Incredible track, still punches through today, perfectly arranged by Mr Clarke. This has got everything, a great drum track, captivating synth mangled in DC's signature ADSR sampler style, a message. Eternal classic.

This (IMO) is a near perfect techno tune. After all this time it can be dropped at a club and it'll sounds fresher than most of the set played that night. The main groove is the best arpeggio bassline you'll ever hear, mixed in with another arpeggio synth that slides in and out around the low end. The overdriven piano stab and 909 low tom that comes in at about 1.59 sounds like its going to destroy the track at first, but it's pulled off in style. Short and sweet.

One of the best kicks you'll ever hear too ;)
