DJ Red Alert & Mike Slammer - Slammin Vinyl (Radioactive Recordings)


Red Alert and Mike Slammer released some of the greatest tracks from the 1993-94 era of breakbeat hardcore on their own Slammin' Vinyl label, typically featuring ruff breaks, uplifting piano-lines, dub riffs and one or two bits blatantly lifted from earlier dance tunes. :) In later years the label also released happy hardcore anthems Rushin' On Pink Champagne and Eye Opener

Now Slammin Vinyl is not only a record label but also a record shop and a Rave event organisation. They also release tape packs from their events as well as compilation albums featuring Hardcore, Old Skool and Drum & Bass.


Tranz-mission 2006 hosted by Slammin' Vinyl at London's Alexandra Palace Saturday 15th April 2006

Brain Records was the label where Slammin Vinyl's Mike Slammer & Red Alert had their first two releases.
