Breakbeat Hardcore isn't my first choice but listened to this EP literally 2 minutes ago and was blown away. The energy is timeless.

The user that claims that you had to be there to understand shouldn't speak for everyone. I was there and thought that this release by Rhythm Section was and still is overrated. Don't get me wrong, it's a classic no doubt. I always preferred Rhythm Section's other releases and various pseudonyms. Atomic E.P. Check Out The Bass Bass, MK-Sensory Deception, Circuit Breaker (this one is an exception in as far as piano classics are concerned, love this one). Newton, Rennie P & Richie T, Ellis Dee etc. This and Midsummers Madness EP is a bit too vocal for me and really has hijacked the cheese factory. I also don't like the shitty ragga vocals on 'Is This Real' and the overuse of pianos. There's nothing in old hardcore which puts me off as much as Mcing and ragga vocals. Especially non-sampled live vocals made for the release itself. Totally unnecessary. Bar a few exceptions such as Project One's "Smokin' Chalice" & "A Few Dollars More", Genaside II's "Narra Mind", The Ragga Twins early stuff and a few others.

This and Midsummer Madness are certainly of their more pop sounding releases imo.

A wonderful and beautifully produced EP that showcases the mash-up of different musical styles that characterised early hardcore rave. 'Feel the Rhythm' is the best-known track on the EP and is rightly considered a classic. All four tracks are strong but my favourite is the haunting closing number 'Emotion'.

"emotion" has to be one of the best tunes of 91 taken from one of the best eps from that year or any year

I cant believe nobody has written a review of this amazing 4 track EP.
B1 - 128 bpm nice ragga style vibe with the mc chanting away and lovely woman vocal line running through. Crisp simple but nice amen breaks and bass.
B2 - 128bpm very similair amen break, this time with the typical 91 style synth stabs and lovely "all it takes is a little emotion" woman vocal line. A few other samples and different sections to this track, works very well.
A1 - 128bpm starts with classic 91 stabs, and imo this is one of the best tracks of 1991. The "listen to the bassline talk" vocal line followed by very nice bassline riff, coupled with the synth stabs makes for a great vibe. Lots of different sections keep interest, and lots of other small vocal samples appear throughout the track.
A2 - 128bpm starts with amazing "you are the new new generation" vocal line, and nice mellow synth riff. This for me is the best tune on the EP, quality all the way through. Nice beats, nice bassline, plenty of different sections & drops to keep interest but its the actual whole overall vibe of the track that works so well, and probably one of the best oldskool hardcore tunes of all time.
Overall this is a must-have EP for any oldskool hardcore fan.
