The remix on this promo E.P. can't be found on original or remix on Network records. It's actually much more laid back with well known breakbeat and quite atmospheric. Considering this was produced in 1992, it holds up really well in 2018 (26 years later).

MC Lethal pressed 1,000 copies of this unsigned promo and self-distributed it before handing it over to Great Asset to distribute in the south, with Extreme Noise doing the north.

The track was scheduled to be recorded at Baseroom Studios but the sessionw as cancelled. Before the re-arranged date Lethal went to Nic Britton's studio to do some pre-production before the track was finished at Baseroom. He signed to Network Records and was given a full release, but due to barcoding errors it only reached no. 66 in the UK singles chart.

Picked up today in second hand re odd shop. For less than the price of a pint!!
1992 - probably the best year for hardcore IMO.

This cd doesn't include the 2 Bad Mice Remix, but for me it's Lethal's Original Mix that's the must-have tune. Piano driven, tough edged breakbeat - Pure class.

The vocal part that goes "yeah this is lethal" I believe is sampled from Lethal "Techno Stylin" 1991. As far as I can see MC Lethal and Lethal are not the same person.

Listening to this gem again and it becomes clear that there will be never be anthems like this for a long while. The scene, music and people made for consistently strong material and enjoyment. Now I'm in the U.S with all my oldies and loving every one of them! Red October Crew..Respeck!

If there is one tune that sums up the sound of UK 1992 hardcore breaks / rave music, it is the dj ss mix of ravedigger. The original is a good track, but the dj ss version blows it away in my opinion. The track starts with the most apt vocal sample of any 1992 uk rave track "this , is the one you been waiting for, hardcore" and is followed by the perfect hardcore synth riff. Phat bassline, phatt beats, 1992 classic vocal "gotta believe we can make it real, just be yourself gotta do what ya feel", it doesnt get better than this, top top tune.
