Love this, really do. numnuts rekons this is Crystl`s best but id have to say I prefer warp drive. Crystl pretty much blew my early teens mind, and I still rate his stuff to this day. Over 20 years and still holds up. fantastic.

Deep Space is the tune on this 12"..Horrendously good track played by Fabio and many other top Dj's of the time..Words fail me as to why there is no soundfile of this particular track which easily makes this 12" well worth the money.
Deep Space soundfile is up now..About time..Naughty to leave it off!

Yet another brilliant release by maestro DJ Crystl. This one from 1993 and still sounding lemon fresh. "Crystlize" is the main attraction here with Crystl´s trademark chopped "Amen"* breaks and some ethereal female vocal chants and strings, worked to perfection. Ruff with the smooth, this really is one of Crystl´s best. The flipside has a tune, which although not as good as "Crystlize" certainly has it´s moments. There Crystl sampled the beautiful albeit spooky strings from Quadrophonia´s "Quadrophonia" from back in 1990. Along with some cool rolling breaks (not the "Amen"* surprisingly!), the "We´re now ready for takeoff" speech and deep bass and we´ve got a great tune which always sounds good when mixed with some dark tunage. Classic Crystl is the order of the day here!

* For those who don´t understand all that "Amen" nonsense, here´s the skinny: The "Amen" beat is the most used breakbeat sample ever in jungle/drum&bass history (is still being used today all the time). It originates as a drummer´s solo breakdown from the 1969 funk tune "Amen, Brother" by The Winstons. DJ Crystl obviously loved that beat!
