Original Mix With Notes is still a massive tune. Possibly Eon and J.Saul Kane's biggest in terms of impact. Expansive, gritty, rough, decidedly futuristic, heavy, dark, trippy, psychedelic, dramatic, incessant. In my opinion, it directly captures 1980s electro with the early '90s burgeoning techno and rave scene with eloquent expertise. The edits are also razor sharp on every version.

1990 was an epic and under appreciated year for all things techno and Spice sits right up there with the best of them. Don't be fooled by the November 1990 release date on this submission by the way. This was hammered from the tail-end of the summer / early Autumn of 1990 - the White Label pressings were anyway. The raves erupted when this was played and so did the pirate radio stations' airwaves and so did those pagers!

All mixes are worth playing at different stages in a set. The 1991 remix is not as great as this original version, but it's certainly decent enough and incorporates borrowed elements of all the mixes already here. Music for the mind as well as severe dancefloor devastation.

What is Eon's best release? Is it my favourite Eon track? If I was forced at gunpoint to choose. Probably. But admittedly I can ask myself the same question on any given day, and I might pick another record from the hat. Infinity (spooky epic darkness) ? Light Colour Sound? The B-Side of Inner Mind? Fear The Mindkiller? His later tracks on the well known album? For me there'll all freakishly and originally great.

banging tune, still play it now from time to time. This was so powerful when it came out, ripping the sound system at the raves !.
Watch the Dune movie and you will see where the artwork was "borrowed" from and samples

In the early 90's there was an album side 'DJ Mix' with this and other songs. It would play about 20 or more minutes. Does anyone remember what album that was?

Probably no song represents the beginning of the Rave movement here in the states as much this song and probably the 808 State tracks. An amazing flow of sounds and great samples.

I heard a drum and bass remix of this song around the early 2000s I think. I have been looking for it ever since. Does anyone have any ideas?

I lost this record a couple of years ago so I can't look at the credits/liner notes on it but I recently heard Love Action by Human League. It seems there are samples from it on Spice. Anyone else catch that?

The J. Saul Kane version sounds very much like tech-step drum and bass except this is 1990 not 1995!
I think this beat was used on most tracks of that era, very much ahead of its time before producers tried different non formulaic things.
No surprise that this was the same producer behind you see me in 3d - bomb the bass.
