Vibealite & Pleasuredome 'United States Of Hardcore' - 05.10.1996 - Drum & Bass


Recommended Posts

Drum & Bass tapes recorded at Vibealite & Pleasuredome 'United States Of Hardcore' on 5th October 1996 at Fantasy Island.

I'm not sure if there was a Drum & Bass tape pack released, but there are bootleg single tapes from the event. If anyone has any info on a tape pack or other single tapes, please let me know.

There's a happy hardcore pack from the night, tracklisted here - https://www.rolldabeats.com/forum/index.php?/topic/63700-united-states-of-hardcore-happy-hardcore-8-pack-05101996/

There's mention of a techno pack from the night here - https://www.rolldabeats.com/forum/index.php?/topic/70180-vibealite-events/

I can't find mention anywhere of a Drum & Bass pack though.

Good find. I'd say it's got to be from the same event. Like you say, the tracklist fits the date and both DJ's were playing in arena 2 that night. I've just come across a Billy Bunter / Brisk tape with the same style inlay on ebay as well. Both of them were also playing in arena 2 that night, so it looks like there's a few of these bootleg tapes out there.

Here's the tracklist for the 15 minutes or so that we have audio for:
