"Hardcore - you know the score"

"Top one" sample from MC Crazy Clair by arrangement with Andrew Rushton Management. Nice one!

internet info.

Whose voice says “Top one, nice one, get sorted?”

Top one, nice one, get sorted was by the record label boss’s daughter who was three years old at the time, the label dubbed her Mc Crazy Claire and we even had magazines asking if she was recording more material.

The video for this was filmed by Status Video Productions and features footage of Altern 8's legendary impromptu gig outside Shelley's in Stoke-On-Trent. The rest of the video was shot at Trentham Gardens as well as robot impersonator, Roboman. The Man Parris sample was taken from Derrick May's set for Amnesia House at the Sky Blue Connexion in Coventry in 1990. Pete Bromley lent Mark Archer the copy of 2 Hype for him to sample. The name of the mix of Re-Indulge is taken from the Freetown club in Stoke that mainly played house & garage and was a solo production of Mark Archer recorded in his home studio.

Main chord that appears on the first part of the track seems to belong to "Music for a found harmonium", by the Penguin Café Orchestra.

The whole sample "get mental in the house" was taken from MC Man Parris, whilst MC'ing for Derrick May at Amnesia House.
