Samples Ready or Not in the first break and Killing Me Softly in the second. Nice idea, but unfortunately beats and basslines aren´t as fat as in the original Zinc version, bassline sounds a bit "dwarfy" adn all a bit uninspired like a lot of Aphro´s tune past 96/97

It seems there are hundreds of variations of this 12". Mines says "Fugees DJ Hype Remix" (yes I know it should be credited to Zinc) with the run out imprinted with "FOS 001- 01-01-1". Single side, label written in pen. Do I bother listing or adding cover art?

Kinda disappointed that the "clean" version of the track was used with bleep for the naughty words. The track clocks in at about 7m 18s. I love it for the bass though.

On it's release in 1996 this was one of the most highly sought after white label Drum & Bass tracks going, with copies initially scarce. The Fugees eventually heard the track. They liked it, but no agreement was made to release it officially.
In 2014 Rinse released the track on their label - http://www.discogs.com/Zinc-ugeez-Or-Not-138-Trek/release/6114821

Many debates are had over the producer of the track - DJ Zinc, DJ Hype and Aphrodite. But Zinc has commented that he made the track, with a little help from DJ Hype on the bass.
