Rupert Parkes at his amen best,drift just hits all the right notes as an absolute classic spacey amen roller,from the futuristic drift to the centre voice sample into the oriental sound interlude to the Lursa B'etor voice sample ripped from Star Trek the next generation.This track is like being on a journey in a spaceship travelling through the cosmos.On the flip Wave Forms is a great b side.

Quite Simply BREATHTAKING!!! Drift To The Centre is without question or even a shadow of doubt THE GREATEST JUNGLE TUNE EVER MADE! I know others would disagree, but Bloody Hell this has to at least be in the top 5 of that 1993-1996 golden era of KILLER JUNGLE? This is a 10/10 release and totaly my style of Jungle!!!! Utterly Vomit Worthy if ever played on an 80k soundsystem!!!

I think 'Drift to the centre' is an absolutely flawless track, it always gets me going, without fail and i've listened to it at least a hundred times. It's got a very uplifting tone and those pads are absolutely perfect. I love the 'baby baaaby' breakdown with some strange panpipe sounds and then the second drop which has a booming pulsing bassline bordering on jump up! I hope this record is appreciated that it is really as good as it gets...

Drift to the centre is an excercise in minimal beauty that actually defies the belief of my ears, (not to underrate LTJ Bukem whom everyone seems to find easy to forget at present, he after all actually made this tune sound like serious scientific research with the funk!!!) but more in need of comment is the b-side "Wave Form" which I think is just simple, funky and absolutely stunning! This demonstrates the idea that when you have something utterly brilliant to say it can be done in a short succint sequence of musical passages. Why overdo what can be done in 5 minutes. This is the Motown classic sound of "intelligent/progressive" drum and bass.
