        Who gives a shit what the samples were or what there influences were or where the video was taken.. This is an amazing track that stood out from the rest at the time and still does.

          "Activ 8" was a big hardcore tune with crossover success as Altern 8 saw with a lot of there releases, its am packed full of samples as you can see from the notes, that are worked to great effect to create a monster of a tune, with plenty of mixes to chose from ! Even with a cheeky "NHS Isol 8" Remix. But there's another cracking track on this 12" "Indulge" reminds me more of their previous releases under Nexus 21, packed full of samples but has a very different vibe. Heavily influenced by Neil Howard's "Indulge" especially as is samples the piano giving it a similar feel, still sounds great & worth a listen.

                internet info.

                Whose voice says “Top one, nice one, get sorted?”

                Top one, nice one, get sorted was by the record label boss’s daughter who was three years old at the time, the label dubbed her Mc Crazy Claire and we even had magazines asking if she was recording more material.
