Goldie's third part of his drum'n'bass compilation series for London Records accompanied a resurgence of activity at his Metalheadz imprint within the early months of 2001. Label stalwarts Digital, Photek, Doc Scott, and Source Direct all stepped to the challenge, with each offering their own twist on the clanging percussives and menacing atmospherics which defined the early output of the label. Later signings John B and Sci-Clone brought some respite from the darkness with "Diversify" and the long awaited original mix of "Everywhere I Go," before the ever-diverse Hidden Agenda threw some Zest-flavored funk into the pot courtesy of "This Life."
