Step into hostile territory

"Every track on he growls at you with gut wrenchingly gorged-up basslines backed up by stinging, whiplash beats at an unhealthy, rabid pace. But what makes these guys so amazing is that throughout all this madness they mange to hit you with everything with dead on precision. You'll see what I mean listening to "computer state" and especially "two masks" my personal favorite. Now-a-days I find allot of DNB artist lay a bassline down along with a drum loop that ride throughout the track, not letting them interact at all with each other. But here the drums, samples, and bassline really smack and push each other around giving the track a nice, un-monotonous flow. These guys have got talent.So sit back, play it loud and drop it real hard."

"Source Direct were key in defining the technical, breaks driven sound of the mid-90's. Possibly th most sorely missed producers of that era who hung it up a year or so after the release of Exorcise the Demons. Jim returned in 1999 and even resurrected the SD imprint for a run that included the stomper "Yo Bitch" as well as a few others. It was really the labels original series of tunes (Snake style, etc)that pushed the SD sound at its peak. THe platinum breaks selection and subsequently Controlled Developments showed a maturing process which extended to 'Exorcise'. Most fans agree that though SD pushed forward, the prime of their sound is stil the tunes they made from 94-96, Controlled being the only easily obtainable record."
I love this CD!

"I first heard "Call & Response" in the movie "Blade," not knowing exactly what song Deacon Frost was listening to. After my loooong fruitless search I finally came here and found out what it was (duh!). I fell in love with the CD and now I'm craving for more. I wouldn't say that Controlled Developments is very dark in it's fantastic drum and bass beats, but it is dark and lovely. My personal faves are tracks 1 & 3."
