Like that Lockjaw used the ''Crazy Jungle Madness In My Brain'' sample. Originally from Anti Chaos - Crazy Jungle (Madness In My Brain). But I believe he sampled/remade it to sound like Search & Destroy's Deep In The Underground.

My favourite track on this Ruffneck record is Rough and Tough by Lockjaw. It has the Joycore sound that Lockjaw became known for. The main synth riff is a happy sound but with that rich Ruffneck engineering. Rough breakbeats, tough Ragga samples and a cheeky sampling of Ramirez's Baraonda. The second half of the track has the reappearance of THAT Lockjaw synth sound, heavily influenced by UK Breakbeat Hardcore. I miss that sound and its great to hear it again!

I can imagine most Ruffneck Soldiers will love My Balls & My Word, dark traditional Artcore taking massive samples from the movie, Scarface. I never noticed it before but my favourite piece of dialogue is: "you wanna play Ruff, OK!" Well played Mr. van Kerckhoven.

The vinyl is a beautiful Light Blue Marble design, looks and sounds awesome. Etched on the vinyl is JOHN 2:19, which in the bible means: Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days."

New Ruffneck record with an extra thick gloss sleeve and marbled vinyl, does this get any better! The ‘My Balls & My Word” is definitely the stand out track on this record. Probably one of the best tracks on the Ruffneck label to date.

Great Ruffneck release on beautiful marbled wax & a with nice designed sleeve.
Ruffneck delivers in my opinion the best release so far, since the label's revival in 2018.
Quick review from my side:
"My Balls & My Word" could easily have been released in '97 or so. What a fantastic track it is.
"Eater Of Despair" is a dark & atmospheric track that takes you back to the Supreme Intelligence era. I simply love it !
Love to hear some breakbeats & chipmunk voices in "Crazy Jungle". Wicked, but somehow it reminds me of Search & Destroy - Deep In The Underground ;)
"Rough &Tough" has that nice oldschool flavor which puts a smile on your face. Nice to see Lockjaw is back in business !

Would be nice to see tracks by Comababy, Predator or Nosferatu on future releases too ;)

Ruff To The Core !!!

Excellent release - extra HQ thick sleeved bomb !! Great tracks - I love the use of samples from Al Pacino in My Balls & My word. Oldschool early rave kicks … just brilliant. Thank god somebody is pressing some good hardcore on vinyl :) ! Great work also from Lock Jaw - big huge kicks and the typical sounds - MASTER !! Keep it up Ruffneck - keep em coming !!
