Obsessed II (Pictures of Silence) is one of the best tunes of its genre, very complex and well thought out; whereas Trip II The Moon (Kaleidoskopiklimax) embodies all that was great about the trio, fast, driving beats and plenty of euphoria!

Everything about the Trip II the moon series (1-3) Ouse's class! And for me embodied all that was great about Hardcore/Breakbeat... High energy, GREAT Beats and Samples, even measures of light/dark - not that there are any real dark moments, more about the mood and emotion generated in the tune's, and it is spot on! Euphoric lose your self parts balanced with mellower "time out" phases. Even the piano retain's a certain melancholic edge to it, and it was hands in the air stuff at times! But even now to my ears not over the top cheese,like so much of the time. And this is down to Acen's exceptional production and good ear not forgetting great imagination... from sourcing samples to composition/arrangement of the tracks, absolutely top draw!!

Great record. High school memories... LOL. I got rid of most of my "jungle" records about 15 years ago, but I still have this one.

I accidentally heard "Kaleidascopiklimax" very recently in an old mix i did, And i dare i say it, That is one of the only records in my collection that nearly reduces me to tears when i hear it.
Not only that, But the flip side "obsessed 2" is pretty much more of the same, Its all very emotional, but its that very thing that makes this record what it is.

Powerful stuff, not many oldskool breakbeat records can do that to a grown man.

Mr. Acen Razvi, the man behind the amazing “Trip To The Moon” series and considered part of Production House amazing talents, surprised everyone with the B Siede of his (Kaleidoscopiklimax) single, Honoring the Junglists greatest tradition of Breakbeat samples: “Obsessed II (Pictures Of Silence)” got no less than the drummers of “Funky Mule”, a classic by Ike Turner's Kings Of Rhythm of 1969. On the A Side you can hear "We're On The Move", a sample of a timeless classic by Sinnamon (by the way one of the greatest male vocals of the dance music history); Eric B & Rakim are also remembered with a fragment of "Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em".

I heard Kaleidoscopiklimax in late '92 or early '93 when, of all people, Pete Tong played it on Radio 1. No exaggeration to say it changed my life; got me into breakbeat hardcore, and hence specialist record shops instead of the High St, and hence DJing and a love of all forms of electronic music.

More than that, 14 years later this remains one of my all-time favourite records. The production is just so spot on, it bursts with energy, and it's a proper trip worthy of the name. The b-side (Obsessed II) is also stunning, evoking a more melancholy mood. I never rated the rest of the series so highly, I think this is Acen's peak, but what a peak!
