I used to record Fabio & Grooverider on the radio and then listen to the show every day on the way to and from work. I remember vividly the show that this was from. It was from the time when Hospital were first beginning to make inroads with 'Pull the Plug' and 'Songs in the Key of Knife' in about 1998. Fabio played 'Muthafunker' and 'Who Has the Jazz' by Primary Motive for the first time on that show, announcing that both would be on Creative Source. 'Muthafunker' was a Fender Rhodes led stormer with brass hits, wah-wah guitar and a filthy bass-line. It was musically really well developed but retained the dancefloor edge of the likes of Peshay and EZ Rollers who had really started to gain interest from ouside the scene.

When the tune finally came out, I never really played 'Muthafunker.' It was hard to mix into anything without killing the vibe and it started with the beat, so it wasn't really a set opener. 'Interchange', on the other hand, was pure funk filth. The dirtiest of synth riffs powered along a truly contemporary sounding funk homage. It lacked the generic samples that dated so many early liquid tunes so quickly; there was nothing novelty about this record at all. I used to cane this tune. I could never quite understand why it seemed to disappear without trace.
