You like breakcore? Well this is where it's at. Ambush was instrumental in getting the sound where it is today and this release contains all of the best tracks that came out on the label. Before the scene and sound took on that annoying tone of irony, there was just aggression in the form of this weird music that wasn't jungle and wasn't gabber, but some strange hybrid of the two. Sure, DHR did it first, but the Ambush sound lacked the cheesy rhetoric and just seemed more... real. This is the ultimate Ambush collection and it is utterly essential for anyone who likes their amens rough around the edges.
