Whilst in the UK back in 2001, I was fortunate to be invited to play on Eruption FM - 1 of London’s most established and respected undergound pirate radio stations, to give them a taste of how we did things at Gravity, Perth Australia
Props to Cris.E.Manic & Steve Uplift and especially to Slipmatt for putting me forward for the gig
There is something magical about blasting out hardcore across the airwares of London, from two turntables and a mixer at the top of an abandoned apartment block in the East End.
Ttradionatlly radio sets are hard to guage for me, as the audience isnt "visilbe", and I usually feed off the crowd, although Crisse & Steve's antics were top class, but what I was enlightened at the amount of calls and comments that flowing in from the UK Hardcore massive, and the amount of people that kept in contact or dropped me a line afterwards was a testament to the following the show had created.
This show was also braodcast live on the web, with listeners texting & calling in from Tokyo and further - hardcore heads world wide unite!
All in all lots of fun - hope you enjoy as much as I did, please subscribe if you want more and ill keep these coming
Note - this recording was ripped from the online stream and has been remastered for clarity and de-essed as much as possible - still not great but good enough for my old mate Beno, who I promised I would get this too a while back (Sorry Ben!)
That ERA of music had lots of different layers, although for me persaonlly I was influenced heavily by the heavier side Next Gen & Blatant Beats stables, obviously Scott Brown’s Evolution “suite”, and some of the more obscure stuff from Holland and the US (Omar Santana’s World Domination youtu.be/N7kpjzYhPg0) getting a drop towards the end too!)/
Featuring massive tracks Russ (Dair) did with Fade (Blatant/Next Gen, winners from, Robbie Long (Thin N Crispy) and also Devastate (Hechtech) and finishes with the collab I did with Hixxy prior to his 'Raver Baby' label being launched.
