Except, in a baffling and depressing turn of events, I do appear to have lost my happy hardcore CDs. I was writing a post, and I thought I should upload a particular track to illustrate it. So, I start looking through my CDs, and there’s no DJ Sy, no Hixxy, no Unknown And The Evolution. I can’t really explain it. Did I leave them in England? Did I really prepare to move a couple of thousand miles by discarding these CDs, pausing only to rip a copy of Raver’s Choice No. 7? Or perhaps they were stolen? Did the people who pinched my laptop also rifle through my CDs looking for mid-90s dance music from the north of England? Neither explanation is very satisfying.
