"Mentasm" (Original Mix) Is a monster if a tune and one of the true classics of the Belgium Techno sound of the early 90's. As soon as it drops with the huge synth rift that today is so recognizable as its been sampled so many times, followed by the driving beats and then dropping into that deep deep bassline, and building right back up again the track is relentless, deep, dark & driving that simply rocked very where it was played ! A true master piece from Joey Beltram. I never get tired of listening to this track and brings back so many happy memories & still sounds amazing.

I simply could not stop playing the original mix for years ! This is the original Hoover sample used by every Gabber record

Mind Games by Quest on sound pack records used the same sample..More on a Nu groove vein but still pretty out there.

Beltram & Mundo mix reminds me of the magical magic mushy season of 1991 Coming On Strong

This is not that crappy term called the hoover sound.... This is Joey's SOUND! No one has ever replicated this exact sound ever! Powerful track with a B Boy velocity! That bass too! Think JUNGLE TECHNO or thank TECHNO jungle it's all Mind To Mind . P.s. If you mix this with Set Up System- fairy Dust. You have then two sounds which never properly got replicated! Now stop reading my warblings and listen ;)

To me Energy Flash and Mentasm are very similar to each other they both were released on the same era 1989-1991 . The materials used in that era were the same i agree some DJ/artists that were privileged enough to have new-pro materials were very rare in that time thus Joey Beltram is a great artist from it's time yes but sadly his pride was very short 1989-1995 .

Both of the the music Energy Flash & Mentasm were on ever clubs in Europa and were always used in mixing many time together because they were easy to mix in .....same as those techno/minimal techno from Construct Rhythm Records and Fine Audio Records were very easy to mix together since they used the similar sounds , riffs, 303, etc..

Today in 2018 Energy Flash and Mentasm has dated badly ......maybe because i have listened to it too much or because there were other better tracks in that same era .

According to Renaat of R & S Records speaking on the Belgian music documentary The Sound Of Belgium below this paragraph. Paraphrasing the said interviewee a week later he makes Mentasm (after Energy Flash). And already widely known Mentasm was subsequently officially released in 1991. If that indeed is accurate, it is quite remarkable how revolutionary this sound was whatever one thinks of it, especially if Mentasm really was recorded in 1990. Can't comment about when Joey Beltram and Mundo Muzique recorded Mind To Mind, but it is equally an eternal trip heavy mind altering classic whenever it was made and takes most of its expression from deeper Nu Groove Records origins.

'Mind To Mind' is very early trance ... so early that the genre of trance even didn't exist ;-) ... a must have for the trance-lovers who want to dig deep in the genre of trance ...
