CRAZE - Dope!!
Simon Bassline Smith - B-Line!! The Upbeats - Jigsaw is a tune!! TC - Vey Good!
After all these years, having had such a close friendship and association, the one thing they were yet to do was actually make it into the studio together! It was time for that to be rectified. The first results emerged on the CIA 20 Album, and now they present the rest of the story so far. Four tracks, two concurrent releases and an uncompromising selection of music that throws all their styles into one red hot melting pot.
Shimon - Yes yes thats whats been missing 10/10 Marky - Absolutely KILLER!!!!
Krust - Tearing !!

Volume 1 opens with the impossibly infectious dubbed-out bassline of ‘Rumble’ soaked in ethereal keys and cavernous fx for a superlative hypnotic groove that crosses all boundaries. ‘Overlord’ takes rolling breakbeat funk into overdrive, building towards a crescendo of swirling riffs and tripped-out echoes.
‘Jigsaw’ kicks off Volume 2 with a homage to classics past. Mix in some ‘Remote Control’, sprinkle in some ‘Champion Sound’ then add in a dose of ‘Squash’ and the result is an unashamed guaranteed floorfiller that could only emerge from this meeting of minds. To round it all off, things get deep and dirty with the crunchy breaks, funky thumping tones and soaring vocal hooks of ‘Fall Down’.
