Not much I can add that hasn't been said, other than its so ahead of its time. The breaks are so tight, the soundscapes created are so deep. This is heavy weight quality. A varied mixture of tearing Amens and more intelligent floaty stuff.

Equal parts timeless and flawless. Has to be all about TSC (for me, at least). Real tough breaks overlayed with that ethereal mystique that makes these kinds of tunes so intoxicating to listen to. This dark but dream-like vibe is something people such as Breakage, early Noisia and even Djrum went on to explore, but it's always been in pure and deep jungle that this space has come to its full realisation.

Just echoing the below comments really. Intense were in a different league.. From the early hardcore stuff all the way through to DnB love everything they produced.. All four tracks on this one are worthy of a gushing write up ! big nod to the Dope remix of the quickening as well absolutely brilliant! ..hard to pick a favourite for me, the title track is jaw dropingly ahead of the game though, all four tunes have such depth and creativity. One of the best (if not the best) four track EP's to grace the jungle music scene IMHO still to this day for me.. Salute everyone involved! A record I will treasure till my time is up.

So Happy that i am not the only DREAMER , absolutely love this and is maybe the best INTENSE ep for me.

4 great tunes , lucky that they pressed alot so there are still copies out their .

if this was rare it would be gone !

Absolute quality as everyone here has testified too..Personal favourite of mine is The Dreamer..

I think 'The Dreamer' is one of the best Intelligent d&b/jungle tunes of all time, it really is special.

Without doubt one of the finest dnb/jungle e.p's ever released, every tune as good as the next. Whatever you spend to own this record is worth every penny, a must have, as are the other 'Intense' 12"s on Rugged Vinyl..Personal favourite for me is the title tune 'The Genesis Project'

totally agree this is a fantastic ep all round but for me the genesis project is the track on this ep . amazing production quality and i think @ 3:46 a sample from the film "natural born killers" this is in my alltime top 10 for sure .

This is a totaly VOMIT WORTHY Darkside Jungle release here and by that i mean this record played on a massive soundsystem at like 80k or something would be one of the greatest things you would ever hear! This Record is totaly off the hook! PLAY IT LOUD!!!!!!

Completely agree with the comments bellow, an all time favourite. Time Space is the stand out track but this one of those rare EP's with all 4 being excellent. The Dreamer is also a great tune worthy of any mix tape.
