I disagree that Autoplex's unreleased stuff as being old school hardcore mentioned below. It's full on heavy underground Belgian warehouse styled electronic synthesized heavy techno with a UK twist. Not hardcore. Very techno influenced hardcore at the very least. No cheese, chipmunks, toytown or piano hands-in-the-air with the overuse of samples in earshot. I know music styles are subjective, but in this case it's pretty well evident and very distinct from the UK sample based hardcore of the day.

Anyway. Yes I agree that it's a traversty that their early material wasn't picked up for official release by any labels. People with a more serious/discerning taste for rave music have really missed out with their creative, multi-layered productions.

Saw these lads loads of times during 90 & 91 and their tracks were superb old school hardcore everywhere they went The Eclipse, Amnesia House and others they were the highlight of the party it was only a matter of time before they were picked up we thought and signed then when the what can only be described as plastic raving after their first ep What evil lurks were in the charts with a rave tune and a very cheesy one at that fortunately I still have those tapes with Autoplex's early music on them and can only cal it a travesty. They would have been big on the dance scene.

Definitely agree with the previous reviewer regarding this outfit. Some of their 1991 releases are absolute gems. It's diabolical how they weren't picked up by a major underground label at the time. Actually, it's also very surprising why they didn't self release any of these 1991 productions.

Some of the tracks they did either rival or exceed many of the techno tracks of the time in creativity. Full of power, vigour, darkness, mysticism, energy. Well produced, multi-layered, hard hitting etc

If these guys would of been picked up by the likes of R&S or Music Man at the time they would have been very well known! I had the good fortune to witness their live set at Mickey Lynas's Amnesia House extravaganza at Donnington Park in December 91. "Belgian" style techno from Coventry that was fucking incredible.
