Around 1990-1992 Derrick May was living in Amsterdam and so, as a big fan, I heard him play a couple of dozen times during that period.

He always carried this big stack of 10" acetates with him. My favorite was this weird but hard breakbeat record.

All of these tracks sounded amazing but you never knew when - and if!!! - that material got a proper release. The funny thing is, that if you would ask him about it, he would never know what it was, since the acetates all had white labels with no info...

Some time later, I went to my favorite recordstore to check out the latest stuff, including that latest KMS release. And to very much to my surprise and delight the KMS was the Derrick May acetate mystery track!!!

It was called "Shock Therapy" and it was produced by Anthony Shakir! "Shock Therapy" starts off a bit weird, until that monster breakbeat comes in, the thriving kickdrum and that distorted bass-line :)

You can consider this to be one of Anthony Shakir's harder outings to date, maybe only that "5% Solution" on Metroplex comes close.

This release embarks the last of the KMS "Hardcore Techno and Breakbeat period"-records. (Thank God!)
