Fun fact: Some people still think to this day that Porter & Flamman are actually Technohead themselves, lol. Anyway, their follow up to the I Wanna Be A Hippy Remix was yet again a success, maybe not so much in other countries like Germany but #1 in Netherlands speaks for it. Yes, it was Happy Hardcore, but that they could also fill the true hardcore needs can be heard on this LP.

Used & Abused is my favorite on this LP, really nice vocals from Status IV - You Ain't Really Down.

E.H.B.O. stands for Eerste hulp bij ongevallen, it means First Aid basically. It's the darkest gabber track on this LP, actually very similar to Used & Abused, but faster, with more distortion and mainly only hard rhythm elements. The end is nice, probably from a movie: "The world is coming to an end..." (Thanks morthen for info about the movie)

The vocal at the end of E.H.B.O. is sampled from the movie Vibrations. This movie came out in 1996 according to IMDB but must have been released a year earlier for Flamman & Abraxas to be able to sample it.

Used And Abused is one of the few happy hardcore tracks i will openly admit to loving to this day still. E.H.B.O. is a timeless hardcore techno banger, up there with the finest Dutch classics.

A hidden gem on this record is the B2 track. It takes that excellent trademark punchy kickdrum and uses it to devastating effect in a fantastic 200 bpm hardcore techno track. This classic track is featured in countless Producer sets from 1995 onwards, and was an influence on some of his early tracks like "Get Retarded". Very ahead of it's time - and worth getting this record for alone. (Although it has to be said that Used & Abused is equally good!)

Have You Ever Been Mellow?, a great tune that sounds very similar to the melody from TechnoHeads:- "I wanna be a hippy". When happy hardcore was first becoming popular.

The star of the show here though in my opinion is the Used & Abused track. A really hardcore banging track with a truly memorable hard trance build up in the first couple of minutes. The irregular machine gun like bass line during the buildup climax is really spectacular the first couple of times you hear it.

M-Zone used this part of the track in quite a few of this sets.

This vinyl is indeed popular and with good reason too.
