To my family and friends, to my crew - the Accidental Heroes
To all @ Formation, to all Manchester headz

Each runout groove has a catalogue number of "HQ 023" etched into each side, but is crossed out and replaced with "NIR-15". This implies that this EP was originally intended for release on another Formation sublabel, 5HQ Recordings. It was instead replaced by The Shopfloor Part 2.

This is one of my favourite drum and bass records.
Great nervous breakbeats mixed with these dark and mean sounds. Some short calmer breaks, but then rockin' again.
You can't stop to move your feet when listening to these 4 burners. For some reason I like these very much during my workout at home. Very motivating.
But you can also imagine running around in dark streets in the night and getting a thrill, if you know what I mean.
"Hostage" only gets 4 of 5. But the others are all worth the five points. My favourite track is "Dark Star" at the moment. Must have!
