    heres a few I just picked up :)

    I'm really loving the 91 sound at the moment!! gotta love that clean Belgium sound..... incredible.




    Absolute heavyweight tune.... the queasy synth make me feel like im on the deck of a moving ship.. used to hear this tune on the Crossbones soundsystem years ago.... glad I finally found out what it was.


    excellent record, both sides are awesome!

    great tunes on this thread, and as said, what an amazing year it was...this one was from 92, and doesnt quite have the same rawness,but used to sound ridiculous on big system/on acid:

    ...not complaining, just saying, but Lenny Dee and 'Mental Mayhem' aka Frankie Bones & Joey Beltram are all new yorkers, though definitely all these tunes had the euro sound.

    if i remember right in the Channel 4 doc about the History of House Joey talks about Joeys Riot and its reception in the States - it was like the birth of punk to the rest of the NY house scene - it was taken as so dark and brutal that JB was kind of excommunicated from the core NY scene, partly why R&S put out his stuff, as he ended up hanging out in Europe a lot more as a result.

    On a parallel I remember in 1993 when the hardcore/jungle scene started splitting over similar tunes - remember reading letters complaining about tunes like 31 seconds saying pretty much the same thing...too dark etc.

    I know, I was thinking that when I posted them.. but I consider them to have the sound of Euro, rather than a US sound and they were released on Belgian labels.

    Ive actually got a number of american friends who live in Europe who produce music now. They don't have a hope of being successful in the States but they do well in Europe.

    Personally i really like the NY sound from that era... Frankie Bones, Lenny Dee, Adam X etc.. it seems a lot more organic than the rigid Euro style. But the Euro style had the best sounds and production. I love both!

    i remember Beltram and Bones having a big bunfight on the discog forums a few years ago. bit of a letdown allround and it was very sad to see.
