Believed to be second pressing of Unit 1 - Modular Expansion. This record was repressed with the track "Tension Dream" instead of "Hip In The House". This was probably due to author rights problems because of the use of vocal samples from Ya Kid K in Hi Tek 3 - Spin That Wheel in the "Hip In The House" track.

Frank De Wulf was one of my favorite producers back in the early 90's and he doesn't disappoint with this 12".
Its worth listening to all the tracks on here, but its Cubes that's the stand out track and became a big track back in 90. Driving beats topped with a simplistic, infectious driving synth rift with acid elements weaving in and out of the track. This is one of my all time favorite tracks which I never tire of. This track still sounds great today too.
Its worth having a listen to all the B-Sides series and or Frank De Wulf releases if you enjoy this 12".

Cubes is a 4-star Rave tune. It also marks the transformation from New Beat to (Techno) Rave back in 1990.

For me the track to buy this EP for has to be Square Root 5. By far the most envigorating rave-based tune of this quartet.

Contains what is propably one of Frank De Wulf's best known Rave tracks: 'Cubes' which was remixed by him for the second Modular Expansion release 'Unit II'
The original version is the best.
