A thought occurred to me about the two different presses of this, (I’ve had copies of each at some point). The pressings I’m talking about are:

1. Single-sided press
2. Double-sided press - same track on both sides

I’ve seen a couple of different sources (including some of the comments here) claim that this was connected to the Back 2 Basics label (Jason Ball/DJ Nexus etc…). The single-sided press would seem to support this, as it is pressed on a thin vinyl exactly like the early Back 2 Basics releases. The label quality and ridges around the centre hole are also the same. Back to Basics were keen on single-sided releases at this time too, with #2 #3 and #7R all being single-sided.

The double-sided version however is pressed on a thicker vinyl with different quality labels, and came in a sleeve with rounded edges just like other Edge releases at the time. The quality and feel of this vinyl is the same as other Edge releases too.

So here’s my theory: Could it be possible that the single-sided release was pressed up as an unofficial remix by Back 2 Basics with a limited run of 500, and the double-sided release was pressed up by DJ Edge? In a nutshell, he bootlegged an unofficial remix of his own tune in order that he would get something back from it?

It would certainly explain why there seems to be so many copies of this kicking around.

That could be bollocks of course, and maybe it’s just my imagination running wild. But it’s a thought…

Interesting to take into account all of the (very strong & decent arguments to it's origins by everyone below) & mix the stories all in to one single-sided EP that there must be some truth in there somewhere...I also pressed Dj Edge on it at the time on his visit to Oz to no avail & just a smile "oh THAT track" he laughed, but the main thing it definately caused the rukus & ill-feeling behind the scenes for it to be kept quiet THIS long...either way, TOP REMIX whoever it was by & big respect to them for producing this excellent tune for the masses not their ego!

while listening to some old tunes I notice that the words I need something stronger could of actually been sampled from this track, EON - Infinity (Space/Time Mix)

I was told in a conversation I had with Jason Ball who ran the Back to Basics record label & shop back in the late 90's that he in fact did this remix, I have no reason not to believe him.

Looking back on it now this really screams of Vibes and Wishdoctor to me? It could be a precursor to the Naughty Naughty series. The evidence is there, same pressing plant, same distributor, and the production is so similar when you really listen to it.

At the date of this comment 404 discogs members have this.. Maybe time to accept that slightly more than 500/600 were pressed/released?!

I just read on some forum that this was Nexus & Blowback? Now if it was remotely Dj SS I would not be surprised as he did sample the original quite a bit in his tunes in 1993, but whether it was or not will still remain a mystery!

From industry gossip at the time this was an in house re-edit of Compnded and is by the artist DJ Edge though not neccesarily edited by him.

Due to the distributor (P&D deal) not paying the label in a timely manner, they said they cannot press up anymore of their releases. This was bad timing as 'Compnded', after floating for a while, had now blown up massively and they had a cash in remix of it ready to go. The Dist decided to go ahead anyway. So, it is an unofficial release put out by the official distributor.

This naturally caused quite a stink and led to the cancelling of the contract. It was agreed not to sue and the first 500 copies were allowed to be forgotten about as long as they did not press anymore up.
Which they did, big time.

This should rightly be credited to 'DJ Edge' and not 'Unknown Artist', which is insulting.
