'I Want You' is epic with fierce Amen chops, house tones, classy vocals and serious rhythm. The bassline is heavy as well. Serious track.

'I'm Leavin' is another epic dance floor bomb with wicked summer vibes and rolling breaks.

As stated earlier this is Jonny L at his epic fun best.

What can I say about this release here apart from all tracks featured are absolutely essential for anyone who loves hard edged jungle/drum & bass. Sounding well ahead of it's time compared to other tracks released around 1995. 'I'm Leavin' is a storming amen-fest of a tune with powerful, emotive vocals from Dee and soaring synths. An extremely intelligently produced track which never let's up on the dancefloor either.

'More Life (Edit)' heads to more darker territory with sinister, distorted robotic vocal samples stating 'I want more life' combined with heavy breaks.

Before you can say that's your fill of outstanding tracks on one EP, the final track comes in to floor you into submission. I first heard 'I Want You' on an old Ray Keith mixtape back in 1995 and had spent about 13 years trying to I.D. it.
Starting off with twisting bass throbs and simplistic breaks, it then confuses you by introducing a familiar house music, keyboard section. Then blasts you with heavy-as-hell pitched down and chopped-up amens, and a stuttering female vocal. 'I Want You' contains equal doses of smoothness and rough qualities which makes it perfect listening for the body and the soul.

Jonny could do no wrong with this release. 5/5
