Three full-on rave/ hardcore remixes on this release. Unfortunately, there is not much left of the classic original. Maybe this is the reason why this record never found a proper release...

Indispensable independent release by Rhythim is Rhythim. And whereas 'Nude Photo' takes the credit on this release as well as the seminal 'Strings Of Life', I am speaking about the less popular track found on this release called 'The Dance'. Detroit and its story has been told and like all legendary tales, those who have paid attention know more then the average person tuning in.

Detroit Techno was the underdog to Chicago House when Trax was releasing stuff by Adonis & Phuture. Being an underground DJ made the roots of techno seem distant, and for me I was blind or better still deaf to the brilliant phuturisms Derrick May had to offer. I was first put up on these tracks via 'Jack Trax' U.K. compilations and it would not be until 1989 where I got the taste of 10,000+ people dancing to 'Strings Of Life' to really understand.

And here we have 'The Dance'. Simple. Detroit's way of expressing "No Way Back" by Adonis. A chirpy bassline, string, bell and choppy 909 drum programming. Those that bought records in 1989, 1990 know that bassline, as Altern 8, Shut Up & Dance (on "Derrick Went Mad") began to use that same bass over breakbeat. Here we have an untapped gem. Let the story be told, as this is not the obvious choice. Transmat truly was the Icon of its era.

The remixes on this Kool Kat pressing are much better than the original Nude Photo which was released on Transmat. Both mixes are more energetic and the BPM's are slightly higher. True 1988 style acid house!!!

Until the end of last year, this was an ultra rare record; copies were sold for €40 and I once heard that even Derrick May did not have a copy of this anymore. Luckily, the record was re-pressed in October 2004!

Now this brings back memories. 1988, graduation year. I ended up dj'ing almost all of the grad parties. Anyway, I played this e-p often at the grad parties, and of course througout Chicagoland at the sets I played. The cut I most rocked was "Sinister". I just listened to an old tape I had recorded a mix on where I went from our Chicago Jams to a set of Detroit Techno. I went from "Uses Me" to "Illusion" to "the Chase" (by Juan Atkins) to"R-tyme" to "SINISTER". Almost brought a tear to my eyes. Man I miss the atmosphere those tracks were able to create. The new Music is good, but the classics are immortal.
