Nexus 21

Date: Thursday 18th March 2010
Found: Music & Video Exchange, Greenwich
Price: £1

Nexus 21 ft. Donna Black - Still (Life Keeps Moving)
Network Records, 1990

1. Still (Life Keeps Moving)

1. Still (Life Keeps Moving) (Carl Craig Remix)
2. Still (Life Keeps Moving) (MK Remix)

Was pretty chuffed with this find in the treasure trove that is the bargain bin in the Greenwich branch of Music & Video Exchange. Nexus 21 was the first project of the outfit that soon went onto be Altern-8 and take the hardcore scene by storm.

A classic 90s techno record, very reminiscent of Inner City, although probably a bit harder sounding. The Marc Kinchen remix is the choice cut here, stripping away the vocals and including a lovely stripped down string break at 50 secs into the record.
