This is such a simple concept, but boy did it rock the warehouses and pirate radio airwaves back in the day. The Long Club Adub is the best one to play as it lasts long enough for more patient mixing and ample opportunities to switch and cut into other equally rough tracks. Totally raw as were many of Todd Terry's early productions but the constant groove and fading in of hypnotic effects and stab refrains keeps you fixated. A defining track from the original era of rave in my opinion.

Classic release that still sounds as good as it did the day it was first released. The Club Mix is the best of the mixes, and received tons of radio play in Chicago, New York, etc. back in the day. Since then the track has been sampled hundreds of times, laying the foundations for labels like User Records and DJs like Jeff Mills and Ben Sims. I like this better than anything I have heard that has sampled it, and highly recommend this release. The mastering is clean and there is a lot of subtle detail in the percussion. I suggest rocking doubles of this track if you really want to get funky. It's a fairly short track but is widely available and reasonably priced.
