    maybe the biggest tune of that of the biggest tunes of the absolute masterpiece. A testament of DJ SS's ability to follow his creative voice and execute it to the maximum without any reservation.

    if Beethoven made jungle it would be Rollidge

      Imagine buying a record and the bonus track was the killer tune?

      Rollidge is just that. Absolutely killed every Jungle dancefloor in the world.

      Should be in every drum n bass dj's box. Fact

        United (Grooverider Remix) Is just on another level, at the time it was the best tune out .. It stopped me dead! It still gives me goose bumps. The intro is other worldly and when it drops its another mission to get your head round the samples and the drum patterns and rolling bassline. You have to play it loud!! You can't play this tune at low volume. It's such a complex tune, it gives you no breathing space apart from the short amens and they are beautiful mixed with the vocal... As you can see I love this track its way up there .. a monumental bad man killer tune of the highest order.

          I think this was the first appearance of Rollidge on vinyl as a bonus track on this release. All 3 tracks are superb, up to the usual high quality tuneage from Formation (SS), and like most people I think Rollidge is the standout track. Caned by everyone in 95, I remember SS spinning this at a night in Bremen in Germany and the place went nuts. Classic jungle that should be in any jungle DJ's record box. Right up there with Valley of the Shadows, Music Box, and other such classics from that era. Pure gold.

                easily one of the best drum n bass/jungle 12"s of that era,all tracks dope.
                Rollidge is the killer tho...gotta play it all the way thru, gets the crowd going mental everytime : )
