    Also, the main Hoover riff is literally the Alpha Juno from Mentasm just sampled & looped in reverse. (Play it backwards, you’ll be like “wait, what?”) It bangs just as hard though!

      Does anyone have any info whatsoever on this producer? Quantum Leap is an absolute banger, and feels like it should be up there with the most iconic hardcore tunes from 91-92, but I only just heard it for the first time in 2023. Instantly one of my favorite rave tunes that captures that hectic, “pitch black warehouse with a single strobelight” energy that I’m always chasing. Clearly this one got some love from some huge DJs back in the day, but the artist name and the track are pretty much ungooglable, with pages and pages of Scott Bakula related hits with a sprinkling reggae related stuff every so often. Any insight into this guy/what else they’ve done musically(if anything) would be very appreciated!

      Also, the B-side is complete unhinged insanity. Most times I listen to it I can’t make it all the way through, but I know if I heard it out at a sweaty basement rave, I’d 100% lose my shit.

        Man track 2 is amazing just so much to play with, about 12 tunes in one. Outstandingly mental.

          Ridiculous early hardcore rave - hoovers galore on A-side. Crazy B-side "Energy" (?). The kind of raw, rule-breaking warehouse music I was seeking at the time. This particular record went next level - too much so on the flipside - but it didn't matter. This was for when you wanted people to go completely bonkers lol.

            Quantum Leap is a great track filled with mentasm samples and landlord I like it keyboards. I discovered it from the Grooverider @ Helter Skelter - The Funhouse 1991 mix. I recently remade that mix and I wanted the actual record (not the repress which I already had) so that I could hear the B side. Well.. I kind of wish I suck with the repress because the B side here, "Untitled" is a mess. I think it would have been nice if it was made in the studio properly. It was not! Its a noisy wall of distorted noise. Its way nosier then the track its trying to be, "Stabbed I the Back". Funny I feel stabbed in the back for buying this. Well, if you don't have Quantum Leap already, then get it for that, that cut is fine.

              I remember back in 1991 (yes 91) my friend DJ Frenzy gave me this saying "It's way too noisy for me but you'll love it!" I did instantly. Because it was a whit label (well kinda an off cream color) there were no details. So for the b side, I wrote The Mindfucker! It's one twisted journey at just over 9 minutes long. The breakbeats are solid, the noise shredding in ferocity and the mysterious ethereal sound always throws me. I also remember taking this record up to Passion Records in London and playing it to Ray Stanley (one half of D.O.P.E,) and all he said was "Whoaaa what the 'hell' is this?!!!! The other side is a belter in a more UK Techno kind of way. My only gripe is the mastering! It's utter shit! I dunno what Naz Aka Naz was on? Compared to all the other 786 Approved records this one was way at the end of the queue when it came to 'sound' management! Oh well, we can't have it all eh. Also Track A samples:
              Vocal from Jocelyn Brown - Love's Gonna Get You. Is true but probably was sampled from Moby - "Go" "Yeeeeaaaaah!".
