Hi! Does anybody know which Playing With Knives version Richard "Humpty" Vission used on his CD Mix Drop That Beat? I've heard almost all versions except that one which I had a chance to purchase back 1995 and left it behind. Can't remember the label!

Absolute stone cold rave classic. A tune that still sounds superb day - killer piano riff, massive breaks and those synth lines combined with a great uplifting vocal and voila a timeless classic. Danced to it at the Hacienda back in the day and still dance to it today, albiet slightly more slowly and less under the influence!

Hi Ian - Quite close with what you are saying but not exactly right. The original demo was more techno based than the finished Quadrant Mix. Dean had recently gone to the Quad for the first time with myself and Rob Bairstow [who became their dancer] also at the Quad that night were a few of our other friends - a girl called Claire Wagg being one of them. It was her who had encouraged us all to go. The place was crazy. I went with Dean to speak to the Dj's and introduce him to them. We initially spoke to James Barton who then introduced us to John Kelly. John flipped out when he met Dean because at the time xstatic and bizarre's theme were both massive tune for him in the Quad. He dropped them later and the place went off - being on the dancefloor when this hapened was a big moment for Dean. When the demo was initially written Dean played it to me and Claire [she also went on to be a dancer with Bizarre Inc with Rob] we both thought it good but was missing that massive magic moment like so many othe anthems in the Quad had - mainly piano riffs. We nagged and mithered him to put piano's in. When Dead and Andy went into the studio inbetween Christmas and NY Eve 1990 they did put the piano staby rif in as well as more of the samples. When I got home from from the Quad on NY day I rang Dean and he played it down the phone to me - I was absolutely blown away it was a complete game changer of a record. They got a handful of test pressings back late Jan 1991 - Dean & Andy had one each they gave one to me [for which I am eternally grateful] the first DJ who got one was going to be John Kelly because of that first visit to the Quad but he wasn't in the club that night so they gave the one copy they took to Mike Knowler. I think the only other two dj's who got TP's were Sasha and Parky

The Climax & Love 91 mixes are nearly unrecognisable as versions of the Quadrant mix.

The first 3 beats of "Playing With Knives" are missing in this release which makes hard to mix into the next track."Playing With Knives" in STORM 25 plays ok."Plutonic" is quite enough for everyone to have this on his record library.

The demo version of this tune was created at Andy Meecham's house. After sending a demo tape to Vinyl Solution, J. Saul Kane & Alain from the label invited them down to sign. Out Of The Blue studios was chosen to make the proper version of the tune due to them being big fans of 808 State who also recorded there. Carl Turner from Bizarre Inc gave the track it's name.
The first DJ to be given a copy was Graeme Park who first dropped it at Quadrant Park in Liverpool (hence why the main version is called the Quadrant mix.
