adding myself to the list of people who really rate this release
ok, it's a bit looser + madder than other people place, but that shouldn't upset the reasonable listener...lovely, trippy, spacy shit

but so freakishly different, only P.P. Roy could do it

Found it in MVE in Greenwich for 50p yesterday : )

posted a comment on Rum & Black - ESQ / Slaves. over 4 years ago
The lush-as-fuck breakbeat on Slaves comes from Run DMC's 'I'm Not Going Out Like That', which became more popular in the late nineties as a tek-steppy DnB break
[it's also the break on ESQ, but mixed with half a bar of Renegade Soundwave's... See full review

Thought the year of release might be 1976, if 'Discovery' was an olympic theme..seems much more likely than 1971.
