In the early 2000s, John Rolodex was the leading export in Canadian drum and bass. "Sick & Twisted" epitomizes the impact his music had around the world at that time. This track was supported by icons like Goldie and Dillinja. Bailey claimed to play it in every set for a YEAR straight. This lost Metalheadz dub has been sought-after since its 2004 'test mixdown'. To this day, emails requesting its release are received on the regular.

The 2006 Munich edit was made on a laptop at a kitchen table in Munich on September 30th, 2006 and played at a single show that same night. This version has never been heard anywhere else.

After all these years, and in the context of these unprecedented times, both versions of the tune are being released for a limited time. Please donate if you are able.
