Without looking it up, I believe Joker was one of Bizzy B's labels. A while back he restarted another of his labels, Brain Records (this is really just info you could find on Discogs, if you wanted. I'm not being terribly original here ). He vlogs and livestreams mixes on his Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/bizzyb2007My all time record label is Joker Records without a doubt I stumbled on these guys early in my DJing and have been in love since. They're defunct iirc, but I might be wrong. The b-sides were fucking bangers usually always. Here's some of my favorites, and i'll link a playlist on YouTube.
I was also exceptionally lucky that after Looking for almost 20 years for this stuff again to find some one with the entire catalog on SoulSeek.

Amen, brother. Most certainly. The only reason I didn’t realize its conspicuous absence is because @Haunter has been curating some of the finest Jungle ever laid down on wax directly to my profile page for the better part of 2019.I knew something was missing from this subforum.
THIS AGAIN. Do yourself a favour and check them out, the man has impeccable taste. I’ll run through them myself later and post some of my absolute fave choons he has posted here.
Mine too. One of the most prized pieces in my record collection...Grooverider & LTJ, you're speaking my language son.
I personally don't touch remasters. I remember an interview with Ed Rush and Optical where they were saying DJs can't play the older stuff live cuz club sound systems are so different now. I'm guessing that when that older stuff is remastered it's with that live use in mind, and not for someone listening through headphones who can pick out subtler details at their leisure.Any opinions on the Metalheadz remasters? They seem nice but the bass in Photek - T'Raenon got wrecked and J Majik - Arabian Nights doesn't even have the right b-side. Been wary since...
One of the first D&B songs I'd ever heard, actually. My other favourites were the album's intro, with the Star Trek vocal samples, and "Rivers of Congo"God, Grooverider. Absolutely one of the highlights of my college years was just peacing out on the long drive up to university around 4 AM with The Mysteries Of Funk bumping at 40.
Where's Jack The Ripper is my favorite cut on the album. Glad I stumbled into this thread.
