Yes. This pack contains some serious jems. Both Kemal tracks, the Ed and Optical, and the Stakka and Skynet are all absolute TOP game. Back in the day, when i would get the chance to play out on big, nice sound rig, the encrypter would usually get a rinse... and people would just "what the fuck is this?" every time haha.... the bass just fuckin surges on that track

Until the digital world affectively opened the flood gates to endless remixes (have a look at the 2017 remix release for Marvelous Cains Hitman remixes if you can have a spare few hours!), the vinyl scene at least had a bit more restraint. Yet somehow Mutationz seems to have gone through about 10 remixes before the new millienieum was in more than its infancy.
Ironically despite Kemals 'Munitionz III' remix coming only one release after another 4 remixes (including one from Konflict), its probably the best track on this LP. Personally I dont think thats saying much (no idea what JonnyMassacre has been smoking to think this at any time could be considered best album of all time), but hey each to their own.

Didn't realise it at the time, but listening to this again ... 11 years later ... I think this is one of the best D&B albums of all time. Every producer is taking the piss; well on top of their game. "Cannibal Run" is weird at first but once you get it you can't live without it ... such a smart evolution of tech-step. "Mutationz" remix sounds like Kemal at his best. "Uprock" is like nothing I've ever heard before - so simple, yet bearing the hallmarks of pros who're enjoying themselves. Special mentions also go to the excellent "Warp 2" and the harshest tramen I ever heard on "Syntax" ... and how could I forget "The Encrypter" by Kemal? This track is so disturbing one can only wonder what was going on in that man's head at the time, and, moreover, how the fuck he managed to funnel it into a computer so we could come along on his journey. It's delicate but disgusting, and extremely complex. Then there's "Black Monday" ... I could go on and on ...
