During my formative years I loved the UK Hardcore / rave / D&B scene and my favourite label was Formation Records from Leicester. Their output (certainly in their early years) was pretty consistently brilliant and I lapped up every release with relish. Every track was heavy on the bass, drum programming was similar throughout but the cheeky use of samples was captivating. As such, one of my first 'decent' mixes was this...crafted entirely from Formation Records releases. No dodgy attempts at scratching, no effects applied...just simple beatmixing. It was originally recorded (in the late 90's - possibly even 2000/2001) on cassette, then transferred to minidisc and now digitised!
Enjoy...and rave safe!
