A record that will not go away. This is a modern classic and highlights how creative/effective sampling can be if done correctly. A record that crosses genres; not only in electronic circles either.

The fact that this has been remixed virtually every 3-4 years since its release shows us how important this record is. It now does sound very dated, and it shows how far bedroom producers techniques have come since the early 90's when listening to this now. But that thrown together feel its all part of its charm.

I can only imagine what the response to this was when it was dropped at a rave somewhere in a disused aircraft hangar.

Essential record...

This is very much a record of its time, but out of all the breakbeat hardcore records released in late 1991 and through 1992, this is possibly the only one that still remains relevant. This is not just because it's built around the classic house track 'Someday' by Ce Ce Rogers, but also because of the excellent understanding of how to use the breakbeat production techniques to take the piano line into a grown up direction featuring symphonic sweeps.

The 'Original Mix' is the one to go for; it's basically a full length version of the one that got played on the radio. Also look out for the excellent accompanying promo video featuring the Liquid boys and their 'crew' playing their synthesizers and dancing about in a woodland area, some swimmers diving off high cliffs, and a girl who just doesn't know how to stop dancing.

Years on, this remains the best record from that genre, and is still as cool as the day you first heard it.

My only gripe is the poor sound quality on the recording that suggests this should be due for the remastering or re-recording treatment - though not remixing.
