strange hybryd of US vocal house (Kevin Saunderson's Inner city) & UK rave (Altern-8)! Still works out fine,imo.

This was probably the most different of the Inner City tracks at the time and still it's not something you characterise Inner City with. Reese's Vocal Trip serves as a cross between the darker hardcore techno and soulful side of Detroit Techno. While the Hardcore mix removes the piano riff and most of Paris' vocals sans the Hook and keeps the groove and bassline.

Altern8 takes Reese's parts and beefs it up for the clubs, going from a rough uk house route into a hardcore route. The house section focuses on the piano and a repeating phrase promoting ecstacy and the hardcore section uses a blippy synth and big dark saw synths with mayhem all around. The Alternate mix removes of the vocals completely

This has to be the darkest Inner City track made. No housy vocal tune this time but nasty dark hoover sounds (definitely marked as hardcore later on) combined with Paris Grey's vocals - a remarkable but great working combination.

The Altern 8 mixes take the hoover sounds to a next level, but in my opinion, the original reese vocal mix is the one. Sober, dark, steady going - hardcore avant la lettre. One of Reese's masterpieces. Let it reign down on me..forever!

Call it Hardcore if you want, but when it was released it actually was! Listen to this now and it is simply a masterpiece of Electronic music, Made in Detroit and mixed by the English masters of the breakbeat Altern8 then remixed by the Master, Reese himself, This is TECHNO!
