rufige cru - Reinforced Presents: Rufige Cru - The Early Plates

OK, so it really doesn't come much better than this, a collection of early Rufige Cru plates? Yes please mate! For those of you who were too pilled up at the time or for those who've suffered memory loss since the heady days of 1992-93, Rufige Cru was the first incarnation of Clifford Price aka Goldie, or for the seriously young crew, the bloke with the gold teef off the James Bond movie (wrong, innit?). Anyway, Rufige Cru delivered some of the most groundbreaking and crucially seminal breakbeat hardcore and rave tracks of the era and went on to become one of Jungle D'n'B's most notorious characters. It's hard to think what the world would be like without 'Terminator II', Rufige Cru's most distinctive and anthemic trademark that introduced the world to brutally pitch shifted breakbeat assaults and darkside Belgian techno with a rudeboy sneer and a Stussy branded attitude back in 1993, shocking a nation with a technologically enhanced and highly virulent form of dance music that sounded like nothing else before it. But of course that was just the tip of a very special iceberg, as this compilation pulls together nine other equally essential early cuts produced between the Breakbeat Hardcore halcyon days of 1992-93. The almost unimaginable fusion of David Sylvian's Japan classic 'Ghosts' with warehouse riling breakbeats and darkside synths on 'Ghosts Of My Life' was just another of the shockingly uninhibited fusions created by Goldie and his studio engineer Rob Playford of 2 Bad Mice. This relationship with Playford was one of the most productive and forward thinking of a generation, with the two pitting an unrivalled and unprecedented imagination against one of the most skilled and forward thinking heads of his time to concoct a truly deadly and timeless style which practically inspired a whole industry behind it. Tracks like the hyper-hiphop of 'Krisp Biscuit' or dramatic mini-symphonies of rave fuelled dystopia like 'Dark Rider' took what had preceded them and comepletely reimagined them to fulfil their own needs, and the needs of warehouse spaces and fields full of tripping dancers looking for a stylish fix of the future. If our gushing hyperbolics didn't make it clear, we've got a bad ting for Rufige Cru and wholeheartedly believe that this is one of the finest collections of dancing music history available on the planet. Besides the fact that it would cost you the best part of a grand to own all the indivisual twelves, we can honestly say this is priceless. Feel this.
