Why did XL Recordings choose Prodigy over SL2? Heavens know? bUT INNA 2019 I think both groups should have had equal shares in the musical pie?

Way In My Brain Remix is a sweet as tune, however in my opinion the weakest on here. SLectro is just pure class, this is how HpHop BeBop shouldve sounded you can never unhear this and long for the energy of this Hardcore version. Aftershock is such a Jungle Techno beast, works well in a mix and is just nitty gritty in a class of Anthill Mob´s Black Rushin or Tango stuff etc. As if that wasnt enought there´s Drumbeats: A stone cold classic. One of the strongest 4 trackers of the genre in my opinion

This in my opinion is SL2's best release even better than some of slipmatts solo projects like breaking free/hear me et el on account of drumbeats which contains one of the best piano sections ever created in a hardcore track its in my top 5 along with the Prodigy "Your Love" and 2 Xtreme Xtremity because it captures the essence of raving and the emotional side, Whats also notable is the beats classic amens and sped vocals but its the piano section which makes me shiver not many tracks make me shiver this one does. It was very popular back in the day but still remained an underground classic i cant say the same for SL2's other releases.As for the other tracks there OK nothing special. The remix of way in my brain is not as good as the original but it still sounds OK as does the others but for me "Drumbeats" is in a class of its own.

Amazing that none of the reviews below have mentioned Drumbeats - a wicked track with crashing amens and a superb piano line, played in many a late 92 set. What's great is that you can get such a good tune for such little money.

The remix of Way In My Brain fails to live up to the original which is more of a statement about the greatness of the original more than anything. However, I was looking for something a bit more inspired than a rehash, but SLEctro made up for it without actually pushing the EP into classic material. If you liked Way In My Brain on here, definitely check out the original if you haven't already, it is superior in nearly every way. Slipmatt was doing much greater things under the moniker of SMD by this time anyway.

No matter how uncreative might have been the sample, this was a huge track and I'm sure it brought to a broader listening audience the original Jamaican classic. The same way their other tune "On A Ragga Tip" did to Jah Screechy's "Walk & Skank", in a more blatant fashion.
If you will, mind the flip to this tune, "SL Electro", which rips off "Hip Hop Be Bop" unashamedly, with great results. Astounding EP, surely one of the best of that era.
Personally, I see sampling (at least well done) being about that: not just tools, but also education.

"Way In My Brain" samples rather un-creatively what is considered by some the first modern digital "ragga" track "Wayne Smith - Under Me Sleng Teng, ©February 23, 1985 Greensleeves Records 12'' (Jamaica)" of which i do not know the catalogue # :) (tell me please) "Paul Blake & The Blood Fire Posse - Rub A Dub Soidier" seems all digital and may have been 84-83 tho..
