"Proton" always reminds me of "Sonar", "Mutant Revisited", "Cutslo"... That time. Who was first?

This needs no introduction. The best Techstep album ever created and dare I say one of the best Drum and Bass albums ever regardless of what genre. The other label being Emotiff which pumped out some awesome Techstep in my opinion Doc Scott was instrumental in the early development of the sound on account of Drumz and Shadow Boxing. He would of been a clear inspiration for many artist of the genre.

Still the best.

The final word in techstep, this really is the ultimate collection of dark Drum & Bass. Every tune can be considered a classic, but stand outs have to be Lo and Damn Son, the latter in particular being a deliciously evil example of tension and release. The delayed drop is a master stroke, the Reece bass possibly the thickest and most indulgent of all NUT releases, the beats clatter and roll, like being in a cement mixer filled with rocks.

All in all, it's a fucking lethal album.

This 3*12" is simply one of the best record of my collection, all genres included. Ambiences are f*cking enjoyable, heavy, nervous, all that in a really subtle way (no flood/unnecessary noise). Darker and more penetrating than many recent or "harder" stuff.

One of the most brutal, exciting and angry pieces of drum and bass ever produced.In my humble opinion the use of the word 'dark' in terms of modern drum and bass is wildly misleading. Beats which vary from sounding like a zombie trudging through a swamp to a relentless amen underpinned by a twisting typhoon of bass, Ed Rush and company rather effectively described the despair and decay of grim inner city life (no pun intended) in the most exciting and exhilerating way possible. Highly recommended listening after a bad day at work.
