sorry guys, it's all about taste when talking about music, and this is not even near any taste. absolute boring stuff that repeats itself every few seconds. nothing rough or dark here, music by numbers. side aa is quite ok, but that's it... 3/5

by 96-97, the drum and bass parties i attended (2tuff/PHI) weren't overusing smoke machines either. i don't even think they had them at all. that was more like mega-rave party shit. and before you go talking like 2tuff/PHI weren't what was up then, they were the main guys bringing the techstep sound to states first before everyone else had any idea.

ha...i was never at a party that the no u-turn guys played at in the early techstep days (96-97) that had piss-stinking corners. most of the cats that went to these parties generally considered themselves above the dirty hippy-type of candy raver and as such, dressed nicer and didn't get completely obliterated on drugs. it was more or less a bunch of young adults that dressed in polo gear and khakis, drinking a beer and occasionally smoking some kindbud in the corner when the bouncers weren't paying attention. that was the general vibe at these parties.

breakbeatscientist has summed up this filthy rotten scandral of a release far better than I could begin to attempt, so I wont. But let it be said that these tracks perpetuate everything great and lost from the early warehouse seen of the underground dnb days. Picture filthy walls, scumbags, piss stinking corners, smoke machines/smokers rocking so hard u can hardly breath and your somewhere close to the atmos of the early techstep warehouse scene. Tunes like this dont get made anymore, so grab yourself history son. And dont forget to buy Torque, there's a good lad!

Possibly one of the darkest slabs of tech-step from the hey-day of dark drum & bass. Both tracks are seriously heavy tunes in their own right. Mad Different Methods comes in on a gangsta hip-hop tip by sampling skits from Wu-Tang Clan's 'Enter The Wu-Tang (The 36 Chambers)' and overlaying them over a 2-step break and growling bass sounds. The ominous humming noise which permeates through out the track creates a genuine sense of unease.

'The Droid' on the flipside just sounds like the soundtrack to an unmade, apocalyptic sci-fi flick featuring killer 'droids'. It opens with electronic throbs, clashing metallic percussion and immense 'Anasthasia' stabs before unleashing a frenetic amen break and 'We are about to take you. Into the world' speech samples. If you like your tech-step raw and nasty than you can't get any better than grabbing this piece of classic No U-Turn
