FACT Mix 250 – 2 Bad Mice

[BoxTitle]FACT Mix 250: 2 Bad Mice[/BoxTitle]

The fine folks at FACT keep amazing mixes coming, and this one is no let down:

FACT mix 250 is a time machine. It’s destination? 1991, ’92, ’93, ’94.
This time machine has been built for us by 2 Bad Mice, the original nutters whose early productions – produced in collaboration with Rob Playford – constitute some of early rave’s finest musical moments, and midwifed jungle into life.

Founded in 1991 by Sean O’Keefe and Simon Colebooke, and, in a brilliant contraction of distant points on the map of English culture – dirty raves and bucolic children’s literature – they took their name (and that of their signature, breakthrough track) from Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Two Bad Mice, about two good-for-not rodents who vandalise a little girl’s dollhouse. The moniker, with its connotations of mischief, mayhem and bare-faced cheek, was perfect for O’Keefe and Colebrooke’s concoctions of shifty breakbeats, impish vocal loops and earth-quaking sub-bass.
