The video for Hypnotic St-8 was shot by Delta Video and featured footage from Altern 8's PA at Mythology.

Another one of my favorite rave classics from the 90's. Pick it up because it has a tendency to make you wanna move your booty. ;)

always thought this was the best track altern 8 put out. full on mask hysteria is a hell of an album but this track stands out for me.

Hypnptic St-8 sampled themselves on the track "Self Hypnosis" by Nexus 21, which was their own alter ego and first incarnation. Altern-8 had a habit of sampling other Network tracks - "Re-indulge" on the flip of "Activ-8" was another one, nicking the main piano line from Neil Howard's "Indulge".
