The "Ian Pooley Mix" of "Rok Da House" is the track that Jeff Mills immortalised on his amazing "Live At The Liquid Room" mix CD of 1995. It's testament to Mills' abilities at the time to shock a crowd into disbelief with his rapid-fire, hectic mixing style, that people have actually gone out and acquired this record off the back of that CD. Few other DJs could make such a boring track sound so good.

In truth, the few seconds that Mills forced into his set on that night in Tokyo are the only few worth listening to. The build up from the start of the track to the moment when the "raaaak da haaaaouse" vocal sample comes in is pretty nifty. But it's all downhill from there....and by that stage only 15% or so of the track has played!! After that it gets repetitive and annoying, with an awful breakdown and some bog standard "techno chords"....the same sounds over and over. BORING. Most DJs would probably end up playing too much of this track while preparing their next record. Mills made it exciting by keeping it short and sweet and focusing right on the small section that creates energy rather than the majority which drains it away.

The other two mixes are even worse. Some kind of hi-energy trance versions. Yuk.
