ARTIST: VARIOUSTITLE: WE’RE STILL NOT DEADFORMAT: CD ALBUM (Unmixed)LABEL: WAREHOUSE WAXCATALOGUE: WAXLPCD002RELEASE DATE: APRIL 26th
Back in 2005 a compilation album called “We’re not Dead” was released on spearheading label, Warehouse Wax. It is now widely regarded as being a milestone in the rise of the genre known as Hardcore Breaks and received rave reviews in DJ Mag, Mixmag and Knowledge amongst others. It brought together some legendary names from the Old Skool UK hardcore scene like Nebula 2, Phuture Assassin, Austin, Orca and Sub Love. It fused them with enthusiastic new artists like Vinyl Junkie, Whizzkick, Darkus, D’state and Storm & Euphony and vowed that its mission was to reinstate the sound of 1992 hardcore to its former glory.2010, five years down the line and with the genre still going strong and untold amounts of young enthusiastic artists bashing away in their bedroom studios, Warehouse Wax thought it was time for a sequel. So here it is: WE’RE STILL NOT DEAD. Nebula 2 are back with the awesome “Kin Hardcore” which is dedicated to the London event of the same name, Austin also returns with the brilliantly moody “Suicide” and Phuture Assassin has been remixed and brought into 2010 by the hugely talented J-Tek supremo, Madcap. Also brought out of retirement for this project, one of the men behind the 92–93 Hardcore label: “Flyte Records”, Boykz.Early Drum & Bass legend, of Urban Takeover fame, the man like Mulder, makes his first appearance on Warehouse Wax with the brilliant J-Tek / Hardcore Breaks crossover “Code Blue”. Also gracing Warehouse Wax for the first time, a geezer who has been there from day dot and has now really established his own sound and a massive underground following, the hugely talented Simon Holmes.Owner of Warehouse Wax, Vinyl Junkie and Germanys main men, Whizzkick are both back in the place, each of them showcasing their own particular brand of Hardcore Breaks superbly.
