All three of the early Earth Leakage Trip EPs are top notch trippy as fuck affairs. The choice of samples and overall construction of the tracks is completely unique and mind binding.

Whilst "The Ice Cream Van From Hell" is the best known and most easily identifiable track on this release, I personally enjoy "Strange" the most. It spans a melancholy and unsettling "I had a dream that people started to panic" intro before bursting into energetic acid a few minutes in, finally descending into tribal wailing in the later section of the track.

This is most certainly not music by numbers or formulaic techno/hardcore. Ensure you have plotted a path back to reality before putting the needle on the record.

Just found a copy of this. Fantastic classic psychedelic breakbeat and worth more than the prices listed here. Earth Leakage Trip's other EP goes for £70 ~ £110 one day I'll find an affordable copy grrr!

Took me years to track this down, back in the days of dial-up connection and only being able to use the internet at my Dad's workplace, with htfr being the main source of vinyl gems such as this. Just had to keep checking back until they finally had it in stock, after hearing it on a pirate version of Kaos theory 3 I bought on tape at a charity shop in the late 90s. Ice cream van from hell came on right at the end and cut off before it finished as the tape wasn't long enough. I had to hear the rest of the track and it achieved almost mythical status for me, it has a really nice old skool horror film feel to it. I'm sure the chimes used in the intro are actually the same notes from Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, although I'm not sure where the children's singing is from. The other reviews on here are spot in for the other side, never really fitted in with anything else I had from that era. Old skool sound but still ahead of their time

Ice cream van from hell is one of the most PIMP incredible techno tunes in the history of breathing mankind. Havent heard it in over 15 years till just now again - and had tears rolling down my face the entire time. Memories......

Check "Electric Fan" 1992....sounds like it was recorded in 2092!
From the opening industrial humm and computer like voices suddenly from nowhere drops in one of the best drum break loops you could ever here fading in and out and a mad synth sounds which im sure is the sound you get in your head after a night of munching acid tabs!
I was fortunate enough to be given a promo from Demix and I played it at a local hardcore night!
They didn’t get it...Which says it all!
Way out in front when it first came out....
If there is one undiscovered gem from the 90s then this is it!
