Straight in with the cream of DnB label compilations imo.
Up there with Platinum Breakz, Prototype Years, Armageddon, Rare Grooves, Horsementality, DAT:Music, Mosaic, Illustrations etc.
Wide range of tempos on there too from the low 160s to 17-something. Stll not worked out what my favourites are. Wide range of sounds from halftime stuff to full on amens to drumfunky numbers. Lots of atmosphere, lots of weight, lots and lots of drums.
Why draw that comparison before it's even released though? Prototype Years was pioneering, it came out and defined that sound at a time when it hadn't been explored fully. While I'm sure the quality on this Rupture LP will be very high, it's hard to see how it's going to have that same transcendent feel when the themes and structures of the tunes will be based on things like the Prototype Years...
