The Professor below is absolutely correct as per usual regarding the vocal sample on Sit On The Bass which happens to originate from that absolutely mental, classic, criminally underrated acid house tune. Love that 1988 acid track. Brilliant!

Anyway, regarding this release. I'm pretty certain early copies, perhaps as test pressings, maybe acetates were circulating and being played from as early as 1990. Sit On The Bass is quite the buzzing techno classic. Some people unofficially identify it as the 'poppadom' tune. No Knicker-less (Nicholas) Parsons here I'm afraid.

Inside your mind is a more typical Ubik/Hi-Ryze minimal type of thing. But B2 is rather overlooked in my opinion. I rather like New Generation House. The "new generation - house" rap vocal sample is a bit repetitively irritating I must admit but I don't mind the spoken female 'do you ever fantasize?' sample taken either from Ben Mays - X-Rated/Rated-X or that horrid Raw Sex ‎- Suck It Deep track, or perhaps from a well known x rated movie. I like the musical style anyway, less traditonally bass n bleep and more of an analogue rolling energetic warehouse electro funky techno thing going on. It's a proper mover once it gets going. DJs used to pitch it up a touch back then (Carl Cox, Colin Dale, Top Buzz, Grooverider, Easygroove, Kev bird etc) so it can sit alongside the other records which were gathering pace with every changing season.

Sit On The Bass samples the vocal from this (which actually says "Sit On The Face" a very x-rated and naughty acid stormer !!!!)

The original of this tune is massive. Its one of those records i used to hear in Clubs back in the day and wonder what it was? Now i know!
The Jerome Hill remix is a good re work of the original and would sit in an old school mix as well as sounding fresh and contemporary in a Techno set. Excellent production and the record is mastered well so it has volume & stacks of Bass line !
If you Don't have any "Don't Records" this is a good place to start. Check out the Jabberwocky Ep .Track B1 Ready now " that also has that old school feel to it and reminds me in parts of "Altern-8"

The magic cross between hardcore and bleep, got this release also as a Uk blacklabel thingy with only TTo engraved.The A side "Sit On the Bass" is a bleepy bassy affair in the style of LFO-LFo, big clubhit in Belgium's Boccaccio in the day, and with his robovoiced "Sit On DA Bass" signature vocal still sounding awesome and not dated. The real treasure for me is the B-side track, "Inside your mind", sounding very Sheffield and early warpy at the same time, dark string laden atmospheres with a monster bass'n'bleep stoccato going on .... Essential !!!
