All about the black crack version.. A very welcome return to releasing music from F.B.D. ..what a great tune ! That and Mantra's tunes are my favourite ..it's all decent though depending on what you like.

I'd really recommend this, 4 heavyweight tracks and the artwork on the disc is amazing

Tunes themselves are amazing, with the only non-amen tune from Verb perhaps my favorite, but with a picture disc, of course the sound quality is compromised a bit. With Unknown Elements #1, I thought the highs were heavily compromised. With the mastering on #2, I feel as though the mids are muddled. Better mastering than #1, but still not as crisp as standard black wax. Tunes=5/5, but picture disc clarity lacks.

The stand out track IHMO is FBD Project's Nema - this has the 94/95 vibe just oozing from it and is highly reminiscent of Origination's Maracas Beach (which is one of my favourite 'intelligent/chilled out pieces of DNB ever). Lots of layered textures, clever changes and mounting tension through out it. Needless to say it hasn't left my turntable much since I got it

Powder of life is a decent bruiser of a tune but is one which you can hear from a lot of producers today.
The others are not quite my cup of tea but as an E.P, I reckon this has got something for everyone

All in all ,a pretty essential purcahse
