    What does people think of it? Got it off DNBA Digital and didn't think much of it. Don't mind Paper Cuts VIP, Bladerunner's 'Mercenary Dub' and Serum's 'Badboy' are pretty sick though. 'Step in the gutter' is heavy though I gotta admit.

    I didn't think that justified the release though, anyone else's opinions? It seems like Vapour is recycling a bit too, some of the tunes sound too similar. As much as I rate Vapour's production, I aint feeling these.

    Worth the money imo.
    HLZ - clampdown is one of my tunes of 09.
    The only tune that grates me slightly is step in the gutter. Not feeling that 100%.
    But everything else on the vinyl release is spot on.
    Romper stomper is just eugh!!!! in a skankingly good way.

    I bought Serum - Badboy as a separate download. Didn't bother with anything else. Some good tunes though.

    Initially really liked it but bored of most of them now, the Top Cat LP is 100 times better. Sorry Vapour.

    was going to buy it, but had a listen through and too many sounded the same, especially Vapours tracks

    so I only bought Romper Stomper, Cut Paper, Badboy and To the Massive.

    big up for the constructive feedback guys - nice to know your thoughts on big projects like this as i do pay attention to what people are saying about our releases (step in the gutter was only on the lp because so many people messaged me on here asking if it was coming out) i personally would have liked some more artists on the album but we missed out on a few tracks i wanted to sign and other tracks just wernt ready in time saying that though im still very happy with the lp and the sales are doing alot better than i had thought they would so all good - big up to everyone who has been buying it so far wheter its the whole lp or single tracks

    next year will see a whole lot of new material i am just about to sign our first artist exclusively to the label for a lp deal (more info to come very soon about that)

    i have also spent the last 6 months making a new sample collection from scratch and have started working on my lp which is due in the middle of 2010 expect at least 20 tracks spread over vinyl , cd , digital download and free download. i have some big things lined up for this including some guest vocalists and some diffrent vibes

    the next release is due march / april next year (having a small break from releases fro a couple of months so i can get in the studio instead of spending my days promotiing releases lol) and will feature HLZ (clash dub) and a track from our new signing - this could turn into a ep but maybe a single 12"


    dont forget to sign up to the website - www.36hertz.com there will be some more free goodies going up in the next week or 2

    respect

    Fucking love it! Like pretty much the entire album: Natty Rocker, Clampdwon, Transmissions, MErcenary Dub, One INch punch, Romper Stomper, all of em are tunes for me. Not really feelin' Cut Paper or Step IN the Gutter

    I absolutely love the intro for Natty Rocker.
    Clampdown destroys lives in the best way.
    Cut Paper is just really catchy and has massive amounts of bass--the glitchy intro just makes it that much better.
    Mercenary Dub, Romper Stomper, and Transmissions are fat.

    Pretty much agree there. Even though some of the tracks might sound similar they are fun to mix :wave:

    Glad to see a response from Vapour. Looking forward to the 2010 business for sure:D

    HLZ, mmmm Yessss

    dood natty rocker is underrated! that tune is fat as hell!

    i am really diggin this lp right now. this lp did a good job of bringing some of that old school feeling into the new jungle sound. big ups to the 36 hertz camp you guys are pushing the boundaries! i cant wait to see what HLZ cranks out in 2010. i feel a good year for him
