VA - David Mancuso Presents The Loft Vol 2

These comps are now long out of print and are fetching 'big bucks' on the used market with some prices I've seen exceeding £200 for a CD! That is a lot of money but almost understandable since a lot of the tracks on this are pretty hard to come by and Nuphonic going bankrupt obviously didn't help. Whats also sad is that these Loft comps were the best selling items in their catalogue supposedly. Sav (one of the owners) went on to start Tirk Recordings however, which is carrying on in the same tradition as Nuphonic and is/has been releasing some excellent stuff which I highly recommend you check out. If you've never heard about David Mancuso, The Loft or some of the great artists/music on these comps before, then hopefully this is a great introduction to go & find out more about them. Enjoy.

Could you PLEASE reupload the loft 1 + 2?? They are out of print and label is down, so it should be no problem with copyright
