"Mentasm" (Original Mix) Is a monster if a tune and one of the true classics of the Belgium Techno sound of the early 90's. As soon as it drops with the huge synth rift that today is so recognizable as its been sampled so many times, followed by the driving beats and then dropping into that deep deep bassline, and building right back up again the track is relentless, deep, dark & driving that simply rocked very where it was played ! A true master piece from Joey Beltram. I never get tired of listening to this track and brings back so many happy memories & still sounds amazing.

I simply could not stop playing the original mix for years ! This is the original Hoover sample used by every Gabber record

Mind Games by Quest on sound pack records used the same sample..More on a Nu groove vein but still pretty out there.

Mind Games (A Cappella) by Quest, which could be mostly said as a pre-project for Master C & J with Liz Torres, is the original sources of the vocal samples on the track 'Mind To Mind' actually.

Beltram & Mundo mix reminds me of the magical magic mushy season of 1991 Coming On Strong

This is not that crappy term called the hoover sound.... This is Joey's SOUND! No one has ever replicated this exact sound ever! Powerful track with a B Boy velocity! That bass too! Think JUNGLE TECHNO or thank TECHNO jungle it's all Mind To Mind . P.s. If you mix this with Set Up System- fairy Dust. You have then two sounds which never properly got replicated! Now stop reading my warblings and listen ;)

To me Energy Flash and Mentasm are very similar to each other they both were released on the same era 1989-1991 . The materials used in that era were the same i agree some DJ/artists that were privileged enough to have new-pro materials were very rare in that time thus Joey Beltram is a great artist from it's time yes but sadly his pride was very short 1989-1995 .

Both of the the music Energy Flash & Mentasm were on ever clubs in Europa and were always used in mixing many time together because they were easy to mix in .....same as those techno/minimal techno from Construct Rhythm Records and Fine Audio Records were very easy to mix together since they used the similar sounds , riffs, 303, etc..

Today in 2018 Energy Flash and Mentasm has dated badly ......maybe because i have listened to it too much or because there were other better tracks in that same era .

Yes, I agree plus The Calling is another belter of a Beltram track! Joey's Riot too BUT that's just my musically subjective opinion! ;)

Each to there owns I guess but Mentasm for me still sends shivers through my brain... But I agree on Energy Flash. I didn't really warm to it back then and 1000% do not now! To cheesy quaver, bom bom bom bom repetitions for me snore zzz ;)
