referencing Don't Be So Serious, 12", WRR12 015

The basic track backing stab / melody here on all mixes is (I'm positive the more I listen to it) a very-slightly altered version of the main riff pattern from T-99's 'Anasthasia', just using a different synth...not badly done either, nice frentic UK underground rave track...mixes well with other tuff tunes like 'Tingler' 'Rave The Rhythm' etc from the same period. The A side overlays the 2 'Belgian-sound' track mixes with female vocals & cuts, the B side mixes use more Ragga & dub rave style production.
An early (rave) use of the female vocals from the '88 House classic 'Seduction' (aka the 'Dont Be So F***Ing Serious' female vox shout more famously sampled later on Eruptions 'All You B**tards' (IMP 045).
