Although I am not the largest Adam Beyer, or Drumcode follower for that matter, and I tend to lean more on his production output as Mr. Sliff or the Truesoul material, the B side of this record is my favorite track of his, by some distance too.
The filthy, rumbling bass line is possibly the best one he's ever come up with, and its intensity could only be paralleled by some of Henrik B's (another hero who headed "left") Illgorhythm records. The pace is incessant and tense. The beats are so tight and fast it hurts. And when those crystaline dopamine effects are introduced during the break, it just takes the madness to a whole new level.

The only other record that ever came out of his studio that could hold a candle to the savage energy displayed on the B side here is that four tracker he dropped on Conform. However, it's the rawness of this banger's bass line that never ceases to amaze me. That said, this, along with a handful other Drumcode releases, has survived that painful test of time, and really has emerged as one of the label's brightest moments. Thomas Krome and Henrik B are two other producers you'd want to scope out if you, like myself, really dig the B side of this record.
