on from the success of "Omni Trio Volume 1 - The Deepest Cut", Moving
Shadow present "Foul Play - Suspected", a collection of tracks from
Foul Play, plus exclusive new tracks and VIP remixes previously unavailable
to the general public.
Foul Play are held in such high regard for their remix work mainly due
to the quality of their original offerings. Over the last two years
they've remixed singles for artists such as Hyper-On Experience, Omni
Trio, Bug Khan & The Plastic Jam, DJ Pulse, E-Z Rollers, Nookie, King
Just, Ray Keith, and most recently, The Shamen. This, however, is a
collection of their own material and only the second artist album from
Moving Shadow. We expect it to demonstrate once again the true style
and power of Jungle in 1995.
tell a Foul Play track when you hear it. The production oozes a certain
crispness; the beats programmed to perfection; a tune that hangs together
like an Armani suit.
to the Moving Shadow label in 1993, their ability as remixers produced
two of last year's finest moments: Omni Trio's 'Renegade Snares' and
Hyper On Experience's 'Lords of the Null Lines'. Their own single, 'Open
Your Mind' was also well received, both in and out of the hardcore scene;
whilst the recent 'Music is the Key' explores the path of vocal hardcore
that many seem wary of treading. Foul Play first came to the publics
attention in 1992 with 'Foul Play Vol. 1', released on their own Oblivion
label. Over the next two years, their music audibly matured as their
experience has grew. As with many hardcore artists, the duo - Steve
Bradshaw (Brad) & John Morrow - started out playing soul, jazz and funk
in the eighties, with all of them progressing on to the then burgeoning
house scene. After meeting through the small circle of aficionados in
the Milton Keynes area, they formed their own label and have plotted
a steady course through breakbeat and house releases.
