A MUST for an underground Techno DJ of the good ol' times :-P

Were you to invest money in one, only one Player release, your funds would be well placed on the third installment of the series. For no other reason but Respect Yourself. The tune kicks off with a sample from NYC's MC Jeru The Damaja's tune Ya Playin' Yaself. Giving a chin check to all the posers, actors, and what not, the vocal part is dropped acapella. The intro is followed by typically chunky beats provided by the Nuccle / Humphries combo. By far one of the most effective and memorable combinations of rugged mid nineties hip hop lyricism and tough techno beats. It's also the tune that the remainder of the label's output is measured against.

Pumping percussion, chopped up vocal excerpts and a beefed up bass line for maximum dance floor impact. As already mentioned by a fellow review here, this was used as the opening tune to many a techno sets back in its day... Just sit back and imagine. Lasers, smoke filled room, hundreds await for the needle to drop, and then, suddenly, some random dude rapping about keeping it real. What?

Drop the bass. The room is yours.

A really good release, vocal rap lines over hard pumping techno, rocks!
