FACT mix 250 is a time machine. It’s destination? 1991-94. This time machine has been built by 2 Bad Mice, the original nutters whose early productions – produced 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, they took their name from Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Two Bad Mice, about two good-f0r-nowt 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.
Our 250th episode is something of a landmark, and we’re delighted to have Sean, Si and Rhodesy behind the decks for the occasion. Mixed with deadly precision, it’s essentially a greatest hits of hardcore and early jungle and we’re hard-pressed to think of a 2011 FACT mix this year that we’ve enjoyed quite this much.
