First heard "Rotation" after buying the record and fell in love with it instantly. Imagine my never ending delight when it was the record playing whilst I set foot into the main tent and my first ever rave (Raindance). That evening, I did 'pump it up' and I did 'jack it to the maximum'. Excellent tune - IMHO the best "Digital Boy" has done.

ROTATION. First heard this on the car radio, in the car park of The Wheatsheaf public house, Cuckfield, in 1990. It was being played in a Kiss FM mix (possibly by Carl Cox). Having been a fan of acid house & Detroit techno for some time, this summed up the new harder sounding techno/acid combination that helped to create the rave generation. Took 15 years to find out who'd made the track, always thought it must be a rare 808 state B-side. Remains, probably, the record that influenced my taste towards house music more than any other. Not deep, not subtle, not clever - just works, bang on, in much the same way as other minimalistic house tracks. Opens with a Monastic argh chant & air-raid sirens, then scratchy hook, Theme from S'Express kazoo stuff & interspersed with acidic breakdowns. P.P.P.P.P.P.Pump me up. Like this? Check out Spectrum~Brazil remix...

Appears to be a megamix in two seperate pieces at first sight. Sequencing together quite a lot of Italian (with some exceptions) hits of early 1990. But hidden on the B-Side is a seperate track by Digital Boy that I haven't seen anywhere else. Big one at Boccaccio due to heavy analog screeching sounds, wicked acidlines, massive Mc samples and large breakbeats : this sounds like a track done more or less semi-live, but with what an impact. Little treasure, little bit exposed now !!
