Lionrock – Packet of Peace (12″ Mix) [1993]

Absolutely pivotal release from Lionrock, a great early Progressive House classic that was absolutely rinsed by just about everyone. For good reason too, its got those great conscious lyrics mixed up tightly into a driving kick drum and relentless bassline. Lots of strings sprinkles over the top with that great acid riff chopping in and out of the track give Packet of Peace all the layers you could ever want. Simple and farkin’ amazing.

“I’ll leave my mind beneath the mat, so you can let yourself in. If you can stand the mess then stay but im not entertaining”

From Discogs
Used to spin the original version of this track in 1993, a beautiful progressive/house track with a nice bassline, a prophetic lyric riding over the top and a touch of acid throughout. Then 1994 came and the Chemical Brothers (then known as the “Dust Brothers”) dropped this monster! Sharing almost nothing with the original, this track features a tough, driving breakbeat, some gritty samples and an luscious vocal sample over a massive breakdown. Straight sick!!!!
