Ah the birds chirping in the A2 "Sometimes I Feel Like". Its such a summertime jam. This is straight up festival techno. And the acid bassline in track A3 "Nation 2 Nation", f*ck!! It destroys me everytime. This is timeless and unrivaled jazz techno!! :0)
This UR release gives a hint of the mighty things to come: 'Sometimes I Feel Like' and 'Nation2Nation' predict some of the emotions evoked by the URs seminal Galaxy2Galaxy release, whilst the World2World adds the energy. It’s important to recognize the similarities between the series of releases that used this naming format - there was a strong vein of innovation of the UR sound throughout them – both generated and given cohesion by Mike Bank’s creativity.
I love the Nation2Nation EP for what it is, with its undeniable ‘Mad Mike’ sound, live sax, Roland TB303 moments, and as with each of the releases in this series it defines a moment in the musical history of the Resistance’s ‘sound of the underground.’
