This tune makes me feel sad, can't help hearing Hyper D over this.

I dont think there is a mastering issue with this track ?!? .... Anyway FIRST ever drop was on Grooverider's show with Adam F in the studio at the time. You could tell that Rider was gobsmacked when Adam pulled the metal plate out of the bag for him to showcase. After the damage was done - Adam says "all you wanna know is that this is gonna change the game at Metalheadz sunday sessions" or something to that effect. And my gosh it did - a game changing beast which is beded down as one of the finest tracks to grace the mighty MHDZ label, and as such draws on the original elements of the Reinforced Records transistion in to the headz sound we all love today. And oh yeah the mastering - put it this way with the panels that Adam was working on ANY engineer would of had his work cut out on that day. Peace long live Metalheadz🔊🔊💥

futuristically ominous tune.

This tune is massive. Period. We went raving shortly after it was released and it was played by all the DJs at least once in their sets. Mother Earth should not be overlooked, it is the antithesis to Metropolis utilising a voice mail message left by Goldie, indicating his doubt that Adam would finish the tunes on time. He did and the rest is history.
Another piece of semi useless information: the tune was released during the summer of 1996. Upon hearing Metropolis for the first time DJ Hype apparently said, "God, is it winter already?" Ha,ha!

THE biggest tune of 1996 without doubt! "Metropolis" rocked the place till the roofs came tumbling down and the walls exploded. This sounded like nothing else at the time, very futuristic and of course it was brought to us by Goldie's Metalheadz label. The production is sublime, it's one of the biggest sounding tunes I've ever heard and when played out at a club it made people absolutely crazy out of their minds. The drop after the spooky intro is just mindbendingly good, kicks like a hardcore metal mule on steroids. The beats are brilliant, the bass is HUGE and the whole feel of it is so utterly precise and evil sounding - this tune has few equals in drum&bass. Truly legendary stuff which hasn't aged a day since it came out, would still kick major ass today. One of my all time favorite tunes. Adam F really delivered this time! Big up!
