Aye, 3 solid tracks of hardness from Mr Dee. His other release as Knight Phantom on Rising High is much better I'd say.

A three track ep of old skool four-to-the-floor hardcore techno on the classic Rising High label, produced with that distinct, raw New York edge characterized by Lenny Dee.

A1 which is the main track, is a bass heavy, very solid, stomping 909 kick drum track, with a loud, cracking snare roll hit which adds a lot to the track. (Tango & Ratty sampled this snare hit in their classic UK hardcore tune "The Final Conflict" which was very popular circa 92/93, and so did many other hardcore/jungle producers following this release).
The main hook is a very loud, "mentasm" hoover, wall of sound that fills every part of a set of speakers leaving no gaps, this track is made for a warehouse. "What's the situation now?" "I don't know"..."I don't know"...

A2 Even more nutty sounds with the chipmunk infused vocal, slightly comical, "Kick Up The Volume Play It Loud", this time more of a freestyle, twisted approach with filtered analogue sounds and plenty of 909s, not forgetting the melting pot of raw hoover riffs.

A3 Is more chaotic still with a slight industrial edge and a robot, vocodered "Frequency Response" vocal, staccato vocal samples, distortion and harsh hoovers...mayhem.

All three tracks are stompin', but for me A1 is the winner.
