No much to really say is there ? Pure genius's!! Volume wise people will always say they never made very much, and its true! But please apart from Rob Haigh (Omni Trio) show me tracks with more worldly chords (Amens), drama, and quality of production which put you in another world and made you listen so intensely? You can't really!! Intense are always forgotten in the conversation by many, until someone puts one their tracks on a deck to remind everyone. Listen to paradox, the genesis ep, drowse remixes... I'll say no more. There was never a more appropriate name for a crew, intense's tracks were and are a proper mind trip. I'll say it again pure genius's.

Intense have made one of the most valuable contributions to Drum & Bass from its conception and consistently over the years. Always injecting thought, mood, depth and true musicality of the highest order. Shame they release so little, but it's a case of quality over quantity.
