Forget the contact mix, it just happens to be first in the You-Tube list. It is the heavily reverbed double kick drum with the monster off beat bass of the original that had people climbing the walls back in the day. So simple yet so devastating. The Sean Connery sample in the contact mix is lame. On the other hand the originals: "Somebody Give The Lord A Handclap". Bam!

The voice sample of Sean Connery is taken from the Movie ' The Hunt For Red October '. Second voice sample 'The Sonar is Clear' isn't Mr. Connery but the sonar guy. Nice to know, atleast I do.

One of My all time Euro techno traxs.The Sean Connery sampling, aquatic infuenced 'Contact Mix' sounds like it was made to played in a dark wharehouse or club. It's got a very hard/heavy, deep kick drum over that repetative meng syndicate riff!
