Does there still exist a Dark brown coloured pressing or was that not true? I recall that this was mentioned in the comments above in the release info but it seems to have been removed? I think there even were pictures of it here. Or am I confused? ;)

my record contains 3 versions of "Way back" and the shuffle mix... I'm confused... Mispress? (looked again now, both sides are identical... so clearly a mispress)

Way Back is 100% my favourite from this release! Excellent stuff.

This is such a good record.
Have to admit it was all about Groove La chord but now i'm not sure, Wayback is equally excellent. Its one where you wonder why they didnt just milk 2 releases from it?
I dont think there is a techno record out there with more energy, you just cant sit still with this playing regardless of how many times you've heard it.

Had a chance to see Brikha play at the Detroit Electronic Music Fest this year (2011), and expectedly, when Groove La'Chord dropped, the crowd absolutely lost it. This track gets quite a bit of airplay on the radio in Detroit, but not from where you would typically expect to hear it. It has been a staple for years in the sets of local booty music djs, and was actually where I had heard it first being dropped. It wasn't until many years after its initial release did I discover who had actually produced it, and that it wasn't even a 'booty' track. But it does go a long way to show the versatility of this song and the influence it had outside of the circle house and techno djs.

Simply listen....classic...genius at work.

'groove la chord' has always sounded like Maurizio taking some particularly energetic tablets and letting rip on the dancefloor, a timeless classic....if you only buy one aril tune, this would be the one, closely followed by 'departures in time'.......both the very purest of deeeepness!
