Great release. What's made this so expensive though? Just curious.

I have a copy of this but imagine the future has not been centred on the wax, creating a strange sounding recording. Has anybody else got this press?

While ''R Type'' is a typical later Jungle 1994 style track rather than it's released date, it is very boring for my taste and very simple. For me is all about the totally different b-side ''imagine the future'' with it's previous darkside breakbeat/hardcore 1993 vibe, a track that sounds like something from RAM records of that era. Am i the only one who prefers the b-side of this release?

Seminal. Perfect Jungle / DnB track. Hard, Minimal, Dark, Deep, Rolling with a wicked bassline. I remember first hearing this at Lazerdrome in 93, and going back every week to hear it again. A classic of the era.

Why is this so good? You can't really describe it; but every part of this track is so right in a way that pretenders could never identify. The vibe is just straight up proper jungle; and it's no fucking joke. Serious shit.

This is one of the rare tracks that always and I mean ALWAYS gets a reaction and garners respect for the DJ. Just drop it.

Oh my gosh! This tune was actually produced by Lime's girlfriend, Jo(not sure if she still is, but she was at the time). Who'd have thunk that a girl could make such an amazingly dark roller (no offense Jo if you're reading!).

The bassline is so hard that it could punch a hole through your Nan's face! The beats and percussion for this track are also really well done, just simply adding and dropping out layers keeps the whole track moving along nicely. Then the reversed 'R-Type' computer game theme running over the top (at least that's what I think it is) acting as the melody just adds to the overall darkness of the track and then to top it off you have the beautiful vocoded 'Holographic imaging...Active' and 'Holographic imaging....Compute' samples (Also from the game I think).

This is the best example of a dark rolling D & B track I have ever come across. Big up Jo, sick!
