Discogs seller Shit-list (beware):
Badgerbreaks: shipped damaged (unplayable) records, I sent proof, he kept promising refund until feedback time limit lapsed, now obviously ignoring me
Deejay_rls: shipped damaged (unplayable) records, he refused to refund

1 = shut up
2 = annoying
3 = background / filler tunes, wouldn't think to play
4= I'd play in good set
5 = Well done, creative, personal favorite & go-to


I'll consider offers, but be prepared to come correct, ($)een?

Slept on this one too long... 5/5-star 4-track EP, sick production / mix / mastering / cut / press ... all ruffneck junglists need this in their collection

Anyone know what the extra replacement label stickers were for? I thought maybe they were to fix misprints, but I don't see any problems with the ones on the plates...

All about A1 - killer jungle jazz tune, well done!

A2 is good too but nothing unique, kinda been done to death.

Neither of the B sides do much for me even though I like breakcore and amen raggatek. Not vinyl-worthy IMHO

woiyy .. some exellent RETRO [style] VS. NEW [sound] here.. all great 93-94 throwbacks, but *B1* - "Affairs 94 Dubplate Mix" is the jam for me personally

sturdy ~180g press too

5/5 just for that Tim Reaper track... taking lessons from Phuture-T maybe ;-)
Perfect drumfunk thing with intro and break reminding me of '95 Luke Vibert.

"Stay High" is a nice riddim on the minimalistical tip, I dig it too.

Definitely in my top 20 releases of 2017. Both sides are unique and complex drumfunk business, but Fugitive Drummer stands out as an epic tune; I can listen to this plate over and over again.

Phuture-T has become a "buy on sight" producer for me. ... See full review

ok yeah, the A side can fuck right off, but the B side is a 4-star tune. Makes proper use of dub siren and dub/reverb techniques.. clean production & H E A V Y. Maybe a bit "jumpup" for people's taste, but plenty new-released tunes are ... See full review

B1 on my copy skips like a motherfucker (both my decks) ever since I got it fresh -- several times throughout the track.

Is it just my copy or something fucky with the stamper?

Disc 1 doesn't do much for me. Bought for Disc 2, the jungle/dnb tracks. Expertly diced & scattered breaks & samples + sci-fi atmospheres, reminiscent of 94-95 T.Power / Atomic Dog in particular.

Some of the alltime best kid lib jungle on this 2x12, all mastered/cut by Simon/The Exchange. Dope artsy label & cover art too.

Bonus (for 1210-M5G operators) -

At 45rpm, the full A side and B1, pitched down to -10 = great drumfunk drum'n'bass/jungle

I'm happy that dRamatic kept the classic '94 jungle mashup aesthetics and just re-vamped all parts of the originals rather than going the Bladerunner/Serum route of blasting nu-style repetitive rinse over the samples & hooks.

Aside from the '93 sound quality which I have to assume is on purpose to compliment the style of the tracks, I do hear a few little clicks on B side and some overdrive in the cutting of A side, but nothing upsetting. Did you check your stylus?
