      NIGHT IN MOTION and for a teaser suiting this track ritmo dynamicos CALINDA (not to much coz of tuning and such but nice).. to me it's more like keeping a secondary playlist keeping some reference.

          ''Night In Motion (Original Mix)'' pure cheesy track, UK piano happy style, not my cup of tea. Never heard this track back in the day, and only in recent years has become a classic, dropping in every new oldskool set by UK dj's, along with the even more cheesy UK early piano hardcore rave anthems from 1991-1992, that killed the scene.
          However the best and only well known version of this track from back in time, is on b-side ''Battle Plan Remix'' which is much more darker and industrial and it is the authentic version of this track, real European techno sound from 1991, not the UK wannabe rave style. The B2 ''Drum And Bass Dub'' is a more stripped down version of the ''Battle Plan'' track, and it is equally fantastic.
          So this is a great 12'' just for the b-side mixes.

            It's September 2022 and over 1000 Discogs members still want this 12". That says everything, isn't it? Stands out of it's time!

              This was my first straight electronic piece of vinyl I ever bought. I in fact bought it by accident thinking it was 'CubikOlympic808State'. It did however share something with Cubik which made it 'acceptable' in my mind to 'admit' that I was listening to electronic music (all my friends were into punk and industrial at the time), a guitar like crunchy synth as the main 'chorus'. I'm now more than happy that I got this brilliant 12" as I think it is indeed diverse, ranging from full on whistle inducing hands in the air mayhem, to the really very dark EBM or new-beat ish B sides, which are full of bleeps and menacing fat basslines. The synth solo toward's the end of 'Nick's Relocated Remix' is really something special, it sounds very apocalyptic and atmospheric, I always thought it of it as a soundtrack to Terminator 2's opening battle sequences. Overall a great 12". I still wish I had maybe bought one of the other 12"'s I saw that day (at normal 'just released' price): XLT-17 - Prodigy-What Evil Lurks...

                This is an absolute belter of a track. Its a tale of 2 riffs; one part piano driven house that samples something very familiar although i cant think what it is, then after the "PARTY TIME" sample a full on techno assault with a slamming groove that would and would still have dancefloors in a frenzy today.

                Theres a lot to be said for some of these old rave tracks, the production may not be top notch, but the love that went into these tracks is evident - made by the ravers for the ravers.

                  Cubic 22's "Night In Motion" figures among the most important XL Recordings releases all time and took its place as a true anthem on all the ravers minds from the early nineties to the old schoolers from nowadays.
                  According to the highest English-rave tradition, you have an absolutely fantastic piano melodies after the violins on the drop - a landmark of that era (on the other side, you don't see much pianos or violin melodies on a single Techno tune this days - the purists won't admit it). The most shameful side of it lies on the fact that Techno and Breakbeats could (at that time, on the early nineties) promenade on the same walkside, and now it seems it just have to be 'straight' Techno or that 'Nu School Breaks').
                  Amazing experiences were felt by the Brazilian DJ Marky when he watched Carl Cox playing it in England recently - the crowd's reaction got him so deep that he reminded of his old days during his legendary residencies at Sound Factory Penha and Toco - when he changed the minds of a whole generation with "Night In Motion" on his repertories.
                  The "Party Time!" sample comes from the 'J.R. Funk & The Love Machine - Feel Good, Party Time' Disco classic, from 1980.
