Buy this on site... wicked EP from 1993 but sounds more like late 1992.

All four tracks are fairly short, which I think works well in favor of it. Doesn't come across as dated at all, and hits really hard. Great textures and samples on this thing. Well done.

The Bailiff EP has that wicked touch of grit and compression. It is features the contrast between fast and slow and is definitely hardcore. The textures are ugly and magnificent. A2 juxtaposes turntablism with dark haunting synth work. B1 works a frenetic drum sequence with surreal vocal samples, "you gone, you gone, you gone" that function like an acid trip. B2 is the reason I bought this EP, I heard this on some pirate radio set a while ago and found ID after hitting up the collective ears of nostalgia. I didn't even mention A1, but it is fast, and energetic. This EP is a distinguishing mark in history.

It seems that in the last few years collectors of hardcore such as myself have been searching for the more underground breakbeat releases that were only ever pressed in small numbers on white labels, released to a hanfull of shops before ending up on the decks as some hiddem gem played within a set that passed you by back in the day.

This is one of those 12's.

Its also great when you buy a 4 tracker for 1 tune and get that added extra of the others standing up against it quite nicely thank you.

So all in all Fug001 is a great whitey. The main track for me has lovely dark pads, nice unsetlling beats all driven by a bassline that puts the right amount of pressure onto the 2 step snare. I also love the main tunes sample..."my mind is going"

The other stand out track comes on the same side and again takes you on a dark unsettling journey. Good use of the female vocal sample, the bassline is just FAT and the melodies are made up of over sequencing pad samples together to make a more controlled sound that really works for this tune.

Only downside is the compression so many of us relate to as far as 93 tunes go, but in all honesty so many of the tunes i own are the same so no bother in finding a good mixing partner.
