Atrocious. Don't be curious. Don't put yourself through it. You knew it would be bad. You can't unhear it once you've heard Perry Sugden "singing".

Hommage starts of pretty mellow but a big vocal in the middle really shifts it up a gear. Lovely selection of tunes; Grant's releases really are all "buy on sight" at the moment. He's really at the top of his game at the moment.

During the late noughties, Instra:Mental launched the autonomic podcast, which in turn introduced a new direction for drum & bass in general..a sound which was more experimental; stripped down and minimal.

Over the years that have passed since it's ... See full review

Looks like the mix coming this week (14.04.2017) is a different mix, it's marked as V2 and also, has a longer running time.

Yep, I've just bought the full release and it has the same issue.

Yes, correct. Quite a few old drum & bass references on this album, I thought. A1 is defo Goldie.
posted a review of Wax Stag - II. 7 months ago
This album is absolutely fantastic, musically. It's clearly harder than ever to write instrumental music that engages an audience but the actual musicality of this album is such high quality that it didn't need it. Every track is excellent. My favourite ... See full review

Great album. A bit rough round the edges but charming with it, that's obviously what gives the label's music its character. Lovely music.

This is a hypnotising house masterpiece, a track that could go on forever and never get boring. I first heard it on the Kerri Chandler Radio 1 Essential Mix and rapidly tracked down a copy on vinyl soon after...Clearly it's nigh-on impossible to find on ... See full review

posted a review of Doc Scott - Drumz '95 (Nasty Habits Remix) / Blue Skies. over 9 years ago
Drumz '95 is a bonefide drum & bass classic. Released at the dawn of the tech-step era, Doc Scott's break-switching-arrangement clearly influenced many future tracks, namely DJ Trace's seminal "Mutant Jazz" remix and Ed Rush's "Torque" album.

This release had a profound effect on me, particularly during my first listen to it; it was an experience I will always remember. It's not often these days that music makes my body tingle and shiver, but certain tracks on this album most definately had ... See full review

This is probably my favourite Alex Reece record, forget Pulp Fiction, this 12" was made at a time when drum and bass was really cutting edge, there were no rules, and originality was key!

"Playboys" mixes Rhodes (allbeit, ahem, borrowed from Bill ... See full review
posted a review of Ed Rush & Optical - Wormhole. over 11 years ago
This an unbelievable, era-defining, technically stunning d&b album that spawned hundreds of poor imitations! Ed Rush & Optical were, at this point in time, at the top of their game as producers in the dnb scene.
posted a review of Lee* / Tango / Gwange* - Legendary Volume 3. over 11 years ago
"2 Deep" is an unbelievably good "LTJ Bukem"-esque jungle track. It was absolutely blinding at the time it came out and personally speaking, I still can't get enough of it now, 12 years later !! If you're into the deeper side of drum & bass you have to ... See full review

This record really was one of me & my mate's favourite records during the mid-nineties; We both loved "Sweet Dreamz" at the time, and did so for numerous years that followed. However, as the years go on, I think "Your Destiny" has maintained more ... See full review

I own most of DJ Shadow's material from "Endtroducing" onwards, but it wasn't until very recently that I obtained this CD, and I have to say, if you liked "Entroducing" (I don't know anyone that doesn't!) then definately get this, because it is superb ... See full review

At first I was a bit unsure as this is the follow up to the now legendary Dr Octagon LP. However, since playing this LP through again recently, I really cannot say enough good things about it! Kool Keith's rhymes are really funny, the production is ... See full review
posted a review of Silent Witness - The Sands / Trench. over 12 years ago
For me, this was the best drum'n'bass record released in 2004; It's a classic; dark & moody, with excellent breaks and heavy but not over-the-top basslines.

The DJ Trace remix of "Mutant Jazz", sometimes referred to as "The Mutant", really blew up when it came out; It has a perfect combination of two switching breakbeats, which sound as though they're being crossfaded by a DJ, dark strings, spooky reversed ... See full review

It's a fairly well-known fact that the vinyl release of this mix is in fact an illegal bootleg copy that hit the shops without DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist's consent.

Grooverider's remix of Terrorist was marked on the 10" sleeve as Grooverider's Hardstep remix. I really love this track; it's an excellent example of the deep and moody jungle style that was around at the time.

The remix of "My Soul" by Boogie Times Tribe differs from the remix which appears on the original 12" single.

Although it has similar make-up in terms of drums/melodies, it has a distinctly different arrangement, and is four seconds shorter than the ... See full review

A terribly pointless cut-and-paste re-edit of Bell Head.

I still can't work out why MoWax actually even bothered to release this...
