Well, I feel it’s about that time to release the whole lot of SMD’s in one final, and very posh in my opinion, CD package. It’s been over 23 years since I released SMD#1, time seems to have flown by, and after selling a final few vinyl copies lately that I found tucked away in the depths of my vast record collection, I feel it’s time to put closure to the label and do one final release so that everything is finally out there in its full digital entirety.
This time 2 years ago I released the signed vinyl limited edition SMD#5, the final official single, and it sold out on pre-order. I held back just a handful of copies which I have recently made available on Discogs.com, but they will soon be gone forever.
“SMD – The Ultimate Collection” signed CD will be available for pre-order from 1st December leading up to Christmas in time for the last post. It includes all of the official vinyl released singles, almost all of the official remixes, and a brand new mega mix of every decent SMD track that exists. This will certainly be the final chapter in my SMD story.
Some say SMD was the birth of Happy Hardcore as we know it, and in my opinion it definitely played a big part in the creation of this amazing unique and now iconic UK sound. Happy Hardcore went from being ultra-popular in 93/94/95 to helping make history with venues like The Sanctuary in Milton Keynes, to filling Wembley Conference Centre for Fusion and Ravelation, to helping make Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, Slammin Vinyl and so many more become the absolute legends that they are.
I’m constantly getting asked where people can buy these tracks in digital format so it is with great pleasure to let you know that this is now going to become possible and I will be making 500 very special, personally signed, collectors copies of “SMD – The Ultimate Collection” just for you. Please go to World Of Rave where you can pre-order your copy now.
