Original Surreal Killer: if you don't take darkstep into account, then this has to be one of (if not the) sickest drum and bass tracks ever produced. I haven't heard from Hive in the past 4-5 years, but tunes like Surreal Uncut, Neo, Air Raid etc. are the main reason why he is so successful in the scene.

Klute VIP: as slabface said, this track does suffer from a severe case of personality disorder. Very leftfield, very weird. Not that it means anything bad, actually it's maybe my favorite out of this three. Btw I think it is more on the Certificate 18 side (and, funny enough, reminds me of Teebee's Black Science Labs Mix of Klute's Faceless released in 1999).

Surreal Uncut / Teebee Remix: probably the grooviest in this list, working with Teebee's (now classic) signature nordic style.

It depends on who you are and what do you like, but I think this is one of the greatest releases of drum and bass. All hail the Cert18/Commercial Suicide/Violence trio!

5/5

Klutes remix can't make up it's mind whether it wants to be the bass bomb style rise out that he used to release on Certificate 18 back in the late '90's or one of his more mature trance influenced recent tracks. An able workout, nonetheless.

Teebee doesn't seem to have that problem,with a textbook remix in his own inimitable style. Artic circle bleakness with crisp techy snares and laxative sub bass. Dark.
