Cleared out all the ID'd clips from the unknowns section, still plenty left un-named though! Also updated the tape listings with new IDs and corrected the links for the ones still needed.


Guestbook added. Feel free to leave any requests/IDs/feedback about the site.


Managed to track down another one of my favorites sets (thanks badboy), so DJ Ratty from Obsession 3rd Dimension has been added to the mixes section along with another classic Top Buzz set, this time from the unforgetable Fantazia Summertime. I've also added flyers for all the mixes where possible. If you encounter any problems navigating the site please let me know, just switched server and I haven't had time to check all the links.


More classic Top Buzz bizbiz...Two Blacks & A Bubble Part II added to the mixes section.


...and another mix added to the mixes section. This time a 93/94 darkside I put together. This mix cost me my copy of 2 Bad Mice - Underworld. Got attacked by my cats cause I wouldn't feed 'em cause I was mixing...jumped up, knocked the ashtray off the shelf (which I caught!) and sent my sp**f flying across the decks....you wanna see the bl*m burn mate...and it fked up the mix...


Added another one of my favorite sets, Top Buzz from New Age @ The Eclipse from 1991...Mad P on top form!!


Respect to Abstract? who came up with the track listing for the Hype Yaman tape within 2 hours of posting the mix!! Nice one!!


Added one of the DJ Hype Yaman Studio
Tapes from 1993 to the mixes section, trademark scratch-a-thon from the master!


Archive updated with a browser for easier navigation.


Two new mixes added. Wicked sets from Universe Mind, Body & Soul. Need some help with the tracklist for Simon "Bassline" Smith though please! The Stu Allen set is one of my favorites, and I'll be adding the filthy Tanith set next week! Updated the Shop, more tunes for sale/trade, more wants!!


Hope you like the new layout!! If you're using a modem and are having problems with the site please let me know, I use Broadband so I'm not sure if download times will be affected by the update.


Another huge update to the Archive. 37 new tunes added featuring tracks from DJ SS, FBD Project, Tango, Cloud 9, Structural Damage, Freestyle & DJR, early Homegrown releases and many more! Total tunes now up to 309!
Full Archive Listing added to make navigation easier. Wants lists at the ready!


83 more tunes for sale/trade. I've also updated my wants list.


2 more mixes added, no Top Buzz this time though. Classic Grooverider and DJ Seduction sets!


2 new mixes added. The classic Two Blacks & A Bubble Part 1, and one of my own old skool studio tapes.


Top Buzz - Dance Planet (The Detonator) added to the mixes section.


New mixes section added! Listen to the classic Top Buzz set from Fantazia NYE 91, or a live 94 set from me! Loads more to come!!


I've cleaned up the unknowns section as I've picked up a few quality IDs this week..cheers Leo, DJ Destiny, Erik Kramer and Chris Rack... a few more tunes added to my wants list too. Should have the first of many mixes online in a couple of days, starting with a tape I found of me DJing at Shockwave in Cardiff back in '94!!


1993 Archive is sorted, with another 9 tunes added for good measure! 272 tunes so far ;-)


3 new Top Buzz sets added to the Tape Listings, and some new Unknowns.


Alrighty!! 1992 Archive is now working. Also updated with another 18 full length choons!! That's 116 in that section alone!! The rest should be working in a few days. I'll be starting a Featured section too, starting off with Top Buzz (no suprises!), Basement Records, Legend and Moving Shadow.


Critical Breaks & Ascension return to see in the new year with their first event of 2003 on Friday 7th February at the Emporium, High Street, Cardiff. The very best in Drum and Bass, Jungle and Oldskool Hardcore. Guesting for this event sees Urban Takeover's Aphrodite touch down for a two hour set. Check out the flyer/back


Sorted out the bandwidth problems so the Archive is back up and running. 1991 section is the first to be updated, 9 new tunes and streaming audio.


Unknowns updated - all clips are now available as streaming audio, and I've added another 14 unknowns. Creating RAM files for the Archive is a right pain in the arse but I've completed 1991 and should it be available in a few days.


I've found a new home for The Archive, but it means transferring 230 files from one server to another so it could be a week before it's ready. I'll also update it to include the option to stream the tunes as well as download.


The Arcive is temporarily unavailable due to Bandwith limitations. It's only been up and running for 2 weeks and I've already exceeded 3Gb in downloads!! This is obviously the most popular section so please bear with me. I will be upgrading my account to allow for the increased traffic.


Basement, Legend, Moving Shadow and Top Buzz added to Featured artists/labels.


Tape Listings are up-to-date, as are the Unknowns. Still working on the Flyers section, should be ready in a couple of weeks. The Links page is looking a bit sparse though. If you'd like your site to get a mention drop me an email with the details.


Finally finished the Archive! Now fully updated, featuring 233 classic hardcore tunage from back in the day. Keep coming back cause Iím updating every month.
