    yeah there is that.

    Not so sure, I think its more of a combination of a personal, slightly idiosyncratic take on hardcore combined with perhaps a bit of insecurity about that approach, with tentative steps into jungle, jungle techno & some other sounds. Not crossover per se, but speculative experiments into a wider variety of styles.

    That was Tricky and No U Turn only anyways.

    but craner is probably right to say it was a foreboding, dark intimations of what was to come,
    not just a reflection of what was happening at the time.

    and actually, sorry on reflection, thridform has already touched on this in reference to darkness
    in hardcore
