All time classic DnB tune. Impressive programming, its the beginning of what I would call the "Precision Beat-Editing Era within DnB" when producers started editing, rather then looping the beat, in this case an Amen Break.

When I first heared this 12" in a cologne catacomb venue when DJ Bleed (actual part-owner of germany's DE:BUG magazine) dropped it, it made me smile and dance. I wish DnB would come back to this complexity, sexiness and flow. Way Ahead of its time. Goes well with anything from the Certificate 18 Catalogue.

One of those great 12" gems. Both sides are equal in quality.

"Despatch #1"

The deep drones that float in and out are an excellent backdrop to the busy, yet funky breaks. The entire track has a certain "air" about it. Sparse in melody, but in the best way.

"Despatch #2"

Constantly moving with many sides to it. Warm subs and strong beats are accompanied by ghostly pads and fragments of distant pianos. A truly progressive track with a rather unconventional structure. Repeated listening is a must.
