I first met Ben Westbeech (BrEaCh) at a dinner in London. He was sitting across from me and I found out he made "Fatherless" a year ago which interested me right away. We got to chatting and the conversation took an unexpected turn and i heard the following story. As a kid BrEaCh grew up in Hertford, north of London, where early UK rave pioneers like Omni Trio and 2 Bad Mice where from. His Dad was friends with 2 Bad Mice and was surrounded by musicians and DJs. 2 Bad Mice had a friend called Paul, aka DJ Cra$Y. He used to make tunes back in the early rave days but sadly did too many pills and went mad. When Paul was taken into mental care his old dat format tapes got left at BrEaCh's Dads house. 20 years later, BrEaCh found them in the garage in and old box marked "music." He started listening through and found some cool old jungle vibes going on. The tracks 'Just - E' and 'I Need You' are remixes of two of the tracks found on the old DJ Cra$Y recording sessions
These are a rare hybrid crossover records between jungle and house and they are massive. So peace to Dj Cra$y wherever you are and respect to BrEaCh for putting these together.
