"When I started Critical, Metalheadz was definitely one of my main inspirations," offers Kasra, by way of an explanation of his motivations for initially suggesting this feature. "It's a label that for me encapsulated everything a great label should be: innovative, diverse and with a sound you could recognise instantly. It remains to this day a benchmark of quality.
"Ahead of our back to back set in Room Two on 10th October, I asked Paul to pick his 5 favourite Critical tracks," he says, genuinely gripped and interested in the outcome of Jubei's choices; "and I picked my favourite 5 'Headz tunes, something which was almost an impossible task... my list could have been 25 tunes strong!"
