Agree with below really decent EP this one all four tracks worthy of play time on the dark tip with bags of Character also for my money much better than the remix EP

I'm surprised this has such low ratings, it's a solid 4 track darkcore EP on a par with most Formation releases from the era. As with most Formation records the mastering has been over-cooked so it's distorted in places, but I guess that adds to the charm and gritiness of the label. Definitely worth buying.

I think the piano part adds to the darkness of "The Warning" - it's obviously in there for a reason and I think it works well in an abstract, odd kind of way!

2001 has got a simple but very effective dark strings part and I like the way SS mixes in what sounds like an old jazz record in the background - very clever.

Fear Of The Future has got very gd string sounds again and a proper jungle breaks sound. Ditto Future Funk.

An excellent release I think.

"The Warning" starts off great, with solid beats, and a sick simple dark synth part. It chugs along for a while sounding truly awesome, until around 2:33 when a terrible piano part comes in sounding like there's a 4 year old banging away on the keys. In my opinion the piano kills the mood of what is otherwise an amazing track. Luckily it goes away after 16 measures or so, but sadly the damage has already been done. It's still probably mixable if you work around those measures, but... why DJ SS, why??!
