    Sicknote was the one played in sets - it's a brutal roller that was the pinnacle of the sound Virus / True Playaz / Trouble on Vinyl were pushing at the time

        Watermelon is such a unique tune, manages to be dark, grimey yet super funky all at the same time. In my all time top 10 dnb tunes for sure. Mix it with Silver Blade for all out warfare!

          dinnum yes there are two separate versions of this release with different runout numbers.

          My version has the following runout numbers:

          A side: VRS 004 A-01-01-
          AA side: VRS 004 AA-01-01-

          And the labels are transposed. The A side is incorrectly labelled Watermelon and vice versa.

            So thanks to some drunken confusion I own two copies of this - one of them is mislabelled as one states the super funky but slower tempo tune as Watermelon, the other as Sicknote... anyone else has this?

                Watermelon is on its own level of future funk. Untouchable, without any doubt. The vocal bassline, the weird pads, the clinical tight af drums. I can appreciate the flip for sure, the big band stabs are a nice touch. Great drums and all, but its just not the timeless monstrosity that watermelon is.

                    I still remember walking into my local record shop (Bitin back in Gravesend, UK) back in 99 and seeing a new delivery arrive, and a fresh full artwork copy of 'Watermelon' being pulled out. My face just lit up with joy as i had been after this since i had first heard it! This was one of the best feelings of going into a record shop and picking up a tune you were desperately after, the great memories of that era.

                    Both tunes are absolutely amazing and showcase the talent these two dnb pioneers possessed from an early age. A must have record for any dnb fan
