    LTJ Bukem was playing this as early as October 1992.

        Classics!!! Hardcore/Jungle was probably one of the best musical movements ever. For those that were there you know. For those that missed out...unlucky

                  Original hardcore tunes, top quality, music producer for the people. Go look at his youtube channel. This needs a reissue Brian ;)

                    I really hope Brian Johnson does a repress of this record. I have a copy but the sound quality is just awful. I know Brian is into re-releasing his stuff so hopefully he will do this. I might even be up for a .WAV file just so I can hear "Itch it up my selector" in high fidelity.

                    Edit 02/16/19: I recently picked up a NM copy of this record and "Itch it up my selector" sounds just as bad as my VG+ copy. I think at this point that the entire production run of this record has mastering issues with "Itch it up". I find it comical that the version that Raymond "Grooverider" Bingham used on his Grooverider Alive CD had better sound quality. I'm assuming he was using a dubplate too which are notorious for having really bad quality sound. This is very strange. Hopefully Brian Johnson will eventually remaster this great track and NO he never got back to me on youtube but he is having fun with his gaming bass speaker backpack so that's good for everybody. *chuckle*

                      All crew hold tight is a ruff tune but there is a point where the bass goes totally mental and distorts like hell
