Timeless classic at 138 bpm...also done at dnb tempo at 174 iirc. Uses a the high-pitched Star Trek noise - hence, the title. Never gets old - still play it.

Well, I still hammer Zinc's original mix. Always makes me feel like I can run through brick walls. Perhaps not the cleverest tune of all time - this tune failed all its exams but still went on to show the world who's boss.

This is a "one-off" rekurd for me :) ... Was in London and heard this "everywhere" at the time ? ... Found myself in Soho / Blackmarket and picked it up !! ... For me it´s all about the A side original, big, beefy bass club fodder, love it :) ... // Tommy

In fact there was about a five year gap between the height of the Jungle craze and 138 Trek. As Drum & Bass emerged from the Jungle scene the breaks had settled into less complicated breakbeat loops rather than the crazy patterns found in Jungle.

DJ Zinc had produced a series of very successful Drum & Bass tracks through the second half of the 90's. On his Beats by Design EP he attempted to produce a lower tempo Drum & Bass track with the result being '138 Trek'. While it is a Breaks track it proved to be hugely popular with the UK Garage scene. As a result it was given this single release.

Zinc's _138 Trek_ was released during the waning days of the jungle craze. So instead of frenetic drums all over the place, it opts for more straightforward breaks. The "Radio Edit" includes some questionable nattering from an M. C. -- a holdover from the jungle days -- but the "Original Mix" foregoes the vocals in favor of more bass. Zed Bias adds some syncopation to the bassline, helping to enliven the track as a whole.
