After a gap of 23 years, part 2 of this series arrives lol. I hope that part 3 will arrive with a smaller wait. But you know what? The wait was worth it because this album is fantastic. It features a lot of new talent, a few tracks from KFA artists, and a few tracks from original Kniteforce artists, and covers a wide range of speed and styles from 1991 - 1998. As I was putting this together, I found myself listening to it on rotation - the furiously dark Mannik remix of The Trip is a disturbance in the force, while Ant To Be demonstrates a lighter touch on a piano track. Empyreal brings the 1998 punch kick sound, and TNO throws a summer euphoria into the mix. Dj Deluxe returns with an absolutely storming track, and Alex Jungle shows why he was signed in the first place with his amazing gift to this album. Nicky Allen throws down classic 1994 style, and Bucksta bridges the gap between then and now. The Timespan returns after almost as long a rest as this album, with a deceptively simple remix for KFA stalwart Democre, and Audio X gives you hands in the air piano bizzness...that only leaves my remix of Saiyan & Cru-l-t’s “High Da Way”. This was previously an exclusive Executive Edition release on KFA - but it is also perhaps the best remix I had ever done, and so I broke my own rules, just this once, to include it on the album.
The bottom line is, I think you will like this. I think you will like it a lot. Its a proper old skool album, real hardcore for the real hardcore.
Please note this release is also available to buy direct from Kniteforce in the USA, so shipping will be cheaper over there if you are in America or Canada:
