Classic mainstream Altern8. By this stage they had worked out the formula of stabby synths, female vocals over a simple breakbeat overlaid with a hefty dose of pianos and sampled riffs of other tracks popular in clubland at the time. This one certainly came together beautifully. The "sample" of Derrick May's Stings of Life lasts at least a minute each time it drops and dominates the track. Now that's how to sample!

Hardcore! You know the score. The raging, raving beats, with the "Strings" sample make this a dancefloor delerium certainty. Watch yer bassbins, I'm tellin' ya!
