Yes agree with the review below, Running The Family is total beast of a tune - quite unique and cinematic considering it could be classed as a jump up track. Epic sirens, a really catchy dub vocal, ultra cut up Think break and tons of bass - unfortunately quite rare and never played much. Possibly a little ahead of its time in its arrangement and overshadowed by more dance friendly tunes. As noted in the reply, Bryan Gee played it at Dreamscape 11 but may have had an airing elsewhere at the time.
Wish I owned it and a shame it never got a proper release. Big big tune.

Obviously 'Dread Bass' is a well know tune but 'Running in the Family' is an abosolute stormer! Not that typical of Moving Shadow releases a the time in the way it uses very ragga vocals that would sound more at home on a label such as Jungle Slam or Fist2Fist etc. Not sure it it was played back in the day or why it did not get an official release but overall an excellent record.
