Never, ever failing to meet high unadulterated random beat-wave-head-fuckdupness, hold back on the shrooms...Jungle-ist beat structures mangled and nasty gum wrapped in narcotic sample bliss.

The Captain Pugwash theme gets chopped up and reconstituted as drum'n'bass for speed freaks, and there's even a sample from the Rebel MC's Street Tuff. Food for thought, indeed.
