Classic early jungle/harcore breakbeat tune! Wicked reggae dub intro and piercing stabs alongside a classic breakbeat. This was the BOMB!

What an amazing remix this is. Absolute classic ragga jungle from DJ SS. The production is top notch. One of the best jungle records of all time.

Wicked use of Mary J Blige on this. taken from her rather tasty 'My Life' album this is the intro to 'Be With You' Top tune in its own right. Also samples KRS ONE from the great soul tune by G Simone, Music For Da 90's.
Pascal P-Funk Era
Mary J Blige Be With You
Another classic. Vocals from Manchester singer Diane Charlamagne.
Goldie Presents Metalheads Inner City Life
One of jungle's biggest tunes. Stonecold classic this one is. Uses 'Madamoiselle' by Foxy for the male vocal bit and also uses Jill Francis' lyrics from 'Make Love To Me' for the female bits. Marvellous tune.
I liked this at the time. Samples Chuck D's vocals. This is the Urban Takeover Remix.
Natural Born Chillers Rock The Funky Beat
Another early jungle tune that left the hardcore path with it's cheesy speeded up pianos for something a little more refined and quality. Uses a nice vocal sample. Classic.
Omni Trio Feel (Feel Good)
What a record this is! Not sure if this is the correct label as mine was a white reissue, not being a huge jungle collector. Everything is just so good on here, the stabs, the bass, the beats. Proper classic from back in the day.
Q Project Champion Sound
LOVE all the soul samping jungle from the 1994 era. This was very simple and samples Stevie Wonder's BREATHTAKINGLY good tune Ribbon In The Sky.

Classic house from 1992-Typical production from this era. This was sampled and redone on a few occasions as far as I remember, there was a tasty early jungle remix of this as well. Features the industry standard early 90's rap bit as well...

Without a doubt one of rave/hardcore/early jungle/breakbeat's finest moments ever. The mighty Some Justice by Urban Shakedown and Micky Finn. This was massive. Uses Ce Ce Roger's vocals. What a TUNE. In case you're wondering where the breakbeat came from....Check out RUN DMC 'Run's House'
Urban Shakedown Some Justice
Wicked hardcore/breakbeat track from 1991. Uses a killer vocal sample from Ten City if I remember correctly?! Also the awesome piano from Richie Rich's You Used To Salsa, with a nice mellow breakbeat. CLASSIC.

This is such a great tune. Has 4/4 beats but not quite at the tempo of a house track. Nevertheless it's an absolute classic that seems to have been forgotten. Was pleased to see Dimitri From Paris include this on his 'In The House Of Love' album which is well worth buying. Classic!!
Black Box Fantasy
Not sure what category this goes into, apart from 'great tune' This just builds and builds using one layer after another. There is a nice sleazy sax sound in this that I like as well.. Needs to be listened to from start to finish..
Laurent Garnier The Man With The Red Face
Todd Terry's remake of the classic 'Weekend' by Class Action. I like the old skool beats on this one. The FPI Project samples the Class Action track in their classic 'Risky'
Todd Terry Project Weekend
Class Action Weekend (Jive) 1983
This one is my personal favourite from all the Italian piano house 12"s. Was also released on Disco Magic UK in 1994. The usual samples from Salsoul, namely Loleatta Holloway's fantastic 'Love Sensation' and a nice piano riff made this a wicked tune. Stonecold classic..
S Bam Take Me Away Now
Classic hip house from Tony Scott-That's How I'm Living. Typical samples and sounds from back in the day. On the other side we have another good tune called 'The Chief' Much more laid back with a slick mellow rap. Classic memories.
