old skool for da raverz....

Almost forgot that this tune was THAT good.

Falcon Falcon Falcon

Damn, what a tune:
I'm sure I've heard it somewhere before, probably in some set from back in the day. Or that vocal sample was also used somewhere else.

One of the best from Criminal Minds, still full of energy after 25 years since release Falcon


Old Don FM favourite... Well, at least it was on one of a few Don FM tapes i managed to re-record from somebody somehow. London massive! Falcon

According to the guy who uploaded it (and who I am subscribed to) this is an unreleased dubplate mix of Warpdrive. Actually, not fundamentally different than the original, some bits are looped a few times more than the official release (at least that's my impression) which makes this version a bit longer

""... Rave Culture that was birthed in the U.K. in 1988/1989 spread across Europe and The United States like wildfire in the early 1990's.  

What fueled the UK scene came from American Dance Music.  It was totally based on music coming out of Chicago, Detroit & New York City.  When I arrived to the U.K. to DJ in 1989, American DJ's did not play shows there.  

I got lucky due to a bunch of records I made called "Bonesbreaks".  They were popular in their scene and their scene is what the blueprint of rave was.  It wasn't supposed to happen in the United States.

I was a regular on the U.K. circuit.  When it reached Scotland, Streetrave was the largest event and after playing for Ricky Magowan several times, I asked him if I could use their imprint for the U.S. upstart.  

But it wasn't until my first tour of Los Angeles which proved "raving" was going to explode in America.  UK DJ's were starting to play out in California and I learned how they broke into warehouses and used that concept to create STORMrave.

We had to export the U.K. scene back into America and the rave mantra PLUR started off as the mantra for why we were doing STORMrave in the first place.

Keep in mind that the music already had star producers making tracks in NYC.  There wasn't a  scene to go along with that in NYC.  Club owners wouldn't let more then one DJ play per night but we changed that.

We wrote the blueprint.  And as it began, The American scene played mostly British music in 1991.

Most of the music as single tracks don't hold weight on their own.  But when mixed in a DJ set, the magic comes back right away.  That is what you hear, here..."

"...DECEMBER 13, 1989 - What is interesting about the night in question wasn't the actual event, but the fact that it was Lenny Dee's first time to the U.K. and Carl Cox had us over his house to show us his new recording studio. This had been my fourth tour to the U.K. In 3 months and 20 days. Lenny & I had got Carl a copy of Success-N-Effect on 12" which by that point, the most sort after 12" from me caning it every show.

Carl was ready to start producing but joked about how he needed to get his head around all the gear he purchased. This is when I told him, "all you got to do is take this record, Success-N-Effect, ride a couple of new sounds over it and press white labels! Stamp your name on it.

A moment in time that changed everything. It was only weeks after that, that Carl produced "I Want You (Forever) for Perfecto.

He instantly returned the favor.

"It's All Gone Pete Tong" - Remember the movie. Carl was in it. The fictional character FRANKIE WILDE? Scroll down the Discogs link. Read the credits to my track - Frankie Bones & Damon Wild - It says it right there. He combined our names. Why? He had beef with Oakenfold or competition.

Tong ran to Mixmag and did a story "Hardcore DJ's are killing the rave scene." Should go back to soul & rare groove. That backfired hard. 'It's All Gone Pete Tong" U.K. slang for "It's All Gone Wrong". LOL. You can't make this sh*t up..."

"... The original "Someday" was adopted in the U.K. Rave Scene and changed into a warehouse anthem by Liquid.  It was an early U.K. breaks track on XL Recording.  By 1993, DJ Hype took that Liquid track and turned it into what would become Drum & Bass.  Faster and harder.  By the time it came home to America, it was stripped and re-edited taking 30 BPM's off of it to 130.5 BPM's.  And this was the version the kids here in our scene first heard..."     - Frankie Bones, July 2017


"..THE WINSTONS - "Amen, Brother" being the six second drum sample from the 1969 recording as the most sampled break of all time.  Success-N-Effect being the third generation sample from the 1989 recording which brought the template to what would become Drum & Bass and the story untold.  And the fourth & fifth generation of that sample which came from Bonesbreaks 5 & the Carl Cox white label "Let The Bass Kick".

20 years later in 2009 a mysterious U.K. white label turns up, mutated and dirty.  This is what the Amen Break has become.  A staple foundation in breakbeat culture.  Sliced, diced.  While I have yet to find the actual source of this recording, I am preparing a "breaks" set for 30 years of Bonesbreaks, and it will dig a little deeper into breakbeat culture.  For now this is just one example of something untapped.  How far the sound has come even in 2009.  The stuff in the past 10 years is even more twisted.  But it is a taste.  One far away from what anyone would expect here & now..."
