Finally uploaded by Brasstooth / Neville Smith himself, so this one shouldn't be taken down.

Fun fact: His DMCA requests helped take down the original Trance Classics channel, they were copyright strikes.

His tirade against uploads of his own music is a little bit annoying, because he even takes down extremely rare tracks as if you can buy them somewhere (spoiler: you can't) and only a few people own.
For instance, there is a remix of one of his tracks made by Paavo before he joined A&B (both Neville and A&B attended the same university), barely anyone has that vinyl and the only copy on the Internet was on some Russian site (in low quality mono), nope, he takes that down every time. At least let your rare music be shared if we can't give you money for it anymore!

Which track? I probably have it, if it's from the Brasstooth/Silky Mac vinyl I'm thinking of.

Edit: I have all the mixes of 24 Hours, but only the 128 version of Celebrate Life (which really isn't worth seeking out).

Brasstooth - Pleasure (Trance Edit), that mix was made by Paavo as well. I do also have the couple 24 Hours ones that he also produced with Neville ;) I will be very impressed if you have the 24 Hours Pump2Funk and CyberSonic mixes tho!

He most definitely had something to do with them as his name is all over the releases, haha! Always secretive about his old times. It would be amazing if you could share those in the rare vinyl rips topic because I don't think they can be found anywhere! I've never had any success, only found the original 24 Hours mixes and that Pleasure Trance Mix in lowish quality mono on a Russian site.

Thanks very much, they're so rare!! Those are even more impressive than the Pleasure Trance Mix imo, it's very early A&B tinged with the snare rolls and such haha!

I may or may not have tried to upload Paavo's remix of Pleasure and may or may not have received a strike as well. =p

Excellent, carefree....


I don't find this fact fun lol

Woah that sucks when did this happen? Did he even give you warning or was it Youtube brutality that got you in the end?

Also, I'm not trying to say A&B were just copy/pasting music at that point in time ( 😇 ) but I've always thought the Free State remix sounded jut a little bit similar to the A&B remix of Dario G - Dream To Me:


That said, I love the Dream to Me remix anyway!

They were copy and pasting. They admitted to it (dunno when they said that), they got the idea from Matt Darrey.
Most early remixes/Free State/Dirt Devils releases sound the same. Same chord progressions, melody sequences and stuff.
