One of the sickest electro/breaks records ever conceived. "Pure Havoc" may be one of the most cruel things anyone could do to a crowd of excited partygoers, a no-nonsense boom boom bap beat blaster that stops and starts in all the right places before plowing into one of the MOST INTENSE DRUMROLLS EVER MADE. The only bad thing I could say about this track is that the drumroll is SO BAD ASS that it makes the rest of the track an anti-climax, so I would recommend having something equally nasty to cut in.

Flip the record, and HELLO! "Crystal Jelly", a sadistic, tweaked-out and freaked-out acid blast reinforced by well-placed Fat Boys samples. Omar Santana doesn't just make tracks...he makes WEAPONS, and this cut will blast out of the speakers and bash up the breakers.

The Tricked Out catalogue shows in no uncertain terms that Omar Santana is not to be played with. His gabber tracks are also killer, but I really wish he would do more "hard hop" beats....
