Smart move from Rephlex issuing these recordings that have vanished into early UK hip-hop mythology. This uncompromising underground crew (originally formed in 1985) are tight, backed by dope beats, raw and tough like The Bomb Squad/ Public Enemy. These tracks come from an era when in my opinion hip hop had so much more energy, before MC's were simply getting blunted, prime cuts like these were perfectly compatable with UK hardcore records and therefore were able to really move a crowd. Think Silvah Bullet or Hi -Jak tracks getting dropped at raves mixing in with early Shut Up and Dance records. What's so appealing about this collection is that it manages to sound of it's time but still remains fresh. Lyrically there is a good balance of humour and tales of urban culture, politics, beating rival crews and all that good stuff. Expect tough and powerful uptempo breaks, dark and raw apocalyptic samples, dope cutting and scratching and serious B-boy attitude. The vinyl edition comes with key selected tracks to get busy with on the 1210's while the CD comes with a bonus disc which is another extra album. High grade audio ammo > Posse's beware.
