Warp drive hits you with soooo many lefts you will beg for a right, it then rips your head off and defecates down your neck. Meditation spanks you round the chops with a double wham largactil kosh.... What's not to like! Massive pain followed by mmmmmm.... a calming, warm serenity.

One of the first real drum n bass tunes I ever came across with. So many memories. Timeless, astonishing beauty of sound.

Meditation really is an outstanding tune, it really is the the prodigy of 93 Jungle! Atmospheric as you like!

Easily one of the best early drum n bass tunes, if not of all time! I remember playing it in my bedroom and my mum came in and said "What is that jungle music you're playing?!" True!

Warpdrive is maybe my favourite tune of all time, I first properly heard it in about 2002 when I was just getting into oldskool jungle, I recognised it from pirate radio ad's and the odd old live set.

It seems so ahead of its time, the stuttering delayed amen is amazing, I cant think of much from 1993 or before that was that edited or sounded that good maybe until Remarc took everyone to the edge of what you can do to an amen.

Thats just the intro though, it rolls nicely with powerful sub's and even if you dont know the tune, you know it is building up to something.
Then eventually it happens and in comes one of the most beautiful, euphoric breakdowns you will ever hear.
Then the amens hit again and its all over, pure goosebumps material.
Also props to the cute little backspins between the amens halfway through, classic.

Anyway the A side is aint bad either, only a tune like Warpdrive could over shadow it.
Meditation is another great amen tune but this one is a shade less dark, quite a deep tune and got heavy play from Bukem and the likes.

Probably the best double A-side in jungle drum & bass history.

Also, this got a repress recently and is pretty easy to get hold of, but the version of Warpdive on the repress is not the original. It has different amen edits, not quite as good.
Was the same version that was played out on dub a bit and also was used on the Promised Land album.
Still for a fiver its still worth it

This is a benchmark in the ultimate ecstasy breakdown, you cannot beat the infectious amens in this tune. perfect for mixing into jungle, hardcore, n jungle - techno. I was lucky to bag this tune it is a must have for any collection.

Meditation is also a whopping tune however my preferred is warpdrive. nuff said, words cant describe so listen. like DJ Shadows album entroducing, its one of those tunes you never get bored of, however predictable it is after muchos rewinds on the wheels.

Buy this record.
