really? i revisited that recently and was massively underwhelmed.

most of the tracks on this mix are still well before halfstep was settled on by skream, benga loefah et al as the default dubstep structure. not that i don't have a LOT of love for halfstep stuff, but for Benga in particular i find this bleepy, grimey, garagey period to be much more rewarding..

ha! i haven't played it in a few years, maybe i should revisit it too before commenting! guess i meant it's better than much of his more recent stuff (although i actually liked much of "afro warrior").

Skank was/is such a tune. Reminds me of Hatcha and Crazy D on Upfront when the sound was just turning.

I got my Blue version
