Did you order these without hearing them Dadi? When I do an order fro OJ's it always takes me ages as I have to keep going to other sites for soundsamples... (so much so that it takes ages and is a real pain). Unfortunately the quality of modern releases makes this pretty much essetial. If OJ's had sound samples I'd buy everymonth - as it it I hardly bother anymore.

I generally dont listen Tim, I take the gamble. It adds to the excitment of spinning them first time however, you can get the bad with the good as is evident above.

I always use soundquake as the site to listen to samples and then order from Ernie. Works great. I rarely get bad tracks in anymore.

Digi, you might wanna check the Roots Tonic riddim next time. It is a wicked piece of work!

Yep BMC - Soundquake, don't forget Selectors Choice too between those two you'll get nearly everything but the very very recent.

mr dynamite is always credited to bunnie lie lie everywhere i have it.

al campbell: bad boy, would that be one beer bad boy?

too bad about that munrock one, most everything ive gotten repress on 7" from them has been unplayable on my set. same with a lot of techniques repress (if not all).

nice scores overall though.

one love

Tim : You do know that OJ carry sound samples for new riddims in the 'Juggling' section yeh ? its just that they have'nt updated it in nearly three months for some unknown reason, which likewise meant i too had to rely on Soundquake or Selectors Choice for samples.

Yeah, that juggling section of OJ was really nice, but the latest on there is Kasablance riddim for months already. :(

Hope they will start adding new mixes soon again.
