Missing (Kemet Crew)BACK TO ARCHIVE
In this episode I’ll be speaking with Missing aka Sam Gordon. Sam had one of the biggest pirate radio tracks I can remember in 1995 with The Box Reopens on Kemet Records – A remix of a track originally by Noise Factory. Honestly, I heard this track so much on the airwaves back then and it got me thinking, did it get as much play in the clubs and thus did pirate radio offer a space for tracks to grow and gain an audience outside of clubs.
This turned out to be a really fascinating conversation and we discussed his unique approach to expensive studio time in the 90s – which included literally writing out drum patterns on paper to save time. We talk about the political climate at the end of the 80s and into the 90s that may have been the breeding ground for the DIY and punk nature of Pirate Radio and we end up drawing similarities between Jungle and the current sound of UK Drill.
