One of the most unique and best hard house records, though it's more Hard NRG really (Discogs really ought to add some genre names), so hard that it makes a lot of Millennium-era "hard" house sound like pop music :)

Great description from the previous reviewer, I can't add much more.

The only thing which perhaps spoils this 12" is the sound quality - I've owned three different copies of this (two purchased new, around the time of its release) and all had a bit of surface noise all the way through, especially on "Narcan". If this was a more minimal or trancier track, with melodic synths in the breakdowns, it would be a real problem. However, as this record mostly consists of distorted hoover madness, it's not too troublesome. I wonder if I was just unlucky, or if others have had similar experiences with the vinyl?

Panik has a brilliant groove, progression and attention to detail and as such avoids falling into the formulaic clichés that so many hard house tracks of this era suffer from.

The production is top notch, as layers upon layers of unique noises build towards the breakdown. Once the track kicks back in with an array of mad Mentasm noises and that room shaking kick you'll be transported back to those blurry raves of yesteryear.

John Newell may sadly no longer be with us, but this record is one of the few hard house tunes I've held onto.
