Anyone know where the pad around the minute and a half mark is sampled from? It sounds so familiar- kind of reminds me of the one in LaTour's- Blue.

A mate plays this, never knew what it was until now. Or that it went for so much. Thought it was the snowball at first. Crazy how these kinds of tunes are going for absurd amounts now, I can't help but feel the price is not a true and accurate representation of how much it's worth, more the fact that these kind of tunes where only 1 or 2 copies are available are in demand as vinyl is making its 'comeback' and people just wanna stock up on rare wax regardless of whether they're decent tunes or not, more about just owning the tracks. I buy all my vinyl to play, which would include playing out but would be wary about taking tunes out that cost hundreds! Saying that, both sides of this are pretty sick. Love the disturbing way the shining's vocal has been used, especially with the contrasting euphoric, slightly melancholy / reflective pad super-imposed on top half-way through. That is a serious pad, one which I don't recall hearing elsewhere which makes this all the more unique. Drum work on the b-side is most notable, otherwise a standardish Jungle tune for the time. Big oop!

The A side 'Shinning' samples dialogue from the horror film of the same name "Wendy... Darling... Light of my Life" etc. which adds a nice sinister edge to the track. The track ends in a weird locked groove of Shelly Duvall's character (Wendy Torrance) screaming "Stay away from me". This track might not be quite as ruffneck as Lewi's more Ragga Jungle styled output (Possibly down to the collaboration with The Imposter) but it's a solid and interesting track and the film samples will catch listeners unawares and make them ponder the origin. 'Tranquility' is much less interesting in my book, there's some gurgling and atmospheric synths and the odd 'baby' vocal sample but it's a smooth and straight forward production with little to grab your attention.
