Excellent and varied classic compilation. But I've chosen to concentrate on the two D.S. Building Contractors tracks, which are strictly exclusive to this title.

Two of Paul Hartnoll's (one half of Orbital's) earliest tracks. One For The Burglar is a really tight production for 1988. More on the electro influenced techno tip than house music or acid. However, there's a downfall - the use of childish and cheesy ass Thunderbirds dialogue from an episode. Absolutely ridiculous. It's a shame as it's a funky little warehouse number musically. If one can place the corny samples at the back of the soundscape, it can be enjoyed fully to the maximum. Better still reissue the bloody thing as a pure instrumental mix.

Depth Charge on the other hand is much more underground in sound. One of the roughest sounding tracks Paul Hartnoll's been involved in. Rasping unintelligible vocoder which sounds like it might have been sampled from Hashim's Al-Naafiysh or Jonzun Crew's Pack Jam but I'm not sure it is. Raw Electro styled programmed beat and dirty acid. Funky as hell. Not house music in the strictest sense though. Perfect for dry ice, smoke, laser and strobe in a massive warehouse scenario. Badly needs to be pressed on 12" plastic already.

D.S. Building Contractors - One For The Burglar lifts its samples from "Trapped in the Sky", the first episode of Thunderbirds (a 60's TV series).

I'm no DJ and for most of my teens bought most of my music on cassette tape rather than vinyl. FFRR released these comps for most of the late 80's and there's normally an awful lot to recommmend on them. From exclusive tracks from DS Building contractors (a pre Orbital Phil and Paul Hartnoll)and Bang The Party, to decent acid by Silicon Chip and Jamie Principle.

One to look out for if you see it on vinyl or tape.
