First heard this in Blue Note played by Rider. He eased the intro in faded last tune out out. Oh my gosh when it dropped it was like a bomb going off!!! The little hot place erupted!!!😵😵😵😵 my of been pulled up 4 times....Brilliant!! And don't forget that really heavy bass/sub that comes in, in the last quarter, thought my guts where gonna rupture. 10/10

Can't get enough of this 12". Some of the meanest and darkest dnb out there with the classic amen fills.

Don't quote me on this but apparently Dillinja used an explosion sample for the kick drum on Violent Killa.

The bass drop used in Violent Killer is ridiculous, with so much sub bass, brute force breaks and intimidating atmosphere its dark and nasty and I love it. The flip is tame by comparison but both tunes hit hard and are so well produced. Both are filthy dirty bangers and are still good value, but watch prices rise. Future classics and the best release on Valve in my opinion.

Surely one of Dillinja's finest moments: a sublime track of dark and industrial beats and atmospherics, uncompromising production yet sounding so effortless; an unsettling, absorbing listen.

FYI, the etching is incorrect. The side marked "AA" is Violent Killa and the side marked "A" is 12.01.

Both tracks are of the early dark hard tech step dnb days with heavy, steady, hard hitting, slower beats layered with all kinds of stabs, kicks, and just outright weird sounds that come out unexpectedly and seemingly radom at times. Listening to these tracks compared to some of the newer releases from these artists gives you an idea of the progression of the dnb sound that they have presented over the years...Well worth to have in any collection....

christ! when i heard this in the record store i had to replay the drop about 10 times! A very dark and heavy track not far from "Armoured D" and deffo one to have in your record box. The flip "12.01" has quite a spellbinding intro with lovely amens and bubbling bass.

Oh my Gawd! what the f*** is going on here? This is one tune to enthrall the masses.I c`ant get over the speed and agression of this track. The bassline is almighty here and i am so glad to have this track because its so different from everything else in the box and is my prize vinyl at the moment. Has to be listened to be believed.
