I'm sure I saw a Loopy video of some description once. I've blanked the links and everything from my mind, but obviously I still recall it, and it is there, somewhere, in the internetness.

You heard it here first.

As always, Ed really sticking his neck out.

Can't fault his powers though.

Liverpool's 1-4 win at O.T with Torres scoring will irritate him more than that Gerrard slip imo.


That's your opinion. And it is, IMO, way off the mark. I think Liverpool not winning the league comes a bit higher than one bad result. wink

Todays the day. Happy 20th Ren1. smile

Thanks to Uncle John for not closing the board, when, lets face it, he had every intention of doing so with pretty good reason.

I'd pay extra for the plummy accent and get him to quote Hamlet as he spent himself.

I'm sorry, but WTF are you guys talking about? Soaps??

Have a word.

RIP squire, but seriously.

I'm with Post Office BB here. Never fucked me about, and get unlimited D/L. Albeit a tad slower 5-24MB speed, for £23 a month, it does the job and usually stream stuff reasonably.

As a job perk, the BB is free... so it's actually £13 a month for line rental. Have a Chromecast to watch this and that on telly if needs be... or use a HDMI cable if other things need playing on the big screen. No issues here thanks... paying over £50 a month to me seems like muppetry in motion. IMHO. smile

In my OP I did request a couple of things.. as in 'Keep it nice, and keep it positive'. Not THAT hard is it?

And someone gets banned.

Well done guys, well done.

Disc 1 of NE1 is clearly far more chilled out and suitable for home listening/after parties, therefore whomever it was who postulated it 'bangs hard' is talking out of their hoop.

I've looked back on the thread, and cannot see this being mentioned/quoted at all. Smashy I think pointed this out, but didn't make it clear I think.

As said... be nice. smile

This thread is about Ren1. Northern Exposure will have its own one in a couple of years.

As said in OP, keep it nice guys. smile

Another note... I've probably spent the best part of at least £300 tracking down the tunes from it.. and still don't have all of them. A few are rare as chuff, or unreleased.

How many here though have tried to do some of the mixes... and how many done it live to an audience? If so, how did it go down?

Yup

Ren 1 was the first comp i ever bought, before that it was dodgy mixtapes from clothes shops, it showed me that house music didnt have to be cheesy chart crap and it was the main reason i switched from playing drum and bass in the first place

TBF I bought JDJ4 about a week or so before after going on a mad one in Bournemouth and a mate banging on about some bloke called 'Digweed' and his choice of tunes being 'on the right strasse', as Edward would say. Before that it was a comp called 'Club Together', which had some really great tunes on... and also some horrors.

Following on from Johns JDJ thread about that being 20 years old, then 19/09/14 is the date that THE Ren 1 was released.

This thread is for all things Ren1. Maybe tunes you thought from around the time that might have made the cut. Remixers who have gone the way of the dodo since. Stories such as those told by Geoff on the sleevenotes... anything really.

Keep it nice, and keep it positive! smile

I'll start with.. when I bought it (on first day release from HMV Manchester obv)... when I got home, I had never heard of pretty much all of the tracks, and thought it was shit! smile Trufax. The only ones that caught my ear on first listen were Grace - Not over yet, and 2 Bad mice - Bombscare. It took going out to some good proggy nights over the next few months at Home and the Hac to make me understand things...

The Grid - Swamp Thing

Was that the country and western type one or was that a different tune by The Grid?

It was the one with loads of Banjo goings on. Awful racket. Although on a certain night at the Academy in Manc in Sept 94 (on a tuesday night of all nights) with K-Klass and a few dj's like Sasha, Mike Pickering, Justin Robertson and Graeme Park and a fistful of nonsense, it sounded quite good! wink

Truth is most of us probably liked Doop for about a week (until it charted).... apart from me of course

I dont think i ever did, mind you stuff like Doop is the 90's equlivilant of the EDM sound now

Am trying to think about the house stuff they were playing in the 'ritzy' types clubs along with Doop back then. Tony Di Bart, JX, Texas Cowboys, Goodmen, Rollo Goes Camping, Let Me Show you. All pretty much classics now. Not so much the case with Doop smile

Summer of '94 at my local here was Tinman '18 strings' and Tin Tin Out 'The feeling'

There is a track by 'Herbie...' which is basically Doop.... but I'm sure I have a mix where Uncle John does indeed play Doop. I don't think he can hide from this one tbh.

This mix basically got me back into the proper clubs of the time rather than pony about. From hearing this mix, and the soon to be released Ren1.... I was in the Hac and Home for some proper prog! smile
