Great double EP from the masters ..specially love Destruction although not musically the best tune on it.. I just love it's simplicity, a spacey dark minimal atmosphere that leads into a heavy but not brutal amen excursion ! Proving once more that intense could turn their hand to all styles and vibez.

One thinks that maybe there are test presses too, also labelled as such. The variation being both in the stickers, (one has no bold typeface present on plate 2,) the other is the color of the labels, plate 2 appearing as feint blue on both sides. Can anyone confirm this?

A must-have EP from the kings.
The Journey into space starts out with "Solar", a sublime trip through intense drums, string swells, and delicious synths; "Shara(Jazzstep? Yes, sir!)" and "Witness"(featuring some of the tastiest sax I've heard in d'n'b in a while), and we end on "Destruction", an intense(no pun intended) exercise in dark, creepy drumfunk; you can almost feel that you're lost in space...

Both "Witness" and "Shara" are also performed live on Logical Progression level 3(another must have from the boys). A stunner in every sense of the word.

Complete stormer!
Musthave for "SOLAR" (an amazing d'n'b journey through sublime atmos-fairy !!), "SHARA" (jazzstep king !) and the highly touching "WITNESS" (which begins dark and rebirths jazzy and meditative along with a drumline designed for dancefloor).
"DESTRUCTION" is the disappointment of this EP.
It's a boring attempt in dark atmospheric d'n'b and, in my opinion, is to forget.
