DJ Milton's 'hitting hard' from the word go, with "909 State" kicking off with pounding warehouse-style kicks and eye-splittingly sharp snares and hi-hats. "Star Trek" combines a hypnotic Lil'Louis-style synth line and the classic Dance Mania 'claps on kicks' technique to make a more mid-set track. "Get the Phone" winds up the A-side with a track that reminds me of both Robert Armani's "Circus Bells" and Visage's "Frequency 7", although I can't really explain why.

It's the B-side that comes out on top for me, though, with "Birthday Girl" featuring a suitably dirty set of chants and verses to be of use to the booty/ghetto-tech DJ (heavily pitched up, of course). "Ow! Dat Dik" is more minimal and tracky, but is just about raw enough to hit the spot with me.
