Like many producers who grew up in Yorkshire during the early '90s, Paul Woolford has fond memories of Sheffield-based pirate radio station Fantasy FM. As the cover - based on the station's distinctive logo - makes clear, Forever More is little less than a love letter to the rave-era pirate. While the title track sparkles with vintage Italo-house attitude - think bold piano riffs, bouncy grooves and extended solos - it's the accompanying "No Requests (Special Request Fantasy FM Mix)" that really hits home hard. Under the hardcore and jungle influenced Special Request moniker, Woolford delivers a retro-futurist smasher that effortless joins the dots between Yorkshire bleep, early hardcore, and the Belgian rave records that followed. Brilliantly, it also finishes with a two-minute advert for a party in Bridlington, lifted from an old Fantasy FM recording.
