This release was the first to showcase (and name check) a new style of music that emerged from the ashes of rave and had mutated from the Darkcore subgenre. Whereas the latter eschewed the helium vocals and "toytown" samples (lovingly embraced by the nascent Happy Hardcore scene), the compliation title hints at the focus of the tracks in this compilation and where a newer style of music was moving towards. The tracklisting is chronological, with the link from Darkcore to D & B highlighted by the first three tracks - 'The Dark Stranger', the beat-driven 'Warpdrive', and the Uncle 22 remix. We are treated to the rapid machine-gun beats of Subnation's 'Scottie' and the Mad P-sampling 'The Way' along the way, but the overiding focus of the compilation is the emergence of the reggae/ragga vocal sample, showcased by at least two-thirds of the tracks here. The highlights however, are the two releases that do not rely on either the 'dark' or ragga vocal notions, namely 'Spiritual Aura' and 'Music Box'. Perhaps it is credit to the (reputation of the) producers involved, but these tracks still sound as fresh as they did back in 1993/94.
