I have heard Twisted on a Grooverider set from December 1992, so definitely being played on acetate or promo in late 92...

Most definitely 92 cause that's when I bought my copy which I still have! I would say ground braking because it was so far ahead at that time.. Absolutely wicked ep

This EP is from 92 not 93 as stated below,not sure what the fella is talking about with regards a promo sheet saying released 29th April 1993,has to be a different record,Twisted was originally on the flip of Terror in the Jungle by Doctor G (Invisible Man alias)on an unreleased acetate..The EP was way ahead of it's time and pretty sure this could well be considered along with a few others (Bay-B-Kane,various Reinforced etc..) as the inception of dark drum n bass.

Look at the promo sheet - it says 'Release Thursday 29th April [1993]'. Someone ought to change the release date accordingly.

As for the tunes, very dark, demonstrating a shift in sound, particularly emphasis in drums and bass as opposed to stabs and vocals, Invisible Man, though not exclusively, is responsible for jungle & drum and bass as we know it.

For me the stand out track on this EP is definitely Twisted!! Awesome dark intro with eerie vocal samples that give way to a double layered thrashy amen and sub bass that tears the place apart. Great for mixing with the end of bar cut outs. One of my all time fav darkside tracks.

The whole EP is excellent and The End is probably the most famous tune of the four with the haunting bell sample throughout.
However I assume (as I wasn't there) that On A Mission.. sounded like absolutely nothing else at the time.
It is incredibly fast, probably near 170bpm and focuses around minimal bleeps and sub bass, whilst a very 'drum and bass' beat rolls out.

It's tunes like this and Noise Factory - Breakage #4 which really did lay the blueprint that would be known as drum and bass a 3 or 4 years later.

Groundbreaking seminal Drum & Bass from Doctor G that when released was a completely new sound to me, lovely atmospheric strings, really tight programming, samples and drum loops. I still think this sounds fresh today (2007) so back in 92 it really was fantastic to hear this out on a massive system while out raving. Great Days! Its also worth checking out the second release by the Invisible Man as well as the other output from this label.
