^^^ thanks for reminding me of that abomination. Complete toss.
At least go full orchestra, not stand there with your headphones on and pipe in a fucking drum machine.
This doesn't appeal to those outside dance music, if anything I would hope it drives them away.

As for Creating Patterns, it's a bit of a non-event for me.
There's also something funny (well to me anyway) about what is essentially a rave outfit from NW London eventually re-arranging a 70s soul classic with full orchestra. Good for them.
Came by to post about Two Pages... but couldn't find an appropriate thread

will this do? Smile

Nice fred.
"9 by 9" is one of my faves.
I also enjoy the Nuyorican Soul remix.

Just fyi, offtopic slightly, the early hardcore RAM Records stuff is very early Manix / 4hero, and that got repressed recently on the 15x15 collectors edition.

What collectors edition is that?


I think 4 Hero were celebrating the Two Pages 20th anniversary, now come to think. Last year wasn't it. And couldn't find my copy to revisit.

Well I stumbled back on it last evening.

I meant it's got nothing to do with Two Pages, my friend Smile x I just meant as passing comment some of the earlier RAM hardcore (Andy C, Moving Fusion) crosses over with the sound of these type of artists.
Thinking 4hero > Aquasky > Reinforced Records > crossgenre continuums, going whichever place. They of course don't necessarily have to overlap, or lead anywhere. But there are similar sounds In there.
The type of old school jungle I am referring to is tracks like "Cool Down" by Andy C, and similar types of percussive rollidge on the disc. I more so mean the amen jungle, and the amen hardcore / chipmunk.

Of course it's arguable 4Hero and Alpha Omega and A Guy Called Gerald and Goldie at that had a very specific, "black music" sound back then, that sounded very organic, very ruff and very spontaneous.
But that was hardcore, wasn't it? I imagine most people could wager most hardcore sounds similar if it uses similar samples.
(Just trying to answer my own questions and doing a mass ramble in the process). Lol
Neither Two Pages, or Creating Patterns, are 'drum & bass' albums to be fair

I'm surprised Statto didn't like Creating Patterns, as when picking up the cd recently (Music & Video Exchange, Greenwich) I found it overall a much more cohesive listen than the first. But they're both definitely not drum & bass albums, in the way like Parallel Universe was.

Jacob's Optical Stairway appears to be the 'true' successor to that one, another I recently picked up, having overlooked for the last two decades...

My highlight from Creating Patterns >>>

classic thread Xyxthumbs Hahaha
Two Pages and Creating Patterns.
4 hero = geniuses

Two of my favourite and most listened to albums ever, of any genre

Lovesmilie Lovesmilie


Two pages is IMO a drum n bass based on album
Creating Patterns is more varied with a number of early broken beat type tunes
Play With The Changes is nearly as bad.

for example this...



completely wrecking a classic Stevie Wonder song

dreadful
just found this on wikipedia...

Quote:4hero's fourth album, Creating Patterns (2001), featured (...) a cover of Minnie Riperton's classic 1970s song "Les Fleurs" with Carina Andersson as the lead vocalist. The latter was featured in a Baileys TV commercial and series 4 of Top Gear (both in 2004).

I rest my case
