The Rotator track on here is definitely not his best. Normally, I would never think of using the words "Rotator" and "cheesy" in the same sentence, but the Incredible Hulk samples here just do not do it for me. And beyond that, I could almost swear I've heard the exact same synth riff in like the last three tracks of his. I don't know, this one just sort of falls flat.

The Dx3 track is nothing groundbreaking or anything like that, but great for mixing. This is the most in-your-face track on this record, though it's a little slower than what you might expect from him.

The real standouts here are the tracks by Knifehandchop and Belladonnakillz.

The Knifehandchop one is kind of somber, slow, pressurized jungle with a great melody and atmosphere and drum programming that shows a definite nod to the old-school. Most of his stuff I've heard is more on the fun and quirky side, but this is a seriously well-produced track and, to be honest, one of the best things I've heard in months.

Belladonnakillz comes with a track that is a little more upbeat but still on the jungle tip. It opens up with a haunting synth that is great for mixing in. Then you get a twisting, rave-y bassline and some nice drum programming.

Overall, this is a great EP and well worth picking up.
