"Warped" (B1) contains even a sample taken from "You Don't Know" by Serious Intention (1984).

Daniel is a legend & this is my favourite Balihu release from an impressive back catalogue! The minimal production & strange vocal samples give the music a kind of eerie quality that echoes with the voices of another age.

I heard some story about who produced this the first time I heard Davey Dave drop it up in Duluth, then it took me months to find my own copy of it. One of those records you can identify at 200 paces and you get out of breath because you have to just run like a freak to get to some spot close by the speakers to start dancing by the time the second wave of vocals hits. Years later I lost a t-shirt and some booking fees because one of the guys (T.M.) on the thank you list got grabby. Perfect for the on a tangent digging in the crates dropping gems material, pick a track they all rock in one way or another.

Very raw, weird, underproduced, completely sampled house. Nearly as good as BAL003.
