so fuckin sick that it actually fully rebooted the techno part of my brain that I buried back when I found jungle drum'n'bass

Mine arrived a little warped too. I just figured it was from the very long journey during the hottest time of the year. I hope they didn't have a mishap with the full production

Unique tunes. I actually have a 6th track (on white label copy) -- B3.. Tripped out oddstep acid jungle @ 170bpm. Anyone know the story? Are there 2 pressings? ..... or did the submitter here just miss it on the tracklist?

Underrated old school east-coast-US hardstep / hipstep / junkyard ANTHEMS by the man like DJ Wally/Pish-Posh. I danced my ass off and caned the shit out of both sides when it was fresh out. Recently dug it out of the crates and regained my ... See full review

Absolutely wicked '94-style amen smasheroos. Perfect samples & arrangement, on par with GBW material (if not from GBW?). Timesless Vintage Vibes on both sides

What a different kinda style from LK's usual! Maximum intelligent retro d'n'b on both sides... well done, though not the easiest to drop innamix

mix & master getting better and better as the label progresses -- Much more uniform across tracks than #1 (though the tunes themselves were all the bee's tits, the sound varied widely)

what a trip. it's that authentic '93/94 underground / dubplate sound that only GBW crew can dish out..

vinyl sounds so proper, big up!

pressing flaws on my copy .. big, bumpy, audible dimple on A; less-audible, stretched-out dimple on B. B is definitely more playable

Bought this plate for A1, which is a 5/5 tuna between the amen/breaks and bassline alone.

The other 3 are quality tunes as well, just have to be in a very happy hardcore mood

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.
posted a review of Phuture T* - The Fugitive Drummer / Cold Sweat. over 2 years ago
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
