Say whatever you like about about tarantula, it doesn't matter and i quite frankly don't care. This record is all about fasten your seatbelts. ##the freestylers and pendulum have collaberated to make one fine breakbeat claasic. Adored by lovers of drum n bass/breaks both on the commercial and underground scenes. A spine twisting drop with punch and energy. This tune was once described by my mate as 'like brushing your teeth with a brick'. He's not far wrong!

This track is very well known (because it's by pendulum) , but I'm not sure about the biggest selling drum and bass LP ever.. I Think The biggest selling drum and bass LP would be one of Goldies.

But if you starting with Drum and Bass this is essential.. now that I've been into drum and bass long enough I personally think this is just another commercial piece of junk.. DJ Fresh isn't the same anymore and what are they doing with that annoying mc and breakbeat artists helping Pendulum and Fresh make one of those tracks.

When you get into Drum and Bass longer you will know what I mean..

I feel they just want to make money, I don't think they really care about the music.. if Fresh cared about his music he would have stayed with Bad Company UK, their tracks sold because they were dark and good.

Wow. Someoen once told me this was the highest selling drum&bass tune of all-time. I don't know if that's true, but I wouldn't be surprised. I've heard this played everywhere. It is an anthem for drum&bass. Honestly, the MCs are pretty weak, but the tune more than makes up for it. Just a wicked piece of music. Heavy bass and pounding beats. Always a floor filler. I once saw Pendulum spin in Rome and it was surreal to hear a club full of people who didn't speak english chant the words to Tarantula when I speak english and I can't understand them.

Fasten Your Seatbelt is a slower breaks track. Heavy bass and a funky beat, this one is great for any b-boys into breaks. The sample is Dr. Octopus from Spiderman 2. Took me a while to figure it out, but makes for a pretty wicked drop.
