Speedbase no doubt. The A side is no strings attached amphetamine soaked techno with a quirky and mental bass line, jarringly jolting the listener with discordant and repellent sequences, creating an overall feel so abhorrent that it stirs up positive antagonism, if that makes any sense whatsoever. Basically, these are two nervous techno bangers that present uneasiness as a desired state of being.

As if that wasn't enough, B1 drops one of the most intense, bend your aorta and piss acid down your left and right ventricle type of techno compositions that immediately goes up there with the finest stuff Lawrence Dunster has ever crafted, along with tunes like Squat Rock recorded as Shaft Punk and Crushed released under the Immersion moniker. This one has virtually no beginning, mid section, ending, build up - you name it, but I doubt you'll notice. The combination of Lawrie's London madness and CLR's monotonous and rock-like mechanical approach to techno music is brought to perfection here. It's like you took the numbers from the A side and asked yourself what could possibly your machines do in order to up the intensity. You want to find out? Well then, go buy the vinyl, I'm not going to be the one to spoil all the fun. All I can say is that these tunes are more wicked and tweaked than a fair 80% of everything ever released on the label.
Great stuff, if this is your thing naturally, as it tends to wear a lot of people out.
