Gotta Release is one of the best tunes of the era, dark, sadistic and unlike anything else DJ Red Alert and Mike Slammer have ever done.

Can't thank Clarky Cat enough for that review. I have been after Gotta Release for about 19 years after hearing it on a Slipmatt Dance Planet tape when I was at school. Thought I would listen to the youtube clip as the review was so good & as soon as I heard the eerie ringing bell on the intro I knew it was the one I was after, with the 'In the line of fire' sample & the phased breakbeat into a full-on tearout session. Wicked!!

Now this is a serious detour from the masters of happy - red alert and mike slammer - ruffer is a more dark tinged version of their previously released track "ruff" but the one you want on here is definitely "gotta release" - from the moment you hear those dark chords it's 5 n arf minutes of grinding uplifting frankly evil sounding hardcore that really grabs you by the bollocks before trailing off to dreamy sounding pads - i defy anyone not to feel the overwhelming need to go mental when you hear this - a veritable masterpiece from '93
