To be quite honest, this record was in my box for a serious amount of time when it was first put-out. Why, you may ask?

Could it be because of the A-side track, ETERNAL SUN - "6/8 DRUMS" ('Yoru-Pean Drumz Remix' by PATHLESS; aka Stefan Leisering & Axel Reinemer from Jazzanova/Extended Spirit fame)? Yes, principally this track should be reason enough to own a copy. This version of the track was never released on the original 12" that came out on Wave Music in the US, yet it wins hands-down for being a different, infective, little dancefloor number.

Even when played by itself it works as an interesting tool record for breaking between styles or sections, what with the excellent rhythm timing and lull-points along the way. But once I had found it could be dropped with the 'MESS-APELLA' from the CRITICAL POINT-"MESSAGES" (MAW Records, cat.#: MAW 035), over the top of it after about half way through "6/8 DRUMS", I just couldn't believe how well the two tunes fitted when dropped correctly together. Perfect, you could say!

The second reason for loving this record is the B1 track, DJ VENOM - "BRAZILLIKA". Again, not released anywhere else but this compilation, it has Bluey's son Daniel doing duties on this one.
Given its title, it packs a punch equal to anything you'll hear coming from the country of Brazil itself, especially with it coming in at a hefty 138 bpm! Some may put this track in the broken-beat camp, yet it defies description of such sort as the rhythm just doesn't fit, although the feel of it makes it certainly playable next to such tracks. Wait until you get the bassline warbling itself into your head, and feel the sense of suspense throughout the track — both making you feel just a little uneasy at times...
Moody it tries to be, and it'll certainly leave you feeling a bit on edge by the end.
