    Two seriously dope rollers here with some nice twisted individual style beats and gritty basslines.

    Side A has a very minimal intro with a nice beat but standard atmospherics but drops into a beautiful mix of hoovers, fucked up chords and sub bass, while side B has a nice oldskool organ stab intro with a very dirty chunky style. Both are well worth a play

    Nah, Zen and Twisted are two different people.

    The Reformed EP is pretty heavy. There is a real nice Twisted tune on there to acompany Darkside by Hazard.

    Formation seem to have had the quality control sorted out in 2002. Some real smashers out of that camp this yeah. 2003 looking good too so far.....

    Zen definately ain't twisted individual.

    He's the guy who twisted is talking to in the break of bandwagon blues, the one who says proper proper proper

    His tunes have exactly the same production, the same sound and they come out on exactly the same labels. Sounds fishy
