So this guy named 'Mick' shows up one day in late 1997. He's from Adelaide originally and is serving in the Royal Australian Air Force, of which there is a base near Newcastle. He's got turntables in his living quarters on base and is looking for records. The previous week he had visited Sydney where someone behind the counter at BPM Records had told him about the regular Bloody Fist gigs at the Hunter On Hunter Hotel in Newcastle (with an added caution to 'watch out because they can be real dickheads'). On his way back to Newcastle on the train from Sydney that evening he had also overheard some random Newcastle girl loudly complaining to her friend about those same Hunter On Hunter gigs full of 'weird people with piercings' - where it cost $2 to get in and all the music was 'way too fast to dance to'.
At this point his curiosity was piqued and he then began his fairly intense learning curve of DJing, collecting, production and obsession with the (then flourishing) subgenres of techstep and hard acid. After a couple of years of continual involvement with the Hunter On Hunter gigs (and annoying Newie's neo-hippies with his frantic Lasse Steen 12"s), Mick started experimenting with FT2, using his now extensive record collection as the sound sources for all of his experiments. Mick had already released a track on Sydney drum & bass DJ V-Tek's label 'Magnetic' in 2001, when a gap came up in the Bloody Fist catalogue between the fairly major BF releases FIST27 (late 2001) and FIST28 (late 2002). It was decided to shoehorn in a quick and dirty 12" release as FIST26 (which for some reason still hadn't been assigned), using two completed drum'n bass tracks that were heavily influenced by the records Mick had been playing out for some time under the DJ name Subsonic.
Despite alienating quite a few hardcore BF fanatics, the initial pressing sold well enough to warrant a moderately sized repress a few months after its April 2002 release.


released April 15, 2002

Written and produced by Michael Nynycz in the Newcastle suburb of Tighes Hill, using FT2 and a stack of drum & bass wax as the sound sources.
