"Made in France"

The sleeve and label both omit Knowtoryus - "Bomberclaad Joint (K&D Session™)", incorrectly listing five tracks on side H instead of six, and the alternate version exclusive to the vinyl is mislabeled.

G and H-sides are DJ mixed together.

A magnificent collection of remixes! Say no more! Kruder and Dorfmeister are the kings of downtempo and dub!

Does any one ever seen a mispressed version of this release? Mine has a second time Bomb The Bass - Bug Powder Dust instead of Count Basic - Speechless (Drum 'N' Bass)....

Incredible production and mixing. Not to be missed by any downtempo or dub fans.

Why are people giving a BOOTLEG Alert on this?!? This is the original 1998 press by G-Stone! There is another listing for the 'crude, fake, bootleg'.

This is my favourite Album of all time. Hands Down!

I recently purchased this album at what I thought was a too good to be true price from the US.
It arrived and looked all so nice and great condition almost unplayed as stated.
But as my suspition about the price pondered I took out my origional copy which I have had for years and `voila` you can see the difference straight away.

The major differences folks are first the cover is not the same colour as the origional which is a has more blueish tones.Also the writing on the origional is slightly indentated and on the bootleg the writing is flat.
Also you will notice the G-stoned label `g` is not present in the top right hand corner.
The origional cover also has a shinny glaze on the card but the bootleg is not as heavy and dull looking.

The actual vinyls first you will notice on the middle near the hole the origional has 2 concentric circles but the bootleg does not.The label quality of the bootleg is also not as good and in parts is slightly cracked and bubbly in places.It takes more effort to squeeze the record on the spidle as the hole is not cut so well.
The printing looks almost identical.
The actual pressing seems good quality and I cannot distinguish much sound difference to the naked ear when played side by side.
The bootleg though has quite a large lip on the outer rim and the vinyl is definately lighter and not as good quality.
Also in the run out grooves the origional has `cut by pole` etched inside but on the bootleg only the catalogue number is present.

I have seen loads of these go up for sale recently from the US so chances are like me if you bought a copy in the last 3 or 4 weeks you have bought a bootleg.
Quite a good scam when you can see how many people want this album and how much it normaly sells for plus I am sure copies have been going out through e-bay also.

If you have bought one of theese I would take it up with the seller straight away and make the paypal dispute and claim your money back like I have.
My seller would not refund me hence me letting the cat out of the bag here.
The sellers I am sure are aware they are passing off fakes as origionals so this is criminal.
They are also destroying the artists hard work to make one of the most definitive albums of this era so they should be stopped in their tracks.

Got to watch out as I am sure some people have bought it cheap and are maybe not aware they bought a boot and are going to try and sell it on for a higher price so be careful and ask sellers for confirmation they have an origional first.

I have emailed g-stone and they no nothing about any represses so this is for sure.
Peace out!

Much derised genre, downtempo, chill-out, leftfield, was saved by these duo. What brilliant skills and fresh breeze they brought to the genre mastered by the Bristol movement. For me these two guys were the Todd Terje of the late 2000s. Pure masterclass and setting the standards that many many wannabes never got to reach. These collection should be in anybody's selection of timeless music. There is not let down. No fillers, all killers. MUST HAVE

Probably one of the best albums of all time. An amazing collection of remixes from Peter Kruder & Richard Dorfmeister of Vienna. The production on these is incredible, the creations original. This sound has been bitten by every downtempo artist since 1998, but has never been done so well. The original downtempo dub. Respekt.
