Nookie-MixNookie aka Cloud 9, in my opinion, is one of the real unsung heroes of drum and bass today in 2012.
Starting from 1991 he is behind countless anthems, whether he was creating energetic and happy hardcore tracks or carving deep drum and bass masterpieces for Moving Shadow under his Cloud 9 moniker – his name was synonymous with the hardcore and jungle scene.
He also collaborated with Ray Keith throughout the 90’s and was often engineer for some of Ray’s biggest tracks such as Terrorist and Dark Soldier. Together they are responsible for some of the biggest remixes of the time.

He launched his own shop and label called Daddy Armshouse in Hitchin, Herts (next town over from where I’m at) and the record shop remained under the names Tygerstyle and Unknown Zone up until the mid 2000’s.

Nookie continued through the late 90’s releasing his own brand of deep drum and bass for Good Looking records before launching his own imprint Phuzion – You can now get mp3 copies of all his classics through Phuzion recordings.

On a complete whim yesterday I knocked up an all Nookie mix for the years he was probably at his most prolific; 92-94.
Featuring a whole heap of aliases across several labels it was completely unplanned and as such the mixing isn’t my best work but as always with Drumtrip its all about the tunes.

    Yah!

    Spellbound wasn’t a bootleg, it was official by the old Vinyl Connection label guys..

  • Ah right. I assumed it was a bootleg as it was a tiny white label run and it has that Twin Peaks sample in it. Good to know. Thanks
