Tykal's Vinyl Rips - April 7th, 2009
In the latest installment from my dust-caked shelves, we start with a 97 german ragga tune that kicks off with a bong rip, then we move into 98 with a very strange experimental french jungle tune made in honor of the crisis in kosovo, then we have ms. nikki c with some 95 hiphop amen ruffness, then my favorite secret squirrel tune which is one hell of atmospheric unfurling, then a groovy 92 hardcore ragga tune by sector 5, then a little more atmospheric 96 jungle to round out part one. don't let the later years deceive you - the amen was alive and well even then.
For part two we have two early tunes from L Double of Flex Records fame and two of the hardest tunes Subject 13 ever made, on the first release of the label Vibez. For those familiar with Subject 13's later floaty dnb work, you're in for a surprise.
For part three we have a full rip from one of my jungle idols, and the only release from the label Armshouse Crew I've never seen available anywhere. I would say more, but this guy doesn't need any hype.
