  • Cordabor

  • misery

Cutslo was another game changer, from a time when the game was constantly changing! This track works in three parts to amazing effect - the steady, rolling build-up, teases you deliciously and gets your head nodding. Then, that killer pre-drop belches out those ugly bass stabs. Finally, we're left with nowhere to run, as the tune completely explodes. The hoover gets going, the amens show no mercy, and all that's left is total dance floor devastation.I first heard this in late 97 as part of Doc Scott's set at the Oxford Zodiac, broadcast live on 1 in the Jungle. When this tune got going, I couldn't believe my ears. Here now, nearly 20(!!) years later, it still sounds like the future. Alien Girl - Another one that I first heard well over a year before it's actual release, courtesy of the great Grooverider. What can be said about this then? A total monster of a tune, the bass firmly in the red throughout - total speaker annihilation! Nowhere near as epic as the A-side but a worthy companion. And I think that little noise before the drop is sampled from the Simpsons - it's the sound of Otto's school bus coming to a stop. ????All in all yet another legendary part of the stacked Prototype discography. They don't make them like this anymore. Further listening - Lostdubs Vol 1 : Ed Rush, Optical and Fierce remix DJ Trace's Sonar. Murder!!
  • Pumpit
Ed Rush, Optical and Fierces " Cutslo" is a good tune, however I've heard at least two versions of it so I presume there has been a remix but I don't know for sure. Both versions of Cutslo are both good, the darker version is better if you understand what I mean and the other which I heard on Rider's Prototype Years album was good but not as good as the other. Alien Girl is just a pure killer in every form, heavy tune.
  • Ironfire
Both good but Cutslo (Lokuste Mix) is the banger here, feel those hairs stand up on your body!Ed Rush, Optical And Fierce..Rude Boys.
  • Dorizius
I remember hearing "Alien girl" for the first time, I was at a mates house and s Bailey @ AWOL tape was playing in the back ground. Mid conversation I heard the drop and it literally lifted me out my seat!!!
  • Anayaron
Ed Rush and Optical were the masters of this genre. No one has made hard-edged drum and bass as good as them.
  • Chi
classic tune,loved the original locust but this captured all of it in true ed rush/optical style,many good memories of being wide eyed to this on the dancefloor,alien girl still gets rinsed alot aswell,happy days,can't understand those who don't like it but each to there own,i'll never tire of this slice of techsteppin history,nasty tune,love it
Alien Girl.... Still play it to this day. Still sounds great. Its a giant of a tune and definitely an all time favourite. Remember when DNB labels used to be this good?
  • Fawrindhga
Used to be? Have you listened lately? maybe catch it on the rewind..
  • Onath
This is dance music weaponised. Utter classic. Sequels are never usually better, but like Terminator 2 to Terminator, the Cutslo mix is what The Locust was looking for. Masterpiece. Oh, and Alien Girl is a KILLER, goes without saying.
  • Jaiarton
Overrated average stuff. Talking about hardest techstep at those times, this is just a "joke" comparing to Current Value's cold-steel touch in his first long player "Frequency Hunt" which is phenomenal. Check it out.
  • in waiting
If you prefer Current Value's unorthodox, albeit bizarre, approach to drum and bass then fair enough. But there's no need to slate one of the biggest dnb releases of all time just because it's not your cup of tea. Non of those CV tunes will have had anywhere near the same reaction on any dance floor compared to either side of this release.
  • Gna
Do you even know what dnb is?
  • Akinohn
had a listen to Current Value, cheers for the heads up. For me it doesn't get anywhere near the energy of Cutslo, drums too disjointed
  • Steelraven
Before you'll write something next time, go and check out that german guy. That will be fair enough. For comparison.
  • Mardin
Any drum & bass head worth his or her salt knows without needing to stop and think for even one second that Alien Girl is one of the hardest bangers ever made in D&B. To call this a joke is insulting to the genre. The most respected DJs to ever touch 1210s have gleefully dropped this in their sets at some point and ruined dance floors the world over,
  • Awene
Still have my copy. Was my absolute favorite. Nothing at the time was harder than this. Listened to it over and over again on my walkman.
  • Balhala
To be honest, I bought this at the time because I was a label completist. It's pretty good and has stood the test of time, but I never really got that excited about it.
  • Gindian
your talking rubbish mate
  • Nidora
Fair enough, no hating here at all mate - you make a somewhat valid point - I’m 39 years old so I’m getting on a bit………This is one of those tracks that helped to define a whole sub-genre within DNB, and if I may say so it a purists track in every single way. I heard Fierce play it mid-set recently to devastating effect nearly 15 years after its release date! Let me tell you -110% of people including fossils like me were brockin out big time! It’s all about standing the test of time, Alien Girl has stood that test - and stands still strong amongst a large majority of the over produced dross that’s churned out on an almost daily basis in the scene circa 2014. I don’t give a shit which elitist beard stroking producer of the moment says its average! They need the Phil Source headphone treatment on this one for real. Peace Shane BTW Body Rock not even in this league!

With all due respect, I doubt he's kidding. I know some dnb-veterans who don't like Alien Girl at all. I dig No U Turn, old Virus, 1210, The Nine, Up All Night, Underfire and literally all classic labels and tunes, but never really understood the concept of Alien Girl (along with Body Rock). I know, my attitude is disappointing, I'm a disgrace to the dnb scene and so on, but that's the truth. Maybe if I were a "born-in-the-early-80s" dude who got hooked into drum and bass because of Alien Girl I would appreciate it much more, but at this period of my life, it's just a simple (yet fine) choon.I did not mean to offend anyone, I put my hands down, I know this release is legendary for a reason. Just to say something good about it (and don't make myself look like a hater), the alien squelching and the general atmosphere of Alien Girl brings me back some good memories, it reminds me of some nice memoirs, and, if speeded up, I like it. Oh, and the other side is pretty good.
  • Adorardana
Your kidding right ?
  • Lesesshe
Any 1 no the bpm of alien girl ?
  • mym Ђудęm ęгσ НuK
I've got 169,93 in Ableton so it has to be 170.
  • HappyLove
Both sides are 170. Mixmeister never fails ;)Cheers
  • Oghmaghma
around 179 bpm
  • Wire
  • Anarius
this is a timeless classic, the good part is that 10 years ago i sold it for £30 to go towards traveling funds and i just bought a new one for £6.50 what a result!!! this time it stays in the rack...:)
