Clashmouth and Previews…


As you know, I usually don’t talk too much about upcoming releases, because like to play my cards fairly close to the chest. I like the element of surprise when releasing new material. But recent events have sort of forced my hand and so I am going to do something a little unusual and tell you all about what is coming and when…ish. I add the “ish” because the thing that has forced my hand is Clashmouth and when things will arrive is a bit unsure.

Clashmouth, for those of you who do not know, is a big d’n’b and old skool vinyl market, that takes place a few times each year for a day in London. There is one on the 18th of April, and Kniteforce is going to have a stall there. It is a great place for buying and selling vinyl, and its specifically for our scene, so its a big deal and very exciting. Various labels do special editions and extra goodies for Clashmouth, and we will be doing that too. But in our case, it means speeding up a lot of what we have coming so that we have exclusives for that day. Some of those releases will be available before Clashmouth, and some after.

In other words, what we were going to stretch over March, April and May has now all been ordered to arrive by April 18th. And for the most part, that doesn’t really effect anything, except for one exceptionally exciting forthcoming bundle:


This was originally due for a late April early May release, allowing for a presale in late March. But now we have to speed that up just a little, because in order to have the vinyl for Clashmouth, I HAVE to get the order in at the record press by early March.

I know this is very bad timing. The Hyper On Experience Everything bundle is a big ticket item, and it stretches finances to follow that so swiftly, but it is what it is. And what it is is, ordering the right number of records is tricky. Often I can make an educated guess. But releases like Acen and Chromatic? I HAVE to have a rough idea of how popular its going to be otherwise there is the real danger of under-ordering (bad because people miss out and represses are tricky dur to needing to meet certain levels) or over-ordering (bad because space is an issue for us and its both a loss of space and money if we have 200 too many records hanging about the place).

So this bundle (and the records individually) will go up for presale fairly soon (along with a small repress of the original KF113 – Acen – Play 2092 EP). Either March 2nd or March 9th – I am waiting to find out how fast my press can turn them around, in order to meet the 18th of April Clashmouth date. I always over order a little on these bigger releases, so even if you are a bit skint, you should be able to nab one for yourself, I just have to have a rough idea of how popular they are going to be before I put the order in with the record press.

Other than that, we have so many amazing new releases and EPs coming…so here is a list of everything we currently have processing – that is to say, all of the below have been sent to be cut and are at various stages. Hopefully all of these will be available on the day for Clashmouth. I have added notes about each one under the pics but I have no soundclips yet, sorry. And I have done them in a sort of “expected arrival” order…so lets go…

KF106 – Luna-C – Remixes: This one should be with us soon and features some stunning remixes for you all to enjoy. Edge Of Madness and Success’n’Mistreat remixes were both featured in Supaset 20, and both Dj Beenos and Shoreman drop huge remixes!

KF108 – Legends Vs Legends Vol. 1: This is a very limited 10″ – I am only pressing 300 and it is likely exclusive to the KF stores. It is the first in a series (we have 3 confirmed so far) and each one pitches 2 old skool artists against each other in a battle for remix supremacy! The second part is further down this list…

REC25 – Al Storm & Diakronik – Timeless 2 / REC26 – Stu Chapman & Rob Fender – Nice Shootin EP: These two brand spanking new Remix Records releases are tearing slices of old skool goodness. Al Storm and Diakronik follow up their first EP on RR with an even bigger and bolder set of tunes, and Stu Chapman and Rob Fender kill it dead with an amazing EP. Limited to 200 a piece, these should arrive in March and be gone real fast…and with them will be…

KOOR03 – Optical Haze – Wonderful Experiences EP Yes yes and TRIPLE YES. one of my favourite EPs from Out Of Romford gets the repress treatment. Chance To Dance was a track I played so much it pretty much wore out my original copy of this, but funnily enough, back in the day I barely listened to the other tunes. And I missed out because damn they are fire! And I am thrilled to be releasing this EP, again expected on the AllTheRave store in March…

KF112 – Abyss – Amen Formulation: This wicked EP builds on the epic first release from Abyss, with heavier basslines if you can believe it. 4 tracks of fury and darkness and, of course, AMENS!!!

KF119 – Legends Vs Legends Vol. 2: Part two of the series steps it up another notch, and I am telling you now, this Legends series is going to be legendary. We already have part 3 almost ready (Sublove Vs Hyper On Experience) and have part 4 in process (Liquid Vs Dj Force & The Evolution). BOOM!!!

KFW05 – Alk-e-d – Live From The Isle EP / KFW06 – Sub Fundation – Instruments, Fun & Sugar EP: I am not sure when these will drop – likely not much before Clashmouth. But when they do, they will be gone within a few days if the first 4 releases are anything to go by. And yes, these are as good as, if not better, than the first 4. Alk-e-d is one of the original old skool artists from Kniteforce, and one of my oldest friends besides, plus this EP is produced by Dj Beeno, so nuff said. Sub Fundation is new to the label, but his EP is incredible. Winners all around…

KBN06 – Tight Control – Stormtrooper / Ruffin it Up

KBOOM02 – Citadel Of Kaos – Ronnies Revenge / Alpha 1

KST01 – J.D.S – Higher Love / Stomp it Up

All three of these are classics getting the remaster treatment…all three are due in April 🙂

ATR04 – All The Rave 1994 Vinyl & Double CD Combo: Following 1991 with 1994 is a typical KF move, and likewise this vinyl and double CD is typically good ha ha! Specially selected remasters and original tunes all in a wonderful 1994 style, 4 brand new tunes on vinyl, an unmixed CD of 13, and a mixed CD of 21 by our very own Dj The Lowercase, its not one to be missed. May release, but hopefully will make it to Clashmouth…

KOOR04 – New Decade – Beyond The Message Double Pack EP: This is mindbendingly good – how could it not be? Get The Message is a stone cold classic, Hyper Ons Remix is bananas, and the whole EP is one brilliant track after another! Hopefully in time for Clashmouth, but official release date will likely be May…

KF118 – Industries of The Blend EP : This is a new EP in an old, early 90s style. I hope you will dig it because it is some of my best work 🙂 and it may or may not be here in time for Clashmouth, we will see….but a May release date is likely…

KF120 – Sublove – Sublove Legacy Vol. 3 Double Pack EP: This one hardly needs an introduction, and again, a May release but hoping to have it for Clashmouth…

KF121 – Sublove – Vexation EP: Sublove sent me the track “Vexation” as something he found on a DAT that had never been released. Frankly, it is a stunning piece of work, one of the tunes of the year already in my opinion. A bonkers heavy amen and vocal workout ala Dropping Science Vol. 1 or that era of early jungle / d’n’b madness. I dont know why it wasnt released back in the day, it absolutely should have been. But I count Kniteforce as supremely lucky to be able to have it now. Expected and hoped for in time for Clashmouth, 100 limited red vinyl…May will be the main release date though I think!

So all in all….quite a lot going on and its a very exciting time. But I do want to emphasize that while this is a HUGE list of releases, these are going to spread over the next 4 months. I am simply giving you a heads up as to what is coming, and as to what should be available for Clashmouth!!!

Hope to see you there!


Nice one,


Chris / Luna-C



The Hyper On Experience EVERYTHING Bundle is almost here…

So before I even start, and for those who are TL:DR (and I dont blame you, I do waffle on), here are the important details…

This project is easily the biggest thing Kniteforce has ever done, period. Epic is the word I would use. We wanted to make this project very special, and very special it is. On top of the physical goodies, which are extensive, this bundle has exclusive remixes from the likes of New Decade, NRG, Alk-e-d & Beeno, Luna-C & Lowercase, Stu Chapman, Innercore, Gothika Shade and too many to mention really…and the third vinyl, that is only available with the bundle, contains remasters of the classic remix of Disturbance by Tango, the afore mentioned New Decade remix of Timestretch, an incredible remix of Imajika by Shadowplay, and a jaw dropping 2020 remix of Lords Of The Null Lines by Danny Styles.

The USB key is 16 gig, which is lucky, because we have used roughly 15gig of that. It has taken over a week just to load each USB with all the goodies.

Both Alex and I were very keen to make this release not only the most epic and brilliant of the Hyper On releases so far, and not only the ultimate, complete works of Hyper On Experience (all remastered and in MP3 and 24bit Wav formats), but importantly, we wanted it to still be huge value for money even if you were lucky enough to pick up every previous Kniteforce Hyper On Experience bundle. Quite apart from EVERYTHING that has been out before on the vinyl and the bonus CDs, it also has 24 exclusive remixes / new tunes / remasters, and on top of that, the 12 tracks which also feature on the triple vinyl.

Which means, as well as the triple 12″ vinyl and the fully loaded Hyper On Experience 16gig USB drive, you also get the poster, which is double sided (one side showing the 9 main KF releases artwork, and one side with the new Hyper On logo) and a massive 24 x 24 inches on heavyweight paper!

And of course, the slipmat…which is a slipmat lol – and its a superb looking one!

Now, this is limited to 150 copies. The limited number available is due to the outlay and costs of a project of this size. We have already ordered the vinyl, the USB sticks, slipmats and posters. It is all high quality stuff and therefore its not a cheap thing to put together, but all should be ready by the time the pre-sale opens on February the 17th, to meet the official release date of the 2nd of March. We will, of course, start sending these out earlier if we can.

As for the price? What would you expect for a bundle of this size? I have seen various projects of this kind come out, and I have thought that the prices asked can sometimes be a little…steep…for what you are given. As always, Kniteforce flips that entire script, and we aim to give you MUCH more than you might expect for your money, so have settled on £79.99 / $99.99 which is, frankly, amazing, if I say so myself, which I do 🙂

So yeah, we expect this will sell out super fast, and I for one cant WAIT to get it in your hands and ears!!! Below is the fianl rundown of ALL the details:


Triple 12″ Vinyl with full colour sleeve, Slipmat, 24″ Double Sided Poster, and a 16 gig metal USB key containing 88 tracks in both 320 MP3 and 24bit Wav formats, a huge sample pack, stems from a few of the new tunes, and 12 videos. It has previously unreleased music sourced from DAT, demo tracks, new remixes and new material, all lovingly remastered.

Number Of Copies Available: 150

Presale Opens: Monday 17th of February 2020

Release Date: Monday 2nd March 2020

Price: £79.99 / $99.99



Nice one,






Hyper On Experience – Lord Of The Null Lines Remixers Revealed!

Ah yeah, its FINALLY time to talk about this…

Yes, its the Lord Of The Null Lines double 10″ vinyl. And I am here to tell you we have an absolutely amazing set of remixes by an amazing set of remixers. And I want to tell you all about it, but first: here is the full track listing and details:

KF99 – Hyper On Experience – Lord Of The Null Lines Remixes (Double 10″ Vinyl)

A1. Shimon & Benny L Remix

B1. Acen Remix

C1. Fracus & Darwin Remix

D1. Shoreman Remix

Bonus: Empyreal Remix

Just look at that list. I still cant quite believe it to be honest. Here is how they all came about.

Once the deal with Moving Shadow was done, Alex Hyper On and I talked about how we wanted to do all the releases, and early on we knew that the Lord Of The Null Lines remixes had to be “out of this world” good. And the bar is so high. Both the original and the Foul Play remix are classics, and remixing classics is tricky. Not to mention, both are vastly different in style. Who can you get to do remixes that do justice?

On top of that, while I love the Foul Play remix, I felt like no one had ever done a really good remix of the original version of the track. The Foul Play remix is genius, but it is very far from the original version, and subsequent remixes of Lord Of The Null Lines have been remixes of the Foul Play remix. Nothing wrong with that at all, except the original is so stunningly good that it deserved a credible remix.

So. Slightly tricky – remixes of both versions that do those versions credit AND move them forward? Yeah. Thats tough.

Alex and I reasoned that The Foul Play remix update should be done by a big name in the current d’n’b scene. I know ONE person in that scene, my old label friend Hamilton. So I asked him and he immediately suggested Shimon & Benny L. This appealed to me immensely because 1. I know who Shimon is, being a fan of his early stuff on Ram, 2. Thats a perfect thing to me – an old skool name AND a modern artist and 3. I trust Hams judgement, and Ham assured me that Shimon was the top of the game in the wonderful world of D’nB, which is what this track deserved. Ham put us together, and I told Shimon what I needed – a new remix of Lord Of The Null Lines but sort of staying true to the Foul Play remixes. And Shimon and Benny L knocked it out of the park. The remix is absolutely mindbendingly brilliant, and exactly what both Alex and I wanted.

Even better, Shimon (who was my main contact of the duo) was an absolute star to work with, very helpful and courteous and if I ever get the chance to work with him again, I will do so immediately. Brilliant remix, brilliant people, all round brilliant.

While Shimon and Benny L got to work, Acen had his new EP and the deal with Acen and Kniteforce came about. Now Acen has historically not done many remixes outside of Production House. One maybe? And I didn’t know him very well, I am still just getting to know him actually. So the idea of him remixing Lord of the Null Lines was like…the most amazing thing that could happen, right? As soon as I thought of it I thought “PERFECT and BRILLIANT” and other words in capital letters. But honestly, I thought it would never. Still, if you don’t ask…So I asked. And Acen was like “sure, send me the parts and we will see what happens”.


And then, for the next few weeks, I didn’t want to hassle Acen, but I was like “OMG what if this happens?” and was probably unbearable to live with lol.

Meanwhile, I definitely wanted a modern hardcore remix – if we had the top of the D’n’B world remixing it, we ought to have the top of the hardcore world doing the same. So obviously Fracus & Darwin. We have been working together on various things and I was thrilled when they said they would do a remix. So once again, I sent the parts, and was now waiting for two remixes from two huge acts, as I had the first draft (and nearly finished version) of the massive Shimon & Benny L one already.

Three remixes is not ideal. Alex and I wanted to keep the 10″ format that the early remixes had, to keep the theme of the repress / reimagined / remixed thing going. And you cant put 2 tracks on a single side of a 10″. We either needed to lose one and do a single 10″ EP, or add one and have a double 10″ EP. We chose the double pack because again, the project deserved it…and this meant we needed one more remix. Two in fact because what if Acen found he couldn’t do it? All artists have that – sometimes you just cant remix a thing for a multitude of reasons. Also, I wanted a remix that stayed true to the original version. I had no idea what Acen would come back with in that respect.

So I contacted two Kniteforce artists who in my opinion are hugely talented. First I hit up Empyreal – I knew his remix would be absolutely unique because his style is absolutely unique. And I knew Alex would dig Empys style, because it is so unusual. So off the samples went…and then I hit up Shoreman and gave him a nearly impossible task. “Please remix Lord Of The Null Lines, but I want a remix of the orginal, not the Foul Play version, and it has to be breakbeat and hardcore, and its Hyper On Experience so it has to be brilliant.”. It was most unfair of me lol.

And wow, did they both deliver. Empys remix is in many repsects exactly like the original and Foul Play remixes in that it is not like anything else heard before. Uniquely strange, heavy hitting and full of unexpected elements and classical instruments, it is gorgeous. Shoreman also saw how high the bar was set then leaped over it with space to spare. His remix is the perfect “new” version of the original, and is breathtakingly good. I love it.

And then Acen hit me up all casual like “heres the first version of the remix”…I fell off my chair, which is something I have been doing a lot with this project, and I am actually getting a little sore lol. Acens remix is brilliant, and is both very Aceny and very Hyper On, and just amazing. It is a remix of the best elements of both of the original remixes, and is exactly right.

Look, even as I write this I know I am like one of those people that just hypes up their own shit and is all “yeah, its the best thing ever” etc etc but damn it, this really is. This is 5 remixes of a definite classic and all 5 are perfect. I mean it. They are perfect. I honestly cant think of how you could get better versions. Sure, we have some of the biggest names in Shimon & Benny L, Acen, and Fracus & Darwin. But big names doesnt always equal big remixes. In this case it totally does. And then, my two KF artists did remixes that sit perfectly right next to these huge artists, and I couldnt be prouder of them and more grateful to everyone involved in this whole release.

So yeah. Perhaps I am over hyping? Perhaps I am biased because I love the tune and everyone involved? That might be true, but I also think I am right and these are the best remixes ever.

At least…so far 🙂

PS oh wait, I forgot to mention that out of the blue Acen did an awesome promotion video for it just because he is a proper legend! Track it down and check it out if you can…


Get Hyper for the “Hyper On Experience” Experience!


For the impatient….here is a link to the Bundle! For the rest, read on

I sometimes think I must be one of the luckiest people alive. I mean, I have made a career in the music I love – thats an incredible thing in itself – but recently I have had the honour of releasing a brand new Acen EP. Who would have thought? And that came after releasing music from Liquid, and Sublove, and of course, Hyper On Experience. Thats 4 of the most influential hardcore artists to ever grace the rave scene, not to mention personal heroes of mine. I would never have dreamed that my little label, started all the way back in 1993, would get to host such hardcore luminaries, such makers and shapers of the music we all love.

And if that wasn’t enough, I now get to finally reveal to you a deal long in the making and almost  overwhelming in scope. As you might have guessed by the title, this blog post talks about one of my all time favourite artists: Hyper On Experience. And it is super exciting because it contains the details of:

1. Forthcoming represses from the back catalogue.

2. Brand new remixes from some truly huge names in the hardcore and d’n’b scenes.

3. Exclusive unreleased material from back in the day and alternate versions of tracks.

4. Brand new music.

5. Merchandise.

6. A remix competition of a classic tune with an unbeatable prize for the winner.

7. And me, being a fanboy.

Okay, so the last point is probably not a highlight, more just an unavoidable fact, but for the rest, hold tight cos I kid you not when I say that this is possibly the most exciting thing to happen in a long time, especially to me! But I think for a lot of people this is pretty amazing stuff…

I am not gonna bang on about how Hyper On Experience have been the single most influential act for me as a hardcore artist. To quote the Dothraki, “it is known”. And I am not going to bang on about how excited I was when I not only got a remix from Hyper On Experience, but managed to get a brand new EP from them too (we have a few left if you missed it: KF83 – Hyper On Experience – The Family Man EP). To quote Star Trek – “To Infinity, and Beyond” or something. I don’t watch Star Trek. Anyway. Those were huge events in my personal and record label life and I was content that there would be few other events like that. I am a lucky man to be able to work with, and dare I say become friends with, one of my heroes. To ask for more never even crossed my mind. Although I did ask for another new EP, because of course I did lol.

What I did not know is that Alex from Hyper On Experience had spoken on my behalf to Moving Shadow, and the end result was a deal which, when all was sorted caused me to lay a dragon egg. I didn’t actually, but, you know. I probably could have.

Basically, Moving Shadow and Kniteforce Records have sorted out an epic licensing deal, giving us permission to remix, repress and rerelease the first four Hyper On Experience EPs.

My excitement about this was so vast that for a while I couldn’t quite see all the ramifications. But before I could…Alex also told me that he had some unreleased Hyper On tunes from old DAT tapes (WHAT! MUST HAVE!!!), AND was working on new material as well.

At which point, I had to have a little sit down.

But the thing about artists such as Hyper On Experience, and really any good artist, is that retreading old ground, while fun and sometimes important, is also sort of “eh” because the interest is usually in progression and exploration of the music. So while of course we wanted to remaster the first 4 EPs, we didn’t just want to do standard represses. So while these vinyls are remasters of the originals, we decided on doing “reimagined” versions of the first 4 EPs.

If your brain has only now got to the “hold up, wait a minute, doesn’t that include Lord Of The Null Lines?” then YES IT DOES and just like me, you have suddenly realised one of the biggest and most classic anthems ever is going to be remixed and remastered and rereleased on Kniteforce Records.

Another sit down and some breathing into a paper bag.

But shut up. We will get to that in due course. Lord of the Null Lines is a total tune obviously, but the whole of Hyper On Experience’s back catalogue is loaded with amazing music – Monarch Of The Glen, Timestretch, Half Steppa, H.E Anthem…the list goes on…and look, now I am losing track. Rewind.

And thats the problem really, this deal is huge, and has led to some huge things going on, and theres no good way to really tell you all the things, and anyway some of the things are not quite ready to be revealed. So let me simply tell you what is 100% confirmed and when and how and etc:

In May, we will be releasing the first two of a number of Hyper On Experience releases individually, and as a special bundle. They are:

KF95 – Fun For All The Family EP (Remastered / Remixed / Reimagined)

KF96 – Keep It In The Famliy EP  (Remastered / Remixed / Reimagined)

I have the test presses here. They sound lovely. The artwork is at the top of this post!

While you will be able to buy each vinyl individually, we also have a  bundle version, which is loaded with superb extras. It will contain these 2 vinyls, and 2 exclusive CDs, featuring the digital remasters from these EPs, and unreleased versions of the tracks, and bonus remixes of the tracks. And digital downloads of the tracks in wav and mp3 format, of course. And an exclusive Hyper On Experience slipmat which is gorgeous. And the samples to the aforementioned Remix competition (dont worry, the remix competition will be open to everyone in the near future, no purchase needed. Its just the bundle people get them early is all).

Below is some artwork to get you excited, as if you arent enough already….

The more observant of you will notice a few things. Firstly, the artwork is amazing. We asked our resident KF artist Spudgunjuice to do reimagined versions of Flytronix’s outstanding artwork that featured on the original EPs. We wanted it to be the same but different, because the EPs are the same…but different. Then, your eyes might have wandered toward the track listing. Whats that on the Fun For All The Family EP? A Liquid remix of Watchusnow? Yes indeed. It is an already brilliant tune remixed by one of the old skools finest artists. You will love it, I am certain. And on the Keep It In The Family EP, I had the honour of remixing A Certain Emotion. It might not be the tune most people would instantly know, BUT it is the first Hyper On Experience tune I ever heard, and it is the reason I became such a fan. So when this deal happened, that is the one I wanted to remix the most.

These EPs aren’t simply straight represses. The original tunes have been lovingly remastered, and on each EP, one track has been remixed from the original line up. Anyone who buys the vinyl will get these 4 tracks from the vinyl, plus the original version of the track that has been remixed as part of the downloadable digital files.

And then the CDs contain never before released alternate versions of the tracks and brand new remixes as well. These CDs will only be in the bundle, never sold separately.

So thats the first thing we are rolling out. Hold onto your hats though, because after that comes:

KF97 – The Family We Never Had EP  (Remastered / Remixed / Reimagined)


KF98 – Deaf In The Family EP  (Remastered / Remixed / Reimagined)

and of course…

KF99 – Lord Of The Null Lines Remixes (10” Double Pack)

KF99R – Disturbance Remixes

The artwork isnt quite ready for that one…I have already revealed some of the remixers for the first two EPs, but trust me, they are the tip of the iceberg, and it gets REALLY insane as it progresses. There are remixes of Monarch Of The Glen from two of the best in the business. AND an alternate original version of that tune. I keep writing and deleting things because on the one hand this is so amazing, and on the other hand, some things need to just be kept quiet for a little longer. But I will tell you, the Lord Of The Null Lines remixes will blow you away – we have spared no expense on getting the best in the business onto this. Not to mention the Disturbance remixes…

Oh, but thats not all. Not by a long shot.

We have a bunch of unreleased Hyper On Experience tracks made back in the day, along with some new material he has been working on….these are planned to feature on their own vinyl double pack and CD triple pack combination, which is, incidentally, where the winner of the aforementioned Remix competition will be featured…I have heard the unreleased tracks and they are brilliant and are of course authentic to the era they were made in. Then there are the new tunes, which are just stunning. Seriously, they are so good, I wish I could include one or two in the teaser clip below….and maybe I did? haha…

Details of the remix competition is being finalised. But the track in question will be “Timestretch” – one of my all time favourite Hyper On Experience tracks, and one that is undisputably brilliant. The prize will be the winning remix getting a full CD and digital release, and perhaps a vinyl release too. The competition will be open to everyone EXCEPT those who have already had a remix commissioned for this enormous project.

Details will be announced for that very shortly, so keep ya eyes open!

Honestly it has taken me about 6 attempts to write this blog, because there is so much going on and so much to tell, and so much to not tell just yet…I havent even got to the Best Of project or plenty of other exciting elements….But for now, I hope this makes you as excited as I am…oops, another dragon egg.

Now listen to this teaser and get hyper!

Tracks in the clip are a mystery, but…:

01. A Remix

02. A Remix

03. A Remaster

04. A Remix

05. Original early 90’s Unreleased

06. A Remix

07. A Remaster

08. Brand New Material

09. An Unreleased Alternate Version

10. A Remix (!!!)


Nice one,



OMG ACEN VINYL…But…Wait, what? How? and other questions….

Okay, so for the impatient, here are the links to buy this very limited vinyl…

For UK and Europe and the rest of the world (depending on exchange rate and postage costs) :

For USA and rest of the world (depending on exchange rate and postage costs):

Alright, lets get down to business. I know a large percentage of you were expecting the next Kniteforce Pre-Sale to be the brand new Hyper On Experience EPs. And that was what I was expecting too, ha ha. We have a wicked bundle ready to go on that, with 12″ vinyl remastered represses of the Fun For All The Family EP and the Keep It In The Family EP (Plus Liquid and Luna-C Remixes, 2 CDs of bonus content and a superb Hyper On Experience slipmat). And that is due to go up for pre-sale at the end of the month as planned.

But the Acen vinyl came about in a bit of a strange way. I have been emailing with Acen for a while now, doing my very best to tempt him onto Kniteforce as I felt like 1. He would find the perfect home here and 2. He is one of my all time heros and 3. WHAT ELSE WOULD I DO??? ITS ACEN!!! ha ha.

Other labels were also wooing (theres a word we don’t use anymore) Acen, and it ended up with him putting the digital releases for the two versions of “Play 2092” with the lovely chaps at Hardcore Energy. However, Hardcore Energy were unable to get a vinyl sorted out, and perhaps it was underestimated how much people would want the vinyl? So a few days ago, Acen asked me if I could help out in that department, and I of course said “nah”.

Haha, as if. I jumped at the opportunity.

But it had to be done fast because otherwise the momentum gets lost. And I would need to be able to offer the digitals with the vinyl (24 bit wav and 320MP3) and I wanted them remastered by Jon Doe cos he does a stunning job, and also, I also wanted to have the bonus content of Return To 2092 added to both the vinyl and the digital. Hardcore Energy were very gracious and Acen wanted to move on it, so we got the whole thing organised in under 24 hours.

So here we are. The new vinyl is up for presale now, it has been sent to be cut, and I have pulled in every favour possible so that the vinyl will be turned around and in your hands really quickly!

I am hoping this will be the first of many new Acen releases, and I have been told he is working with Dyce as well (The House Crew) so who knows what the future could hold?

All I know is, this week I have been working with Acen for this release, Hyper On Experience for the next release and as part of a run of represses and new material, with Sublove and Liquid also lining up releases in the near future. How amazing is that? I am working with my heros, and it is god damn brilliant! You can check out the artwork for forthcoming KFs below…

In the meantime, if you are not interested in the vinyl and only want to get the digital files of Play 2092 Part 1 and Part 2, you can do so HERE

So stay tuned…there is a whole lot more to come….









All The Rave & Remix Records Relaunched…

Hello Everyone!

Its a blog post, which can only mean something big enough is happening that it requires a blog post ha ha. And its true, this is one of those “big things are happening so let me tell you about it” times. But where to start? I need to talk about Remix Records AND All The Rave….So lets start with All The Rave as Remix Records is pretty much well known anyway, even if the relaunch has a slightly different approach to what the old RR used to have!

All The Rave is two things. It is our brand new compilation album series, and our brand new bandcamp website. They serve different needs but with the same aim: To work more with other labels and to increase the opportunities within our scene.
I have wanted to be able to sell other peoples records for a while now. Kniteforce has a good system and superb customers (looking at you!) and I want other labels to be able to reap the beniefits of that, plus its just good business to be able to sell other labels. And anyway, I…want to. Which is my main reason for doing the things I do anyway ha ha.
However, the Kniteforce Bandcamp page isnt ideal for that, what with it being, you know, the KNITEFORCE bandcamp page. So a new site was needed. And so, All The Rave…You can visit it here:

This is a separate site from the kniteforce bandcamp site, and right now, has only 5 releases on it, but they are all significant. There are the three Remix Records EPs, the first in the series of the All The Rave 12” and Double CD compilations, and an EP from our dear friends Try Unity. We will be adding to the site on a regular basis with new labels and releases from our friends and more, with the hope of it becoming a one stop shop for all the good stuff 🙂

So thats the website. Meanwhile, the All The Rave compilation series is a new venture we are trying out. The idea is to make an album based on a certain year in the rave world, and we have started with 1991 which is a significant year for me as it was when i first started to really produce rave music. However, I wanted to avoid making the anthem bashing / obvious compilation albums we have all heard before. I was more interested in making something that might have occurred in an alternate universe. So the album contains some original music from that year, but remastered. And some tunes that came out later, but have been remixed into the style of that year. And some brand new music that sounds like it was made back then. And everything in between, as long as it fits the overall ethic – a set you might have heard in 1991. The result is something quite unique I think.
The compilation album idea came first, and it is the first time we have ventured into using material from our friends outside of the KF stable, such as Dj Jedi and Try Unity. But of course there are tunes from some of our original old skool KF artists like Liquid, Sublove and Hyper On Experience. And then from our new artists as well, such as Wislov and Ant To Be and Shadowplay. Not to mention Idealz and Alex Jungle and Saiyan and Lowercase…basically its an series where we can all work together to make something a bit special.

Still, when we needed a new website, it made sense to use the same name, because now we have an album with Try Unity on it, and are also selling their EP on the store, and we already work with Dj Jedi and it opens up a lot of possibilities. Plus, it has a nice synergy, you see?

I have hopes that this compilation series will eventually serve as a calling card for our new “retro” rave scene, but if not, it will instead be an amazing series of albums featuring a huge selection of excellent artists and will breathe new life into the idea of compilation albums as they have, in my opinion, become a bit stagnant.

Also, its at a bargain price – at least for the first month.£19.91 is the year, £19.91 is the price for a double CD and a vinyl 12”? It seemed…fitting.

I really hope you will support the series AND the website.
And to encourage people…we decided Remix Records should be exclusive to All The Rave. And that makes sense too – Remix Records was always more user friendly than some of the Kniteforce releases lol. Yet the new Remix Records is serving a slightly different purpose to the old one, a purpose which fits the entire ethos of the All The Rave site.
Yes, the new RR is, like All The Rave, a way to work with our friends. The label will serve a s a place for guests to release music. Kniteforce has always been focussed on having a somewhat exclusive roster, but that means it has made it harder to work with long term friends such as Al Storm, or to find a suitable place to put an EP by one of the few MCs I have enjoyed working with on a professional level AND also like very much on a personal level, MC Whizzkid.
So we have the first two new releases on Remix Records from those two hardcore luminaries, and they are both AMAZING EPs. True old skool with a huge feel good factor, hands in the air full on rave – just like the original Remix Records was.

The other purpose of Remix Records is to allow some of the original RR artists a place to release music. So you can look forward to new EPs from Dj Brisk, The Timespan, and others. Its gonna be epic, basically. It already is.

Oh, and to sweeten the deal? the last few “Six Days” Remix EPs, which were an exclusive freebie for the regular KF buyers, are on there at a normal price. Once gone, they are gone! AND if you meander on to you will find a discount code for the two pre sale Remix Records EPs!

So here is where I would say “please support this” but you know what, if all this goodness doesnt excite you, let the music speak for itself. We already have 3 other Remix Records EPs on the go, and two more All The Rave compilation albums in the works, and are talking to 4 other labels who want to go through the new site. These first few will let us know if we are swimming in the right direction, or heading towards the titanic lol.

Either way, these are very exciting times!

Nice one, Luna-C


New Liquid EP Plus…Legends are awesome…


Today I want to tell you about the new Liquid double pack, because of course I do. The pre sale opens Monday 25th Feb for both the bonus bundle and single versions.

And then I wanted to say that I am a raver and a musician, and I am also a record label, so obviously I want to be able to sell the music I put out. But one of the true joys of my job is that while it is a job, its also not like, miserable work. Often I find myself as excited as you are about a new release. And as well as those 3 things, I am a fan, but we will get on to that in a bit.

Anyway, this release totally deserves the excitement. All the excitement.

I warned you all that 2019 was going to be an exceptional year, and it is already, what with the huge success of the last few bundles. But now we are moving into the next level with forthcoming EPs from Hyper On Experience, Sublove, Whizzkid, Al Storm and too many others to mention, and we kick it off with this absolute winner of a release, KF92 – The Spacemonkey EP, by Liquid.

This is an 8 track double pack EP (Or LP? We could never quite decide!) of some of the finest old skool hardcore out there. Beautifully produced, and perfectly executed, this is old skool as it should be done. I love Monofuntion particularly, because it takes me back to the early years when I first got into raving – R&S records and Frank De Wulf and all those wicked Euro releases. But then you have Good Love, a piano anthem if ever there was one, and Clerkenwell Sound, which is like the early UK sound of jungle before there was such a thing.

All in all, this is a brilliant EP and I am proud to be releasing it…which brings me to…being a fan.

I do not often fanboy, and not in public. I have a reputation to maintain after all (ha!) but I did want to mention something that does not get talked about very often, because in one way, it doesn’t matter at all, but in another way, it is totally significant.

I have recently been speaking to Njoi and to Acen, hoping to tempt them into releasing music on Kniteforce. And of course there is this Liquid EP, and Hyper On Experience and Sublove releases already and more to come…Thats 5 artists that I have always admired greatly, and whose records I bought and loved before there was even the consideration of the possibility or perhaps meeting them one day. I contacted Sublove for the first Kniteforce EP back in 1992, after being turned down for a remix by NRGs manager (which was fair enough, I don’t think I came across as knowing what I was doing, because I didn’t. I also hadn’t actually made any music at that point, and did not mention Smart Es lol). Anyway, I remember being in absolute awe that Sublove would do a remix for me. It never even occurred to me at that time to ask Liquid – that would be like me asking, I dont know, who is super famous nowadays? Kanye? He seems like a wally, but will do for this example. Back in 1992, asking Liquid to do a remix for me would be like me asking Kanye to do a remix for me now. Except, you know, I wouldn’t want a remix from Kanye, he always looks like he is sulking. Look, analogies don’t bear close examination, okay? The point it, I thought of Liquid, and Hyper On and Njoi, and Acen, and the majority of the rave artists from back then as so stratospherically far above me that the mere idea of trying to contact them never even entered my head. Getting the courage to speak to Sublove was hard enough – and at least his phone number was on the record label, and I suspect I was stoned out of my head at the time to get the nerve up. And besides, back in those days, getting the contact was a mission and a half. If it wasn’t on the label, then…well….nothing. That was that.

Anyway, my point is, I find myself here in 2019 actually working with these people, and heres the thing: They are nice. They are really nice people. And importantly, they have a deep and genuine love for this music. You might wonder…How can I know that? After all, I met Sublove back in the early 90’s but I have still yet to meet any of the rest, although we talk online and by email, obviously. And yet I can say with absolute confidence that these people just love this music and want to make it.

I can say this because, what they do now is one hell of a lot smaller than what they did then. It never gets talked about, but all the artists I have listed have sold a HUGE number of records, multiple times.

And yet, here they are, making this music for a tiny fraction of the audience it used to have. It never gets talked about. And thats because….they don’t care. I mean, of course they (we – can I include myself a little bit?) would all like to be selling 10,000 instead of 300 units…but…the thing they really want, is to be able to make and release music at all. Getting paid is icing on the cake, and sometimes the small amount of money it makes is essential simply because you have to actually survive in the world and it takes time to make music – time that could be spent on things that really earn money instead. And yet, they still do it.

This is true of everyone making the music of course, but I think its interesting, and admirable, when you see artists who have such a great legacy and history still absolutely wanting to just make the music they fell in love with right at the start of long industrious careers, regardless of how the world and the audience has changed. And I have always thought that this purity in desire is echoed in the music that gets made.

I also think that this purity and honest desire to make this music is what will make it get huge. Always, new music and new scenes grow from the dedicated who love it. So I have faith that this scene will grow and grow. And in a few years time, EPs like this will be much sought after as rarities with their limited pressing. But thats for another day.

For now, I just wanted to do a little bit about this great new Liquid EP, and a little bit about how wonderful it is for me to be working with some of the scenes greatest. They say you should never meet your heroes. Well bollocks. I have met most of mine and they are fucking awesome.


Oh, and if my review is a little biased, here is another one that I only paid $14,0000000000000000.03 dollars for:

Liquid-Space Monkey EP


Nice one,


Chris / Luna-C





Lets talk about the new bundle and 2019…


I rarely do blogs, but I feel like sometimes I should. And this is one of those times. There is quite a lot to say, and quite a lot happening, but my biggest concern is that we have a new bundle about to drop on the 28th of January, and I worry some of you will miss it. Seriously. Not because it sells out, although it should, and it may well do so as things have been selling more, and faster recently. No, I worry because even in this day and age, the power to sell a thing often comes down to the name selling it, and this bundle does not have a “big” name act.

Yet this bundle is simply superb. Much of it was put together while I was between houses, meaning I had to listen to the tracks on crappy laptop speakers and also had to just kinda trust the artists in question got it right. It was only in December when I got the test presses that I was able to listen to them as they are supposed to sound – with good speakers, and loud.

And I have to say, all three of these vinyls are fucking fantastic. Its hard to convey quite how proud I am of all three – not that I had much to do with the content on any of them bar one track – but I really feel what we have here is the very essence of what Kniteforce is about. In a general sense, all 3 records are very well produced – I mean, that comes as standard, but still, credit where its due because we have a debuting artist in Abyss and in Disrupta – neither of which have had vinyl releases before although both have been producing for a while. But when I say well produced I mean the textures, the feel, the emotions they convey, are spot on. And all three vinyls are very different, yet quintessentially Kniteforce in their diversity. Lastly, all three look exactly as they should – which seems like an obvious thing, but it really isn’t. I am gonna break it down one by one…lets start with Abyss…

KF89 – Abyss – From the Depths EP

This EP is just brilliant. I had always felt Kniteforce lacked an artist that specialised in the darker, more jungle edge, and it felt like we needed one. Its a style I personally love, but…its very difficult to do it well. Many people either go so dark it becomes a parody, or its just clever amens. I love a clever amen, but without context, its a producers way to show off rather than an essential part of a tune. Abyss gets it exactly right. His debut EP continues on from his first showing on Death To Digital, once again showcasing a real talent for the dark style with Wicker Man and Satan, two tunes which retain the excitement and feel of the original era without sounding like they are trying too hard. In a nutshell, these two sound like they came from then, rather than that they wish they did. And those are the B sides! Should have done a double A on this…didn’t think of it. Oh well.

Meanwhile the A side shows that Abyss is far from a one trick pony – the lead track, Bad Boy is proper jungle. Its so good that its impossible to time. This could have come out in pretty much any year since the birth of Jungle and would smash the dancefloor to bits. This tune is large. Fucking large as hell.

Finally, there is Losing My Mind, which once again shows that Abyss can turn his hand to a piano track and do it extremely well. Some people can do dark amen styled things well. Some can do Jungle too. I cant think off hand of anyone who can also do proper old skool piano and get all three styles spot on.

Next up…

Breed23 – Wislov – From Another World EP

This is Wislovs second EP, and as time passes I find myself more and more impressed with his work. His first EP was great, no doubt. But…and hear me out…I have been making hardcore a long while. Making a good piano and breaks tune is my bread and butter, and like bread and butter, its kind of…easy. Its very hard to make an amazing piano tune, but its relatively easy to make a good one. So what I love to see in my artists is the ability to transcend that style. To either take the piano and do something new and exciting with how it sits in a track – Alex Jungle is a master at this, and Shoreman is racing up to that level as well – or to be able to make it so classic it hurts – hello Liquid, Pete Cannon and Ant To Be. And Wislov does here what fellow label cohort Ant To Be did. both were signed on the strength of their “Kniteforcey” sound, but I also felt both could do so much more. And here we are, with both of them doing exactly that.

Wislov has honed his sound and produced something sublime. This new EP is darker than the previous one, and more serious. It is more underground. And it is much better for it. Subtle yet in your face, this is the music of my early rave days, it is an EP full of tunes that make the night special. I literally had chills listening to it. It made me feel like  I did in my first raving years at Labrynth. All the tunes are amazing, and the drumwork is brilliant. This EP remains uplifiting without ever resorting to obvious tricks or easy options. It is superb.

Lastly we have:

KF91 – Death To Digital Volume 4

Sorry for the format change – I dont mind writing a long blog but I will be damned if I will waste any more time with my fecking Kniteforce Soundcloud account and its issues lol

So, Paul Bradley. While we all know he can do a very good old skool hardcore tune, this is his second appearance on this series, and once again, he switches styles. Who knew he could do such a perfect jungle tune? Not I. When he sent me this, I felt like saying “wait, are you fucking with me?” because he obviously has a real talent for it and he had never sent me anything like this before. And this is after showing he could smash a ’97 4×4 styled bouncy tune out of the park on D2D2. Versatility is a great thing, and to do it so well…amazing.

Meanwhile, the ever reclusive Alex Jungle sent me this track via email and was all like “I made this, whatever”. It is easily one of his best. its slightly simpler than his usual work, but the clarity of the vision is amazing, and it is the perfect piano anthem. I absolutely love it, and I know you will too. It couldn’t be more Kniteforcey if it was a song about a little man wearing a kangol hat and a peace medallion.

Its hard to talk about my own work, but Mr Arthur and I really pulled this one off. Sorry.  But we did. Its a classic sounding Timespan tune, yet the elements Mr Arthur bought to the table are WHY it is that – supplying the perfect samples and arrangement to  what is basically an original Remix Records release that never was.

Lastly, Disrupta. The dude is new to the label, but I think you will be hearing a lot more from him. His sound is both dense and simple, heavy and strong, and a perfect fit for Kniteforce in every respect. With his debut track on Vinyl is Better 6 he showed he had skill, and with this first vinyl release, he underlines that he is here and is a bold new artist on the roster. I cant wait for his forthcoming EP.


So this is why I dfont want people to miss this bundle. We have a ton of amazing stuff in 2019 – new music from Liquid, Pete Cannon, Dj Force & The Evolution (yup) reissues and remixes and new versions of the older Hyper On Experience tunes (yup) as well as unreleased and new tracks. We have an Idealz EP and Legacy EP, more from Sublove, a Luna-C legacy EP. Remix Records is back, with Al Storm and Whizzkid on forthcoming EPs. Ant To Be and TNO have EPs coming on Knitebreed. Malice is back. Influential is back. Saiyan has a line up of KFA releases that will blow you away.

There is a tsunami of amazing content coming, and these first 3 EPs are just the first taste. But dont miss the first taste. You will regret it…

PS Wislovs album is god damn excellent too….

Exclusive Digital Downloads:

We have a bunch of things that are not quite ready for the bonus content…will add a full list as each thing becomes certain, but we have a few ore tunes including the amazing Sanxion remix of Dj Brisk “Airhead” as featured on the Brisk Mix CD…


The Triple Threat is a celebration of 100 releases on Kniteforce, and close to 100 on KFA and…some…on Knitebreed as well! That was the excuse that triggered the whole thing you know. And for the pedantic: We just cut and have test presses of KF88 – so thats 88 Kniteforce releases. Plus there was also KF18R and KF15R and KF21R – so thats 91. Then there is KFSE 1-4, bringing the total to 95. And then there are the 4 KFLPs that were on vinyl bringing it to 99. And then…err….oh, yes, then this! KF100. Phew, that was close lol.

Ands yes, I did those sums for the first time just now ha ha!

But really, it is the culmination of many many long months of hard work and planning. It took a long time to organise because the idea is simple in principle and complex in execution. Basically, each of the 12″ in the triple vinyl pack represents one of the 3 main KF labels – Kniteforce, KFA and Knitebreed. Each vinyl contains four tracks from one of the labels, and the tracks are remixed by the other two labels. So the Kniteforce vinyl has 2 tracks remixed by Knitebreed artists, and 2 remixed by KFA artists, and so on and so forth.

It was tricky because JUST the vinyl means we are talking about 24 artists. And of course, like all of my ideas, it quickly spiralled out of control and we had the CD idea and so on until the whole project became massively complex with over 48 artists involved. I think. I am not counting them. But its a lot. Anyway, the point is, it became so complex that it is actually…lets see…6 months late? Maybe more. Haha, brilliant.

It was worth the wait.

Because I think we have compiled one of the most interesting and era covering hardcore LPs ever. And not only that, it is fucking brilliant. You can tell I mean it, because I did a swear, which I never normally do.

The Triple Threat has artists from 1991 – 2018, of every era and style. It has the very famous, such as Liquid, and Hyper On Experience (who I got to remix!!!…Yeah, I bent the rules a bit, but Luna-C has appeard on KFA so it was that Luna-C that remixed H.O.E, not Kniteforce Luna-C, and if any of you think I was going to pass up the opportunity to remix my greatest influence and hero, then I dont know what to say to you lol…but I digress)…where were we? Oh yes, so big names from the old skool, Liquid, Hyper On, as well as KF old skoolers like Dj Ham and Future Primitive…and Me, I guess? Then there are KFA artists such as Idealz and The Panacea and Empyreal and Saiyan of course. And then the newer artist to the label such as Paul Bradley and Pete Cannon and Clayfighter and Mannik…and…theres a lot of us, it turns out. But what is really great is how unique we all are – Shoreman is not Audio X is not The Timespan and Shadowplay is not Doughboy is not Alex Jungle.

So I think this album very well represents the “alternate” sound of hardcore, but I do not think this sound it is going to remain “alternate” for much longer, if it still is, which it isnt or might not be. Errr. Moving on…The excitement for The Triple Threat is off the charts, we have had to barcode it because it is maybe going to go into Amazon and HMV etc, and once you put a big name like Brisk as the featured Dj on the mix? Well, you are planting a flag in the ground and saying “listen up mofo’s, we are here, and this is what hardcore is.” Sure, some people wont agree, but they arent reading this.


And when they do, all I have to say is “Welcome!” ha ha. I honestly belive that the future of hardcore is here, now, and it is inclusive in sound. It is old skool. It is new skool. It is True Skool. It might even be Ghoul Skool ha ha. All I know for sure is, it is what we have always been about. Good music, genre defining and defying, fun and serious, complex and simple.

It is Kniteforce. We are 100. This is the perfect album for it!

While I am here, I want to thank everyone who has worked so hard the last few months to make this happen. A big thank you to Sara for the artwork cos god damn it is beautiful. To Shane Saiyan for all the help in compiling and getting the remixes in and generally being a soundboard on how we should do things. Idealz for the hard work he is about to do packing and shipping everything ha ha! Glyn Lowercase for all the promotion on his show, and all the KF radio crew for the support come to that.

A massive thank you to very artist on this release – too mamy to name, and that is humbling in itself, but a special shout out to a few who are friends of the label more than on the label – Edd Jedi, top fella! Sanxion – Your Airhead remix is superb and is a special bonus for those who buy the bundle! M-Project, you know we love you! Darwin of course, big up sir! Your remix of Alk-e-d is so good, it appears here as well as on the Alk-e-d Legacy!

A massive thank you to my old mucker Dj Brisk – I am very grateful you mixed this album, because not only are you one of the most skilled Djs in our scene who could handle such a wide array of styles and speeds, you are also one of the original KF crew.

I am sure I have missed people. Liquid and Hyper On and Pete Cannon for being so very generous with thier music and there time…Paul Bradley for wearing a cowboy hat. Shadowplay for yacht rental. Everyone at Curved and SRD. That bloke with the limp. I dont know, I am very tired.

But it was worth it. I couldn’t be more grateful or more proud. And I hope you all enjoy this release as much as I did making it!

Nice one,

Chris / Luna-C


The Ghoul Skool: Volume One

Good evening boils and ghouls, it’s your master of scare-emonies, Saiyan here!

Okay that’s enough of that, I can only talk like the Cryptkeeper for so long, that’s harder than it looks.

It is with the greatest pleasure that I announce a project I’ve been working on basically since I became manager of KFA, GHOUL SKOOL!

See Halloween is my favourite holiday. Always has been, always will be. I love horror movies, I love decorations, I LOVE CANDY, Halloween is the best. I also love how around this time of year, there tends to be a lot of spooky themed music released. So I thought to myself…well why don’t we do that? Fuck it, we’re doing that.

So I set to work.

The original plan called for an EP, nothing too flashy. It started life (unlife?) as The Ghoul Skool EP, a play on the True Skool EP series, because I am brilliant. I put the call out to all of the artists on the Kniteforce, KFA, and Knitebreed rosters for material, expecting to hopefully fill our four tracks on the EP, and add a remix from a friend of mine who hasn’t done anything in a while and would have been a cool surprise (which didn’t work out, but one day…)

That is not what happened. The entire Kniteforce Family loved the idea, and a big chunk of the roster immediately committed to submitting material. The Ghoul Skool EP quickly became something more akin to a Vinyl Is Better-sized album release, the first such project to be released since I took on running KFA (but not the last, stay tuned). It wasn’t without its bumps in the road, my own track wasn’t finished in time (which led to Demogorgon becoming one of the only Kniteforce vinyl tracks to be released on another format, which actually works out super well because it fits the theme perfectly), people had computer failures, all sorts of shenanigans. But ultimately it was completed, the art was done, it was sent off to manufacture, and here we are!


10 exclusive tracks, plus one previously only available on vinyl, served up hot and fresh (or cold and dead) just in time for all your Halloween-themed set needs!

But that’s not all! See I wanted this release to be special, and I thought to myself…self, what’s a more interesting way to promote it? Clips are all well and good but we always do clips, we should do something else. And I said self, you’re right! Also I’m talking to myself and this is probably a bad sign. So rather than clips, I decided to do a full-blown promo mix, containing all of the tracks on the album, as well as a carefully cultivated selection of material from across the three labels that fit the theme. Here’s the tracklist.

Ghoul Skool Mix

A downloadable copy of the mix is included as a special free bonus with every purchase of Ghoul Skool, via a link printed directly on a Nothing Sheet that comes with the CD!

Downloadable copies of the mix are meant to be exclusive to people who buy the album, so do me a solid and don’t be the kind of wally who rips the super low bitrate streaming version from Soundcloud. Don’t be that guy. Nobody likes that guy.

So all told, Ghoul Skool comprises an unmixed CD album (in shiny new packaging, if you’ve seen the Alk-e-d Legacy CD, it’s a variation on that), a bonus DJ mix, and of course, access to the tracks in digital format via the Nothing Sheet!

So when can you get it?

KFALP01 – Ghoul Skool releases October 1st, 2018 on this site right here for US customers, and Kniteforce Bandcamp for the rest of the world. It will be available for the so-low-it’s-six-feet-under price of £9.99, or $13 USD.

One thing to note, is Ghoul Skool will be releasing the same day that the long-awaited Triple Threat album FINALLY goes up for preorder. If you want Ghoul Skool to ship ahead of the Triple Threat’s expected ship date, you will have to make a separate order. If you order together, Ghoul Skool will not ship until The Triple Threat does. If you order both albums and NEED the tracks before then because you have a Halloween-themed event to play at, hit me up at with proof of purchase and a link to the event and I’ll sort you out. ONLY if you NEED them. I don’t have time to manually send files to everyone. I hope to be able to add automatic dual ownership for releases like this at some point in the future, but for now this is how it’s gotta go.

Well that’s all for me, tune in next week for Luna-C to finally blow the lid off The Triple Threat 😉

Keep it hardcore!
