Ed Rush and Optical were the masters of this genre. No one has made hard-edged drum and bass as good as them.

Alien Girl.... Still play it to this day. Still sounds great. Its a giant of a tune and definitely an all time favourite. Remember when DNB labels used to be this good?

This is dance music weaponised. Utter classic. Sequels are never usually better, but like Terminator 2 to Terminator, the Cutslo mix is what The Locust was looking for. Masterpiece. Oh, and Alien Girl is a KILLER, goes without saying.

Overrated average stuff. Talking about hardest techstep at those times, this is just a "joke" comparing to Current Value's cold-steel touch in his first long player "Frequency Hunt" which is phenomenal. Check it out.

I remember coming out of the 'Que Club' Birmingham after hearing Cutslo (that got dropped 3/4 times that night) on a Saturday morning after 'Flashback' and walking straight into Hard 2 Find Records and saw it on the shelf...Every now and then it gets the dust blown off it and spun.....It scares the shit out of people that have never heard it before..... quality!

Still have my copy. Was my absolute favorite. Nothing at the time was harder than this. Listened to it over and over again on my walkman.

To be honest, I bought this at the time because I was a label completist. It's pretty good and has stood the test of time, but I never really got that excited about it.

this is a timeless classic, the good part is that 10 years ago i sold it for £30 to go towards traveling funds and i just bought a new one for £6.50 what a result!!! this time it stays in the rack...:)
