Side Effects was inspired by Ron Trent's track Altered States. It got it's name because it was recorded live and during the recording Garnier was playing around with the effects.
Rachando O Bico means "laughing your head off" in Portuguese and was inspired by his visit to Brazil and the people he meet there. It's inspired by Robert Hood's style at that time.
Pigalle was made with Cajmere in mind. Cajmere had DJed in Paris and stayed for a whole week, hanging out with Garnier. Pigalle is Paris' answer to Soho in London, so the orgasm sounds fitted.
Aquarius was inspired by the Model 500 album that was out around the same time this EP was made. It got it's title as Garnier's star sign is Aquarius, and because the bass on the track was quite watery.
Dance 2 The Music was inspired by a track made by Ralphie Dee that Garnier had heard played in the early 90s at the Eclipse in Coventry. Ralphie eventually gave him the samples he had used and this was the result.
Pervert got it's name after Garnier played it to his girlfriend. She said he sounded like a pervert on it.

A very impressive little package here, showcasing Laurent in straight club mode. Great tracks for the dancefloor with that typical flow we all love him for. "Rachando O Bico" sounds like the cute, funky little brother of "Crispy Bacon". "Pigalle" indulges us with tasty moaning red light Techno frenzy, "Pervert" goes down the housey route for nice n' slow eroticism. "Dance 2 The Music" is a hymn like they just don't make 'em anymore, "Aquarius" evokes Detroitian goosebumps all the way, and "Side Effects" leaves a lasting impression with rough drum machine workouts.

A treasure trove of mid-nineties Techno - not to be overlooked!
