Can I dare review this, Sacrilege? 1996 an amazing creative year

I remember the old ideas all minds are still fresh :)

Part One so you think you've heard a classic - it's 303 driving and evolves in it's synth line 4.21 nice

Part 2 however is a different affair what do we have here is it ? sample LOVELY !!!!!!!!!

Have you heard a driving crisp clear building 303 line like this before or since - combining the drum patterns a few cymbals, bassline
incredible trance acid breakdown quietens down at 3.33 lulling you into a false state then / intense re-construction with a zulu style tribal military kick, ethereal vocal, yet to identify

I'd champion that sound oh does that sound familiar ?

3 copies cd and 2 vinyl original and white label both ------- Vinyl sounds sooooooooooooooooo much better - FACT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!l

Ice Rain is pounding acid trance with a 303 edge but the real acid treat is Part 2 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is undisputedly one of the most excellent releases in a major player's roster of all-time greatest labels.
Think "Bladerunner" meeting a Snow-Cat™ in an abandoned spaceship, slowly orbiting a planet near it's dying star...bubbling away from you as your oxygen runs out...but you don't care...

In my humble opinion, this is, quite simply, the best Noom EP ever released. It's Michael Kores at the top of his game: fantastic acid work, haunting trance-style melodies, heavy kick-drums, and great overall structure. Indeed, all three tracks are epic; Matabu Part 1 features a very intense 303 riff as its most prominent characteristic, Part 2 is just an absolute masterclass and one of my fave acid trance tunes ever, and Ice Rain is a slightly more austere acid-trancer, which continues to add layers of melody and acid as it goes along.

Bottom line, this release is a must have for hard trance, acid trance, and Michael Kores fans -- it is the best of all those worlds.

Peace!

It's time to strap on your techno jack boots, cos you're gonna need them.

All 3 tracks are superb technoid acid trancers, but 'Matabu (Part Two)' is the most vicious of the lot.

The track has a grimy spacey futuristic theme to it, with layers of stomping acid, and ends with some mystical Indian chanting.
