To call this track 'gabber' is an insult ! This was never 'gabber' in a million years ! The whole PCP catalogue is an instruction manual in psychedelic hardcore techno, far to many brain cells involved to be 'gabber'. Only the ill-informed, Johnny-come-lately's of the techno scene, would be so crass to refer to this as 'gabber' p.s. In case you don't know, a 'gabber' was originally a Dutch football hooligan, otherwise known as a 'ned' in Britain. This tells you all you need to know about 'gabber'.

This vinyl is gabber. I don't need anything else, besides maybe a dose of DOA or Temper Tantrum every now and again. This scene is so incredibly saturated by cliche bullshit nowadays, it makes me question, why listen to anything else but the originals? How could anyone think they know what hardcore stands for if they've never heard of Planet Core Productions? I'm stuck in the past and I wouldn't have it any other way. 10/10, two thumbs right up your ass.

I could finally own a copy of this record. This vinyl is probably one of those records that made history by itself. 1990 was the year of release, altough "We Have Arrived" was made in the end of 1989. For most people in the Hardcore scene, this is considered to be the first Hardcore track ever, and altough this is kinda hard to proove, well... let's say it became more or less a time-mark. Marc Acardipane showed his real talent in this white vinyl, and literally gave birth to a style fused of techno and industrial influences, which nowadays has spread into so many directions and subgenres. But all those who care about the history of what their hear will come down to PCP, and to this one... "We Have Arrived" was an very appropriated title as you can see. Both tracks are completly out of this world and time. Almost 2006 and still as futuristic as ever. See you beyond 2017, if you ask me. :)

In retrospect Marc Acardipane was one of the best producers of the early 90's. His sound always belonged to him and him only. He layered his sounds with darkness. The beats were relentless.
They held back for nobody, consuming everything in its path. We built our scene in the Brooklyn Undergound from tracks like this. Music made for large spaces. It was E.P's like this one that
made perfect sense in an old warehouse where people and sound would meet and these warehouses sometimes were vacant for decades...Tracks like this did not sit well with most people that were playing House music. Way to abrasive, loud and gritty. But the more people that heard these records in that setting knew that these records were made for just that. These became timeless tracks. To think that Acardipane was thinking about recording this 15 years ago is sheer proof that the man was thinking for the future. Because if it sounds like this in 2005, I am sure it will sound this way in 2017. Marc Acardipaine, Yes we will see you in 2017, For sure.

This record effectively wipes your head clean. you can feel the hairs in your ear beg for mercy. It scares children at 50 paces, causes the nervous to mess themselves. Anything that industrial attempted to do as far as scaring the pants off its crowd. This record actually could do and then leave you screaming for more.
The flip is about motion sickness complete with a run out loop.
