FP RMX




Foul Play remix of EZ Rollers's "Believe"




the textured drummige on that one! oooh gosh

an obscure one via Man like Droid



a classic one - staggering in both senses drums - true "rhythmic psychedelia" (copyright me, 1995)



one i always forget




another one i always forget (tasty too)



an epochal one



another epochal one

'

that epochal one, somehow surpassed





not forgetting their remixes of their own tunes

the unbelievable





another one is the "dub in u' remix which isn't on YouTube (it's listed up there but turns out to be the original "dubbing you")

"dub in U remix" one ended up on the Energy Flash CD owing to a cock up - good but not what i wanted (i wanted the original "Survival")

and finally

finally

the greatest piece of music of the 1990s in my humble opinion

lotsa competition, including from themselves and from people they remixed

but this is the One

ol' blue eyes

from a while back:  PEARSALL PRESENTS SURGICAL SOUNDS
                                a mix  in tribute to the great Doc Scott

(via Cardrossmaniac2)

still going strong apparently

as are most of the fellows upon whose every release I used to hang breathlessly, once upon a time - Andy C, Dillinja, Dego, Hype, Roni Size, Danny Breaks...

sometimes I ponder the fact that they have now carried on many times the length of time i originally paid rapt attention to their every move - which is more or less 1993 to 1997 - 5 years.

soldiering on... prospering, I hope

perhaps that makes me fickle (although five years is quite a sizeable chunk of time to be fixated on one zone of scenius, one phalanx of genius auteur-producers, wouldn't you agree?)

perhaps that means i'm just sharp enough to know when to leave a party before it gets stale

either way, big up this guy - and these guys's -- chest(s) for ever and always

this one in particular is one of the great artworks of the 20th Century, in my loopy little universe at least
