Noisemonkey of Subvert Central has compiled a most excellent mix of pretty much all the STU releases by vintage label Lucky Spin.
Lucky Spin and it’s main offshoot Deejay Recordings were huge and pioneered what I can only describe as ‘Deep Space Jungle’, DJ Crystl in particular but also Orca (aka Decoder), Slipmaster J, DJ Trace and the Invisible Man all played a huge part, mostly with legendary engineer Pete Parsons on the desk.
STU was not necessarily the label name but it was a series of white labels put out by Lucky Spin without only the cat number of STU followed by the number itself, as you can see below some of these tracks do not have tune names, some are not even artist credited but that was part of the mystique in Jungle back in those days I guess.
