Quote By DJ Junk
"Created during 1993 when the ‘Dark Jungle’ genre was at it’s height, the dominant sound at raves was heavy breaks, deep throbbing bass lines and crazy electronic noises. This sound caught my imagination and I got right into creating works of madness. Using an Akai S950 sampler and an Atari computer running Cubase sequencer software I had polished my break beat looping and chopping skills and wanted to show them off so I let rip on this EP, add to that some dark noises sampled from early Techno tracks and Electronica albums like Isao Tomita and the result is some extremely weird and dark jungle which captures the rave sound of this time.
Two tracks are remixes of tracks released on earlier records, Junk 04 and an untitled track from the Junk 06 EP, ‘Junk 06 Remix’ is a remix with the amen brother breakbeat and was cut on an acetate (dubplate) by LTJ Bukem.
Monsters and Demons, this is a re-work of a 1989 Techno track ‘Virtual’ By Black Dog, this was always a favourite of mine and I wanted to do a breakbeat remix although the original track is a very early form of jungle in my opinion. This was cut on acetate (dubplate) by LTJ Bukem and Grooverider.
More Amen Brother is a journey into demented noises and chopped up breakbeats, could be too extreme for some listeners but that was the aim with this track, to make something right on the edge of the dark jungle genre and it’s something that I’m proud of now."

Quote From Flyer Doctor Cee
"From the mists of time of the rave scene comes an old white label dance classic by the Temple of Life - Spencer ee, Flying Doctor Cee, Robin ee and TMS1.
The ‘Look at Their Eyes it’s Ecstasy’ sample are the dulcet tones of Robin ee, and an original performance not a sample. By 1989 we were all locked into Centre Force FM 88.3 along with a host of other illegal pirate stations, including our own Dance Zone FM. Our first live gig as Temple of Life live gig was at Pitsea Leisure Centre in Essex called Time Zone. Around 1990 the next gig Time Zone 2 was at the Civic Hall, Grays in Essex with a 10K rig.
The tracks on the EDP EP were recorded in the loft space studio via an Atari ST, Casio FZ1, Electronic Dream Plant Synth, Roland 202, TB303, and some beat loops and TMS1 on the Technics 1210's.
This was our one and only release on vinyl, now repressed and remastered. We lived and breathed this scene…..aah the halcyon daze of dancing through the whole night to sunrise and beyond."

The Overdub E.P. was first conceived by DJ's Mark Summers & Ben Howard in Sudbury, Suffolk, in 1993. Hardcore and Jungle was huge in the UK at that time, with Summers & Howard playing the genres out at their 'Paranoia' and 'The Ark' nights, at venues in Su[/url]dbury and Southend.
Over the course of 2 weeks they met at Mark's home basement studio, digging through their vinyl crates to find all kinds of inspirational material for their tracks. Both DJ's had eclectic tastes in music, and so the basis for 'The Overdub E.P.' was born; with some interesting touches added along the way. Mark had sampled an entire Korg M1 Piano inside a Chelmsford music store onto DAT, and later used that same piano to create the huge hook he played on 'Takes 1'. While Ben had sourced an obscure Reggae break used as the basis for 'Skunk Massive'. Later when DJing at 'The Ark',with Ben Howard, the final master mixes of 'The Overdub E.P.' were heard by DJ Rush Puppy - a nephew of one of the owners of Contagious Records, based in Upminster, Essex. The label had become prominent in 1992 for releasing some of the finest Hardcore/Jungle, and within a few days of hearing 'The Overdub E.P.' they were all set to make it their 11th release.
However, the legendary story of what we now know as the fate of this record began to unfold.... Shortly after the first vinyl run had been pressed, Contagious Records went bankrupt; meaning the vinyl pressing plant could not be paid - which lead to the plant destroying the complete run, minus a very limited amount of copies that were sneaked out prior to the destruction of all the remaining pressings. This extremely rare E.P. has since become one of the most highly treasured vinyl items, currently fetching up to £350 per copy on Discogs.com.
Now this obscure gem from the early 90's birth of Drum 'N Bass has been remastered in 2017 by Bob Macc at Subvert Central Mastering for SCORCCIO (from the original master DAT owned by Mark Summers and Ben Howard), finally released 24 years on from its legendary inception and greatly renowned status - as one of the best Piano Hardcore tracks ever written.
