Re-Re-wind



Ahhh 97. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was working in the neon lit multiscreen nightmare of HMV, whiling away the hours flicking through import Hip Hop cds that I couldn't afford..Out of the blue speed garage mixes started flying off the racks. The saturday shoppers got hammered with it. I thought the majority of tunes were pretty bit dull but some of them like Double 99's Ripgroove & Todd Edwards bumping edits were UKG bassline classics that still sound fresh. Back then Wiley was a mere garage MC with the glint of grime in his eye - going from this to this.

So who'd a thought Sinden & Count of Monte Cristal's new stuff is going more and more down the champagne/No trainers route ? Good thing is they've taken the choppy London beats, carnival sized basslines and timestretch vocals instead of the shiney shirt slickness. Nice work bolly crew.
