The EP starts off with a beatless, ominous intro track. Then the well known frenchcore beat enters in the A2 track. Nice tempo, but not too much going on in this track in my opinion. Good filler for a set, but not a dancefloor killer
The A3 has a lot more tempo changes, a french spoken sample, but a bit of a long beatless break at the end of the track.

The B-side starts off a bit slower, more towards the Dutch hardcore at that time (1998), but still with the distinguishing Radium sound to it.
B2 is the sequel to the intro track, and sounds a bit more like Micropoint to me, with some well placed industrial sounds and bleeps.
To finish this EP, 'Me and my Clone' has somewhat the same feeling as the B1 track to it: A bit slower, but still unmistakenly Radium.

All being said, not a real banger on this release, but still a solid EP with some tracks that are quite good to mix in an oldschool frenchcore set.

On B1 tracks, Radium Use a sample from french newspaper media tv has a prime time :

" La police francaise epinglée par le conseil de l'europe dans un rapport du comité européen contre la torture qui denonce des cas de mauvais traitements . . . "

" Il faut savoir que ces violences ont fait 36 morts et 2000 blessés pour la seule année 97 ".
