Liner Notes for Tape 1:
"All tracks taken from the early years crates of Reinforced
The inceptive era when we carved out an original sound
borrowing for almost every form of music.
Hear the early sampling technics, sometimes raw layers of
synths and drum breaks crushed together to form that urban wall of sound.
909 kicks, stabs, breaks, dub basslines and random vocals.
This was the beginning, the early learning curve that formed Reinforced.
For the Seed To Grow It Should Be Planted In Firm Foundation
The Strongest Plants Must Have That Foundation
REINFORCED"

Liner Notes for Tape 2:
"All tracks taken from the mighty Enforcers series.
THe Enforcers series were not only cutting edge and experimental
but also a tactical way of getting both DJ and ravers to acknowledge the
Reinforced philosophy of intertwining art with music and dance culture.
In the years to follow, they became one of the most sort after collections in
the Drum & Bass scene not only for the great music but also their visual presence.
Thank you to the many producers and DJ's that made ENFORCERS special."

Liner Notes for Tape 3:
"All tracks taken from the crates of Reinforced.
DJ Storm & Kemistry (rest in peace) have always been held in high esteem
at Reinforced, both admired for their skills and dedication to the music.
Digging deep into the crates, Storm's mix is the perfect cross section of
what makes Reinforced so unique. From Hardcore through Jungle to Drum n Bass.
Call it wat you want we just call it
REINFORCED"

"DJ Stretch is no stranger to ther Reinforced fan, Stretch came to Reinforced
when he was still at school, a very abitious young DJ ready to hold it down
for the force. His dedication and skills won over the crew and ever since
Stretch has rerpresented with pride (and nuff smiles).
Stretch took on the task of selecting from Marc & Dego's Tom & Jerry
crates. This Is Big. Big Tingz a Gwarn trust me for real....."
