Hailing from Reading, DJ Narrows has been delivering missives from the dark side of garage (so we don't have to) for over a decade now. It sounds like a scary place but doesn't half sound good on a messy dancefloor at 3am. "Sound Murderer" kicks things off sounding like a giant iron robot destroying cities beneath its feet to the strains of poundingly hard 4x4, "Dangerous Decibels" is from the funkier slice of wobble, "Hungus" is a hypnotic big room banger and things wrap up on a deeper note with "Higher Consciousness".
Reading's DJ Narrows lays claim to changing the UKG scene forever upon his arrival in 2001. Judging by the lion's roar of a bassline in this dark, techy, garage banger we're not going to argue! The toughness doesn't let up either - "Da Lion" (there's a theme here) adds some ravey flavours with a bit of wobble for good measure. "Prototype" is more melodic with slight 2-step influences but things heat up again, ending with the mechanical and relentless "The Promised land".
