      If this EP isn't the single most demented UK hardcore release from the early 90s, then it's certainly in close competition. It follows the "kitchen sink" approach beloved by many oldskool producers - cramming each track full of disparate samples, riffs and ideas, with a fairly loose approach to structure and a total disregard for subtlety.

      Whether that's a criticism or not really depends on your taste - for me it certainly isn't, it's what makes hardcore so exciting. What really makes this EP stand out is the tempo - every track must be at least 170bpm, quicker than almost any other UK release of the time. The drums are excellent too - nicely chopped for maximum impact, without sounding too skittery like some faster breakbeat tunes can - and in classic hardcore style, there are a few ultra-chipmunked vocals in the mix as well. Most of the tracks tend towards the happy side of things, but with the uplifting moments balanced out with plenty of ravey stabs; the exception being "Hellraiser", which is a bit darker. It's hard to pick a favourite, although the start of "Such a Feeling" stands out - some dramatic horns with hysterical laughter looped over the top - sets the tone for the whole EP.

      More than anything this EP really captures the amphetamine-fuelled, youthful excitement of this music. It might be a bit much for some but if you enjoy the more chaotic side of hardcore it's well worth picking up. Although you will probably have to pitch it down for mixing!
