The legend that is Ellis Dee needs little introduction, a staple part of the Hardcore era as a top billing DJ, and one-quarter of the seminal rave act Rhythm Section along with his groundbreaking solo releases. Roy's (Ellis Dee) contribution to starting, shaping and pushing the scene is integral to how we know it today. On a personal level, I've seen Roy DJ countless times and he was one of 4 DJs (along with Slipmatt, Ratty & Randall) I followed, admired and was inspired by since I first saw...
Like with my World Dance tribute show I hunted down all the track lists for each set, pooled all the tunes into a playlist and went to town on them for 2 hours!
Some great memories and tracks from that era, I hope you enjoy this as much as I did putting it together!

Was a great honour to host the first outing on the decks publicly for over 10 years for DJ Pooch and he did not disappoint!
Pooch powered through a killer selection from 92 onwards starting with Old Skool Hardcore into Jungle and back again, all on glorious vinyl & dub plates!
A show not to be missed!
All Vinyl Selection is this weeks show and one of the greatest years of Old Skool Hardcore: 1992
I've bought loads of tunes this last few months so time to get them all some love!
Also no mic, just the music!
Off in the time machine we go and back to 1993 with all all vinyl Old Skool Hardcore & Jungle show! Some of my favourites in here along side a few hidden gems, oh and the occasional new tune that fits right in! Enjoy!
I've been a fan of The Prodigy since first hearing 'Your Love', and seeing them live at the Astoria back in '91/92. I've still got a vivid memory of Keith & Leeroy on stage dancing around like nutters while I was up on the balcony with 'Out of Space' blasting through the speakers. I clearly remember looking around and seeing everyone going fucking crazy, tabling on tables and singing along with all their hearts.
The first time I met Keith was at a Breakbeat night at The End in the...
Went all in on this show researching the sets from all the DJs, building the tracks and playlist, grabbing samples of the mighty MC GQ from the tapes and even got DJ Hype, Slipmatt and Ellis Dee to send me an audio clip of their greatest memory from that night to play on the show! This is a must show for every World Dance fan!

I've spent the best part of the last 3 months hunting down what's going on for Hardcore & Jungle style beats and gotta say, there's A LOT! For someone that's not been inspired by new music of late, I'm finding that new music buzz again!
The first hour of the show is me hand selecting a few tracks from producers making some serious noise and the second hour I handed over to Pete Cannon, who quite frankly SMASHED IT! All his own productions and all made on an Amiga & Akai 950 - Proper old...
Suburban Base was one of those labels that just kept on giving to the scene, so I decided to showcase some of the highlights from 1991 to 96!

A lot of the shows I've done lately have been digging deep and finding those rare gems, for this show I decided to pull out the big guns and play all the old skool hardcore bangers - hands in the air singalong anthems that we all know and love!

This was the first ever mix Terry (Atomic Hooligan) and I did together and was recorded live on my then weekly radio show on GrooveTech radio (I think was one of the first internet radio stations?)
This mix was recorded back in July 2002 and really kick started our DJ partnership. Starting off as just 3 decks and 2 mixers, it grew to a 7 decks and FX show with MC Xander & MC Ziggy. We toured all over the place with one of our highlights being performing to 18'000 people in St...
This week I took a trip back to the year that Hardcore officially made it's mark; 1991. This is a very fond year for me, as it was the year I finally 'looked' old enough to get into raves, and in October 1991 me and a few mates went to Sterns in Worthing and never looked back!

Starting of the year with an all vinyl show, celebrating the best of 1994 Old Skool Hardcore! A lot of these tunes remind me of the sweaty days back at World Dance in Wembley and of course Dreamscape & Helter Skelter at the legendary Sanctuary club in Milton Keynes!
I don't normally do a track list for my vinyl shows but I'm making in a new year resolution to do them from now on! Head over to http://wearehardcore.uk/ to get the full track list.
