Here’s an exceptional underrated 94 banger from a small label called Quality Control. This EP is the first of just a couple releases on that label, and it’s definitely a strong start. On the A side (featured here) we get a deep-n-dark think & cold sweat breakbeat flex-out, drenched in delay with ominous synths and vocal snippets peppererd throughout… a bit reminiscent of DJ Buz “Slave” to my ears, mostly in terms of the sound palette, also because it nails the darker-side-of-jungle sounds at the time. The surface similarity to “slave” is no surprise given the fact that Nico from No U Turn produced and engineered this, and wrote the flip side himself under the alias NKC. Given how cheap this record is, if you like your 94 darkside then this is pretty much a must-buy in my view… check it yourself and see if you agree!
