Great tune, unfortunately it brought with its huge influence, a change in drum n bass that is still being felt. This change was the abandonment of intricate chopped and varied beat compositions in favor of the simplistic and minimal two step beat. Drum n bass was never the same afterwards.

Pulp Fiction was the biggest tune in the scene in 95. Alex killed and the rest is history, when people talk about defining tunes Pulp fiction is in the conversation hands down, all day long.

Perfect number from Alex Reece. The bass lines great, so is the step. A very big tune in '95!

Throughout late 1994 and into 1995, there were the beginnings of a radical production shift within the Jungle/Drum & Bass scene. I remember this sound being quite divisive at the time.

For better or worse, the intricately chopped breaks, murky rave stabs and roughneck ragga vocals were on the wane and a deeper, more militant step had begun to creep in. Earlier tracks such as Alex Reece's own 'Basic Principles' had caught the ear of many big name DJ's, but for many of us it was 'Pulp Fiction' that epitomised this new sound; peppered with smoky jazz horns, melting bass, snapping snares and a detroit-style minimalist sensibility.

It was releases such as this that pushed the scene towards a futurist aesthetic; a sound and style that still exists almost two decades later. Game changing material of the highest order.

According to an interview with Alex Reece in the second issue of Muzik, it was Fabio who actually came up with the name of the tune. Fabio had just been to see the film in the cinema and thought that the tune was just like it.

What a classic! Lovely jazzy trumpet sounds, a climatic and hypnotic bassline and woman whispers make "Pulp Fiction" a perfect tune to listen on a Jaguar.
As a matter of fact, it couldn't be any other way: Alex has always demonstrated a highly sophisticated musical culture through his brilliant works, and his apprenticeship as a sound engineer can surely explain the way he cares about every single element on his music.
A real 'breakthrough'.
