Grant Nelson's remix here is typical GN vibes, great track all around. Both tracks 2 and 3 'Groove In Me' and 'Summer' play quite nicely slower with a lower pitch in my opinion, as it really captures better the R&B feel of the vocals, which gets lost if ... See full review

Usually drum and bass albums that attempt to be jazzy with original compositions from live instrumentation tend to be rather bland and boring, often missing the fact that just because you pair a drum break with some rhodes and saxophone, it doesn't mean ... See full review

DJ Tonka's 'Late Checkout' mix is by far the best track, too bad the original speed of it here is not as good. Best speed is the way Tonka played it on his own album 'Peaktime', so faster and higher pitched.

yup, its on the next release (catalog # TAO-RD-002). different vocals, with slightly different instruments and arrangements. MrWO0d on youtube has a rip, and you can compare it to the one that Jonny Roberts has on his channel from this (TAO-RD-001) ... See full review

Check Persian's Bandcamp, 'Well, Well, Well' is there for £1. There's a version of 'Dub, Dub, Dub' there that sounds very similar to the one on this release.

IF YOU ARE GETTING THIS CD BECAUSE OF "E-Razor - Mantra" BEWARE: The quality of it is not even at 320kbps. The spek of it stops at around 15 Khz. It's a shame because this is the only CD that has the vinyl version of 'Mantra'. If you care about ... See full review

this release has a different intro for the original mix than heard elsewhere (at least with my copy). instead of starting with the "ba dum dum dummm" vocal sample, it starts with drums.

For once, it's not about Sunship, as he's been upstaged by the lesser known (but DAMN good) artist 12 Stone, with his knockout R&B remix, serving up broken beat patterns over a guitar melody with dubbed out synths in the back. Truly excellent stuff that ... See full review

As far as im aware, this is the only release that contains the lost tribe vocal remix with a time of 8:55. the 'disc one' release catalog 'HOOJ 73' has the lost tribe vocal remix at 8:51, which im sure is just the same except without the few seconds of ... See full review

cheers for this bro! i have the unreleased version that didn't come out on this vital essence release, with the sped up vocals, on a white label. always wanted that version digitally

the ones on Vital Essence have a different use of the vocals. they are stretched out, slower. the ones on this vinyl are sped up.

I thought it sounded so familiar. I listen to "Superstitious 97 (Love Mix)" all the time, so the melody here made me curious, but then i thought so many Trance tracks sound like each other so whatever lol

agreed. 'Reckless Theme' is one of the best jungle tekno tracks ever produced imo, and to know it came out in 1995 way after the 4x4 kick was dropped and everyone was into "intelligent" drum & bass, makes it even better.

This is sound system music, meant to be played on a proper bass rig... earphones don't even breach the level of depth this track can invoke. llennnn16 is actually DJ Wanka starting shit on Discogs.
