I first heard Vicious Cicles on Keoki's All Mixed Up cd in 1995. Spririt Level mix. I first started going to warehouse raves in 1995. This is very much the music that was played out in the west coast during those club years. Fond memories in the desert and abandoned warehouses in southern california. Long time ago...

One of those tunes that still never fails to raise a smile. This is an immense track from beginning to end. The dark, stabbing, minimal beginning builds to a first breakdown and then make sure you've got reinforced party pants on because it's bouncy gurning idiocy all the way.
