"For the last five years I have been trying to get the breakbeat/jungle scene to come alive in Sweden, with very little response. A major hurdle has been the unwillingness of certain rave and club promotors who have turned their backs on breakbeat without giving the music an honest chance to be judged by its audience. The techno and house scene is alive and kicking here with all its fashion victims jumping on the bandwagon 4 the latest trend and (yeah) that's great too.
The original rave style (UK) is breakbeat with MC's and a huge sound system rocking with a message of love and 100% attitude free.
In '93 I, together with Tony Henderson (UK/Romford) started a radio show drum & bass style. We also did some all-nighters jungle fever, but Stockholm wasn't ready.
In '95 I and Haziza decided that the time was right, together with the people behind the group Rise we became Rise Massive. Now jungle is kicking in Stockholm and the rave scene is stronger than ever. For the first time it covers the whole spectrum from house/acid/jungle to trance.
Fluid Records has risen from an underground label to a strong force in the European dance scene. Remember, the force gets its strength from once source and that source is you. Never give up.
I, Glenn C, would also like to pay my respect to my family and Annelie Jonsson, without her I couldn't make it. Kevin, my son, 4 the inspiration. Mom, 4 always being there. My late father, may God be with you. Stockholm Drum & Bass Posse, Pavel Kobak, Peanut Planet, Antiloop, P3 Dance, Tony Senghore, Karre, Thomas Norling and Khan. Bob Marley, The Prodigy, DJ Crazy, Atmosphere, Nico B, Bar-M and BCM.
Massive respect to David Stone and the S.O.U.R. posse, Ray Keith, Nicky (Black Market), Dj Vibe, Mickey Finn, Easy Groove. Club Labyrinth, Ajax, Rise Massive, Carl Cox and Delta Discos, Ibiza.
Thank U London 4 your 100% attitude-freeness and inspirational atmosphere."
-Glenn C, Label Manager
"As we're moving towards late '95 you will receive some more explosive cuts from Fluid Records. This autumn it is time for the debut albums from groups like the Swedish break beat pioneers Peanut Planet, who have gained massive respect from DJ's like Ray Keith, DJ Vibes and Fabio for the EP 'Our Music'.
Another exciting album is expected from our trance gurus Antiloop, who reached no 3 on the Swedish Prime Cuts chart as well as being 'This Weej's Dance EP' on Sweden's national radio P3. Their video 'Beauty & The Beast' has been shown several times on MTV.
For the ambient parts of your mind, you can look forward to hearing the album from Stereo Scope. A chill out zone with ingredients of dub and trance.

Uploader's comment: I've been contemplating wether or not I should upload these songs for about two years now. While I in general am against piracy, I feel that old, rare, unknown or forgotten songs should be uploaded so they can be heard again. There were a few songs from this compilation album already on Youtube, but not all. These are good songs, damn good, and I think that ultimately I'm doing the world a favour.
