This is a wikked EP of rough bangin 97 DnB/Jungle/TechStep that's often unknown or forgotten about. 'Reality Rmx' is nice solid grindy chopped Amen that just goes OFF from the midbreak onwards...fortunately long enough to be very useable in a mix, the overly long intro is typical of his early style, trippy vocals & FX, steppa beat & eventually rolls into the proper nutty tune it is...quite simple in structure but oh boy is it an effective slammer. 'Hellbringer' & 'Untiteled' are another couple of dark, grindy experimental Tech-Jungle mix nasties...weird, menacing & unusual to say the least. 'Shiver' is back to the classic style of chopped layered Amens that get timestretched & simply beaten up, Choir stabs, some hoovers, grindy synths & basically just a LOT going on...which keeps breaking down nicely to a stripped back steppa, then goes nuts once more...just class. 'Tron' is simply of my alltime favourite Panacea of those set ending type brutal nasties only to be dusted off & dropped on an unsuspecting 'avin it crowd when a BIG sound system is available...this (Panacea Remix) & the Original are equally effective at sorting the men from the boys on a dancefloor & his layered heavy Amen beat-cutting in this version is just delighful over a nice dark TechStep break...not as grindy, but still just as dark, with stabs, sweeps, fx, stretched vocals etc etc - a little too much high end either in the pressing or (as is often the way w/Panacea's work) it's there to annoy & hurt the listener anyway.

Every copy of "Low Profile Darkness" I have heard sounds like it was recorded cheply... Very distorted, pops and cracks, even if the pack is brand new, straight out of the pack. But who knows with Panacea, He probably meant for the pack to be like that. "Low Profile Darkness" has some of the darkest sounds I have ever heard in my life. Be sure to put the children to bed before playng this album. "Reality RMX." and "Tron RMX." are my favorite tunes. Hard, choppy Amens with Dark, super-Distorted Basslines make up for the sound quality on "Low Profile Darkness". Respect...
