This 1995 pressing can be identified by the L-45967 & L-45967 X matrix# etched in the runout area.
Track A1 kicks it with pitched up samples of Cutty Ranks - Pon Pause from the LP Cutty Ranks - The Stopper
over mid tempo breakbeats and is relatively short in length (aprox. 3 min).
Track A2 covers a lot of ground. The track mainly centers around the Public Enemy - Rebel Without A Pause (Vocal Mix)
beat (also used in Madonna - Justify My Love (William Orbit Remix)
). The track gets hop'n by using multiple samples from Jungle Brothers - I'll House You
track. About midway through the track takes a left turn and goes for atmospheric keyboard and vocal samples building to the break. The break is of course massive with the sample Nina Simone - Here Comes The Sun
. This is all still riding over the Public Enemy beat and then comes the famous Disco 3
- Human Beatbox (Brrrr Stick Em' Ha Ha Ha Stick Em') sample just for good measure.
Track B1 is high bpm reggae influenced number. With various long samples of chants etc. The track outro's by cutting the bpm's in half and riding it downtempo over two samples from hip hop artists Above The Law - Murder Rap B/W Another Execution
Track B2 gets ya smiling with jazz piano and horn samples over breakbeat. In the middle of the track things heat up by using what is now known as the opening drum loop and laugh sample that became the foundation of the Bassbin Twins remix of Electroliners - Loose Caboose
Also exists without matrix number, only the inscription: "Bassbin Twins A/B". This was the first pressing from 1992.
The labels on this version are stamped on both sides, not printed. There are only 300 copies.
As a final foot note there are two different pressings where the A side and B side center labels are switched. However, the tracks themselves are identical.
