This release is a great example of the early tendency to cross genres at the beginning stages of techno development in the early 1990s. What I mean by that is that its producer was infusing certain "pop" elements into this number - mainly the element of a memorable melody and some memorable vocals. It's far from "pop music" however and is 100% techno by all other accounts. And The Shamen did an excellent job, too. The "Shamen's 12" mix" is the best (to me) and the other mixes aren't all too bad either. One of my faves out of the earliest of techno releases and well worth the effort to find it. Listen for yourself and please, PLAY IT OUT! Your crowd will enjoy it.
