Alex Banks on Facebook commenting on Ascension:
"We started with the orchestral stab pattern that comes in halfway through the tune. I loved this, but had some difficulty wrapping a tune around it. The tape demo shows this.

Eventually we got a load of new sample CDs and came across the spooky intro pad and quirky synth loop.

The drums sound a bit Tod Terry and the sub is Juno 6.

There are plenty of little Hyper-On drum edits and tricky programing that we loved doing at that time.

Each one of these had to be manually entered into the hardware sequencers - a process that I enjoyed immensely! I don’t play an instrument as such, but I could program the fuck out of that MMT8!

Loads of Malcolm McLaren Buffalo Gals samples.

Every 16 bars changes. New samples come in towards the end of the tune. New riffs are introduced late in the song - Danny did a lot of these."

Alex Banks on Imajika:
"Sampled pad intro with Korg M1 presets. Outrageously cheesy Jazzy vibe playing.

Juno 6 sub, of course.

Breakdown to rave stab played in a joyful pattern. Drum rolls.

There is a sample that says: “Well you'd better hurry up Sir!”. Dj Peshay loved this and said: “No one uses samples like that!”.

Lots of Norman Cook - Skip to my Loops samples

2nd breakdown has a more Rave/Happy Hardcore feel to it.

3rd switch seems a little dubby.

4th switch with vibe sound is a little intense! I guess you’d call it a bridge nowadays, but we extend it before returning to the original riff.

The title came from a Clive Barker book - Imajica. I just couldn’t remember how to spell it!

I told you that we used to work standing up? We danced all the way through making this tune. Danny has a big smile."

Alex Banks on A Certain Emotion (Al's Theme(
"I guess I was just a skinny messed up kid, or something, but I remember this tunes meaning a lot about how I was feeling at the time.

Sampled pad with Korg M1 piano.
Sampled vocal note and Korg synth.
Vocal sampled looped in the Akai using crossfade overlap.
Korg flute playing hookline.
Sampled Hammond.
“Stirring Stuff” sample came from sampling the radio.
Dropping to standard 4x4.

The modulated synth bassline was a variation of an eq trick we used to do. We would effect a synthline by massively boosting the midrange and then sweeping the eq frequency. This one was done in the same way, but modulating a phasor effect in the Korg.

As Hyper-On we didn’t do many 4x4 tracks. I guess this was a final gasp before Danny removed all the kicks!

Still managed to slip in the cheesy: “One, two, three, four” sample at the end ;-)"
