There seems to be two different vinyl pressings of this out there: one with "Day break" as A2 track, one with "Final approach". "Day break" has featured on the promo of J Majik's "Slow Motion" album and is a menacing masterpiece without a steady beat, while "Final approach" is a jazzy, mellow number.I have the vinyl version with "Final approach".All CD versions I've heard had "Day break" pressed on the CD, although some booklets will say "Final approach".
Awesome album for all the usual reasons but mine has C side Lemon D and Hidden Agenda pressed the same on both sides? Mine doesn't have Pulp Fiction or Spectrum... Odd that, still at least I have In My Life as only came out on this album :)
Pressing on mine is quite quiet. The tunes are bangin though of course
Platinum Breaks - Various (Metalheadz/London)Reviewed August 5th, 96 by Rob Neale for Reflection.From the opening strings of "VIP Riders Ghost", the new Metalheadz album promises to be special. The latest in a series of jungle label compilations (Storm From The East, Logical Progression) "Platinum Breaks" charts the progress of what is perhaps breakbeat music's most cutting edge labeel. Met 001 gets an excellent remix treatment ftrom Coventry's Doc Scott as well as being represented in it's original format. The labels' finest moments are also shown here, from the jazzy refrains of Hidden Agenda's "Flute Tune" to the spacey sounds of Photek & Source Direct. Many other leaders of the movement make an appearance with cuts from the Dillinja to the incredibly talented J Majik pulling together the 17 track journey through some of drum & Bass's finest moments.A highly recommended purchase for anyone who wants to get a snapshot of the jungle scene as it stands at the moment in addition to anyone who didn't catch the original releases on vinyl - unmissable.
That eerie sound in "The Nocturnal" from ~3:00 is incredible. Overall, best tune here. Perfect example of "tunnel sound" of 90's.
Anyone who genuinely wants to know about Jungle as an art form should start here. The thought of this album brings tears to the eyes.
One of my favourite LP's of all time! Tracks like In My Life, Made Up Sound, Spectrum, Down Under... Jungle mastery of the deeper kind!
This was and still is the best Jungle-into-Drum & Bass compilation i ever bought. Most of the tracks on it, were produced in 1994(!!!). The compilation as a whole is incredibly varied, showcasing the many sides of both genres. From Peshay's soothing track Psychosis to the utterly dark Unofficial Ghost by Doc Scott or fantastic Amen-track Down Under by Digital; nothing was half-heartedly done compiling these tracks. It is said that Metalheadz represented the more 'sophisticated' side of Jungle, and i have to agree on that. In fact, the label itself almost became a 'genre on it's own'. I know there is an entire young generation out there preferring the broken beats of the 90's. And if i wanted to recommend an essential classic compilation, it would definitely be this one; it's still 'future music'. Fun fact : J Majik, the youngest of the 'oldskool crew', was only 16 or 17 years old while producing the atmospheric masterpiece Your Sound.
Unlike lots of other DnB stuff, most of these tracks have not aged a bit. After almost 10 years most of them sound fresh and exciting. One of my favorite albums. I occasionally give it to friends to introduce them into DnB. Best tunes are from J Majik ("Your Sound" and "Final Approach"). Incredible drum programming. It seems that nobody is producing tunes like these nowadays.
Doc Scot's Unofficial Ghost is awesome! I kwow this track now for 5 years or something like that and I can keep listening it over and over. After two and a half min. those dark sounds start and the tune never gets boring. When I play it I always have to play it a second time cause it's so damn good. All ten songs of the first cd kick ass also. A real must have for junglists. You must also check out the second vol. of Platinum Breakz which is much darker but a killer too.
Totally agree! I've known this track since 1998 and keep listening to it over and over again. Awsome tune!
My first piece of vinyl and still one of my favourites. For me breakbeats never sounded better than here.. The sound of these tunes is very mature, with that special feeling attached. They have something a miss a lot in newer jungle/drum&bass records..
Goldie and jungle were hyped beyond belief in 1996. And this comp is an excellent testimony of that era, when Metalheadz was at its peak in terms of hype. Not to say it's not as good today, quality have ALLWAYS been in MTZ agenda, but before this comp was released release anticipations were so high : Metalheadz, this incredible label, is going to release its first comp, kill to get it, etc.... Anyway, no filler in sight with this one. Check especially Peshay's Nocturnal on disc 2, so dark, so good. I've seen on this site a version with an extra Goldie track on disc 2, never seen this one in shops...Gutted
One of the essential DnB-albums which mixes jazz influences and ambient things with tricky beats. Highlights are Photek and J Majik ("Final Approach"). If you're a beginner to DnB this album is a must.
Some nice d'n'b from right before it went all 2-steppy. Sort of dark, atmospheric pads, rough breaks and quality production. 1,2,3,5,6,9,10 on CD1 are great. CD 2 is kinda weak with only track 1 standing out (maybe the best on the whole compilation).
This is probably THE best collection of London D'n'B tracks to start with. Now already seeming old-skoolish, it still gives you a very good idea of where the roots of todays Drum and Bass lie. Not to forget about the classic tracks, e.g. 'Consciousness' by Photek.
