Apparently, Vitamin K was junkie slang for ketamine back in the day this track came out. Despite of the drug related title and connotation, well in the spirit of their previous two EPs, it's a furious relentless proto jungle track, with fast and erratic breakbeats layed over a short repetitve melody. A really noteworthy excursion into a musical style which would shortly conquer London.
The remix of Illegal Subs (the track title was allegedly a word play as well, where it winked at prohibited substances as well as giving a nod to the potent level of sub bass this tune had - enough of it to be deemed illegal) is far from being as effective as the original, mainly due to the absense of the absolutely ferocious percussion and deep bass line. Luckily the original's timeless sample "You are the people of chemistry, the people of physics, the people of music, the people of civilization, the people of rhythm" is kept, or better yet, fractures of it are scratched into the track, while the whole sample in its entirety gets dropped around a minute before the track's up.
The 2 Bad Mice remix of Space Cakes is great as well, with more of the old school 'ardcore breakbeat madness, samples sounding like dwarfs high on helium and reggae vocals, all complemented with memorable synth leads.
Overall, this is every bit worth your money and time as the previous two Kaotic Chemistry EPs. For those interested in digging up some interesting old school rave classics, this would be a great place to start, plus EPs like this one tease the listener, giving him an initial venture, or attempt if you will, at what will later fully develop into d'n'b/jungle.
