    The tape has stood the test of time, this 12" is criminally cheap on Discogs.

      In 1990 you were a happy camper to find records like this. I still love the sound from this era and '91 - things changed a lot by 92. A specific moment in time in underground dance. Snap it up - this is still proper warehouse music that bangs - due to proper production and mastering - which makes all the difference. Orbital Ways has an Adonis-style acid-era bassline that stands out among the Belgian vibes on other cuts - killer gem.

        All about The Tape. Such a good riff. . . .the intro was taken off Apocalypse Now.

          A quite nice release but with no techno anthems in here, like "Magic Orchestra" of b-sides II, or the excellent techno anthems "Moribund" and "Moral soundabuse" of b-sides IV (the best volume of b-sides series) but here the tracks have a more new-beatish feel, more of a past 1988-1989 warehouse attitude, still very enjoyable tracks. By the way i prefer the Remix of the "Tape" track by miles, than the original version here. That remix refined the tune imo.

                This EP contains 'The Tape' which is one of my fave FDW tracks. It starts with a sample from Apocalypse now and follows with a fantastic spiralling loop which charachterises the track. Great use of a saxophone sample (which i usually hate in dance tracks) and rumbling bassline. More on the house tip rather than the big rave noises he likes to use. Every time i heard this one played out it was always played from the beginning unmixed. Still played by myself as it has dated very well.
