    Bonus disc Notice omar santana sounds bad with distortion in the last 3 minutes. I requested to a friend to confirm if his copy came with same problem and the answer was positive. Other side too but with less distortion.

      This says 4 x vinyl. I thought there were only 6x vinyl and 5x vinyl versions?

        Probably the most relevant hardcore repress yet, and respect to KF for doing an unlimited run so nobody misses out and prices don’t go mental on Cogs.

        Strangely, most of these tunes were hugely underplayed at the time, but huge, huge music of the era.

        The depth of production on all of the old Acen stuff is epic, just so unique. I’ve got all the originals, but still had to have this.

        So many memories to these tunes, raves, bedrooms, cars, fields, those times will never be matched.

        What’s your name, where you from, what ya done 😉

        This music still makes me rush.

          Back in 1992, I exchanged rave tapes with friends at school. One such tape introduced me to Acen’s Trip the Moon series. The Trip series and Life & Crimes sounded completely revolutionary to me at the time - never was a bus journey so much fun! I especially loved the musicality of Acen’s tracks. The collage of samples was distinctive and unique, avoiding the tropes of the era.

          Fast forward 28 years, and it was with a mixture of excitement and trepidation that I heard Kniteforce were releasing this box set with new mixes. After all, is it even possible to transpose such a classic release into 2020 without losing the excitement and freshness everyone felt back in the day?

          Firstly, the artist lineup on this set is unbelievable. Secondly, nearly all the remixes are incredibly good. Thirdly, the new Acen material exceeded all my expectations. This is easily his best work since the early 90s.

          Beginning with the 2092 Acen editions, classifying them as updates or remixes would be a disservice. These are new tracks with some respectful nods to the originals. Life & Crimes 2092 contrasts the rough with the smooth, replacing the original breakdown with a Moments In Love sample and a Bini & Martini vocal. It’s tough and beautifully dreamy at the same time. ‘Rings Around The Moon’ uses a Sting vocal to great effect over bubbling 303s and ascending synths. It’s fun to hear new samples used in such a carefree manner, rather than retreading old ground. Acen’s other updates are equally enjoyable. You can hear the playful fun in these tracks - they don’t take themselves too seriously, but are creatively ‘out there’ and perfectly blend new ideas with classic sounds.

          Onto the remix artists. Pete Cannon throws the kitchen sink at Life & Crimes. It has that hectic cut-up Amiga mod-tracker vibe Brain & Slammin Vinyl pioneered. The amen is a barrage of lo-fi filth. It’s a bit like being hit over the head with an array of cooking utensils. And I mean that in a good way. NRG delivers a respectful remix of Trip 2, with some nifty edits to the Rolling Stones piano and fun new stab sections. Scott Brown does his jolly, bouncy mid 90s thing, which you’ll either love or hate, and Part 3 is the perfect choice for him to tackle if you like his sound. Another great choice is assigning Coco Bryce to the Obsessed remix. He tidies up the original nicely, which sounded a bit loose from a timing perspective to my ears. In contrast, dBridge produces one of the most boring remixes of Obsessed imaginable, which does little for me creatively. Can’t win them all, but that’s the diversity on offer here!

          My favourite remix on the set is possibly Luna-C’s remix of Trip To The Moon. This is a genuinely beautiful reimaging of the track. The new breakdowns are spot on and capture the melancholy, mysterious vibe of the original. It’s quite restrained for a Luna-C track, and I think it's all the better for it. A bit of a shame it’s relegated to the limited edition vinyl and more vinyl junkies won’t get to enjoy it.

          The bonus CD contains a barrage of remixes from up and coming artists. I particularly enjoyed the Mannik remix, which is completely mental and ravey. There’s something for everyone on this CD as the styles are relatively diverse.

          On a nerdy note, it’s satisfying that the Omar Santana remix is included, as the original had become an incredibly expensive purchase in recent years. The Dubplate mix is a remake, rather than the original, which was presumably lost from the Production House vaults. And for the trainspotters, the included mixes of Part 1 and 2 are the later versions that utilise replayed orchestral sections, as opposed to the earlier promo mixes that were pulled due to sample clearance issues.

          Overall, this box set is a brilliant purchase, even if you own the originals. There’s over 2 hours of music just on the vinyl alone. Whilst I don’t think many oldskool releases could command this price tag and creatively spawn such a wonderful array of remixes, its commercial success will surely result in more box sets for 2021. There’s already another Acen set and an NRG set announced… let’s hope the level of quality can be maintained to justify spending close to £100 a pop!

            Awesome release. Great to have the originals remastered, as well as the super-elusive dubplate (as heard on KissFM in 1992, Steve Jackson maybe?) and the Omar Santana remix. Plenty of fresh new takes here too and Acen has revisited the themes himself with the 2092 versions.
