I particularly like the Sined Roza one.

Those could be classed proto-hardcore, they're sort of where the beats-and-pieces sample collage craze of the late 80s was moving into breakbeat hardcore. Mantronix' King Of The Beats was the definite originator of that phase, but there were some great tunes like

Rakim next to Nitro Delux. It all kinda made sense at the time though. Coldcut in particular seemed well placed to bridge all the seemingly disparate music genres. It was all kinda lumped into the same category, but it worked.
