What a complete tosser. That's completely insulting to a lot of artists from around that time. There were plenty of people hitting the mark around that time (e.g Orbit1, A.B, Fracus, Darwin, CLSM)

Just further backs up what a small, highly political scene Hardcore was, and most likely still is today. I wonder if the scene would look any different if some of the top tier supported some of the up and comers with things like production, and getting them on line ups.



Yeah I thought the same when I listened to that episode. The top tier of the scene has always been about jobs for the boys. Its not what you know its who you know. Klubfiller is a perfect example of someone who was quite shit at producing and dj?ing but got all the top bookings because of his connections.




Could add DJ Kurt & VAGABOND who were hitting the mark then



Vagabond most definitely, that guy was the most under-rated producer I'd say at the time.

Never saw much of his name on the line ups then. Shame really, really talented guy.

I've no idea how Hixxy had a hand in anything tbh politically or otherwise, can't fault him really for making such a big thing as Raverbaby and Bonkers. But back in the day he wasn't as popular like the others.

I didn?t think vagabond was a DJ. He just produced and said this himself. I?m sure Years ago I heard this could be wrong though.

Bloody awesome producer though.

VAGABOND fell out very quickly if you ask me. I loved his early run on NG/BB, but I didn't feel his later stuff. And especially not on the Candy Crush Music label.

Who, thumpa? :P
A Good DJ? yes, but as he has proven himself, a massive ego complex.

Well I didn't hear a great deal on Candy Crush, but Spacemist was one of my favourite tracks ever. I still listen to it now.

I found his stuff with dowster a bit like marmite. Couldn't stand some of it but they made some great tracks.

Candy Crush was definitely a mixed bag but there are some really good ones. Changing, Never Go Away, Paradise, and Am I Dreaming are a few of my favorites among others

Such a *drastic* change in style and production I assumed he had switched engineers.
