Dance floor history. Not only do you get "Nightwriters" and "Let the Music Use you", you also get a classic piece of 1992 breakbeat hardcore. One for the collection.

Comments from Slipmatt regarding this release (from his website)

"Our next release on Awesome was DJs Take Control / Way In My Brain. This literally sold out from Mo’s Music Machine, our new distributor, in under an hour!

Wow… the phone didn’t stop ringing, and the record was going mental. I remember giving a copy to Pete Tong at John Digweed’s event called Storm on Hastings Pier in the summer of 1991. I was on the decks straight after Pete and played DJs Take Control as my first tune, and then gave him my copy before he left. He went on to play it for 10 weeks in a row on his Radio 1 show and we subsequently hit the pop charts at number 11. We had taken a deal with XL Recordings and our whole world changed. "
