TOP EP, the best ''3rd Party'' release imo, alongside ''The Capsule EP'', both are THE most wicked Noise Factory releases.
Here we have 4 darkside hardcore '93 cuts, all belters, the darkest ''noise factory'' record ever. As already been said 4 a-side quality tunes, 2 of them being known also from the ''The Dark Side II (Jungle & Technology)'' compilation of React.
This should have been one of the finest example in Jungle music.

Feel the Magic is a beautiful track, a hardcore tune from 1993 that can be played with any jungle from then to 1994 and still hold up, wicked arrangement and sampling.

Top notch Noise Factory release this. Containing 4 A-Side quality tunes and one little 'shout out' track an uncredited bonus. Seeing as Noise Factory were one of the first artists to go full on into the realms of junglistic-hardcore, this 1993 EP is unashamedly jungle through and through.

'Feel The Magic' opens things up with a mellow sounding, but fast-as-hell trip into jungle breakbeats and bass along with pitched up vocal lifts from Mary J Blige and ragga toasting ('All of the girls dem. Skin up! Skin up!). There's also a nice little step into the darkside at 2.20, but not enough to affect the upbeat nature of the whole track. 'Wheel Up!' continues the upbeat jungle theme, this time throwing in Busta Rhymes' vocals from his collaboration with A Tribe Called Quest on 'Scenario'.

'Come Inside' on the flipside comes across a little more moodier than the A-Side tracks starting off with what feels like Middle Eastern horns, but could possibly be re-arranged horns that feature in Public Enemy's 'Show 'Em Whatcha Got'(?), before launching into some thundering breaks and staccato-affected 'Uhh-yeah's. R Kelly gets some of his smarmy Swing Beat vox into the mix to soothe the intensity, but does not spoil the track at all. Last up is the inevitable 'Breakage #6' which ditches the mellow sections from the previous track to create an awesome distillation of frenetic, jungle pressure. As the sample says 'For real!!!!'.
