Personnel[edit]

Alternate versions and controversy[edit]

Jason Novak, credited as DJ Acucrack, was responsible for the original production of Oxidizer, but according to Novak, his finished tracks were "remixed" by other producers at Louche's behest, changing the album significantly in terms of the album's sound, 'sutures' and track order by the time of its official release.[2] Novak notes that the original version of the album "reflected the proper spirit of Chemlab", and that he did not receive proper credit on the official release, despite being responsible for the majority of the music.[3]

The original version of the Oxidizer album is now available directly from the Crack Nation website as a paid digital download.
