AllMusic Review by

AK1200's second mix album of the year, Prepare for Assault, benefits from the American drum'n'bass maestro's increasing depth and range, revealed by the number (and variety) of dubplates he has access to. AK1200 drops tracks from D'Cruze ("Carbonite"), Danny Breaks (an AK1200 remix of "Pornstar Style VIP"), Majistrate ("Return"), and Special K ("Human Soul"), among others. It's refreshing to see an American jungle DJ moving away from Britain's increasingly ancient tech-step scene (circa 1996) to embrace a mix that looks back to the glory days of hardcore as well as breakbeat funk.
