Ephemerol is like 5 years ahead of its time.What a riff, wow!

One of the first tunes I remember hearing back in 92 from early mix tapes. Got smashed by a lot of the big djs. Groove used to hammer it - Ephemerol, what a monster, hard to believe this was made 25 years ago. Even harder to believe it was made by one of the guys from basement jaxx!! Some very, very early D&B!

There's something weird about this tune, and I can't put my finger on quite what it is. Get the same kind of feeling from it that I did when I first heard Squash by Total Science. I should love Ephemorol but there's one or 2 elements that just don't sit right for me and it becomes quite unnerving to listen to lol. I would still play it, can see it going down a storm in the right sets but it's a bit on the pricey side to say the least. I actually found out the name from listening to Uncle Dugs interviewing Slimzee, who gives a list of his top 10 hardcore tunes. This one was instantly recognisable but I didn't realise it was this Tune, strange how it escaped me for so long. Prefer it to the remix as well

I really do not understand how the reviewer below can compare or recommend "Forbidden Zone" with this one. I'm not saying that one is better than the other, not by any means.

It's just that they're as different as light and day and have no similarities whatsoever. Completely different style of tune, arrangement, sounds and samples used, rhythms, everything. It's like saying, if you're a vegan you'll also eat meat. Can't see the logic.

How does anyone arrive to the conclusion that if one likes this track that they'd automatically like Forbidden Zone by default? Life can be a right old curiosity at times haha :-)

This is a BADASS song and if you like this one you will like Forbidden Zone by Forbidden Zone

What a tune - played repeatedly at outdoor Eclipse, Ely in Cambridgeshire, back in the day - what a night !

Trivia: "Ephemerol" is the name of the drug in the Cronenberg classic movie "Scanners".

Ephemerol has to be the dodgiest piece of music I've ever heard!
I love the dirty distorted synth sound... Also the breakdown part at the end with the chimes and the string sounds make this tune really stand out. Real underground hardcore that's as dodgy as you like.
