The record that made me want to make records! Took hardcore to a new level of intricacy & production & still sounds like the future!

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.

im looking for the origin of the vocal gymnastics sample that sits in 2.10 ->onward in journey from light. i've managed to track nearly all samples in the song.. but not that one.. anyone know?

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!

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.
