Quite possibly my all time favourite d&b tune! Everything about it is great, the jungle style build up, the horns break, the combo of the two on the drop...never fails to please a crowd, a real stand out piece of tuneage.

Those stabs are so huge! Will always get a reaction.

For me 'Fix Up' is the track on this release. While Deadline has that trademark horns break it doesn't really go anywhere and becomes repetitve - kind of stuck in a rut. Fix Up on the other hand builds masterfully and keeps building over the the first 2 minutes - nothng too complex as this is a strict roller - then it continues to ebb and flow with great vocal dread samples and becomes a hypnotic monster - Now that's what I call DNB circa 2000

This is one of the best of all time and one of the tunes that inspired me to get into DJing. I remember going to fabric and hearing it all night without knowing what it was. It was just so infectious, almost tribal in a way. Is great to mix as well!

The first time I heard this was when I was trying to get into a DnB party at some rock club in Philly. I was trying to count the change the casher was giving back to me after paying for admission when I was completely distracted by a masive 1993 darkcore track. As it turns out it wasn't a 1993 darkcore track... by the strict definition of the word at least. Instead this was a brand new track that Baily was playing on dubplate. Well I was blown away and couldn't believe that someone had the balls to make such a wicked tune in the age of mostly crap dnb. Well thank goodness that both Phantom Audio, and Total Science had those balls.

Personally my favourite Drum n Bass track of all time (and I have thought about it for some time). A paradox: so musically rich and with such dynamism and depth yet so simple, you can count the amount of samples Digital uses.

It is a melting pot of Dub, Hip Hop, Funk, DanceHall Ragga, Hardcore (Old School), Jungle, Drum n Bass.

Mixes deliciously with anything..I love it when Andy C used to mix Shake Ur Body into this one (I've ripped him off silly with that mix!)
