J.Bo Tape #19: DJ Easygroove - The Technodredd #9 - 1992 ***EXCLUSIVE***

The going is rough, it's gonna get rougher... run dis!

By
popular demand, here is another tape from everybody's favourite year in music - 1992. And after listening to this, it is once again easy to see why. Some of the proto-jungle riddims on this tape are just ridiculous... it is exciting to be posting this J.Bo Tape!

From the legend that is Easygroove, a DJ that everybody has a story about. From headlining all the biggest raves - Fantazia, Obsession, Dance Planet, Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, Raindance, The Eclipse... even getting the coveted midnight New Year's Eve set at these huge events - to the more recent rumours of prison and drug addiction.

But forget the negative and listen to his cutting edge mixes - f
amous for being the only DJ who could, or was brave enough, to mix all the different sounds into one set. Whether it was hardcore, jungle, techno, happy hardcore, ragga, soul, house, hip hop, he would play whatever felt right. Known for being able to dig out the most obscure of records and fit them into a mainstream set, the crowds never failed to respond.

Here we have a tape from his successful Technodredd series (this was possibly the last as I believe he moved onto CD releases soon after this with titles like Cyber-Techno-Dread!!!). Side A focussed on the newly emerging jungle techno breakbeat sound whereas Side B comes with a more experimental mix of flavas... but rest assured that the whole thing is big, hard and HEAVY...
