        Banging tune, massive up north and all round the country in 91/92. Pianos strings rave stabs breaks and drops the rhythm is hot.

            I'm Coming Hardcore was one of my holy grail tracks of the early nineties - Goosebumpy intro, Incredible breakbeats, ace piano and great sampling of Bizz Nizz's we're gonna catch you and Tyree's I'm comin hardcore. Agree with symopryce that the remixes were not up to scratch. This is the one you want, shame the pressing is a bit quiet. Sonic Control is a great hardcore tune too!

              Where do you begin with a track as seminally important as this?

              Released in 1991, this is now one of the all time classic piano tracks. This would sound a cliche ordinarily; but this is no ordinary tune.

              The beauty of this track, as with many others from this time, is it's inherent simplicity. Sweeping strings, a fabulously pounding breakbeat, and the most memorable piano riff combine to make for one of the greatest piano rave tunes of all time. It is one of those record where the bass, break, piano and sample complement one another perfectly. No need to do anything else. 10/10

              It was remixed mercilessly of course, all of which completely failed to capture the magic of the original. The biggest crime was to replace the breakbeat with a house 4/4 kick, which ruins the flow completely. Avoid the remixes like a plague!
