Dead End etc, new labels like Widerstand and old hands like Fischkopf holding it down, with Hangars Liquides just about to burst onto the scene the following year.

Not sure it'll be feasible to do a '98 mix? The diaspora is possibly too great by then and tastes too diffuse? Any suggestions/lists let me know and maybe we can blather about it like true trainspotters. Enjoy!"

Dear Dan Doormouse,

YES. You are the creator of house musick and I'm happy you're back.  I imagine you still might dream of protein shakes & lifting mad weights. 
Nobody really wastes their time posting breakcore on dead music message boards on the internet, but hey, I still listen on occasion.  

Nifty new joints here. I must say.  Smile I get emotional amidst the chaos. July 2019 huh?
