Kniteforce Records – The Remix’s 11 & 12


KF68 – The Remixes Part 11 Limited Edition 12″ Vinyl

Original oldskool imprint Kniteforce continues its series of fresh and exclusive new releases with two new LTD edition vinyl releases featuring new remixes of label classics from an array of bright new talent and some true oldskool originals. We start with KF68 – The Remixes Part 11

2 Croozin’-Code Red (Fat Controller Remix) 

The DJ/producer behind one of the greatest oldskool anthems ever (In Complete Darkness) remixes ‘Code Red’ keeping things close to the original while adding in aspects of current DnB and Jungle production. The all important piano shines even more on this classy update with plenty of crunching Ray Keith style amen breaks

Alk E D-Shining Bright (JePh Remix)

JePH fuels up the steam engine for a frantic and lively underground Ragga Jungle remix of ‘Shining Bright’ Amazing drum programming really carries this remix along nicely as do the variety of cool samples from the horns to the spinbacks and potent shots of room filling bass.

DJ Poosie-It’s Gonna Be (Justin Time Remix)

The artist behind stone cold yesteryear rave gems like ‘Sweet In Pocket’ remixes DJ Poosie ‘It’s Gonna Be Alright’ in the Hardcore style that was once a staple of the Netherlands and the North of England plus the whole of Scotland. Hard bouncy kicks (bit like Bouncy techno) and Elstak influenced pads, some amazing piano playing and House/R&B vocals, the seemingly unlikely combination that in actual fact works incredibly well. This is the sound of all night raves like Vibealite personified.

DJ Force & The Evolution-High On Life (Saiyan & Cru-l-t Remix)

Saiyan & Cru-l-t rework ‘High On Life’ into a 96′ Happy Hardcore stomper with nice Euro keys, classic kicks and cut up amens sounding rather like Force & Styles circa 96. We get some additional vocals that remind us of the nod to a well-known Scottish rave act in ‘High On Life’ and a cool midsection with fun key changes. This writer used to love Happy Hardcore and this remix reminds him why he did.



KF69 – The Remixes Part 12 Limited Edition 12″ Vinyl

Part 11 was pretty darn special huh? Well, brace yourself for KF69 – The Remixes Part 12

DJ Luna C-Free As The Sky (Hyper On Experience Remix)

You read that right, none other than Hyper On Experience on the remix of this Luna C tune and that is something to get seriously hyped about. In essence, this is a continuation of the original pioneering HOE sound from back in 1992 in the purest form. Once upon a time guys like these made sounds like this on difficult to use hardware, no DAWs like the ones available today. That Henry Rollins bloke ought to sit in the studio and watch these guys go then see if he wants to rant about pushing buttons. Forgive my gushing but I am so immensely happy to hear these guys make music again especially when its as good as this!!!!

Cru L T-Snow In Summer (Alex Jungle Remix)

Right, ahem, so Alex Jungle remixes  Snow In Summer in breakcore meets 93 hardcore fashion and it’s just something else!!!! How about those busy Belgian stabs, dominator/mentasm riffs, little splashes of 8 bit/chiptune and dreamy 70s pop music vocals and quirky samples? Perfect mayhem!!!

Richie Whizz-Song Of Angels (Shadowplay Remix) 

Shadowplay complete Part 12 with a remix of Song Of Angels that screams Kniteforce from every kick, every synth and every second. Having a bad day?, put this on, it won’t fail to lift you up again. You’ve got to know something to love it and if you know Kniteforce whether a newbie or a 40 something who experienced it all in real time, this remix embodies everything about the label, its style and ethos. Manic fun!!!! Sit down Richie!!!

Vinyl Is Better 2 [Kniteforce]

Vinyl Is Better 2 [Kniteforce]

Pre-Order CD album from Bandcamp

Kniteforce Records continue the oldskool revival with ‘Vinyl Is Better 2′. Original artists and fresh talent unite for a compilation of 1991-1998 inspired Breakbeat Hardcore, Hardcore and Jungle. These brave individuals took the banner and ran with it. In the name, and spirit of a sound that to quote the artist Q Bass “never dies”

This album is made up of 12 eminent musical offerings of the 90’s rave brand. Let’s dive into them….

Nicky Allen ‘Here Dis’

Breakbeat Hardcore stalwart, prolific producer and dedicated DJ, Nicky Allen returns to the Kniteforce fold with some 1994 style feverish breakage. ‘Here Dis’ begins with a dark intro similar to the classic ‘Some Justice’ by Urban Shakedown. As things progress, melodic pianos and mad synths enter the fray to ensure plenty of variety.

Alex Jungle ‘A Feeling You Cannot Understand’

Alex Jungle demonstrates his polished production with a tune that can aptly be described as ‘the Kniteforce sound’. The swirling, sugary synths temporarily mask a flurry of hard 91-92 era Hardcore/Jungle Tekno pads.

The Trip ‘The Snowball’ (Mannik Remix)

Mannik’s remix of original Kniteforce anthem ‘The Snowball’ brings meritable comparison to Boogie Times Tribe ‘The Dark Stranger’. A dark breach in the hull of happiness that is ‘Vinyl Is Better 2′. A torrent of angry hoovers and buzzing riffs fight for your attention on this murky reversion to 1993

Bucksta ‘Let’s Get Ill’

Bucksta probably won’t make you ill but he will make you dance!!! It’s time for some Rave Breaks fun with ‘Let’s get Ill’. Some ‘pump yo’ fist’ Hip Hop vocals should get the testosterone flowing. Along with the call to action vox, hard Belgian mentasm stabs and thumping breaks are the perfect construct for serious mayhem. Oh yes, and watch out for the speed up/slow down mid section!!!

Ant To Be ‘You Know What’

From the inception, we are in 92 era Reinforced Records territory with Ant To Be’s submission to this absolute asset of an album. Close your eyes and you could be listening to Manix!!!

Audio X ‘Echoes’

Another Rave Breaks veteran weighs in and biy do they weigh in!!! More oldskool than Rave Breaks, ‘Echoes’ bathes us in a sea of acid riffs and euphoric keys. Put this tune in the dictionary as an additional definition for ‘rush’!

Dj Luna-C ‘Technical Shmecnical’

Luna-C pops in to say ‘hello!’ with ‘Technical Shmecnical’. How do you describe this? Adjectives like ‘Rapid’, ‘Jolly’, and ‘Exhilarating’ come to mind. Melodic madness at full throttle, play it loud and dance to it like you have no inhibitions at all!!

TNO Project ‘Here Comes Da Feelin’

TNO Project has such a crisp and authentic sound you would think he is an original Kniteforce artist. Here we have the classic juxtaposition of dark and light that lies at the very heart of Rave music. This will give you goosebumps!!!

Empyreal ‘Things Like This’

We’re sure a certain Mr Matt ‘Slipmatt’ Nelson would adore this track. Pure audacious Happy Hardcore. How can you not love the slamming kick drums and super saccharine melodies of ‘Things Like This’?

Demcore ‘Summer’ (The Timespan Remix)

Now this is interesting, now you know what it would sound like if you combined 1998 style vocal Happy Hardcore with its 1992 predecessor. Nice little nod to The Prodigy on this track, see if you can spot it!!

Dj Deluxe ‘You Take My Love’

A welcome rejoin from one of Kniteforce’s latter day veterans. Fast paced Hardcore Breaks with a stand-up and smile voluminous piano hook and alternating funky stabs.

Saiyan And Cru-l-t ‘High Da Way’ (Luna-C Remix)

You know when you don’t want something to end, right? This album is tremendous. If you love your oldskool rave/hardcore, you can’t be without this grand compilation and what a way to finish!! Luna-C’s supercharged energy burst of a remix is one way of saying ‘we won’t go out quietly’. Enormous revelry in just under five minutes, phew!!!

Kniteforce 64 & 65 The Remixes (Vinyl)



Pre-Order LTD Edition Vinyl Here

Kniteforce Records reveal their first new vinyl release in 18 years. Kniteforce 64 & 65 sees established and fresh new artists remixing classics from the label’s illustrious back cat.

Let’s start with Kniteforce 64 featuring remixes by Scott Brown, DJ Luna C (The boss of all things Kniteforce), and Ant To Be

1.DJ Luna C- Piano Progression (Scott Brown Remix)

Luna C ‘Piano Progression’ is a post 92′ breakbeat hardcore classic with lots and lots of rushy pianos. Scott Brown swaps the breakbeats for some 95′ style Bouncey Techno stabs and kickdrums that perfectly compliment those make your skin go all bumpy pianos!!!

2.DJ Ham-It Would Be (Luna C Remix)

DJ Ham now known as Hamilton of RAM Records notoriety produced countless gems back in the breakbeat/happy hardcore era. Luna C takes us back to those magical times with spliced up breaks and huge spacey ravey riffage for the oldskool cru

3.Jimmy J & Cru L T- Ool Lortnoc (Ant To Be Remix)

Russian producer Ant To Be brings down the tempo of the original ‘Ool Lortnoc’ and adds in a load of 92′ style uplifting synths and rolling breaks

And now to Kniteforce 65

1.DJ Force & The Evolution- Fall Down On Me (Billy ‘Daniel’ Bunter & Sanxion Back To Labrynth 94 Remix)

Messrs Bunter & Sanxion need no introduction for their unrelenting efforts in the preservation and continuation of the oldskool hardcore sound. Their update on one of my favourite Kniteforce tracks is full of nice subtleties that will please oldskool lovers no end. Full of pristine production from start to finish, this is an oldskool masterclass

2.Future Primitive- Ban This (Nicky Allen Remix)

I’ve been following Nicky’s work since 2011, I have to say Mr Allen has done the absolute business here with a great fast paced cut up style remix full of busy and energetic sounds and great use of samples

3.The Trip- The ‘Erb (Scartat Remix)

A great way to finish up this fine package, a markedly different remix that sits somewhere between Jungle & Breakcore with slamming beats and fiery sounds, one to pump your fist to!!!
