At a time when hardcore labels and producers were largely moving towards jungle or happy hardcore, New Decade / Out of Romford were unusual in moving towards techno/trance. Which is maybe why this album remains relatively obscure?

But for me it's a wonderful snapshot of a time when rave music still had so much unexplored territory, and was developing in so many directions. There's some great breakbeat hardcore - all very different too, ranging from the epic "Statue of Gold", to the ravey "Get the Message", or my favourite "No Worries", a more floaty atmospheric tune that appeared on one of the Illegal Rave compilations. But also plenty of uptempo acid trance and techno - in the case of "Province remix", a savage hardcore techno track with aggressive snares and sinister strings (plus plenty of 303).

Unfortunately the album format does mean the pressing is a touch quiet. But I really do love this album - I genuinely can't think of another release by a single artist that covers as wide a range of 90s rave music - and in an original, considered way too.

Disagree with the review below. This is a solid production, Highlighting New Decades best work from "Get The Message" To "80lb Accent (Remix)" . Demonstrating his ability to switch genres and produce Quality Acid Techno and Breakbeat Hardcore. This CD Reminds me of another underrated producer DJ EDGE who went on to produce a similar production to this. These Producer's were way ahead of there time unfortunately many of them disappeared after 1992.

Not a great album by any means and it really does go all over the place (quite messily at times), but it does have some absolute classic old skool hardcore tracks in the form of 'No Worries', 'Rough' and 'Get The Message'. 'No Worries' in particular is one of the most underated, proper underground jungle classics you're likely to hear, with an amazing vocal. I actually think it is slightly too fast, but play it pitched down a little and it is just perfect. Worth finding this release just for this track alone.
