I was only introduced to Jay Dee following his death. I purchased this record and was immediately blown away by his distinctive heavy, raw sound. Alot of the tracks appear quite simple, but that is why they are so effective. The stand out track for me is "Pause", the beats are lethal. Definitely dancefloor based, that much is clear. His tracks can cross the divide from hip hop to that detroit house/techno sound, purveyed by the likes of the three chairs and Carl Craig. Badly missed, RIP
