Tune Of The Day Archive

TOTD: Sound Station – Sound Station

This is a guest post from Snakey. After his last ode to Danny Breaks – Droppin’ Science Vol 1, he returns to dig out a lost gem from the Suburban Base archives. The casual steppy intro of this oft overlooked Suburban Base monster does little to reveal what’s coming after the breakdown. Similar in style

Fokus – Jazzed Out

Today’s “Tune Of The Day” is a guest post by regular reader Daniel Norman who picks out an slept-on track by an underrated producer in Fokus’ “Jazzed Out”. A great record from a golden era.

Norty But Nice – Give It To Me Baby

*Disclaimer* I’m not a happy hardcore fan. Once it hit 95′ and it all went very fast, very 4-4 and all just a bit mad; it really wasn’t for me. However, go back to 1992, just before darkcore took over, and I am a huge fan of happy sounding, piano led tracks. And when I
