      I remember buying a copy of this years after getting my hands on the mixed version. In pre-internet days you just had to pick up what was available, but after rinsing out the mix CD I just had to get my hands on the unmixed version too.

      "Counterforce" showcases the very best of early deep and atmospheric drum & bass perfectly and features a whole host of rare jungle gems that were often overlooked by other compilations which tended to focus on the more ragga/early jump-up styles. From the.opening chimes of Crystl's lush reworking of DJ Tamsin & The Monk's "A Better Place" to the D&B relick of Zero B's rave anthem "Lock Up" (also by DJ Crystal). The album is an onslaught of rolling breaks, booming bass and soothing synths.

      There's a touch of darkside in the selection with Hyper-On Experience "Disturbance", Bay B Kane's menacing "A Better Place (Remix)" and Inna Rhythm's horror flick sampling "Carrie". My personal favourites are Lemon D's sublime "Deep Space (I See Sunshine)" (which incidentally is the "Remix Part 1" from the Planet Earth Recordings "Phuture Shock EP". I don't know why it's called the "Original Drum & Space Mix" on here?). And Flynn & Flora's tearing, yet equally gorgeous "Dream Of You" (R.I.P. Flora).

      You cannot go wrong with picking up either the mixed or unmixed versions of "Counterforce". An absolute gem of an album.

        "Counterforce" is one of my favourite early drum & bass mixes ever since picking it up back in '94. I also had to purchase the unmixed version in order to get my hands on classics such as "Deep Space (I See Sunshine)", "Disturbance", Dream Of You " and those mixes of "A Better Place ".

        I was also surprised at Orbital's take on D&B here with"Are We Here?". I am presuming that the mix here is a condensed version of the 15 minutes epic on "Snivelisation" as I have never been able to find it anywhere.

        All in all it's a tight blend of D&B rarities from the early days of jungle and highly recommended.

          My version of this mixed CD has a yellow cover, seems to be an U.S. Version.
          By the way: one of the best Drum and Bass Mixes ever! Simply wonderful!

            This is a great comp of deep beats like it says. It was one of my first intros to Drum and Bass in the early days of YouTube, back when I was still a young pup discovering things.

            Perfect for any jungle enthusiast looking for a strong album of that classic atmospheric jungle sound. Lotta pads, lotta breaks. Phenomenally produced and sequenced. These cats still can't top Crystl

              an absolute essential purchase for fans of the early to mid 90's jungle scene. As the title suggests all of the tunes are of a deep musical style here when certain producers really were pushing the boundaries of what was possible, not only musically but production wise. Featuring tracks from the scenes more forward thinking labels of that time making this one of the very best jungle comps out there.
