Notes

Comes in a picture sleeve. Side A bears the Formation Records logo, side AA is the information side.

The front cover does not state "E.P." in the title whereas the record's centre labels do. At the very top edge of the front cover a tracklist appears and AA2 has an exclamation point (!) after the name. The etchings state the catalogue number as "FORM-40".

Tracks A1 and A2 are breakbeat / hardcore, AA1 is hardcore / jungle and AA2 is breakbeat / hardcore / techno.

Track AA1 samples vocals from "Yolanda - Your Time Is Up".

Special thanks to DJ Tango for 'Step Back In Time'. This EP is dedicated to the memory of Steven Short.

    the doubled up breaks over the 4x4 in source of all evil really give it a revolving afrobeat/africanised techno feeling. Pioneering.

      Ratty told me about this. The sleeves which say A "TATSE" of things to come are infact the original presses which have the misprint.
      The sleeves correctly spelt are infact a repress run

        NGL it's not v well pressed and/or mastered. It's quite good though.

            Step back in time is the one for me. Seem to remember hearing it on a tape, maybe Dreamscape, where the record kept jumping & had to be stopped. Used to love it when that happened

                    Heavily underrated EP... "Source of All Evil" is about as dark as it gets, ominous pads accompanied by sparse percussion in the intro, leading into complex doubled up breaks and bass.
