if it was possible to do a "Spinal Tap" and say that my rating goes up to 11, I would.

From Trancentral via Antiworld and Escape From Samsara to the Waterden Road squats, this one was played everywhere.

Far better and in many ways even more scene-defining than "London Acid City", which (I hate to admit) I was never really that keen on. Yes, I know this will be sacrilege to some, but at least I'm honest.

But, in my opinion, this was the turning point which really showed the world what London Acid Techno really was - and what a way to do it! Easily the best SUF up until this point, and yet there was even better still to come!

For those of us who were there, this one is one of THE defining records of 1990s London.

Two high-quality but rather different tracks: Side A is pure 303-driven squat party London acid techno, whereas AA is more Megatripolis/Samsara/Pendragon-style, slightly Goa-influenced, acid trance. But, for me, both equally as good.

Now, a message to physicists everywhere: tell your governments to f*** off, stop designing better bombs to fight their illegal wars with, and start working on a time machine instead, so I can go back in time to the best music scene ever. Thanks! :)

Well this is a definite must have! Two beautiful acid fueled tracks. This will be sure to have your neck feeling all warm and tingly once the acidic 303 tweaks kick in.

A great 303 line, and pulsing bass line make this one of the best early S.U.F tunes. I think the 'Renegade 303' b side is excellent too, with kind of a goa feel. Brings back fond, if pretty hazy, memories of the mid-ninties.
