Known for raw energy, uncompromising edge and the skull head that's become iconographic in drum & bass, the 10-year-old label is back with another collection of dancefloor goodies. Highly noteworthy on this compilation are Photek's haunting, complex "Age of Empire" and the eclectic beats and twists on John Rolodex & Synoflex's "Novocain." These two gems are supported by a foundation of fierce breaks and aggressive basslines that hold the remaining tracks together in a solid structure. Sadly the disc is unmixed, but it's nonetheless going to be a definite staple for any head.
