    although im not much of a hardcore techno fan, this ep is an exception, all the tracks are top notch tunes that never fail to impress me. 10/10 ep!!!

      I'm surprised no one has mentioned this, but this did not come out in '93, this was RELEASED in '92.

      Most likely end of June, could've been August, I seriously doubt as late as September.

      I know, because I remember spinning Force Format and Esthisis in front of thousands of people.

      While others loved it, Panic sounded too cheesy for me, never liked it.

      And Sub Sonix was too nosebleed, though it does get better once the breakdown kicks in.

      Someone needs to fix it to read 1992, 'cause it definitely wasn't 1993.

        'Feel the panic' vocal in Panic is sampled from The Badman Is Robin by UK hip hop crew Hijack

          'Panic' samples the opening stab from The Prodigy's 'Fire' Sunrise version.

            Esthisis when it gets to the stab part..rocking, played a set where i just looped that stab and added a beat, people went mad. Very clever bloke Mike Wells was, up there with Ramos,Supreme,SS etc for the late 92, early 93 breakbeat hardcore days of thunder. All the tracks on this EP are great but i myself love a good stab.

              This record is a MUST HAVE for any Old Skool Hardcore fan. Most people would remember the fun and very energetic Panic however the other 3 tracks are also pure class, well constructed and produced Techno tunes. Esthisis is more on the serious side but packed full of energy. Sub Sonix is a driving Acid tune with a beautiful synth and vocal drop. Force Format is a little more laid back but a pleasurable acid punctuated Techno Breakbeat tune. All tunes still sound really great today. Quality always stands the test of time.

                Its all about Panic for me. Never tire of this track. Proper Belter of a track with some of my favourite rave stabs and some great Hip Hop Vox sampling

                      Very good Ep, i think probably the best Force Mass released. Sub Sonix is the most well known track but Esthisis is a tune!. All are very good and defo part of the sounds of that time. Esthisis!.... All good tunes though, Panic samples Economix.
