NEW 18 TRACK ALBUM from PAUL BLACKFORD!! This CD has Paul\'s signature Electro BASS sound, but is his deepest, most varied, most Ambient and Beautiful release to date! Features remixes by Paul\'s mates Electrokinesia, FaltyDL and Smashback!! Paul Blackford grew up in the early nineties at the peak of the Rave/Acid House era. During this time he was copying mix tapes that his older brother brought home from raves and listening to them. After a couple of years of listening to these tapes and buying records on Shut Up And Dance, Impact, Network and various other labels Paul found a demo of a music sequencing program on an amiga magazine cover disk and started creating his own tunes. After saving up enough money he brought a Yamaha QY70 and starting playing live sets using the portable sequencer. Towards the end of the nineties Paul formed the Uncanny X-squad with college friends (Method) Mel France and Tom (sk) Putnam and the trio started putting on illegal parties in south London. In 2002 Paul struck a deal with Ed DMX\'s label, Breakin\' and his first EP entitled \'1991\' was released in February 2003. The EP was created using a Pentium II computer that Paul found in a skip outside some offices and a copy of Fruity Loops, proving that you don\'t need expensive equipment to make music. The EP fused the unmistakable sounds of old-skool rave, 8-bit computer sounds and incredibly fierce sub-bass. The Breakin\' press release described it as being \'like Aux 88 locked in a suburban UK bedroom with a few Dream FM tapes from 1992.\' While Kudos Records classed it as a pioneering new UK Bass sound. Paul has released further material on Audio Aubergine, Base Logic, Breakin', Delta 9 Plastics, Digital Distortions, WeMe Records, WIDE and also library music for television on BMG Zomba.
