I have both the original and this re-master, and this release is even louder than the original if that's at all possible. The jewel in the early Metalheadz back catalogue, one of Dillinja's best early recordings.

Stone cold classic Blade Runner sampling jungle from the one and only Dillinja, save yourself a few quid on the second hand market and grab this repress while you can!

Brutal Bass is the pick of an excellent bunch for me, everything a Jungle track should be, deep, dark, sparse with great drums & cavernous BASS !

Dillinja was about 20 years old when this record was released 94-95 ! For me it's his best release and arguably the best drum and base record ever produced !!

This 12 definitely needs another review. Rarely, a 12 is released that is a complete game changer. This has got to be THE loudest, clearest recorded track on vinyl out there. For clarity, in my opinion it's on a par with Rockit by Herbie Hancock. Whenever I'm setting up my sub in my car, these are the tunes I use. Dark, twisted, the production is rich and atmospheric, The Angels Fell epitomised everything that is great about Jungle/D & B in 95. This twelve is not just about the A side - give it a flip and you are seriously starting to get your money's worth. A decent copy is going for around the 40 quid mark at the moment and it's still worth every penny. Jah know Ya Big is a dark and dirty little number, with plenty going on throughout. Brutal Bass is for me, the real gem here. Dubby and dark, the quality of the production really shows. The keyboards really add atmosphere and menace to the track. It really is brutal. Play it loud and you really start to get the point of this recording. It needs to be played loud to appreciate its greatness. Low volume does in no way do this justice. And do you know what? That's just fine by me.

Can anyone please tell me why the re-press is sometimes being sold for more than the original? Thanks.
