File this under "guilty listening pleasure." OK, no serious (cough) electronic music type would be caught dead listening to a record that now seems to have all of the elements that are generally despised: the "ethnic" vocal sample (OK, at least Hardfloor were actually remixing the vocal here, instead of it being another example of Johnny Laptop going down to the World Music section of his local Best Buy and picking up "African Tribal Noises Vol. 13" and looping it in his sampler) - the acid line - and, since it's 1995 - the obligatory big, big, oh-so-big rolling-snare-drum build up right in the center of it.

Yes, this record has 1995 written all over it - but there's just something about it that just kicks ass. If I could only have one record in my collection that exemplified this 1995 sound, it'd be this one. One night I listened to it about ten times in a row. You get the idea.
