No doubt about it, the original mix is on the a-side for a reason.

I still remember hearing this track for the first time on a mix CD from the old Wax magazine, and being blown away.

Funny as it may sound, back in '99 we still didn't really care much for pigeonholing. You'd regularly find House, Techno & Trance in the same mix. And this track, my god it would always be the last track in a set!

Pounding, relentless Techno of the highest order. It takes forever to build up, which is a DJ's dream. Once it does break, you're in for the journey of your life. I listened to it stone cold sober, but whatever state you're in it's guaranteed to blow you away.

Quite influential too, IMO. I can hear a lot of it in later Marco V productions.

And, of course that vocal...

LONDON... LET'S 'AVE YERRRRRRRRR!

The Original Mix is an out-and-out London free party classic - the low secondhand prices on here are ridiculous, especially when one sees how much certain much-lesser tunes are selling for.

I used to attend and play at a mixture of events at the time of this record's release, i.e. hard house/hard trance/psy-goa/acid techno, both in the legal and not-so-legal scene. This one always got great responses just about everywhere I heard it, but particularly the Original Mix during acid techno sets.

One of THE breakdowns to die for - different to, but clearly in the same league as classics like "Access", "Astrosyn" and "Unlucky Punk".

Big just about everywhere, including at Magic in High Wycombe/Reading from 1999-2003, where I was one of the residents - not the biggest or best known night in the world, but sometimes it's the smaller events which maintain some of the happiest memories. Anyone who reads this and was there when we managed to get Chris Liberator to play there will know EXACTLY what I mean.

One of a growing number of records I am increasingly unlikely to ever get rid of, and one which will probably be found when I drop dead - when the relatives who never gave a f*** about me when I was alive come round to clear up, they will probably find this and other tunes (not to mention my soundsystem) and wonder "WTF is all this????"

haha!!

I'm with Vinguru---the original is where it's at here (and no disrespect to OD404, but to my mind, this is an ACID release more than a hard-house one).

I heard a rumor that Mark Tyler basically asked Geezer to engineer the track for him. I don't know if that's true, but yeah, that's what I heard a little while back.

Regardless, when the sample drops after the long, building breakdown, all you can do is succumb to the acid-techno power. MONSTER tune.

Sorry, disagree - this release is all about the OD404 remix. Good enough that I bought it again after my original slab of wax got scratched by the police! Massive hoovers, massive slice of NRG!

This track was strangely released in Helsinki, Finland (at least the party flyer said so). The release party was held in the club called Vertigo (which ruled the hard house scene in Finland during that time). If I remember right the speakers kind of exploded during Mark´s set and the club was evacuated. Later in the next Muzik magazine there was this saints and sinners page where Mark ended up as a sinner for blowing up the release party.

Anyway, the original track is a really strong and evil piece of driving techno with a long (almost 2 minutes) breakdown shouting the tracks name... Remixes are also fine (Jon the Dentist one being dark hard trance and OD404 giving the hoover treatment) and you might know the OD404 version of this easier, but I stick to the original one, recommended!
