    The stuttering sample loop on Tortuga (BAD - SLD) was taken from Gangsters Of House - Ow! (Acid By The Nano Second)

      Oasis stole this track and created "Columbia". Three more words.

        Got to say I am gobsmacked at the price this record is currently commanding, as nice a tune it is my copy rarely gets played. I consider myself lucky to have a nm copy

          Main mix to go for on this 12" is "Tortuga (Bad SLD)" huge tune back in its day that got hammered, its got an infectious driving rhythm with a happy uplifting vibe, and then the break down drops with those synths that use to blow the roof off, and breaks right down to build you right back up again. Fantastic track, I have a mix tape by Daz Willott Entropy where I think he drops the vocals of The Jason Load Experience* Featuring Iyona "Mainline '90 (Original Vocal)" over the top works a treat.

            All the people into their old skool if you don`t have it already this is the one you need to get pretty quickly, even more so if your one of those who has to have the original. As you can see (as of 06/012016) there are four for sale, it hasn`t been re-issued (the original, as far as i know) and the only way you can get it (apart from the original) is by a bootleg. More importantly is this, within the record there are long quiet parts in the track and as time moves on there are going to be less and less "decent" copies around. And i expect even some of the vg+ copies out there will be a little crackly in those quiet parts. If you do have an original "decent" copy consider yourself one of the lucky ones.

              Why they didn't include BAD SLD on the re-release is beyond me.

                  The OUT - SLD mix of this is one of those tunes that sends shivers down my spine every time I hear it. From the second it kicks in, to the break at about 2m 5s, right up to the end this is nothing but class. Evoking memories of nights out at clubs in the early nineties and making me want to go out to a club and hear this again, this is a must have in my opinion for any lover of the genre.

                      Just one mix of note to write about here but what a mix it is.Track 1 BAD SLD a pure slice of Italian rave magic, from the first note to the last beat 4.34 seconds of sheer class.Evokes great memories of long car convoys and dancing in fields in the summer of 91. The italians ruled the airwaves at this time and with tracks like this its not hard to see why. A truly genre defining moment.
