To flat out cut down these tracks and say they're terrible is rotten when considering Remarc is a pioneer and deserves a little more respect in my opinion, especially from the junglist community. Amongst my prized possessions are a stash of pirate radio downloads taken from dedicated sites that keep the vibe alive. Within these downloads are guys like Remarc grinding it out to not only make a name for themselves, but also to bring people the music. On one mix my man mentions that he's been at the station on the ones & twos for like 6 hours because another DJ was a no-show. Over the mic he gives a shout out and calls himself the starving, hungry Remarc, it's moments like that when you can see the dedication in real time. On another mix he apologizes to his audience because he just can't get into it, as he says it "Under Mad Pressure", who knows what was up, probably one of million issues that can hit a struggling artist in the day to day while trying to pursue their passion. Regardless, as said earlier the beauty in all this was that ultimately the passion was bringing the scene to people. So when taking all this in and bringing it back to the fact that Remarc is an innovator within the movement, the more civilized negative review would have said something like, "Mad Respek to my man Remarc for all he's done for the scene, but gotta keep it real and say I'm not really feeling this release..."

PS - I think it's dope and just like everything else the man touches, it's Solid Gold!

TOP tune & sounds even better these days. Never seen anyone call this "terrible" before though!! Just 100% positivity towards this track let alone the producer, but each to their own and it's still one of the finest Jungle tunes ever or a perfect example to represent the genre. 5/5

More pointless unconstructive comments from people who i'm guessing was'nt there at the time. This track is 21 years old and your commenting in 2016...
Whether you like it or not Remarc made massive tracks in terms of jungle from Dj-ing on Weekend Rush producing on Sub Base, Dollar Records, White House Records, Kemet Records etc.
1994 / 1995 was still some of the most innovative and diverse times in terms of Jungle / Drum and Bass. This is just one flavour, there's plenty more out there if you listen.

With so many classics released from the Suburban Base label and the prolific amen serial killer... Remarc. This release here is one of the most sought after and without a doubt one of Remarc's most popualar & finest.

All the tracks on this record provides nice work for all D.J.'S to cut with, even the little Bonus Speech on track AA3 that gives a shout out to the O.G. Crews and points out the sell out posers who jumped on the wagon. Tracks AA1 & AA2 are the Ice Cream tunes, both are proper droppers as well, one is more on the mellow drum n bass tip but still rugged for any hardstep jungle mix and the other is the hard mix with a similar sound scape but dosed with heavy drilling amens and a stabbing vocal sample rolling along with it, building up a climax to the perfect sample of "OOH... I'M GONNA CUM..OH YEAH..OOH."

But of course the top tune of this record is the R.I.P. track. This tune has been well played out... but when still dropping this tune at parties the crowd still gets hyped, the unmistakable strings in the intro to the pounding break of R.I.P...Rest.In.Peace...tearing out to the stomping bass line and shifty start & shut amens that signatures Remarc as the king of amens. If you are a self respected junglist and never heard this tune before...well.. my only comment is that you could only understand that nostalgia if you only heard it back in the days, oldskool or newskool, junglists & junglettes this record is a should have piece for your collection.
