Babylon is an absolute essential entry in any REAL Jungalist collection. No disrepect to some of the classics in the ilk of The Licence, Super Sharp Shooter, 6 Million ways or any other overplayed classic that any old raver can roll of, Babylon is for the headz, far from a hidden gem, but most definately a stone cold classic for those that know. A tune full of dark atmosphere, rolling amens, drum reverses, sirens and of course the infamous vocal sample taken from the seminal Rockers movie. The vocal has been used across many a tune from Furney to Pix3l, but no one touches its use in this tune. A host of remixes over the years, my choice being Carl's effort, tho DJ Future gave it a good seeing to recenetly, however I still always favour the original myself.

Heaven is a much more stripped back affair. Simple bassline but warm and powerful. Nice twisted teases of Circles and some tripped out samples to complete the mood. A good effort but no Babylon.
A Fucking Class A record from Undercover Agent.

Both sides are amazing. Side A is a battering ram of a track with its ridiculous bass, and stretched breaks. This is dance floor destruction and mayhem. Such an anthem. Side B is a much lighter affair, but it still has a great bouncy basslines, dreamy atmospheres and killer chopped beats.

Artwork nauseating?? Oh mate, really? This was such a part of the era when Jungle was around with graffiti and hip hop directly influencing Jungle producers and artists. For me this a defining piece of that era and in no way could I ever see it as nauseating.
I remember going into shops around Soho in London and seeing covers like this and just grabbing them and often not even bothering to listen on the deck stations, just rushing home, crank up my system and blast them out - Oh,... the good ole days

Iv'e never quite understood how the artwork on the sleeve of this release turned out so nauseatingly bad. Someone went a bit mad with Photoshop back in the nineties ide say... However both sides of this record are absolute classics. Must have for any Junglist! ;)
