Dj Faydz: "Here's a 1990 - 1991 mix I put together in 2015, celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Old Skool House & Rave event, Ektos. If you didn't know, Ektos put on some huge events around the South West of England back in the early 90s, bringing Moby over for his first ever UK performance in September 1991, as well as holding a regular night at Hardings Nightclub in Swindon. I had my first gig for them in 1999 and have been their resident DJ since then. This is a selection of some of the underground tunes, that will always remind me of Ektos and featured on a couple of the first ever Rave cassette tapes I got hold of way back in 1990, that were being shared amongst friends in my home town, mixed by former Ektos DJ's Gregan Scott (RIP) and Steve Potter. I'm very honoured to have played at this event for the past 17 years (Big thanks to Midge for having me!) and I hope this mix brings back a few memories and you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together! Cheers, Faydz x"

those are just five of countless rave tunes featuring diva samplige sourced mostly in the middle extemporising section of "let no man put asunder"
bigging up Rochelle Fleming and/or Annette Guest for ever
and here's a footwork tune also using a First Choice / 'Asunder' lick

deep tech made by John Morrow of Foul Play vintage
and quite nice too
(via dissensus / sadmanbarty)
another tune by Skeleton Army (sounds very gloomcore / PCP-ColdRush-DE2001, that name)
this one quite bleepy-and-bassy
in all honesty I had forgotten deep tech existed...
