Bluff Records back at it!
After reissuing the first Voy-E EP, obviously the same had to happen with this one. Originally released in very limited quantities back in 2001, this is the second and only other Voy-E EP that has ever seen the light of day. It came out on 12” via Hoodwink Records, and was one of the last releases the label put out before shutting down. Due to its scarcity, the record has been selling on the second-hand market for crazy money (over £140!).
This EP (like the last one) is a product of the Florida Breakbeat scene which was pretty big across the US during the mid to late 90s – a scene in which the original label was heavily involved. The tracks have been sourced from the original master CD thanks to Hoodwink Records’ owner, and have been re-mastered and cut by The Exchange.
It took 3-4 months to track these guys down last year. Bluff Recors finally reached the original label owner on LinkedIn – of all places – after trying many other avenues. They had no idea that the Voy-E EP’s were in such high demand and were absolutely stoked about doing the reissues.
Both Voy-E and the original label owner still live in the states in North Carolina, and haven’t done anything music related in nearly two decades. It really means a lot to them that people are still enjoying their work.
