    i have on tape the 8 track version of this all time classic it starts off with top strings then goes into slow beat then half way through when he says push the button it goes into fast beat with hand claps with loads of echo beat is booming then goes back to slow beats it sound like there using a dead crap casio keybord but never the less its a shocker and its by the original and best i got it years ago and if u go on city beat records and look at underground electro vol 3 the automan unrealesed version i have all the unrealesed stuff like jam on it with the rap they cut out of the original 12 thanks

      This is an important piece for me-- I recall buying NOS sealed copies of this circa 1996 in New York State and gifting them out to prized friends. The "serious" side of Newcleus is one that only recently has gotten much attention, and this is one of those tracks. This track is the essence of the cold, anxious view of an oppressively technological future that only electro can communicate. Crushing beats, densely programmed bass hits, and that tense feeling of dread over polyrhythms-- it's an amazing mix, topped off by the bassy vocals contrasting with the vocoder vocals. One of my all-time favorites and as important (perhaps moreso?) as any other Newcleus track. And this was reportedly recorded before Planet Rock was released.

      "Who will suffer, who will survive?... It's up to the computers. Push The Button." Essential electro.
