Toxic Jungle gets its inspiration from the break in the Equinox track "Hard Drive" released on Vortex Records back in 1993.
Nonetheless, it fits right in here.True classic.

The real gem here is Toxic Jungle. I remember hearing it for the first time on Doormouse's "Soft And Gentle" tape and couldn't believe that music like this existed. Five years on and it doesn't sound dated at all, to my ears. I still play this track regularly.

This is a great track for mixing because of the synth lead that takes up the first minute or so. Seems simple enough at first, but listen closely and you'll discover a complex, polyrhythmic piece of pure 8 bit sounding genious. Then there's that evil, growling bass drop and a beautiful mess of amens. Classic Midwest hardcore.

Find a flaw on this record. Kerrang went ape shit for the vocals on Doormanymouse, and justifiably so. Absolutely fucking brilliant. Also been loving the scratch samples, a capellas and general sonic nonsense that's left at the end of every damn track on this beast of wax. Addict once again turns out a record that's 100% dj friendly. If you don't get girls running up to you offering you quarters for moustache rides then you're wearing the wrong shirt.
