Everything That These Two Producers Went About Was And Still Is Superb, Faultless Hardcore..

For those into that dinstinctive style of proper, underground uk hardcore that exudes the twisted, darker side of things with a large dose of techno and 303 influences, then don't look too far because this release has it all. Ok, there's a piano found here and there but never moving into the boundaries of being overground. Hard, gritty and dirty. For me, the best release on this label by a good few miles.

CLASSIC, CLASSIC rave EP, A side's 'Total Recall' - WOW what a wicked nonstop peak-of-the-night-type mashup 'avin it tune this is...using classic rave piano stabs, "Tingler" hoovers, Brainstorm's "Fractal" nutty Juno riffs (sped up) & just as you think there's a breakdown it kicks in again & throws the crowd into more madness - pure white glove whistle-posse tunage!
B1 'I Need Your Love ' sounds more like old Rhythm Section (think MK13, Comin On Strong etc) - wicked stab patterns & darker synths over a nice chop break. B2 'Never Felt This Way Before', definately the darkest track on here, nice grinders, twisted synths with the odd piano stab section thrown in to balance the rave element...caned loads by Top Buzz, Easygroove etc. Wicked, wicked EP.

Total Recall has 2 b 1 of the most over the top early hardcore tracks I can think of. The production is so primitive yet intentional that the lo-fi dirty bass line that rumbles ominously throughout this track sounds
like it was intentionally doubled up
and slightly out of sync. Then about 2/3rds of the way through the mayhem
a 303 kicks in some acid that is some
serious business and jumps right out
of your speakers like a mad serial killer on the loose. The other tracks
are ok as well but not like this.
This track was way ahead of it's time
and has aged quite well so far. In fact the more I play this track the more I like it. Absolutely wicked!!!

'I need your love' track is the reason you should buy this record. The sound, structure and vocals are so crisp and well produced, even though it's 20 years old! This one is a definite addition to any collection and would rock a dance floor anywhere in the world…….

I remember being at Central Park in Portsmouth when Carl Cox played all three of the tracks on this EP during the night, I think he may have had two copies and mixed them into each other. I can't quite remember it was a messy night!
