This song is all about the sub. If you haven't heard it on a massive system, you can't comment.

15's don't do it justice. You NEED 18's. It grabs at your pants, rattles an empty bottle out of your hand.

Ah, good times :)

Controversial maybe :-)

2239375, is the messiest(not in a good way)track i have heard for a long time tbh, and definitely the most untidy tune by Breakage i have heard, but being his first release and nearly 10 years old- i guess he got a way with it.

It is worth listening too for the Breakage history lesson element and to get an impression of how his sound has developed-for the better.

He is a great producer, IMHO in the current top 5.

Note for Track D:
Breakage tells us on the Dogs on Acid message board:
"rotate/mirror each number in the list and it spells numbers

2 2 3 9 3 7 5
N U M b E r S"

Great EP and made a clear statement in its time! I love the Numbers track. A cut up Soulpride break with amen sprinkels make their way through militant bass and eerie sounds until it erupts in a amazing breakdown straight from Peshay's Piano Tune. Gattaca does the same with a little bit darker mood and a bit more straight forward. Kryptonite starts out as a uplifting tune and warps into '93 Hardcore. Back off is a dark ragga influencd tune, which gives us a hint of what Breakage will do only a few years later. Truly D&B from another dimension! Rough, but with a lot of great ideas.
