I have to respectfully disagree with Jimm below. When Atlantis Remix came out it was a moment. It murdered every other record by a great height during this zeitgeist. Nobody else was making music to this standard. With hindsight you can see the pieces of the production puzzle, but at the time this was a very large step ahead in terms of technicality and had people scratching their heads at how far away DJ Fresh was in terms of producing. These were the first really high-production-value drum & bass tunes. People were still trying to make dissonant Ed Rush & Optical style music, but Bad Company (basically DJ Fresh) at this time was progressing that sound into something catchier and more melodic; rooted in a basic understanding of music theory. It was also the first time we heard this sample of Reese bassline from DJ Fresh – a sample which would dominate his (and the scene's) sound and constitute various classics evident on the successive release "Planet Dust", "Hornet", and so on. Atlantis Remix's outrageously tearing vibe betrayed a producer with confidence in his ability to take the scene to the next level. This is the sound of a young DJ Fresh creating a legacy. It sounded fucking amazing on the sound system of the fabric nightclub, with aforementioned Reese, epic build up and evil, cavernous sub bass. Seriously.

It isn't regarded as a classic, I guess because it lacks the depth of other Bad Company releases and is less introspective and more of a crowd-pleaser, but it was an important record that played its part in the evolution of DnB. The flip Survival, I always really, really liked; it was a bit of a sleeper hit brought to prominence by the clout of the RAM crew, and a nice diversion from the typically darkside Moving Fusion records. It had the signature RAM funk, and really worked in a set as a roller. Do not underestimate Survival – I am not saying this with rose-tinted glasses. It’s a quality record you shouldn’t miss.

No comments? This certainly wasn’t the best of either of these groups of producers, but you couldn’t not hear this most places you went in 2000/2001, much like Digital’s deadline and the BC mix of champion sound.
