Okay, the cut on this piece is definitely Latin Seoul, which i think of as Sneak's take on the DJ Pierre wild pitch sound. with a lot of his releases during this time frame though, he includes these sometime jarring dissonant string sections that just for me really detracts from groove. Fierce! has it too... still i think fondly of Sneak's sound from this time period, driving hours to hear him play in DC when I should have been sleeping or studying off in the foothills of central Virginia.

Strong EP for that mid 90s disco filtered looped style that Sneak is the king of. It hasn't dated.

The constant loop in "Latin Seoul" (the up-and-down squeaky sound is caused by a high-resonance stereo flanger effect)is a sample taken from Derrick May's First Illusion Remix of "Sueño Latino", which in turn samples Manuel Gottsching's "E2-E4", also sampled by Carl Craig for his Paperclip People alter-ego's "Remake" - and, if you have four decks, and can use them well enough to play all four records simultaneously, it sounds absolutely ghastly, I know, I've tried...

Here’s a good house record if you can still find it. Skip side A completely. It’s useless disco filters that don’t really go anywhere. Go to side B. Here we have “Latin Seoul”. This was the first track that Doc Martin used on his “Unlock Your Mind” mixed CD. This is a pretty neat house track that has what seems to be a distorted & quirky guitar loop that is constantly present in the track followed by a filtered organ loop & a synthesizer sound that takes it away. Very good track. “Fierce” (Queens Anthem) is a nice & smooth house track that has a bit of percussion & some hypnotic keyboard sounds. This is a must have for all house heads. (^_^ )
