Paul Reset’s notes:

In my opinion, the finest drum n bass producer in the states – Gridlok graced us with these two top quality chunks of techy dnb way back in 2002, long before his affiliations with the mighty Violence Recordings, Renegade Hardware and his own current imprint Project 51.

I think they sound as fresh today as they did back then. Especially “Struggle” – it’s always been one of my personal Nerve favourites – chunky but funky. Gridlok would later appear with a breaks 12″ on Nerve Breaks 007.

More info on Gridlok can be found on his Myspace page.

Once again – artwork duties were carried out by the guys at Yuva.TV.

(oh and again I’ve nicked the artwork from Rolldabeats temporarily until I get my own versions online)

Pyro’s Notes:

I have huge amounts of professional and technical respect for Gridlok. In my opinion he’s one of the most technically competent in drum’n’bass today and still as relevant as ever. I was extremely pleased when he agreed to let us release these 2 tunes.  “Struggle” even features his griddyness on guitar. One of my favourite Nerve releases.
