Takes me back to 6am at a random rave on a housing estate, somewhere in East London, whole crowd bouncing in unison while some biker in leathers was MCing like a maniac on the mic... absolute belter of a track, and an absolutely mental night/morning. Always remember the cab driver home being called Rudy Number 8 lol

Never understood why Access is that famous. It is extremely simple, repetitive, and lacking creativity.

They finished the track in 2 hours by the way, which is not surprising at all.

we should play this track when the aliens eventually land on this planet and make contact with us

Here's some useless trivia: the 303 comes in at 3:03.
You can tell that to your new pal at 7 in the morning while you're trying to chew the inside of your cheek.

Time has not been kind to a lot of music of this era, but the simplicity and energy of Access puts it firmly in the techno hall of fame.

Thanks Misjah, cheers Tim

This one remains timeless for those that were there and for future generations who will come back round to it

Yeah, we know, Access is a great track, we get it. But how awesome is extravaganza!? It builds in a way that reminds me of Red 3 from Dave Clarke, which came out around the same time. Incredible dancefloor-smashing energy.

God dam, this is one of the best dance songs on earth. Just a few come on par, like "O.T. Quartet - Hold That Sucker Down"...

It's very difficult now to capture in words the devastating effect Access had on the worlds dancefloors at the time. Although plenty decent acid tracks had been released prior to 95, the 303 sound had taken a breather after the onslaught of the late 80's & early 90's and was then more familiar within the goa/hardtrance sounds.
The hard dance scene was absolutely huge in the uk due to the previous 7 years of innovation and as that had started to become stale the scene was screaming out for a fresh path.
Then Access Arrived!!!
Nothing had been heard quite like this and it was like a nod to the past with a wink to the future, combining a mixture of the best acid tweaking of days gone by but with the strength and power of very early 90's gabba in a new hardtrance kinda style, very fresh at the time.
The minute that kickdrum and stab broke through a track in the mix, you could feel it like a tremor literally shaking and pounding the club, testing the sound system to it's max like it was invented to play this track. Whatever was played before it became irrellevant, whatever was played after could not compete. Simply it caused crowds to go absolutely wild resulting in Total Dancefloor Annihilation!!! Exactly what Misjah and Tim intended it to do, i'm sure. X-Trax Rocks!!!

Seriously now, Access is one of the most inspiring pieces of electronic music - ever! Starting off with a ridiculously hard and fast drum kick accompanied by an equally menacing bass line, it stops only for a brief moment a few minutes into the track, and then following a crescendo of screaming 303s, it transforms into a high octane acid techno burner, never looking back once it really takes off!
Fairly simple in all its greatness, but it's perfectly pitched, with a classic build up, which is just turgid with desire to be unleashed upon the party crowd. It still occasionally slips into modern DJ sets, and believe me, it has lost zero power and its devastating effect is still fully in tact. Truly a classic, and quite probably the best track to have ever been recorded under the X-Trax imprint, although Temple Of Acid is my own personal favorite.
My only complaint with this otherwise awesome release is the feeble choice of tracks on the flip side. Switch is a track which goes nowhere, but samples an anti Vietnam war speech courtesy of Martin Luther King, which is cool to mix with a more intense sounding tune. Extravaganza is all but extravagant... Just a dull six and a half minutes of music, but you won't even notice you've been listening to anything else but the title track. Trust me, if you still haven't, whenever and wherever might it be that you see a CD or a 12" with DJ Misjah & DJ Tim- Access written on it, don't waste time and count your dimes, just grace yourself with a copy. Your music collection deserves one.
