some tunes should be played from the very start and not beat mixed in - this is one of them.
5 stars, not for complexity of musical ideas but for its simplicity and impact on the dance floor
as moorie says below in his review...rave on

Still sends a shiver down the spine when hearing this classic and then a rush : )

I've wanted to leave a comment on this track for a very long time, but i could never think of the words to express just how much of a difference this tune has made on my life. I was probably only 13 when i first heard it, the second track on the first house mix i ever listened to, and here i am 27 years later still obsessed with dance music. More powerful than i could possibly have imagined...

Hypnotik - Double U is basically the same tune...same release year and both Together and the Italian producers of Hypnotik are claiming to have written it. Way too similar for them to have come up with the same bass, pads, piano and very similar synth bleeps.
Rave on!

Forever going to be one of my all time favourite old skool tunes of this era, nothing short of large large large tune. the piano riff is amazingly epic. i could listen to this track 24/7, shame music evolves with sadness not greatness.

They don't come much bigger than this, an absolutely massive tune, that rocked many a dance floor
Big string into (that seems to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up), crowd noise, piano and vocal samples all used to full effect to create a truly great track.
Big Hacienda track & defiantly one for any old school fan.

The working title of the tune was actually "Can You Feel The Beat", but they had went to the Hardcore Uproar party in Blackburn to record the samples of crowd noise for the track. The promoter asked if they could name the tune after the party, Jonathan agreed (Suddi didn't) and the tune came out as Hardcore Uproar. The "This is the sound of" sample comes from a jingle on Stu Allan's radio show from that time.

Some more info - Mark Hall played the piano solo in the track.The track was then recorded in Spirit Studios at a cost of £125 (that's what the session cost). According to Suddi, Sasha was the first DJ to play it out.

Top ol' school rave tune! Love the piano. Still sounds great today without the pills!

am proud to say I was at the illegal rave put on by "hardcore uproar" one of the many they put on all around Lancashire and probably further afield, a great set of lads at a place called nelson where the actual crowd noise was sampled what a superb night right up until about 8am when the police decided to raid the warehouse with riot shields and bloody big sticks to beat up anybody who couldn't get out of their way, the DJ was playing strawberry fields by candi flip at the time, this turned out to be the last big illegal rave as maggies operation alkali came into full effect to combat the growing acid house culture at the time, the true end of the era. would love to be able to get hold of footage of the night inside the warehouse if anybody reading this has some, there were plenty of people there with hand held cameras that night, ps I hope the girl with the young baby got out ok when the police came in, apparently she lived right across the road from the warehouse and unsurprisingly was being kept awake all night by the noise which could be heard about 3 miles away by all accounts, the only people who caused any violence at all were the police who decided it was" clubbing" time, around 10,000 people coming down nice and peacefully after a great night, then being batton charged by a bunch of thugs in uniforms was a truly terrifying experience as this was not long after the Hillsborough tradgedy, this event could so easily have turned out much worse, thankfully it didn't.

Always reminds me of the Hac. If my memory serves me, it was Nick Arrojo in residence on Saturday nights when this was big. It used to get played there every Saturday night & take the roof off, right up until it was finally picked up for release by ffrr. I never heard it played there again after that!

The original White Label (i.e. before ffrr finally picked it up) doesn't appear to be in the Discogs database (at the time of me writing this). Copies used to change hands for silly money, so as a poor student at the time I had to wait for the ffrr release to come out!

Over 20 years later it's really interesting to look at that list being namechecked on the sleeve & consider just how diverse their respective scenes became only a year or so later.
