Overall a typical Biizy B release, chasing amens that led your legs twisted when trying to dance on the dancefloor. Nevertheless, every single track is a quality piece for itself.

The track that did it for me at that time and still does is "The Brain Record Crew". Those speedy amens with the spheric, dark break haunted by the vocal sample (most likely Bizzy B himself just does the trick

Well for me it's just a great record! Bizzy B and Equinox really should have released more tunes :)
My favourite is Sympathy ..just a stunning piece made up of musical atmospheres and smooth but intricate rid'ims, that takes me on a journey everytime! Top stuff...

I think this is the oldest plate I've got in my oldskool collection, but oh, my, god... Everybody is one of those tracks that made me smile with pleasure till my face hurt when I heard the insanity & rawness of the drum cuttage. It switches from deep to dark a few times and I always love deep oldskool Jungle & Garage chords, but I rarely get into darkcore style tunes/parts, well this track is the exception (probably along with Demon Resurrection).

My other fave track is Sympathy. Its a lot more chilled and 'lowdown' than Everybody but that's never a bad thing. Its a beautiful track with its sweet vocal sample and full flavoured chords & pads driven by a more basic but rolling drumloop. Start to finish, both B side tracks are just too dangerous to not spin!

There are two pressings of this EP. The labels are identical but one of them has the first few beats chopped of the start of the first tracks making them tricky to mix and Seven Minutes of Madness is shorter. I guess he had it recut, on the second pressing the music goes right up to the label with a tiny runout and all the tracks start when they should. I swapped my first copy of this soon after getting it but missed it so asked my local shop to order me one in and the replacement was much better!

Awesome EP, I loved Bizzy B's stuff back in 93 and it still sounds great now, so manic! There are little edits everywhere that make it great for mixing with. There is an exception on this EP with the chilled out, melancholy vibes of Sympathy, but the other three are full throttle darkness!

First vinyl appearance from Marlon Sterling (AKA Equinox) when he was 16 years old.
