afaik = as far as i know
(sorry, i thought everyone knows this)
olly - the "hardest" techno i can think of being played in ibiza would probably be when chris liebing would invite felix körcher or something similar...but hardcore or gabber - no!
Used to love it aswell. Was heavily in to the 220+ bpm Industrial Strength stuff. Temper Tantrum , Nasenbluten, Disciples Of Annihilation , Delta 9, DJ Skinhead etc etc. Still got a lot of it on vinyl.
I used to love the gabba - HMS, Bass Generator, Loftgroover, Scorpio & Producer - happy times! Not sure i could handle it nowadays though!
Noticed the Cornwall bit - did you used to go to Dance Planet parties at the Coliseum in the early 90s?
