    Dutch DJ Ruffneck was such a fan of 'Life And Times' that he named himself and his label, Ruffneck Records, after it.

            Another top 1992 track. OK, it isn't made from the freshest of musical ingredients, but it sure as hell uses the samples very well... I like this tune because it's delirious, dark and full of heavy pulsating break beats and industrial machine like noises. The Violin section at the end makes the track sound very euphoric and is a real hands in the air kind of thing. I saw an original copy for £25.

              A really insane, spiritualized track. This music "talks" about many things like born, dead, love, hate, in personal kind of trip. Almost 20 years ago it's still powerful and creative. I don't need to use drugs to go far, far away....

                funny enough after almost 15 years someone re-used the same sample (you only live twice) in a massive hit. Robbie williams Millennium has the strings too and they sound more like the acen trip II the moon than nancy's original.
                When i heard that track play on the radio just an hour ago my 2 12" acen sleeves popped into my head.. I NEED A TURNTABLE FAST!!!!!!!!!!

                  At the top of the ultraviolet rave spectrum, you'll find both of these oldskool classic tunes... Total class and genius. Acen, big up mate. One of the most famous and influential tunes of real underground rave music at its best. Very spiritual tunes gotta agree with that and then some. Peace to all other Acen collectors.

                  ps 'Disagrees' are on crack; Hatin' ass biatches and askin' to get pimp smacked, lol.

                      Disregard the review by Sal-volatile the guy has no understanding of the Rave Scene. If he did then his review would not of been posted. This is one of the best Remixes ever of his first tune you could not get much better Acen represented Rave in all its form and glory. This takes the first version on a sharp bend to the sinister not surprising as the Rave Scene was heading directly towards that position. He cemented his reputation in Rave history by this song and "Close Your Eyes" This had more of an impact still sends a shiver down my spine quality hardcore of the finest type the Riff is awesome for that period. Even Doc Scott sampled his tracks anyone who thinks this track is week go away and listen to mainstream !!
