    Banging The Box would later become adapted into Back By Popular Demand by Kool Rock Steady.

      Best two tracks on here in my opinion are Tracks A2 & B2. A2 is an excellent, deep, moody, pulsating Electro track. Style reminds me of both the Electro released from USA's west coast and Miami but with a darker Detroit vibe. Section Two is a proper underground warehouse techno bleeper with funky Detroit sounding bass and uplifting pads. It's an all round winner but the two tracks mentioned are what I prefer.

      I had two or three copies of this a long while back. One was stolen by a mate's mate, the other one I sold cheap due to being desperate for cash at the time which I now regret. Seeing how much they go for now makes it worse. I have one copy left and will not be getting rid of that one for no one.

        This not from Manchester England.... But I can clearly see why Eastern Bloc records would have bought lots of copies to sell and share in this sound!

          Four very very great tunes right here!
          The electronic rhythms are top class and probably influenced alot of producers after they heard this at the time?..
          I bought this when it first got released from Passion Records, Oxford Street, London..
          Because this was 1990 and I was an Electro head this reminds me more of that genre than House (should be included in the Style section Freestyle and Electro?) ,Techno and Breakbeat (Is it breakbeat? Hmmmmmm)..
          Anyway my fave track back then and now is 100% Section Two!
          So beautiful so advanced for its time!
          Quality US electronic music at it's best ;)
          P.s. I am not a musician but the producers moniker Jupiter 6 may have derived from the synthesizer of the same name? Can anyone confirm this?
          P.p.s. This EP was pretty much a stand alone affair...Yes it has bleeps so has that connection to early Warp/Bassic/Outer Rhythm/ releases but for me that's where it stops as it goes a lot further in sound in my opinion.... it may be closer to releases from Break The Limits label.. BANGING THE BOX!

              Same graphic designer, and same publishing company as releases by the US-based artist Greyboy, who is from San Diego, would lead me to believe this is indeed a US record, despite sounding like a Manchester Bleep 'n Bass 12 right?

                Lovely 4 tracker. The "everybody dance now" vocal on Banging The Box [my fave] used to do my head in, but quite like it now!

                p.s. pretty damn sure it IS from the US...

                  Don't let the label text fool you; this 12" is in fact out of Manchester and not San Diego as the label states! I remember Eastern Bloc Records were pushing it at the time.

                  Essential bleeps n bass 3 tracker (the other track is not a bass & bleep track). For me, the best track is 'The Tracking System', but all three tracks are cool. Big tip if you're into all things bleeps n bass.

                    Section two on the flip side was a massive tune in Mnachester in the early ninties and it was heavily championed by Eastern Bloc records. It was very hard to track down at the time but well worth the effort.
