Very rarely, very very rarely, the users of Drum & Bass Arena forums (myself included) actually make themselves useful.
This time, B.D. aka Tim Reaper rallied the troops to come up with an all Splash / Juice Recordings mix, and within 48 hours, it was complete.
Dave M AKA Bwian AKA Brain Badonde AKA The Richest Man In Jungle, answered the call.
Splash Recordings was launched back in 1994 as a outlet for the work of Daz Ellis (Splash / Undercover Agent), Juice was launched the following year by brothers Darren and Jeff Hickey and Splash became a sister label to Juice. Production followed from Daz under his various aliases and along with Darren (M.T.S.), Embee and Facs. The label’s had a tough jungle sound, very much aimed at the dance floor. They remained prolific labels in the scene when they both stopped outputting material around 2001/2002.
Some personal highlights of mine include Borderclash (2001), Dub Plate Circles (1996) and Oh Gosh (1995), all on Juice coincidentally.
