I had a friend once tell me that the dial tone and connection sound triggers some a Manchurian candidate effect.....I'm afraid 4hero was more than aware of that when creating the emotional hangover of a section in IN THE SHADOW (Sundown mix)

The Element (High Noon) it's one of the most insane song i've ever heard, True classic, ahead of 1993, ahead of 2016.

Still sounds like something from another planet, a true visionary piece of music.

journey from the light is simply a work of art. Still sounds as daring and radical today as it ever did. I wonder how 4 hero themselves look back on this tune, as while i'm sure that they've become more musically accomplished over the years, their subsequent output has been far less interesting in terms of atmosphere and emotion. This is peak era jungle!

Vocals on "Journey from the Light" appear to be a sample of First Choice's "Love and Happiness" 1973.

4 hero's master piece.This is by far there best production.The whole ep is focused towards the darker side of rave music.Its no coincidence as reinforced records pioneered the sound 'in tandem with other artists' Like rufige cru,doc scott to name but a few. This ep is genre bending. Make no mistake equal to that of metalheads "Terminator" Another genre creating tune. Using time stretched beats and Joey "Mentasm" Beltram style riffs. I am refering to track 4 "In The Shadow" All the tracks our supreme but i would like to give reference to the above as one of the most blissed out break-beat techno tunes i have ever heard it encapsulates the whole ecstasy experience the funky breakbeat sits perfect along the mutated riff,mid track piano vamps stab at you blissing you out before taking you back to the dark side. Its the closest i've ever heard to an aural simulation of a shiver down the spine. In the shadow remains up there with the very best for me its a personal favorite equal to foul plays "Open your mind" remix.

4 Hero's masterpiece "Journey From The Light" figures among those Hardcore-Jungle classics you cannot miss the chance to listen; it says that the release was meant to stay as an example of how the breakbeats hardcore scene should run out from the commercial highlights and get back into the underground atmosphere.
You can easily notice it through the tune's ensemble, from those future electronic synths, phaser effects, vocal and beat stretches by Marc Clair & Dego, darker moods, melted with samples from the hottest Funk-Soul beats by the drummer Mack Johnson from the classic "Funky Mule" (1969) by Ike Turner's Kings Of Rhythm, and also Belita Woods lead vocal sample "Some people think it's in the sky!" from the Soul-Disco classic "Journey To The Light" by Brainstorm, 1978.
