Welcome to the dark side. Goldie's label and Grooverider's club of the same family have earned the reputation of housing drum & bass's finest hardcore talents, and Platinum Breakz is an appetizing taster plate for those who like their beats and sounds forbodingly apocalyptic. This two-disc set includes late-night urban soundtracks from Photek, Dillinja, Lemon D, and J Magik as well as some hauntingly poignant vocal work. But the prize moments here belong to Doc Scott, who envelops the ears with waves of futuristic hardcore, and Source Direct, who drop the blackness about as deep, dark, and solid as drum & bass can get. Bristling as it does with cold technology and brutal breakbeats, Platinum Breakz is a perfect soundtrack for the millennial culture. --Steffan Chirazi
Pretty damn good (I am understating)

"Oh, man, this cd is GREAT!! I bought this cd when I wasnt such a big dnb hed, which was about 4 years ago, AND I STILL LOVE IT!!! It goes through so many stylez of DnB and is part time really nice and neat (with the fitting harbeatz naturally) but then on other times you will listen to tracks that will beat you and tell you "I AM HARDCORE" and all you will do is just stare and nod with youre head! The best tracks on this cd are (in my oppinion) the last four tracks on CD2. THOSE TRACKS ARE SOME OF THE DARKEST, MOST EVIL AND FASTEST TRACKS I HAVE HEARD (and I have been into dnb for quite a while now)!! I love it! Those are some of the finest tracks out there!
Are you new to DnB and want to explore what this genre has to offer? GET THIS CD! Are you a DnB Hed just like I am and are looking for a good compilation? GET THIS CD!"

"This double disc set is probably the only DnB CD you need for a very long time. I've had this for about six years now and I'm still picking it up for a spin at least once in a month. The line-up is sharp, the sounds are cutting edge, even in todays scene and the sheer quality of these tracks leaves you mouth open and utterly satisfied.
Peshay's Nocturnal must be one of the darkest and most powerful DnB tunes ever. Photek always delivers. Scotty gives out his repertoire of sniper shooting snares and beautiful, yet grim soundscapes and all the others prove to be on top of the movement as well. This CD is almost solely responsible for me being such a DnB-head ever since I got it. This is DnB at it's darkest, tightest and finest.
Thank god for the Metalheadz."

"The year was 1996 and drum and bass was just beginning to gain recognition worldwide. Producers at the forefront of the genre were entangled in an exciting adventure, creating a new sound. Not satisfied with heavy basslines or kickin' breaks, many of the pioneering producers embraced soul, funk, jazz, reggae, and even classical to enrich this new sound.
And then we have the first series of Platinum Breakz. The producer of the groundbreaking "Timeless" album alongside some of the best producers serving up soulful slices of drum and bass with a new hard edge. Beats never sounded this good. Though such innovative days were shortlived, they have been encapsuled in time on this special double disc. The sound of the future."
