Side A was a big old pirate radio track in 1990. Don't get me wrong I quite like side B too as far as mashups go, as I'm not exactly a massive fan of them. But side A is the main track here.

First spun on pirate radio station Fantasy FM, and if I'm not mistaken by the producer and DJ Rhythm Doctor himself who happened to broadcast on that particular station along with his contemporaries DJ Hype, Anton, DJ Spice, Shadowfax, M&M, EZ-O, Larry Jazz, Bobby Jazz, DJ Krome, DJ Tricks etc. Everyone cained it anyway. I think it eventually even featured on David Rodigan's reggae show on a mainstream legal station due to its dub roots, even prior to Kiss 100.0FM getting their licence.

It's a prime example of a Reggae dub acid house crossover. I've always liked the original dub tune as I was aware of it via some of my older mates and a dub reggae loving cousin. That's a classic in its own right. Reworked its acid tinged elements over rootsy dub, it was quite a chilled BUT driving trippy groove and appealed to many different followers.

The acid sample mentioned in the release notes might've been taken from Arthur Baker's remixed classic but if it was, it's a second hand sample as it's originally from Funtopia ‎- Beautiful People / Let Us Rise
