I am not going to go into how important this release is, especially Terminator, for moving the Breakbeat Hardcore scene forward, heads know, new heads need to learn and snatch this up pronto. Mutated breaks battling it out with deep, dark and euphoric atmosphere, sinister breakbeat funk that is untouchable. Classic to the core. A previously unreleased mix of Terminator can be found here https://www.discogs.com/Goldie-The-Alchemist-The-Best-Of-1992-2012/release/4347524.

This is a really difficult EP to review. I think there is no question that this release was extremely important, released at just the right time when happy hardcore had just about burnt itself out and UK dance was at crossroads. This release pushed us along a more darker road towards what was to become jungle and darker D & B rhythms. A trailblazer that set the stall out and gave us a taste of what was to come. Personally I think it is one of the most influential pieces of vinyl of my generation. The four tracks featured here paved the way for what in my opinion is one of the best albums of all time - Timeless. Terminator, Knowledge, and Sinister are all truly excellent. Above all though, I do love this raw, unpolished version of Kemistry. This version is a much earlier version than the on the CD release of 95, and also different to the VIP version on the vinyl album. That said, Diane's vocals suit the track perfectly. She is sorely missed that's for sure. One track I would love to see released on vinyl is the version that's on the Timeless CD. As far as I know, it's not available on vinyl anywhere, but I live in hope of one day being able to spin my favourite Goldie track on vinyl. The reason I say this EP is difficult to review is this - no one can question its importance. That is beyond question - But has it really stood the test of time? Listening to what is being released today, this EP does sound a little dated. If there is one EP that deserves to be remastered, it's this one. A 2016 remaster of Terminator would do the trick. All that aside, if your are after a slice of the origin, the start of things, the seed that grew into a mighty oak, then look no further. A true, true, classic release. RIP Diane, you had the voice of an angel. Considering the tragedy with Kemi, and also Diane's passing, a very bitter sweet recording, but definitely an essential one.

Fuck man I wonder how rare this is…………….. like it has to be the rarest jungle track of all time surely. Probably only a handful if that in existence?

Ditto all below ground breaking tunes way ahead off its time, I'm lucky to have white label test press in my collection 10/10

My SYNTH 3 (not 003) has metalheads logo one side and info label the other side and basic black cover. 4x 5 star tracks, unique.
