For those into oldschool Hardcore Rave, stick with the Technological Mix.

The Surprise mix goes soft, and the Swingbeat mix is hip hop.

Scream is an ok b-side, but nothing special.

what a heavy tune back in the day! early hardcore. Early Gabber was surely influenced by this track !

Break (Swingbeat Mix)....
Crazy! I used to loathe the Swing Beat sound...
Too happy in a sickly way!...
But this tune has got my attention...
Its got so much flavour!
Samples include Donald Byrd- I know you got soul, The B Boys- 2,3 break, Skinny Boys, Bob James= Take me to the mardi gra, The Amen break, That riff that Big Daddy Kane sampled, Commodores- Assembly line and Neneh Cherry!.....
I'm not sure where the swing beat 2,3 break came from...Probably Teddy Riley at a wild guess lol...
This is a solid B-Boy & Girl TRACK to head nod, windmill, freeze , pop and lock to!...

Is it Hardcore, is it Rave, is it Breakbeat, who cares, this tunes makes you move as a dog covered with flees!

Dope tune by the man Michel de Hey from a time he made stuff he now denies :)

Best mix of Break is the Technological Mix.
Fast 'breakbeat' sounding track with the 2 3 BREAK and the screaming female I WANT MORE sample.
Fat bassline and a nasty analogue synth stab to complete the madness, WHAT A RUSH!

on the flip you'll find the 'bonus' track Scream that never got the credit it deserves.
A nice deep dark techno track that ends too soon.
Simple 909 drum pattern, deep bassline and a good example that 'simple' samples can create nice sounds . . .
