Robin Wants Revenge !!!

For many years there has been a lot of mystery that surrounds this tune, I remember first hearing this on a Carl Cox tape from back in the day and and fell in love with the deep techno bassline. Then my mate got a copy on Record Review with the track titled “Robin Wants Revenge”, some 15 years later I managed to pick this up for a 5 . Later I discover this track originally came out on Jungle Jam Records and was by Robin Wants Revenge titled “Well (Frankie) my Son”, yours for a mere 300 on discogs. I recall there were some rumours that the artist kept himself unknown as the bassline was taken from Derrick May’s “Wiggin” tune, later sampled by Nexus 21 on one of my favourite tunes “Real Love”. So still to this date as I am aware no one has put their hands up to putting out this tune. However indications could be that it was Ray Love, as the Liquid 1991 remix of Robin wants revenge appears on the flipside of “Techno for all mankind”. But then again “Techno for all mankind” was a stolen tune originally done by Dance 2 Trance in 1990 and was titled “We came in peace” of which I have the original white label from 1990. So the mystery still remains, who is Robin Wants Revenge?

    Another killer, though I have this one myself – on the Record Review obviously. Have to say, I always thought it was Ray Love .. then again, I always thought it was called Robin Wants Revenge so what do I know?

    Brilliant, brilliant tune either way.

    Please stop posting stuff now. I have work I should be doing ..

    Never understood why people rate this tune so much,
    Although i had 2 copies & sold one for silly money,
    It just dont get why people love it so much,
    Sorry Tim!

      Hi Kris

      Happy new year and all that..

      That is what makes life so great and diverse…we should all have an opinion good, bad or indifferent. I love it for purely as when it slides into that deep bassline it becomes very minimal and tranced out…very druggy.

      All the best

    A real underground classic!
    First heard this dropped by the jam mc’s @ Konspiracy in manchester 1989, and instantly fell in love with that bassline Also played out at most of the illegal raves throughout the uk.
    All the proper headz know this one.

    Nice one Tim for uppin a proper classic!
