Foul Play

One of the most important collectives in breakbeat dance's shift from hardcore to jungle during the early '90s, Foul Play was responsible for seminal drum'n'bass tracks like "Open Your Mind," "Being with You" and their remix of Omni Trio's "Renegade Snares" (all recorded for Moving Shadow Records). The trio of Steve Bradshaw, John Morrow and Steve Gurley began releasing material in the early '90s, on their own Imprint label as well as Section 5 and Oblivion. From 1992 to 1994, Foul Play recorded a raft of classic tracks for Moving Shadow. Though Gurley left in 1994 to join Rogue Unit, the remaining duo kept working on producing and released only the second artist full-length on Moving Shadow, 1995's Suspected. Foul Play also founded another label, Panik Records, though Bradshaw's tragic death in 1998 left the group's future cloudy. Morrow returned the following year with a new project, Foul Play Productions, organized with producer Neil Shepherd. ~ John Bush
