Strings on we are the future from Michael Nyman's 'Bisocosis Populi' from the 'A Zed And Two Noughts' soundtrack - funny how these things leap out at you when you watch the sampled movie!

Simon Reynolds, in his seminal history of rave and hardcore "Energy Flash", connects the melancholic "i'm drowning in her" sample (MDMA has always been personified as a woman in referential samples) together with the next vocal sample in the song --- "how?", from the Mr. Kirk's Nightmare speech --- as a lament of a scene gone bad, of serotonin receptors no longer functioning, of MDMA abuse turning empathogens into mere speed... a "how did we get here" of communal drug abuse. And that makes it all the more beautiful and touching.

He doesn't mention the b-side, but in the context the a-side provides, the b-side's sample of "we are the future" becomes even more plaintive. Rave culture always thought it was the future --- but here, the exuberance in that thought is gone. The track title is spoken solemnly with no zest. No rush. Dissociated, not connected.

A prelude to the death of the rave dream. I love this record even though it breaks my heart.

Calling this a "mispress" detracts from the additional track/outro you get here on the flip which is beautiful - as mentioned below, this is the one!

Would assume this reprise is just part of the track. Unlikely that this is a mispress. Can we have someone verify?

If this record is indeed a mispress it's a beauty of one. The drumless mix of We Are The Future just sounds like an outro to me, it starts with perfect timing at the end of the track and is just a ambient version. It works really well and I couldn't imagine the track without it. I certainly wouldn't have considered it to have been a mistake but I assume someone has some inside info that I don't. This is the one to get if you can find it!

Dark class... A heavy tune which is probably more popular now than when it was released in 1993. Foul Play are behind this I believe - slick sounding & sample heavy. Nasty big beats & bass, chilled keys + chords plus the Robert Owens sample all combine to make one of the best jungle tunes about. This was battered by all the top DJ's at the time - no sh*t, it was immense. DJ Randall, Fabio, Hype all went in on this. Yes, it's very expensive to get the original but an impressive addition to any collection, especially if you play an old skool set.
