Long before Discogs I heard Bassbar on a random mix tape. I had ZERO way of identifying the track, so I used to play it over the phone to people in record shops round the county off my cheap tape player. This was 98', and obscure rave tracks were a hazy memory in the minds of ex-ravers who had grown up and had kids of their own - finding this was super difficult.

After a few years of calling shops, finally - someone had a copy of the record for me, mint too. I've kept it ever since.

Truly a special record - one every serous collector of 91-92 era rave/hardcore needs to have.

So glad to see lots of appreciation on here for it.

Jungle Techno. This may sound profound? But Leo is darkside Italia before UK dark side?

Bassbar was immortalised by Top Buzz especially at Fantazia and will go down in History as a defining moment for The Rave Scene. The other standout track being "Universal" which samples 808 State's Pacific State ironically that track will be remembered for The Acid House Generation 1989.

You will see everyone here praising Bassbar, but the true gem is Universal. It is all opinion anyways, judge for yourself.

Leo Anibaldi and Drexciya....... In the same studio... What an outcome that would have been!...Sorry I'm just dreaming again ;) ...
Ps BASSBAR effing rocks!....
JUNGLE-TECH KNOW straight outta ITALIA!!!
Bassssssline and tough as nails breakbeat with hefty slices of menacing and ghostly techno banshee sounds!!!!!!!
And yes the other 5 tracks are mos'def worth the money paid....
Here is a guy who serves up 6..Yes 6 extremely great tracks....
Most other producers would probably have to produce a huge stack of tracks before they even got half way to sounding this good...Peace ;)

I agree with spa5 regarding this record. Bassbar is a great, great track. But I find it somewhat limiting to appreciate just one track from here since there are other nice tracks on this release too. By far the best release on ACV. I'm no breakbeat hardcore purist or a techno purist for that matter but I do like my quality techno and acid aswell especially from this particular era. Which this 12" surely contains in droves.

Four of the tracks on this EP are fairly non-descript in my opinion, and then there's Bassbar. Two words - absolutely awesome. The way the synth riff builds and ocillates over the sub, combined with the break make this almost perfect, and well ahead of it's time. Proof that simple is often best - an absolute classic.

Bassbar on the B-Side is a classic Top Buzz 'back in the day' tune! The sampled short choir vocal played in a riff, with the slightly tube distorted pumping bassline and busy bustling chunky techno backbeat just works perfectly, add to that the 'odd' off-beat mute beep riff that comes in, just amazing stuff. Definitely in my top 100 ever.
