For all that Name Of The DJ is the famous track on here, Daniça might be the one that was played more in the UK at the time. Or at least, based on the tapes that I used to listen to anyway...

What's cool too, as a UK hardcore fan, is that it's almost entirely based on a UK breakbeat track: 6Six6 by Luna C. The bassline, the "where are we going? use your imagination!" sample...but used so differently in Daniça: drawn out longer, and as a lead into a filtered gabber kick workout. Chosen Few was far from the only Dutch producer to sample English tracks a lot - but this is a perfect example of how he managed to do it with a bit more class than some others! (DJ Paul...)

Name of the DJ is the turning point in hardcore history. It is a serious track yet straddles the line of happy. It gave birth to the term "party core" in L.A. as a rift formed between the Holland (slower) and Industrial (speed) core. Delta 9 and Tron (Chicago) played this track during the rise of their careers as it was sure to get everyone moving. I met Francois in L.A. in 2002 and he is absolutely correct about it being the best Mokum track ever. In fact many would agree it was the best track to come out of Europe (or the rest of the world)

One of the better Mokum releases for sure. Not too commercial and ravey, and not so industrial it's unlistenable. Love Me Bad is actually a bit less imaginative than the other tracks, the formula of beats and helium vocals pretty tired even by 1995. Name of The DJ is very well known and deservedly receives its acclaim. For me though Daniça is the highlight and the peak for Chosen Few releases around this time. Simple, hard, pitch bending and filtering over a wickedly mean bassline. Clean yet nasty! Just how gabber should be.

"Name of the DJ" has become a huge underground hit, primarily due to the alternating bassdrum. According to Mokum website Francois himself argues that the "Name of the DJ" is the best Mokum track ever!

The sample "At the count of three I want you all to tell me the name of my DJ, one two three" comes from "terminator X to the edge of panic" from the legendary Public Enemy album "It takes a nation of millions to hold us back".
