The main stab sound comes from 16bit with changing minds

A pure classic and it still works for me. The release was a mixture of the Technotronic/Snap influence to bring it to a more techno/hardcore oriented scene with hip house influences, the bleepy sounds of techno and the more breakbeat felt beats.

The man with the masterplan is basically more on the then upcoming breakbeat/uk hardcore side with more rap vocals integrated, very dancefloor oriented.

well, i was a fan of techno from the very beginning - but i can´t hear this very early records from the beginning years nowaday... pretty awful samples, stupid vocals (not this release) and lousy drum loops.
today i can understand, that a lot of people found this new music style really annoying.
there are some great releases from the early 90s, like Force Mass Motions-5th stone of the sun, that even ´work´today - but this record is a pain in the a.. today

Can someone shed some light on which mixes are on this release with respect to later releases? Specifically, are any of the mixes the same as the "Quadrophonia (Remix Instrumental)" that appears on Streetbeats SB 5.005-9?

For good or bad; this record was massive and would not go away until eventually. It found its way into stadium playlist anthems and jock jams.
A patient record that took at least a year from initial launch. To launching a sound with its second life through licensing and re-licensing. One of the early hit records of the then emerging Belgian Techno sound which, along with things like Anesthesia (also by Abbeloos and Foort), Senses, etc broke the dead horse that was the by then painful new beat sound and buried it.

And this from the guys that later made freaky disco/drum workouts via their Holographic label.

The main sound of "Quadrophonia" is a catchy stab.
The rest is a mixture quite innovative of Rap,Breakbeat,Techno,Soul...
Like Lucien Foort said in a MTV interview in 1990 :
"We try to make a different kind of music with all sorts of aspects soul, hip hop, techno, new beat, everything added together"...
Surprisingly this track was a hit even if it was ahead of it's time, because there were no sounds like that on tv or radio at the time.The video clip is also memorable with this particular wears ambience.
"Quadrophonia" was one of the records that launched the Hardcore-Breakbeat era.
