It's been 20 years since the record came out, so here's a review, there were only 300 copies, some people might be curious about this vinyl.

I still think Can You Funk Legit is one of the coolest track names I've ever heard, its probably what caught my attention initially. The Immortalz were on point regarding their Hip Hop samples, its evident on this record and their DJ sets. Taking what sounds like a Stunned Guys bassdrum and a reasonable synth riff, its a decent Gabber track clocking in at 180 bpm. The best part of the track is the intense breakdown which samples the movie, Twister. Also the back spin samples are nice.

Fuck U's is way over 220 bpm sounding like Speed Metal similar to U.V.C and Speedfreak. The track title comes from a famous sample of legendary Australian comedian, Rodney Rude, I'm surprised more producers didn't sample him more often. Probably the most interesting part of this track is the extended Hip Hop breakdown that dominates the middle. It also samples the first four lines of Ray Luv's song, Get My Money On, I hadn't heard this track before, but his lyrics sound good here. This is my favourite track on this record and reminds me of what good Speedcore sounds like. Plus the kickdrum has a punchy feel to it, I like it anyway....

The last track is All I Wanna Do, this is a bit slower at 170-175 bpm, there's a catchy LL Cool J (I think) sample, but for the most part its fairly generic Gabber. The only distinction here is that it sounds exactly like a Spellbound and Mikey track, maybe they helped out on the production?

Overall, this is a solid Australian Hardcore record and is a snapshot of how healthy the Sydney Hardcore scene was going in 1997. Alongside this release, you had: Spellbound and Mikey @ Execution Records, DJ Crisis @ Cen Kill, Geoff Da Chef @ Blown, Rage Reset and Noise Generator firing on all cylinders.
