This album was THE release of 1993. Heavyweight tunes. No fillers. This is what was being played in the dingy raves of East End London to the Hardcore massive with myself fortunately present! It showcases not only the Rave music (jungle tekno / breakbeat hardcore) but also the birth of the ruffer, gritty, urban Jungle with tracks like 'Babylon Timewarp', 'Original Badboy' and 'Sub Dub'. In fact, nearly every tune on this release smashed it and used to bring down the roof. If you're seeking to investigate early British electronic music of this nature, this is the one. 'Oioiiii! Just searching for me rizla, mate!'

Hard to find but well worth any amount! Clearly shows the early days of jungle when it was known as hardcore. Artists on this LP include DJ Red Alert, Rob Playford, Goldie (Rufige Cru), Doc Scott, and lots of other artists who are still around producing dnb under different names. Also includes some classic, essential jungle samples.
