I was under the impression there were only 5 test presses... How come 13 people have it?

Quality re-press this one, Main original mix is nice and loud and doesn't have that over the top "CD" style sound that a lot of represses seem to have, The other 2 mixes are quality aswell, Ripped apart and put back together with classic result's, The HWND mix has a "Basement Records" feel to it, The DJ Stoopid mix is dark side sounds.....Both quality remixes of a classic track.

The UNOFFICIAL BOOTLEG copy should not be mixed up with the original release!!! please dont buy dodgy represses it goes against the whole point of collecting original vinyl in my opinion, people who do these represses from MP3`S dont care about the music they just want to make money out of people who want to pay for it, it really does my head in..

WOW...What a tune ! You have to smile at the amount of sampling of the "75 film " Jaws " in this track , but it's perfectly ( in my opinion ) done . From the samples used , to the absolutely timeless old-skool percussion , even a pumpin' happy hardcore bassline ( alternate octave notes in 4/4 time ) which is simple , but very , very , effective . what I think makes this tune is the way it has been arranged . Most of the Jaws samples are in order with the film , and this , combined with the way the rhythm track builds ( or releases ) the tension , really is like listening to a 6-7 minute musical version of the film . The best ( and most unexpected ) part though occurs about a minute from the end . Excel releases his sample of Chief Brody's (Roy Schnider ) line " you're gonna need a bigger boat " and it all drops back in , like a meteorite , harder than ever for one last time . Most DJ's seem to omit this section from their sets . Get one if you can , and play it at +3 pitch . Only 1000 pressings were ever made , apparently .
