This was one of my favorite late night tracks when I DJ'd in the 80's at Neo Beach in New Orleans

I had always thought of the Orb's "Little Fluffy Clouds" as the ultimate headphone mindfuck song (and still do), but these tracks are right up there at that impossibly lofty level. They put to shame most of today's "I Love The '80s Strikes Back" practitioners of this sound. By the way, the place rot get both of them digitally is on the CD version(s) of From The Hip.

As far as I'm concerned the Megamix of this release is pure, proper electro. Although the vocal whisperings can be pushing it into the realms of synth-pop it's not enough to escape the electro labyrinth imo. Although I can understand why the previous reviewer's comment about it being a proto new beat is also relevant.

This can be played alongside any Afrika Bambaataa And Soul Sonic Force classics, Man Parrish, Two Sisters, Egyptian Lover, Unknown DJ, Kraftwerk, Cybotron, Model 500 etc or any other electro / electro funk / electro rap / techno electro numbers one wishes to throw at it. Absolutely timeless.

Just a few examples where sections of the track have been sampled:

Intellectial Harmonious Sanction EP 'Drift & Dream (Easy Street Records) & (R & S Records) (1991)
Joey Beltram's Direct - Project Breakdown (Allabi Records) (1990) & Joey Beltram - Fuck All You Mother Fuckers

The B side Megamix version sounds very New Beat, 4 years avant la lettre...

Those that have this record know what an amazing track this is. The remix is an electronic masterpiece; bass heavy,industrial with lush keyboards and allsorts of fuuristic sounding bleeps...The vocal side is sytnth music of the highest order.
