I looked for this track, Teutonic Beats(Teutonic Fly mix), ever since hearing it on a Fantasy FM show I recorded in London in 1989. It was like finding a Holy Grail when I finally found out what it was only recently. A strange, but brilliant, mixture of styles that could only have came out when it did, when individual dance music styles weren't as codified as they eventually became. Part New Beat, part House, part Techno and part Hip-Hop styles, it's still as cool today as it was then.

Back in the time Sun Electric was still in ZTT hands, here was their collaborative effort with Thomas Fehlmann to produce a kind of snapshot of what was to come in the uptempo euro sound of House.
When A side is a cool but average exercise in mashing up many influences in a non-megamix track, lacking a real direction, the B side is much more interesting."Let's Panic" is an uptempo track with an EBM-like main synth line, while the other track is a very original blend of electro-pop and synth strings.
Not a gem, but interesting listen, and original.
