Oh the memories of being at a rave in 1994 in LA hearing these tracks loud, i personally actually miss that open mindedness of those times. Perhaps not much credit is due to the innovation that was being pumped out by early breakbeat bigbeat triphop type experimenters, we almost kinda forget that that sorta thing has always been part of the whole. I felt then, and still do now, that great things can come from any genre, or from any inbetween space of genres, that is as long as the intentions are in the right place, which of course ultimately at the end of the day only those pushing the sound know in their heart themselves.

Chemical Beats samples the bassline of Meat Beat Manifesto - God O.D. (1988).

I remember Kris Needs DJing as warm up for Primal Scream (on the Rocks tour) and playing Chemical Beats, totally floored me. Still does the job.

I was at a rave in '94 where the acid Big Beat stomper "Chemical Beats" from this EP was played three times in the span of about 4 hours, and the crowd went apeshit for it every time. And this was in a region where people generally didn't care for breaks. That's how freaking huge it was. It demands being played loud, and rewards you for it. By today's standards, it's maybe a little too simplistic and over-the-top with its acid lead line and snare rolls, but at the time, it was an instant floor-filler. The rest of the record is really good, too, but for most people, it's all about "Chemical Beats". The version here is slightly longer than on the 1995 album.

The first reviewer is right. Her Jazz was a 'stop what you're doing what in the honour of Jeebus is this?' moment when I was 15, hearing it on a Mixmag Darren Emerson mix. It took me years to track it down on vinyl (thank you Hard to Find Records). Psychotic, mind-shattering, bowel-juddering trippy techno. It still sounds utterly amazing today. Incredible to think these guys so early in their career were coming up with this stuff in 1993.
