Mix! A REINFORCED Sound Episode 1 – Tribute to ‘The R’

24 12 2009

Reinforced Records mean a lot to me, and it’s fair to say, their pioneering sound shaped my current love of music and helped educate me about music of the past.

I won’t provide a long, detailed bio on the label – there’s plenty out there on the web, like this one: http://www.discogs.com/label/Reinforced+Records

However, it’s clear that the diverse jungle / drum and bass sounds they put out on (seriously loud) vinyl spawned many many imitators, founded more than one ‘scene’ and inspired / developed artists such as Seiji, Domu and countless others. And when I say ‘scenes’, I’m referring to them being the grand-daddys of the drum and bass era, and also the catalyst for the nu-jazz / broken beat movement. It’s easy to overlook the influence Reinforced had on the music we love today, but just take a look at their discography and you’ll know how far they reached

I’ve been meaning to do these mixes for a while – well, I actually did a series of Reinforced compilations but they’re somewhere at home on D90 tapes! biggrin.gif
I’m not going to include every single track in this new series of mixes, but I will be going across the collection from 1993 thru to 2004

Enjoy and feedback welcome!
