This is really it. Though it is from a wave of more so “happy” Ruffneck releases, this is truly a gem. It might not be as boisterous and agressive as other Wedlock material, but it has back-to-back classics, both for mixing and listening. The title track is a straightforward, non-descript Artcore track, complete with the standard grinding synths and pounding bassline. It samples a reggae track (as one cannot be surprised by, considering the title) which is mixed in with a clean breakbeat to create a bouncy and driving atmosphere. The B side of this record is also of particular note, as it shows the versatility of Kerkhoven and his methods of production outside of the “Ruffneck” sound. “The Tower” is really something: balancing on a thin line between a hardtrance and a bouncy techno track, it has a catchy (but not happy) lead and a pumping, dancy bassline. “Norht, South, East, West” is a straight on Drum and Bass number, and an excellent one at that. It has a very organic and tribal feel to it, without being as cheesy as many other tracks of similar style seem to be. It is a perfect track to throw in a Gabber mix to keep the crowd on their toes.

Ruffneck is one of my all time favourite labels, and Wedlock is my preferred incarnation of Kerkhoven. This is up there as one of the best.
