duh-dum dum dum dum... Strip down Deep Inside and it is incredibly simple built up with very basic plink-plonk sounds. Yet a catchy drum programming and only Masters can put something like this together.

"Just Believe" contains vocal samples of "Blaze ‎– So Special" (1990).

I hope the ep gets a special repress. Loads of goodies on here.

I’ve always found it hard to understand the obsession with this track. Strangely obtaining a cult-like obsession in the UK, particularly with Garage DJ’s.

Perhaps one of the most un-Louie Vega tracks I can think of, that he put his name to. Made more understandable by the fact that it was actually Erick Morillo twiddling the knobs on this. Louie also confirmed recently (on the Red Bull Music Academy Lecture that MAW did), that mastering killed this track (which makes sense when you hear how hard the kick is in relation to the rest of the track).

Released a year in advance of “Beautiful People” to make people aware of the hook, before unleashing the Barbara Tucker monster into clubland (which IMHO is far superior).

Another classic. Kenny Dope/MAW were slammin' cuts back then. Goes well with a Lady Miss Kier.

Listening to "Deep Inside" again still gives me the Goosebumps. What a fantastic track!
Just some tight and crisp beats with that simple plink-plonk synth-line. It is truly amazing track hence how simple it is.
If you listen closely, each element in it (The beats, the synth-line, the Bass line and the piano vibes), it is kinda dated, but all these put together makes the track so fresh and groovy and make it stand out for years to come.
It is also fun to mix in CJ Mackintosh remix of "Beautiful People" right after "Deep Inside", which is the same track but with vocals, then make the crowd go more wild and bring the track to new heights. Anyone can take 10 minutes of is believe me.
Another aspect to the story of this record is that it was put together in Erick Morillo's old Studio in New York.

Absolutely love this record, remember hearing "Deep Inside" on a college radio station "alternative" mix show back in '94 and later on a mix tape that was passed around from pull out to pull out car deck within my crew. Wish I had a dollar for every time a young cat comes up and asks, "Hey, who is that?" Classic.
