Imperial March is an absolute gem. I went off Hardcore at this point as it was getting pretty cheesy but this one kind of stays true to the old style. When the Star Wars tune comes in it rolls along nice & rough then all of a sudden it drops into into one of the most euphoric breakdowns I've ever heard. I often slip this in at the end of a '93 Hardcore set because this track is so fucking sublime.

Imperial March (Star Wars Mix) is a tune. Brilliant hardcore.

I remember listening to this tune in Fusion Records (Portsmouth) heard it at loads of raves but never knew what it was.
Proper rushy track, like all the early Happy Tunes.

Side B is my favourite. When 'Imperial March' begins and you here the Star Wars sample you expect the record to be quite dark. However, the breakdown is heavenly and so unexpected. Absolute class.

The A side is the better known track on here but personally, I far prefer the B, Imperial March. As you'd expect from the name it is a rip of the Star Wars theme of the same name - but it's much more than that, as it features one of the most uplifting string breakdowns I've ever heard in a hardcore track. 2 massive anthems for any old hardcore lover's tastes.

The first time i heard this it was after a major hardcore event, my mrs and i sat on the bed turned on a cd we got that day and the last track on mix one was this one, when she hits the last "RUUUUSHIIIIN...." My body hair nearly leapt of my skin and my heart sped up around 200bpm!! what a choon, pure cheezy but not classic that will always give me a natural pilley buzz, awesome!!

i give it full points, the looped triolic breakbeat is fine, well arranged, some funny elements, scratches and "snaredrum melody" (dunno how to call it *g*)
but the best is the vocals together with piano and squares. really thrilling f# minor with e major, continueing with B, A back to f#. sounds very emotionally intense.

This is one of the classic uplifting tunes that realy gets the blood rushing and the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. A must for anybodys "old skool" collection.
The vocals realy bring up to the dance floor, reach inside and pull out of your misery.

Side A has what sounds like real vocals "I am rushing on pink champaiaiaiagne...I am rushing rushing rushing ruuuuushing". Kinda cheesy but very catchy. Nice dreamy pianos too. The kickdrum hasn't yet taken over happyhardcore completely so there are some mashed up breakbeats as well. The other side is ok too.
