One of the single best DnB 12"s ever.... each side masters a style.

Just listening again to Artificial Barriers - masterful. Along with Complexities and Last Dance - the chilled B-sides to the SD amen tunes were always just sublime and a perfect foil to the banging A-sides. In fact its disrespectful to call them A and B sides. Equals in every way.

This release perfectly illustrates the immense talents these guys have/had at this time. A blistering amen ripper backed with one of the deepest things you're ever likely to hear.
Didn't properly discover them until their release of 'Exorcise your Demons' and that was it - hooked. I would almost buy anything I saw on sight back in the day and releases like this was why.

It might not mean much to anyone, but Artificial Barriers is by far my favorite tune of all time through any genre. The bass line, along nice keys/pads and most amazing break edits ever amalgamated together make this my most loved piece of wax I've ever owned. The think break is just too much... similar to Oblivion - Lush, but just more moody, which is what I love.

The Crane is best described as a ripping amen track that just takes you into another dimension. Amens pierce through your skull and the cinematic atmospherics along with the added ninja sounds make you feel immersed in a horrific samurai fight. This is Source Direct in the dark...

The Crane is one of the most devestaing amen tracks of all time. As you would expect from source direct, hard, moody, cinematic, ultra atmospheric intricate sounds overlaying complex beats. I remember a recent interview with equinox when he said he was indulging in sexual intercourse whilst listening to the old radio "1 in the jungle" show and this track was premiered. In an attempt put this succinctly; he stopped having sex and got up to listen to the radio! Either that says just how bad this tune is, or just how poor equinox's sex life is, I would be inclined to believe the former though!! He said his girlfriend understood as she was a music lover too!! He went on to say "women come and go, but your music is what keeps you sane, what you play when they leave" Timeless classic from a very exciting time in the development of the D&B scene
