Sparki Dee - The Oldskool Experience Album [Available For Free Download Now!!!!]

1/ Acid Rain.
2/ Rinse Out The Awesome Bells.
3/ What Is Techno.
4/ Hi Octane.
5/ Symmetry. 
6/ Liftin Spirits.
7/ Innocence.
8/ Tribute To Atlantis (Euphoric Wonderland).
9/ Liftin Spirits (KDV Mix).
10/ The End.
As Christmas nears and the TV and radio stations are clogged with festive cheese and ever present X-Factor predictability, Ramsgate based producer and DJ, Sparki Dee offers up the perfect remedy to ease the more discerning listener's ears. After building up a strong discography on labels including Kode 5 Recordings, Hardcore Lives, Azzuro Digital and our very own 'Strictly NuSkool Volume One' compilation, Sparki unleashes his first artist album, 'The Oldskool Experience' on December 17th. and proves to be a multi-genre spanning collection of techno, house, hardcore breaks, jungle and drum & bass tracks, all keeping the spirit of oldskool rave music well and truly alive.
Starting off with the mellow opener 'Acid Rain', a track which re-ignites the classic glory days of acid house and warehouse parties and 'Rinse Out The Awesome Bells', which borrows 2 classic elements from oldskool hardcore and early drum & bass to devastating nuskool effect.
Up next is 'What Is Techno' an uplifting and pumping techno tinged house track followed closely by a personal firm favourite, the aptly named 'Hi-Octane' which crosses a thumping kickdrum with crunching breaks and an infectiously euphoric stab melody.
'The Oldskool Experience' then steers towards a drum & bass direction with 'Symmetry' and 'Liftin Spirits', the latter of which pays tribute to the classic jungle label from the mid-nineties with it's fusion of breakneck beats, booming bassline and soaring strings. Up next is another hardcore breaks, piano slammer entitled 'Innocence', which can only be summed up as Adamski meets 1994 junglistic hardcore.
'Tribute To Atlantis (Euphoric Wonderland)' follows next paying homage to the 1993 Good Looking Records classic in bombastic style and is backed up by the 'KDV Mix' of 'Liftin Spirits' which adds a touch of hardcore flava to the original jungle mix.
Accurately named closing track, 'The End' starts off at a chilled downtempo breakbeat pace, before the BPM rockets off to a thundering pace with it's breakneck speed bass, thumping kicks and rolling breaks. An excellent blend of tempo-bending, uplifting happy hardcore/breakcore to round off a slickly produced and altogether, energetically euphoric album. Huge respects go out to Sparki Dee for releasing this beast of an album.

'The Oldskool Experience' album is be available as a free download from the Sparki Dee Bandcamp and Soundcloud pages linked below...

Tima-Old Dudes [HC Recordings]

You certainly don't need to be a 'old dude' to appreciate this uplifting breakbeat hardcore/DnB track by Tima, theres plenty of reach for the lazers riffs, smiley pianos and ravey vox plus a nice heavy 2 stepping beat and subs to round off things nicely, a track to rave to, a track to crank up nice and loud, get on this!!!


[KFA61] Luna-C - A Whirlwind Of WHAT? (Executive Edition) [OUT NOW ON KNITFORCE AGAIN]

1/ Back'n'Back (Luna-C Version).
2/ Because Im Fucking Angry.
3/ Emus In The Asylum.
4/ Fly To Heaven.
Executive Edition Tracks
5/ Take Me Away (Haze Remix).
6/ Back'n'Back (Public Version).
After a 2 year break from producing hardcore music to pursue a folk-rock music project as Reeve, Kniteforce label owner, Chris 'Luna-C' Howell steps back into the rave arena with his long awaited comeback EP 'A Whirlwind Of WHAT? (Executive Edition)'.
Featuring 6 brand new, upfront breakbeat hardcore tracks, 'Back'n'Back (Luna-C Version)' opens up in manic, sampleadelic fashion, merging oldskool hip-hop vox (Eric B & Rakim, Public Enemy, etc) and a plethora of eclectic samples with rolling breaks, pounding bass and euphoric synths to awesomely chaotic effect.
Luna-C takes things of into moodier territory with the aggressive 'Because I'm Fucking Angry' which is propelled with a pounding 4/4 kickdrum, gnarly, growling bass and accentuated with smatterings of breaks along with some seriously pissed off vocals. 'Emus In The Asylum' follows suit and comes in with horror movie samples, raucious guitars, monolithic riffs and an inexplicable focus on 'Emus'! Oh yeah, can't forget the little borrow from The Prodigy also.
Highlight of the EP for me is the astoundingly feelgood 'Fly To Heaven' with it's simply gorgeous pianos, luscious female vocals battling it out with rolling amen breaks and boombastic bass. If ever there was a track that could champion the cause of happy D&B, this would be it!
Included only in the for a limited time only Executive Edition version is the energetic reworking of the Kniteforce Records classic 'Take Me Away' by label newcomer, Haze, who takes the soaringly euphoric happy hardcore original into pounding hard trance territory, with devastating results. Closing off the EP is the 'Public Mix' of 'Back'n'Back', which in Luna-C's own words is the more "normal" version, with less samples than the more traditional Luna-C, eclectic version.
A welcome return to one of hardcore's founding artists and a sure sign that Luna-C and the Kniteforce brand will continue to carry the flag for all forms of hardcore music.
The Luna-C 'A Whirlwind Of WHAT?' EP is available to download as a 6-Track Executive Edition for 4 weeks only, before tracks 4 & 6 are deleted from sale. So get in there early to avoid missing out. It available for a $6.50 (or £4.15 UK money!), just follow the link below. You know it makes sense!!!
