referencing Can't Hold Back / Movin' On Strong, 12", SMR 12001
Absolutely essential piece of uplifting oldskool jungle from Asend here. 'Can't Hold Back' is an extremely energetic track with hard-stepping, breakbeats complimented by soulful vocals (albeit sped up) borrowed from Carlton's 'Do You Dream' and a snippet of Big Daddy Kane giving the track's title. The trademark Back 2 Basics formula of ruff but smooth elements makes this an absolutely essential purchase in my eyes.

On a side note, I've been pondering over what the hell the Carlton vocal sample says, as both the Asend sample and the original source material are quite difficult to make out. However after a lot of searching for the lyrics, the vocals apparently are 'Maybe we could leave the crowd. Bodies talk, without sound'.
