    Several tunes such as "Goal", "Bounty Killers" and "Dead By Dawn" were released in 1989-1990. It's hard to believe since it sounds so fresh. It sounds as fresh as a lot of electronic music stuff made years, even decades later.

    Breakbeat combined with some movie dialogues and Chinatown-like sounds is a tremendous and innovative recipe.

    "Shaolin Buddha Finger" sets the tone at the outset. The exhale of a kung-fu fighter is used at the same time as the beats kick in. I guess it was not a common practice back in 1995 when this particular choon came out. It's the song that is the closest to breakbeat for me.
    "Dead By Dawn" samples "Evil Dead II" an a few other horror movies. The notes heard from 3:20 onwards are really mesmerizing.
    "Bounty Killers II" is another personal highlight. It sounds so exotic and entertaining, you feel transported into a Jackie Chan movie.
    "Goal" is the only tune that features a Spanish commentator celebrating a goal. I adore the passage starting at 2:05 with this echoing industrial loop and those breakbeats. Again, being released in 1989 is incredible.
    At last, my favorite choon "Hubba Hubba Hubba" slows down the tempo and features brilliant instrumentals from faraway places. It's a perfect track to chill out.

    More of a compilation than a real album, these "Nine Deadly Venoms" will definitely increase the quality of your playlist, no matter if it's for playing Street Fighter, for watching Karate Kid or hanging out somewhere in Asia or in a Chinatown.

      J Saul Kane expanded upon his earlier work (under the moniker Eon) by mixing together breakbeat, dub and house with samples from movie soundtracks. He also formed a company to distribute Hong Kong kung fu flicks in the UK! The result was a unique style which has now been copied by many.

      This album collects some of the best early Depth Charge tracks together. Sublimely mad breakbeat tunes such as 'Shaloin Buddha Finger' sit alongside virtual dub plates such as 'Dead By Dawn'. The choice of movie samples (Sergio Leone westerns, kung fu flicks, Sam Raimis 'Evil Dead') all conspire to produce a rollicking, atmospheric album which absolutely does not dissapoint.
