      Amazing track. First heard on Renaissance volume 1, but still sounds great. Heard it drop in the Sub Club few years back.

      I managed to pick it up cheaper years ago on one of those legit or not legit Renaissance EP samplers - it had Remake and virtualismo on it too I think - good value!

        Sounds amazing still all these years 26 and counting

        that lush scratch :) an art form forgotten these days

          If you are interested where the vocal 'I Can't Take It...' sample is taken from you will find it on a single refrain in the acappella version of Peech Boys' 'Don't Make Me Wait' from the early 1980's In fact you will spot loads of samples used in tracks you will recognise from this acappela ! For me this Rhythm Invention track is a highlight from the early Warp back catalogue. Nice modular techno

            The cold pounding breakbeat identify Chronoclasm out of the crowd, there is an amazing drive to it.

            But I doubt in figuring out which track I like most of the EP because Can't Take It is an oldschool club classic aswell.
            With two of such great tracks, this is a winning record anyway.

              'Chronoclasm' is a superb breaks track, years ahead of its time and certainly wouldn't sound out of place in a current Breakbeat set. It has an Edgy, quite dark feel, but without doubt some of the crispest Beats I've ever heard!

                Forget the 'Can't Take It' track and head straight to the 'Chronoclasm' a sasha dark moody anthem from his renaissance days
