"Charlie Don't Surf" ingeniously mixes the guitar from Badder Than Evil's "Hot Wheels" with the bass from Jimmy Castor Bunch's "It's Just Begun". Whilst Zeb Roc Ski & Stieber Twins had already sampled the two on "Breakers Revenge 93", they hadn't combined them in the same innovative way that Deadly did. Brilliant development in every department, from the drums to the bassline to the melody, which steadily build to a climactic, cinematic finale. The title references Robert Duvall's classic line about the Viet Cong ("Charlie") from the 1969 film, "Apocalypse Now." ★★★★★

"Brooklyn Scraps" is a big beat cut and paste samplefest that Double Dee & Steinski would have been proud of. Features snippets of the Bee Gees' "More Than A Woman", Greg Nice's "Set It Off", and the Steve Miller Band's "Fly Like An Eagle", but really takes off when Sly & the Family Stone's "Stand! " combines with Deadly's hallmark "Mona Lisa" break beat. ★★★★★

"We Took Pelham" has a rockier break beat than the album version, and "Lopez OST" is a fine piece of melancholic trip hop. ★★★★

Deadly Avenger, the man with the plan and one to look out for in 2002! The Illicit EP highlights a small taste of Damon Baxter's sound which consists of funky breaks, heavy soundtrack sampling and old school hip hop flavor. Guaranteed to rock any dancefloor!
