I still remember walking into my local record shop (Bitin back in Gravesend, UK) back in 99 and seeing a new delivery arrive, and a fresh full artwork copy of 'Watermelon' being pulled out. My face just lit up with joy as i had been after this since i had first heard it! This was one of the best feelings of going into a record shop and picking up a tune you were desperately after, the great memories of that era.

Both tunes are absolutely amazing and showcase the talent these two dnb pioneers possessed from an early age. A must have record for any dnb fan

No exaggeration, this is as classic as it gets and this is a poster track for the 1999 era of non-cheesy, dark, cerebral drum & bass. Both tracks are different enough to add up to a varied proposition. "Sick Note" is a pure weed-injected wall tearer; and my favourite "Watermelon" is a totally fucked up, ganking track that just vomits shit all over your brain, with real twisted vibes, brilliant and generous arrangement, and perfect, dirty synths. AWWW YEEEEYUH!!!

As with "Gas mask" / "Bacteria", I think there was confusion as to which tune was which due to printing fuck ups.

It's not very often that you get 2 wicked tracks that are just as good as each other on a 12" single. Both have very deep warping basslines accompanied with hard hitting drums. DJ Craze did a mind-blowing beat juggle with "Watermelon" in the DMC World Championships in 2000, which he won by a country mile, using the warping bassline to full effect.
