SL2 'THE SL2 EP' [World of Rave]


The legendary SL2 driven by frontman Slipmatt return even if they are 'remastered'
SL2 was originally a collab of Slipmatt, Lime and rap vocalist Jason "Jay-J" James and the name came from the founders initials. S from Slipmatt and L from Lime, and SL2 the duet!

Of course none of us can forget classic SL2 anthems like "DJ's Take Control" which became a number 11 hit in the UK charts or '92 "On A Ragga Tip" peaked number 2 and achieved sitting 11 weeks in the UK charts, and ''Way In My Brain'' which came later that year. Big XL recordings tracks, proper oldskool dancefloor gems, which are now remastered along with '91 Awesome Records track 'The Noise' giving a new clear and digital sound to the masses who were raised with these big anthems!

Show your support and love and grab them to feel yourself like in ...1992

LUNA-C Reviews GL0WKiD





Last week, LUNA-C set up a #lunaclistens post on facebook where he's listening & reviewing the music from the first person who responds on this Monday's post with any track/podcast/radioshow. So this week he reviewed myself (GL0WKiD) after listening to my guest mix on Kushti's SolidSound radioshow (broadcasted on 22nd July 2015 @ Dublin South FM 93.9)

Regarding LUNA-C's review about my guest mix, I gotta admit that its definetely more than pleasure to receive such a great feedback from an established hardcore member like him. Feel glad we are having a good connection and of course its a kind of duty for all oldskool fans to support Kniteforce Records/KFA as the label is still busy in the hardcore game, remaining strong and releasing a large dose of stuff!


So here's a part of his review:

'' Having heard GL0WKiD before (he gave me a set for the Kniteforce podcast, Podcast 44 – go check it out), and having been in contact with him a number of times, the show definitely lived up to expectations. The last time I listened to one of his mixes I was surprised and happy to hear a large variety of hardcore tracks that were both breakbeat and modern and seemed to exist in a world of their own. It was fantastic, and this mix is more of the same, so it couldn’t be better really. GL0WKiD is a great Dj and all the mixes are tight enough that I sometimes couldn’t detect them. This mix showcases a different style of hardcore, one we could do with more of in my humble opinion, plus it is a very good interview with GL0WKiD. In the modern day, we all tend to message each other and often get straight to the point. So even though I have messaged with GL0WKiD before, and he has of course reviewed / posted about my music, there was a lot for me to learn about this Athens based Dj. ''



You can check out his full  review (featuring a link with GL0WKiD's guest mix + interview) as posted on KF website here: http://www.kniteforcerevolution.com/posts/luna-c-reviews-01-gl0wkid-mix/
