for me "drop it" is the tune, has Kawai K1 synth sound all over it (used by LFO), deep bass , dark stomping tune.
at the time of writing this is going for £0.75 get it !

An old project from the KLUBBHEADS from a time they made STRAIGHT IN YA FACE 'HARDCORE' under the name Trance Mission and Sound Of Now.

The A side is utter trash but the flip brings you 'Rave Extravaganza', a belter offa tune with a hard bassline, DANCE MUTHAFUCKER sample and a whistle and RAISE YA HAND IN THE AIR rave stabs, COMPLETE MAYHEM!

'Drop It' starts with a D-Shake sounding intro with only crickets (those tjirping night bugs LOL) and then the bassline starts pumpin', time to seek shelter when that MASSIVE 909 bass kick drops . . . add a 'DANCE WITH THE SPEAKER TILL YOU HEAR IT BLOW' sample, a synth stab that makes you move even if ya dead and you guessed it already: FIND THIS TUNE!
