Chris Carter: ‘Moonshot/Earthbound' (TCR)

TCR's relentless assault continues. A classic in the making, quality beats and a tranced out sound this boy’s gonna be huge.

P.M.T: 'Gyromancer’ (Acetate Ltd) Fat totally fat, killer beats and one hellava subterranean bass line.

Silvio Ecomo: 'Standing' (Hooj)

This has been out for a while but it still rocks. General Midi gives it the breaks mix but I think you'll find the original wins every time.

i Wreckage Inc: '4 Track Promo LP

Sampler (Wreckage)

He's back and he’s bad. Huge powerful

' beats and some kickin' hooks frankly,

2 they don't get much better than this. Boogie Mo Dynamos 'Twrsted Disco’
