Disa MC has a wicked sample by the UK original old school mc that is Mike J from the Demon Boyz. And yes the sample is slowed down considerably ;) Rugged tune all the way! Hardcore noisey stuttery junglizm ;) ... Return Of The Redi is nice and a great opening for DJ Trax who went on to produce some wicked sped up hip hop ardcore jungle... And then comes USI- Revolution that smacks you deep in the brain with this slammer! Dark menacing and the bassline sounds like a humming Bee amplified through a seriously loud but shitty speaker system. And that ain't no diss.. I love it! The beats are very cluttery on all 3 tracks and are similar to II Exodus productions. But hey it's still great shit to ear and look what happened all these guys a few months further in which was the start of 1993!... Production equipment suddenly upped the game with these guys at the controls!

The reviewer below is 100% correct. Disa MC is 100% jungle. Not even jungle techno or proto jungle or whatever pseudo name one wants to throw at it. The other tracks on the other hand are on the more traditional breakbeat hardcore/techno-proto jungle techno tip.

Disa MC is pure jungle before its time, there isn't any doubt of that. In terms of its chaotic structure and definitely its speed. As far as I'm concerned a track isn't jungle unless it's way above 140 BPM, and I'm being generous. However many chopped up beats, ragga basslines, dancehall motifs it consists of. This is definitely fast enough to be jungle.

Do I like it? Not particularly. 'Get busy with the track, mix it up' (Revolution) is my favourite Bizzy B track overall. Also found on the other much better USI release. Such a rough, dark, amen smashing, harsh synthed, bleeped techno influenced, mid tempo, rolling underground badass track.
