Spirit of Space
As one of the earliest and most successful acts signed to the Contagious Records label in the UK during the early 1990's, RELEASE stood out along with other well-known artists of the time as pioneers of the hardcore breakbeat/techno scene that was to eventually evolve into drum & bass. Consisting of Nigel Broad and DJ Rush Puppie, the band's first single, 'Dance In Eden', became a classic anthem, played at raves and festivals all over the UK and Europe during the summer of 1992. After several remixes by Interface and Sy-Kick, the band released the 'Spirit of Space' EP. Another success, this 4 track EP carried the band into 1993. After parting ways with Contagious, Nigel and Rush Puppie hooked-up with Deep Seven Records to release another single - 'The Jungle' c/w 'Musical Movements', in late 1993. After many years of limited availability on the second-hand market, all of the classic tracks from RELEASE are back, re-mastered and compiled onto a double CD set, titled 'The Spirit of Space' and released on LikeMinded Records. 17 tracks in all, including rare and previously unreleased tracks from 1992/93.
