Rhotation, ( 11) Into BPM

Hello, its been one of those days..i was busy working at the pc when i started smelling melting plastic (?) then my pc switched off came back on and 2 min later out again..took the covers off cleaned it out but restarting didnt make it too the wallpaper.. Ouch. No change copying data. Now i got another system but that caused some troubles aswell, before i could work with it..silly stuff and i cant connect my trackball-of which ive been very fond of for 9 years now, i really dont understand why all of you are mousing along all the time. Well obviously all this cut into my preperation time so today..

In October 2000 React celebrated its 10th birthday, but it celebrated more than that. The history of the label tells the story of how acid house and club culture came of age. As React grew into one of the most successful and long-running independent dance labels in Britain, so did dance music. Nostalgics would tell you that club culture's days of innocence are gone, but, for all their success, React still believed in the same things they always have. Many dance labels rose and fell over the previous decade, but React continued to stay ahead of the pack.

Although React was enjoying its best period of turnover and profit for 5 years, the label was owed in excess of £1,000,000 in distributed income from 4am/Flute, part of the Beechwood Music group of companies that went into voluntary administration in June. Following Beechwood’s closure, React was unable to extract any monies due or trade out of such debts and as a result the label was forced into voluntary administration on 16th June 2004. In its place, a new company, Resist Music, has been set up by React's James Horrocks and Melissa Kemp and has since acquired the staff, rights and catalogue of React and is now officially open for business.

Here are two great Various Drum & Bass double albums released by the React . Artcore 3 & 4,  and in two flava's..

Celebrating D n B as an expression of thought and feeling, from the height of idyllic opimism to the depths of inner turmoil. Feel the urban uniformity, the hope tinged with soulfull realism and the freestyle freshness...each track of this compilation communiquates a unique ideausing both simple and sophisticated techniques, food for the thoughtful..enjoy
