Here's my 2 pence (not cents, I'm British haha) worth.
On Da Rocks is a lovely little tune.
Outrun was a techno/hard house banger back in the day. Hammered by Dave Clarke, Green Velvet and DJ Sneak so appealed to both camps. Heard this slay a club in the mid-late 90s especially if 2 copies were cut up. It's still a classic DJ tool now, it's an instant, jacking groove and I love it for that.
TB's solo tracks aren't exactly DJ friendly but that's fine, they were about capturing a vibe in the stufio and just getting the records out in '95.

I personally find the high pitched noises in the other tracks really annoying but that's just me and my tastes.
You were always shocked, surprised and delighted with these EPs cos everyone had a fave.

It is probably just me, or do you hear the prototype of what became known as late 2000’s fidget/blog house on the track ‘Roulé Boulé’?

Outun heard in the wild, played by David Flores/Truncate at Flash DC this past weekend, generating one of the peak crowd responses during the set... LOL, still relevant!

For my money, a great EP. As has been mentioned before, "What To Do" fits in well with harder techno sets. However, I'd also add Roulé Boulé to that - a fine track which still sounds great mixed in with jackin' house and techno alike. I'm not so much of a fan of Ventura/Outrun personally, but a quick glance at this comments section will tell you that I'm in a minority there. All-in-all, a solid release that still packs a punch.

Honestly, a bit hyped. I understand and appreciate the contribution of Roulé in shaping the French sound, and eventually even the sound of dance music in the late 90s (in the form of MSBWY), but this release has very little going for itself. I like "On Da Rocks" for the chilled out beat, and "Ventura" for creating the atmosphere of suspense/thrill, but other tracks are very forgettable. Same goes for Vol. 2, except for "Club Soda", in my opinion. It's hyped because it's a T-Bang production, but Trax On Da Rocks, both volumes, are Roulé's most ordinary releases.
