DJ Absolutely Shit - Pomona Island EPLABEL: Red Laser Records
Salford '95: a rave devotee with a penchant for Air Max cops an MPC1000Â off the back of a lorry & a cheeky lend of a Korg MS-20 from a local sputnik huffer, feverishly setting to work with a battered pile of hardcore breaks and mad love for the dancefloor. A bunch of explosive warehouse cuts are rapidly thrown down before he switches off his machines and heads off down Bowlers for the usual weekend pleasantries. Returning many days later and trounced off a wild combo of mitsis and brown acid, DJ AB is devastated to learn that a crew of lads from Hyde have ransacked his bedsit scrounging for his last ten bag - leaving the recently recorded DAT nowhere to be seen.
Thought to be lost this whole time, Red Laser CEO, Il Bosco (and distant Absolutely Shit family cuz) was 'unbelievably buzzing' and 'jizzing in my pants' upon happening across the item at one of his frequent car boot forays prompting a huge celebration down here at RLR HQ when we realized we'd finally be able to let the public in on this subversive aural gold from one of the scene's most elusive heads.
A super limited white label EP containing 2 dancefloor bombs and a couple weirdo tracks were pressed and hawked in record time back in 2017, and now change hands for top dosh. At the time of writing there's only 1 for sale in the shark pool (discogs init) for a whopping Â£500 and has got a jizz stain and 'shane is a ball bag' written on it. Almost like someone (possibly DJ Ab Shit himself after hacking into a mates account) is taking the mick here, crossing their fingers for a Japanese investment banker with infinite yen to pull the trigger only to be sent a jizz stain and no record via recorded delivery for an extra Â£38 postage...Henkin nashi (no refunds) g...
Anyway, for the second instalment from DJ Absolutely Shit and his first 'proper' release, Il Bosco (operating strictly within the original blueprints) has revisited these epochal rave musings and, alongside some help from extended Red Laser fam has tweaked em for modern playage.
