Notes

This release has two jokes on it. The first one is after track A1. An Mc tells in (funny) Dutch that this is a 'really dope track' and if you want to hear more, flip the record to the other side.
The other joke is after track B1. It's a weatherreport from a well known Dutch weather forecaster (Piet Paulusma). He also invites 'Sinterklaas', the Dutch Saint Nicholas.

Despite 1999 being a difficult year for Hardcore, G-Town Madness continued to produce excellent tracks. The Hustle is arguably their greatest achievement. Probably best known for it's catchy melody and gangster vocals. The sample itself is from the song Make Or Take by Nine and Smoothe Da Hustler. In hindsight, the slower BPM's and catchy melodies saved the Dutch Hardcore scene from dying out.

As the title suggests, Evil Returns is more closer to Darkcore, back when Darkcore and more mainstream Hardcore could be played together. The sample comes from the movie, The Fifth Element. Tell The DJ is really slow! You could easily mistake this for Hardstyle. It originally appeared on the Hardcore Element record, two years earlier. At the end of the B-side, there's an amusing phone call from South Central, Los Angeles.

As a side note, at the same time as the record was released, Mad-E-Fact gained international success under the name Alice Deejay with their popular song, Better Off Alone.
