Apart from the good sampling that was mentioned by my pre-commentators this EP is SL2's best work as far as i am concerned. All the tracks became Breakbeat Classics and were played over and over again. Of course DJs Take Control sticks out as the main track but nevertheless the rest is on the same level.

Still an outstanding work by Slipmatt and Lime! Grab a copy if you do not have one already!

it also samples BFC (Carl Craig)'s mighty "Galaxy" from the EP Evolution, 1990 (http://www.discogs.com/BFC-Evolution/master/636)

I really like the remix of 'The Noise', really idiot proof hardcore track. It may be minimal, but it's one of those tracks that's balls to the wall and rough and ready. More DJ's should have acknowledged it.

DJ'S TAKE CONTROL....actually samples 'Dope on plastic' by 'Uptown' on tommy boy records 1989, not 'Give it up' by Kool & the gang...Uptown sampled 'give it up' on his track & SL2 rippped it from Uptowns track.

At the risk of stating the obvious, Way In My Brain not only samples Wayne Smith Reggae's classic "Under Mi Sleng Teng" as stated in the notes, it uses all the elements of the song and turns it into a Hardcore classic.

Complete rip off but great tune!

Respect the original.
