I can't say enough good things about this record!
This is absolutely essential! In my mind, Bass Terror EP is probably the best breakcore/hard ragga jungle 12" ever made. It really set the tone for the era and what would happen later with DHR, Ambush Records, etc. and just breakcore overall.
I still don't think anyone has topped, or ever will top this.

There's nothing about this record that doesn't feel right to me.
Amazing sub-bass lines, great acid synths, and the best chopped & compressed breaks around.

The beats on each track are made from much of the same sources I'm pretty sure, so it flows perfectly from beginning to end. Fast, chopped up, compressed amens.

Also, years later in ATR's "We've Got The Fucking Power" on Sick To Death EP, Alec used the same sub-bass line he used here in "Fuck You Up".
