    I'm probably going to get slated for this, but always felt like Quest is kind of boring. Granted it sounds weighty through a big rig, but it doesn't really go anywhere, and there are loads of better tunes using that kind of bass sound (Friday, Truly One, Fire and Water etc.)

    Night Flight, on the other hand, is an absolute banger. One of the most iconic dnb basslines of all time, and the clattery amens on the second drop cement this tune's legendary status. I must have heard it thousands of times and I've never got bored of it, particularly in Andy C sets where he drops it out of nowhere and the dance explodes. Essential stuff.

              Both tracks have wicked sub bassline's and cool funky beats and will and have rocked many a DB dancefloor, a great EP:)

                Quest is absolute mayhem with that bassline and techy beats...... and Nightflight just rolls into one of the sickest second phases ever................ one of the best D&B 12s.... a pinnacle of the genre

                  I love this record. I always come back to it and drop it in the mix to this day. The fluid baseline of Quest is epic, and the breaks clatter any sound system. The structural key changes and amen rollers of Night Flight get better every time you listen. Nice one Ram. Detailed and perfected. Why don't they make them like this anymore.

                    Works really well swopping bases out with the Helicopter tune :P

                      Quest is deceivingly devastating. If you listen to it at home you just wouldn't know. On a phat soundsystem, it really, really, REALLY hurts.

                      Interestingly, the beginning isn't dissimilar to Shimon and Andy C's "Body Rock" magnum opus made five years later...
