Krust – 'True Stories'
I'm not sure when I first heard this track but I was a massive fan of DJ Krust at the time. They had a regular night at The End, a club near Tottenham Court Road, which was amazing. Whether I first heard it there or on vinyl instead I can't remember. I think there's something about the space and emotion in it that's really unusual, and for me that hasn't really been bettered in electronic music since.

'Future Unknown' or 'Soul In Motion' could have easily gone in this slot as well but there is something about the scale of this tune that just about beats them. DJ Krust was a huge influence on me and this tune represents the peak in the evolutionary journey of jungle. Uniquely heartbreaking and bad as fuck at the same time.
