This record is my own personal unicorn. After searching UK record shops high and low, it's nowhere to be found. Absolutely killer stuff from Mark Goddard, who I know used to roll with the Funky Junky crew back in the early 1990s. See if you can spot the (Sax) Todd Terry sample in 'The Start'.

sh*****t! saw a few mint copies of this a few years ago but thought nothing of it! because of the label design I just assumed it was early 90's hardcore fodder, how wrong I was :-(

"The Start" is one of those random classic "secret weapons" as you say. I heard LG drop this regularly at the Rex back in the day. But actually for me "Emotional" is my favorite here. Dude gets his girlfriend or whoever to do these totally homemade vocals over these burning, metallic, powerful synths and the thing just destroys. Mark Goddard, where are you now?!

Gotta thank "Funky Junky(Rav)" for copies of this record it's an absolute killer. Beautiful techno here and not a bad track on this ep at all. "Calm down" is perfect, reminds me of something "Likemind" or "B12" might have released, and most definitely up their with the both of them. Then we have "The start" which seems to be a favorite of Laurent Garnier, a very mysterious track that is just bliss to my ears.

Glad I finally have this 12" doesn't seem to turn up much, and is getting more and more sought after, but you can understand why when you hear it. Where is Mark Goddard, we need more eps like this.....

Mark Goddard...? would be nice to know if this man did ever release other materials at all. This very mysterious "Detroit" sounding EP seems to be one of Laurent Garnier's favourite oldskool secret weapon. In 2006, He played the track "The Start" during one of his "It Is What It Is" radio shows, mentionning the name & the fact that he had no idea who did the music, but insuring he had the record for more than 10 years. No need to say it's dope!
