    I have a copy of this which has the yellow and black Slammin' Vinyl logo on both sides (no tracklist), but it isn't listed here. Does anyone else have it?

      Anyone else have some issues with the EQ levels on both sides of this? my original copy from 92 has always sounded like it was recorded with all levels in the red proper noticeable on the bangin parts of the tracks?! quality proper hardcore though :)

          Got this and love it so much! this was from a time when hardcore was speeding up and was slowly becoming jungle but right on the cusp so was named by many as 'hardcore jungle'. This came out in 92 and was ahead of its time, I love the lo fi samples and the ruff n tuff sound to it all its an absolute must have! great as a bridge sort of tune going form old skool hardcore into jungle mid set.

            This ep was cained back in the day,it’s a bit ruff round the edges but that’s the beauty of this music from this time,unpolished hardcore,3 wicked tracks,love heavy duty,that’s my jam.
