I think 'I Do Because I Couldn't Care Less' is the most beautiful music planet earth has ever seen.

"I Do Because I Couldn't Care Less" is an absolute beast of a tune, and worth getting just for this track alone. No cheese here, just pure, dark, unadulterated, psychotic, in yer face, warehouse electro mayhem for the headstrong. No gimmicks, no glitchy minimalist, intellectual BS. Just a hard, knockout punch in the face for your buck.

Unit Moebius affiliate Ferenc van der Sluijs brings a piece of dancefloor terror. Although the quality flow of this release is constant, the standout track for me is "I Do Because I Couldn't Care Less", if there ever was a track that is able to make you grind your teeth and stomp on the dancefloor until it starts to crack, this is it.

Analogue Warfare at it's finest.

I first heard this on a night drive to or from the San Fran airport,it was being played on College latenight radio like midnightish,Stanford radio I think ,sometime in 1996. It was 'superman', I was captivated and was like 'what on earth is this twisted electro stuff' hehe.I was familiar with electro and other strains from the 80s and up to the mid 90s at the time, but this was a new dimension. I found a copy around that time, and time to time again I return to the brilliantly insane music on this release, raw synths and 808 beats,mental lyrics. now 2012 and I find myself listening to it again afresh, and yep, It still makes me want superman to die.

Probably Electro(nics) best producer ever! The drive, the darkness and originality are one of a kind. Nothing can prepare you for a track like Superman or I do. 16 years after the first release this is still the standard... by far. The tunes coming out of The Hague and Rotterdam are amazing, respect!

You, the reader, are gonna' need both these gifts I'm sorry.

Above and beyond the high musical standard of the entire 12", I wanna first, single out I Do Because I Couldn't Care Less for a piece of my mind. I Do' stands out as an instant classic, of course, it did in the first moment's of hearing it hot of the presses, all these years ago now. The track is dead set on chasing you around the dance-floor, looking to kick your teeth out for daring to step to it. It's brutal music for the beautifully brutal dance-floors willing to unleash leviathans like this track.

Pounding systems is the natural habitat of this 12" monster, not Youtube. Imagine how lucky I feel, having experienced this bunker-buster in Morley, first-hand, in the correct setting for such a debacle. People lose their minds to this 12, always have, and because of medieval dj's like me, always will. If you're truly intent on nothing short of annihilating your Dance-Floors then you've come to the right place Bruvva!.

But now we get serious, in the words of Ordell Robie, "When you absolutely, positively, have to kill every Motherf&$%er in the room, except no Substitutes!", I myself, only have one word in describing to you the reader, the magnitude of the sonic terror contained within the grooves of this 12", Superman!.

The almost indescribable joy I derive from taking the leash of this beast is a little bit scary in of itself, I just can't wait to see my crowd's trying to figure out the logistics of dancing while not stepping on all the jaws around 'em. The destruction of your Dance-Floor can be achieved, even guaranteed, with the tactical deployment of this nuclear-powered funkmarine. Drop this twelve at your own discretion, but please heed this Public Health Warning!, make f&^%in' sure you have no dancers susceptible to heart-failure, the clubs telephone system will crash with all the calls to 000 Emergency, I sh!t you not. It's quite a sight, a club carpark full of ambulances blaring the sirens, flashing their lights everywhere, people on stretchers, bobbing theirs heads under the sheets, as they are lead out of the club to the opening strains of "Superman".

"Superman" is a geniunely scary, twisted tune - one for the hardcore! After a long night, I've literally had people hiding under my covers as I played it to them... with just their feet hanging out the end bobbing up and down! Strange how somehow, despite the sheer terror, it happens to be totally loved by all who are able to appreciate the concept. Personally one of my best tunes, if not my best. Just want to dedicate this one to all the pop fans out there....you know what to do :)

Amazing dark electro. All six tracks are wicked, but Superman is especially sick, dark with very disturbing vocals, urging someone to blow out their brain. Lovely... :)
