i was one of the ones lucky enough to hear dillinja - fast car when it was first released in 2003 and since that day i have felt that my life is finally complete. its has been stuck in my head every day for the past seven years now and i still cant get enough of it. on my ipod the only song i have ever bothered, or needed to put on it is dillinja - fast car, which i play on repeat.

pionneering tunes like these only come along once every couple of hundred thousand years. the last tune of this calibre was produced by three troglodites in a cave when they discovered percussion by hitting the side of their cave in anger with a wooden club when they found out they wouldn't be able to hear dillinja - fast car in their lifetimes, something for which we can be grateful for.

what im trying to say is that this is a timeless classic.

i think this song also carries a message, and its a clear and simple one, what dillinja is telling us is that someday a time will come when the oil reserves will have been depleted. there will be a day when there exists only renewable energy. on that day there will be no fast cars only dillinja - fast car, and on that day we will listen to this masterpiece, and reminisce.

possibly one of the best dnb tunes ever written. Dillinja's amazing foresight in combining car samples, tearout bass and great synths is unparralled. The best bit is in the middle eight where it appears the "fast car" of the title crashes and all you can hear is a bang and a honkhonk.

great tune
