Sounds very urban, energetic, jazzy. You can also hear ondioline here and there for that extra "classic" vibe. Very rich souding album with a lot of DnB goodness.

This album is truly a hidden gem.

Certainly the most Jean-Jacques Perrey-esk µ-Ziq record ever. I'm sure he's sampling the hell out of him here, but this record is much more than petty theft. It's really a milestone record from Mike because this was his first foray into the drill n bass or drum n bass style. It lead the way for his future records (most notably right off the bat, Lunatic Harness) and more importantly the way for Planet µ's future records for which it ows it's great success. Funnily enough Urmur Bile doesn't seem to get talked about as much and is largely ignored. It's always pretty easy to find in the used bins, so when you see it (and you will), pick it up because it's a worth while fiver you're spending here. I love it for tracks like "M5 Saabtone" and the "Phi* 1700 (U/V)" retake called "1 Hip 007*".
