Always loved Searchin' but after hearing the original I'm a quite surprised by the blatant rip off!...
A Guy Called Gerald's -Blow Your House Down...
The bassline has been right royally ripped off!
I still love both versions so I will let 33 1/3 Queen off da hook ..
But back to this ep..
Turn This Mutha Out is the other tune that used to rock the party!
But do not ignore the others...
Breakin' Wind has an infectious chime all the way through it that I always loved!
Great clean beats!
Chunky original old school Hard House (not the other Hard House!!!)
Both are really great to mix other records into!

another one Nu Groove should reissue ASAP

'Turn this mutha out' features the same synth sound and almost the same melody as
released 1 year earlier in France (Belgian producer). Strangely usually the Belgians quoted the Americans in the New Beat movement!?! :)

'Searchin' carried some serious weight when it rocked the underground clubs & pirate stations like Centre Force/Fantasy back in London 1990. There is a sequence towards the end where the bottom freq is cut completely over 4 bars before dropping back in to create pure havoc and devastation in the place - Just a completely dope recording with Nu Groove on legendary form.

"Searchin'" is a top track, But the one for me is "Breakin Wind". Allways put's a smile on my dial. Was a big floor filler back in Melbourne 1991. Something that is so simple, but so current in sound. Sounds like DAFT PUNK style disco loop. For me, this ways the only reason for getting this 12". If you love NU-GROOVE, then this is a must have......

"Searchin'" is a monster track, a definite classic, but what appears to be widely overlooked is the fact that the baseline was sampled directly from A Guy Called Gerald - "Blow Your House Down", one of the extra tracks on the original EP release of "Voodoo Ray" (discogs release ID 64961).
