I don’t think that this tune needs may introductions and revived the ACID sound that had drifted away a couple of years before, all be it in a beefed up more European way. A really great tune with its pounding kick intro, simplistic sounding percussion and then just building layer upon layer with that bubbling acid sound and then hard acid sounds over the top fading in and out into a crescendo and breakdown, then building right back up again. It use to send clubbers wild, as it really stood out in its day and still great to hear today.

Sorry to dis, but this track ruined acid house for me for quite a long time.
When this came out I was still DJing the Chicago acid of a few years before, but after this cynically-arranged acid-trance euro-monster came out, nobody wanted to hear the original tunes anymore : ( And enormous breakdowns and snare-rushes became ubiquitous. Put me right off clubbing altogether.

I totally agree with the review above,at a time when everyone who had a drum machine was trying there best to put together a 12" with there cheetah drum machines and Roland 303s or 909s and when we all drove to certain car parks for after hours raves and partys in warehouses.When this tune came on it was a sure fire winner..
You cant fault the build up and it set me off on my tour to find venues that played this style(leeds and manchester)..
I remember carl cox playing this at the Angels in Burnley and dragging out the build up by doubling it up on the decks for ages and the Lads on the dancefloor going mental waiting for the Bass to come back in.Cause lets face it its a lads tune girls loved piano the lads loved 303s and twisted ruff beats back then...
It was where i was at anyway...

This represented an interesting turn in what is commonly referred to as dance music.

In the UK Acid House had come and gone in the late 80's to be surplanted by House, Italo House, Hip House, Garage, Techno, Rave, Bleep, Hardcore Techno and a myriad of other styles.
It was a period of hyper intensity where almost every new record seemed to spin off into a whole new genre and the sense of a tangible developing artform both musically and technologically was iminent in the form of Jungle Techno.

Yet here was Hardfloor releasing what could only be described as a retro acid house record, but one of such epic proportions that it was actually better than any other acid house record ever made, proving that sometimes you have to go back to the phuture...

For me this tune is one of the best acid tunes ever in EDM history.
Hardfloor has done so many timeless records but this one is their best work if you ask me.
The build up is simply a masterpeice and the break is massive.
No matter how many years will pass by this song will always be in my heart...

I can still exactly remember the first time I heard that tune: It was in February 1993 and I was listening every week to the Steve Mason Experience on BFBS. Back that time the UK-Dance-Charts were really great with some serious Underground Records in there. And this was the first release on Harthouse UK in association with Rising High and it made it from nowhere to Number 2 on the UK-dance charts. I had never heard something like that before because a lot of popular records from the UK were Breakbeat/Hardcore or some really deep progressive stuff. Acid wasn't very big that time. I was really blown away: It is very slow (about 125 bpm), totally minimal but it builds and builds, getting more and more intense and then at about 8 minutes it comes to a real musical orgasm! I also love the ending with those nice bubbling acid sounds, slightly dying. Strangely enough, one of my best friends at that time was into Punk-Rock, but he also loved this track and everytime we meet I put on that record after a few beers. A true masterpiece of a record and in my opinion a really influential tune. If you love this record check out the David Holmes Remix of "Like a motorway" from Saint Etienne or "Wheels of motion" from Exit-EEE.

I was suprised to see that this record has not had any comment. Dificult to do justice to in writing. And Like Nasty Habits 'Shadow Boxing', or Awsome 3s 'Don't go' this track might be described as reprosenting both a genre and a point in time but at the same time defies both.
Put simply Hardtrance Acperience would be a healthy contender in a 'biggest and best acid house tunes ever made' compitition.
