I Once Read In An Interview That " Life's Just So " Was One Of The Best Hardcore Tracks Ever Made...I Wouldn't Argue With That.

Can anyone tell me why you can't find any of the world dance sets from 92 anywhere? Also sets from 93. There only seems to be the 94 ones

This release is possibly one of the best tunes on the Homegrown label. Smashed by all the hardcore dj's in 93-94.

For me its all about the track 'do it now'on the b side. All though this particular sample 'do it now' had a lot of use around the time, the track is a perfect blend between dark and happy with those dark synth bass sections and those uplifting pianos. This track truly takes you on a ride with all the highs and lows you need. Amazing track

On the same side is 'dancing in the shadows' not a very well thought out tune. Has no particular theme at all just a bunch of synths and samples. Not my cup of tea. Ok track

On the a side is ' lifes just so'. This track is very good also making good use of the sample ' musics so wonderful'. And those weird sketchy timestretched beats on the intro do it for me. This is a very good crossover track from hardcore to jungle.

Very good track

So, 2 blinding tracks. This is a must buy for any true hardcore collector. Well thats if you are willing to pay £20-30+ for a copy. Well worth it in my opinion....
