This CD has class written all over it: it's made by someone called Shitmat, all the tracks bar one have Babylon in their names and all bar one feature the same jungle MC sample. The basic concept is to take a load of old pop songs, add some nasty breakcore beats and layer a sample over it. Ace of Base Babylon uses, as you ight expect, the only well known Ace of Base track, On a Ragga Shit is On a Ragga Tip redone and Jack$on Babylon uses Michael Jackosn tracks.
It sounds crap, but it isn't. This CD (or 2 LP set if you're that way inclined) is a work of genius containing nasty jungle versions of your favorite non-jungle tracks! It's even got Eye of the Tiger! Supposedly a normal release, this CD is in fact limited to the number of copies they can sell before someone's lawyers get involved. Get your copy now! (AB)
