That Hashplant is a slightly alternate mix with "dance with the speaker" vocals, but thought I'd leave that out to avoid confusion. Does anyone know what the Ed Rush & Rymetyme track is?

Here are a couple more for the list:


Rollers Rock


Jazz Killer

Jazz Killer (Different Mix)

There is also one with a sample that says "Make the world ready for the change, Power from new believers, The more people who believe the faster the journey"

There is also another mix of Area 39 "This time" that Arne90 posted up.

And i'm not sure if anyone added "Sci-Fi Step Tech"

Woodsnake managed to get more info about the "Ed Rush & Optical - Unknown (Red Floor Alternative Version?)". Straight from Optical himself.




Its actually me and Trace in 1998...it was made from drums taken from a cassette tape and some old orchestral sample pack that came with the E6400 sampler....never sounded great quality-wise but was a nice experiment I think and I loved those drum loops so much even though there is no good version of them out there...it only exists now on some crusty 10" dubplate from Music House so lost to the sands of time I guess. Never had a real name BTW. Wish I had a DAT of it but alas no.

Been seeing some rumours that a bunch of these tunes are about to see an imminent release!


No track list yet but apparently there is an album title 'Optical20Years' and has a possible release date of Feb this year... I know quite a few of these have appeared in full on his soundcloud, but a full compilation of these in better quality, wow.



As an aside, take a look at this video. Is this some very early footage of Optical in the studio??


They're definitely playing "Mental Patient" in the background as the scene begins.Tried to hotlink the direct moment in the vid, hopefully it works but if not skip to 11:30 to get to it


Thanks to Mr Rinse for bring my attention to this documentary!
