Inspired on an original tune named "Video Clash" (made by Marshall Jefferson according to his personal statement) - released and edited by Lil' Louis, this record by Tyree was conceived as "Video Crash" with Rodney Bakerr. It came to stay on the Underground, infesting the DJ's cases, and it inspired several other artists since 1988.

Those amazing synthesizer lines made by a four time repeated note followed by another creating a seductive interval composed the main hypnotic loop of "Video Crash" - its underground atmosphere was consolidated by thunderous effects surrounding, something incredibly powerful on the dancefloors. These main synth notes were sampled about four years later by 808 State & UB40 on "One In Ten", which gives us an idea of the importance this tune had back then.

"Video Crash" was included on compilations such as "Mazzo Presents Manic Monday" (1994), "Mix-Up Vol. 3 Featuring Ken Ishii" (1996) and also got a Christian Scott Remix on DMC's Remix Culture 187 (1998).

Tyree declared on an interview years later about "Video Crash" that he did that cause he heard that Lil' Louis took it from Marshall Jefferson's original version of "Video Clash", and he wanted to do one that was better than his, so he did "Video Crash". Now, if you notice, Mike Dunn did something similar called "Magic Feet", all based on that same concept.

HaHa ! Freeze vs Lil Louis, not for everybody but for a late night Jackhead it rocks even if it's crude. But I guess thats what Tyree wanted to sounds like. Rockin dirty house music.
