Everybody knows '95 Style, was played on the Happy Hardcore scene by all the top jocks at one point or another, particularly Slipmatt, whose label it featured on. Lovely intro sound building into rolling snares/kicks before teasing with breakbeat edits and then into full swing...what follows is lovely sub bass up & down notes, vocal snippets, great cut up breakbeats, sometimes time-stretched sometimes played like notes as a block, and a nice twisty synth sound leading into rave stabs that Demo seemed to use so well on his tunes....massive "wooo" vocals then carry the tune forward into a gorgeous piano/vocal segement that highlights this energetic and euphoric tune! Phew, what a gem!!

Not as widely known or played was the excellent 'No Justice', with its harder edged synths, rollicking amen breaks and mint stuttering vocals made famous by Foul Play's "Feel The Vibe (Again)". Big bass drops into nice rave riffs followed by the strong breaks and vocals interspersed here and there..... this plays out for a few minutes before dropping into a nice piano sequence with the vocals made famous in Dance Conspiracy's "Dub War" . There's a nice sequence of cut up breaks and vocals playing out over one another on pauses after the 4:30 min mark, when most DJs would have probably mixed out....not a huge anthem sound like 95 Style but unfairly overlooked I reckon for those into the Happy Breakbeat sound (of which Demo produced so well) :)
