Desire (Z mix) soothingly brilliant! What I would call a Bukem tune.. Not sure I would describe the tune as darkness at all. All 3 tracks are worthy but that tune is the standout for me.

Absolutely tearing EP from Swift & Zinc. 'It's Time' is a tune of contrasts with the soothing female vocals and synth sections competing with pretty complex amen choppage. A very strong A-Side track.
However the real surprise for me was track B1, 'Dezire (Z Mix). Starting off with water sound effects the track introduces a steady breakbeat with soulful 'hey-ayy-ay-ayyy' male vocals. Then a simple, but cheese-free, bouncing bassline enters the fray along with a thundering amen break. These in turn are then joined by oriental sounding synths making 'Dezire' a thouroughly joyous sounding track, perfectly mixing rough with smooth elements. Was well chuffed to discover that after hearing this track loadsa times on an old Peshay Mix CD, that I had actually bought and forgotten this EP way back in '95 from my record shop's bargain bin.
'The Secret' is of a similar vein as the previous tracks, but with a more moody vibe to it. A well recommended EP for anyone who likes early Peshay styles of jungle/drum & bass.
