In the runout matrix no.s on both sides, "MASTERDISK" is stamped, all other characters are hand-etched. Under "MASTERDISK" on side A, there is a hard-to-decipher etched "signature".

Dispite of having (HM) printed on the center labels which would usually indicate Hauppauge Record Manufacturing Ltd. as the pressing plant, this record was actually pressed at Specialty Records Corporation. Hauppauge stopped pressing vinyl records sometime in 1989 and this record was apparently pressed sometime after Hauppauge had stopped pressing records, and actually pressed at Specialty using the leftover center labels already printed with the (HM) code for a Hauppauge pressing.

Great bassline. This was always coupled with It Takes Two since they're both ~ 115 BPM.

One of the few Hip-House tracks I can remember not from the Chicago labels (DJ International, Trax).

I'd like to know what happened to these guys. Such an awesome cut, one album, then they disappear.

Heard this when it came out back in 88/89, no one knew the artist at the time, thought it was King Sun. Finally found out it was Twin Hype, such an excellent track, and great samples! ' The Monkees, Raw Silk, Area code 615, Herman Kelly, Martin circus, public enemy, modern romance, and probably more!!
