Album Notes
As one of the earliest and most successful acts signed to the Contagious Records label in the UK during the early 1990's, RELEASE stood out along with other well-known artists of the time as pioneers of the hardcore breakbeat/techno scene that was to eventually evolve into drum & bass. Consisting of Nigel Broad and DJ Rush Puppie, the band's first single, 'Dance In Eden', became a classic anthem, played at raves and festivals all over the UK and Europe during the summer of 1992. After several remixes by Interface and Sy-Kick, the band released the 'Spirit of Space' EP. Another success, this 4 track EP carried the band into 1993. After parting ways with Contagious, Nigel and Rush Puppie hooked-up with Deep Seven Records to release another single - 'The Jungle' c/w 'Musical Movements', in late 1993.

After many years of limited availability on the second-hand market, all of the classic tracks from RELEASE are back, re-mastered and compiled onto a double CD set, titled ‘The Spirit of Space’ and released on LikeMinded Records. 17 tracks in all, including rare and previously unreleased tracks from 1992/93.


to write a review


large choons
At last all the release classics in one place, great to remeniss to, brought back some cloudy memories! Very impressed with the deep 010 tracks as I had never heard these before. Big respect to you Nigel. If you get a chance to get hold of a copy of this CD its well worth the investment.


Old Skool Classics
I'm lucky enough to own Dance in Eden, Spirit of Space and one of the remix vinyls from when they were 1st released... needless to say they rarely come out of there sleeves due the potential cost of replacement! This cd has therefore been the answer to my prayers, all the classics, remixes and unreleased bundled together to give the listener a hardcore/breakbeat treat!! Highly recommended!!


Well, i can tell ya this is a master disc!

That \"The Jungle\" track was on my unknowns till a few days ago when i asked a question about the \"Deep Seven\" label on the forum..

heard that the number 8 and 10 of Deep Seven will be pressed on wax?

Keep watching this space!

Respect to Nigel and all Hardcore minded people and all on b2vos..

Back To Skool...
at last, all the classic old skool tracks from Release, including Dance In Eden and Drifting, are now available on this excellent double CD. The original vinyls have been trading upwards of $100 on eBay, so I was thrilled when I discovered this. All the classic tracks that take me back to the heady rave-filled days of 1992 are here, as well as rare and unreleased stuff. So crank it up to 11 (or 12 if you have it) and enjoy these classics for the first time remastered on CD. You gotta love that!


great to see these available again
i *loved* these tracks and the remixes. it's awesome to see them remastered/released. it only takes a couple of seconds of listening to have all the good times memories come flooding back...


Re-Release By Release Surpasses The Originals
I was there in the UK when the raves were going on and Top Buzz & Grooverider caned these tunes on the massive sound systems, these were great then and now sound even crispier great tunes by Nigel Broad & Co. Check out the other releases you still get on wax if you just search the net.
Nice One Nigel Keep the tunes coming !!


really glad found this available as mp3!
Own almost all of their records. Absolute classic harcore linked with lots of memories. but it's a shame they've let Elusive repress the vinyls...


el bambino
I dont know what to say. this cd brought back some great memories.. im glad i found this.
