nice breakage but why does it start 4:30 minutes into the track?

Legendary. This one started off a whole new genre and style years later with productions from Serum & Bladerunner relying heavily on the original formula of this track, mainly the beats, which they did to absolute justice. Absolute killer anthem , with not just 1 devastating bassline but 2.. The only annoying thing I find about this track is that it can be quite hard to mix as 1 of the beats in the break appears not to be cut-up well enough to blend in time when in the mix with another tune. Adds character to the tune though, and certainly didn't seem to put anyone off from playing it

I once read 'Rez' by Underworld being referred to as 'a prick-tease of a record'. A similar accusation could be levied at Ray Keith's 'Dark Soldier'. Sax blasts, juddering/shuddering slices of pulsed bass and haunted house keys dominate the first portion of the track; over half, in fact, before an all-action Amen (finally) bursts forth - not before the listener has been left in a state of anticipation akin to Spanish Inquisition-style water torture. Simple, yet effective from Ray Keith; the hallmark of any great drum & bass track.
