Happiness Forever - HUH!?




So, I was listening to this offering by the lovely William Rage (aka Nervous Corps, member of Blue Sabbath Black Cheer and occasionally Nihilist Assault Group etc). Superficially, a procession of cut-up noise ... then I thought "hang on a minute, I know what that is" and that sent me down an unintended rabbit hole.

So, here's the double C10 set from his own !MONDO ANTHEM! in 2019 that came in an edition of ten.

huh



Archetypal drum and bass courtesy of DJ Zinc that includes samples from "How High" by Method Man & Redman and Wu Tang's "7th Chamber" as well as the Cutty Ranks bed.

12" released on Frontline Records in 1995.

Dope Skillz - 6 Million Ways / Yo' Son



Prior to that there is this joyous bit of hardcore / jungle ...

12" released on RAM Records in 1993.

Uncle 22 & Navigator - 6 Million Ways To Die - Choose One (DJ Hype & Uncle 22 Remixes)



... and this classic slice of dancehall is where it started.

A 12" released on Roof International in 1992.

A Who Seh Me Dun



Two versions later appeared on this album that is more in the ragga / thug stylee which, I suppose, has it's own charm.

That's Me Dun
