I bought this when it came out at the Sonic Groove store. Unfortunately there's only one good track on here, "parameter". Said tune is a nice 1991 amen tune with cords I would associate with dark jungle music. It's quite nice. The other tracks on this ep are more into the acid house territory which isn't trying to reach out to my tastes. Two stars, the missing stars are for three bad tracks here.

A frankly suprising record for those who always experienced Dave Clarke as a banging techno wizard.
Past the pleasant melodic electro-breakbeat-techno opening "Parameter" (a very nice rave moment), the two tracks featuring vocals from Laura Jane are amazing loud mid-tempo jewels with gritty, dark, crawling sexual atmosphere, like a successful mix between slowed-down hoovering hardcore, EBM and some new-beat reminiscences. Like a louder/tougher almost 10-years pre-dating to Miss Kittin, DJ Chloe or Rework's bittersweet, sweaty and sexually ambiguous synth-house efforts on Gigolo, Playhouse or KilltheDJ, this sounds like an anthem for Paris' cult (and now defunct) electro lesbian club Pulp, no worries I discovered it courtesy of Jennifer Cardini, one of Pulp's classic residents in the early 2000's.
