    Absolute classics. Take me back please. Great times and amazing tracks. A golden time I hold in my heart forever.

      Super weird fact: If you get the label under a strobe flashing at the correct rate, the label actually acts like a Zoetrope & the little man on the label can actually be seen dancing. Think I'm tripping??? Go check for yourself, I witnessed this when playing this in a club in Bath, UK mid 91, staring at the label with the little man jumping around - I though it was the additives -- jump forward about 20 years, I found a little handheld strobe in a 2nd hand store -- couldn't resist buying it "just to check" --- got it home ---- FUCK ME -- LITTLE DANCING MAN RETURNS!!!!!! ...........Your call ......... :) :)

        The record is a bit quite, I found myself yanking up the levels on my mixer to get it loud enough. Despite this, 11/10

            When I hear this tune, I also hear Mad P from Top Buzz Mc'ing over it (burnt in to my memory). "If I said to you girl I really loved you, If i said to girl I really cared.."
            Also remember these guys being featured in Amiga format at the time showing off their music set up. They made the beat on Amiga computer I recall. Not bad considering it got sampled a lot.

              Got this gem of a tune at a flea market, recognised the top of the sleeve poking out amongst some other it for £1 and it is mint. Classic tune

                Some Justice is overplayed, but i feel it deserves it.
                I use it as a benchmark for how much speakers can take. The sine basslines make the track.
                It doesnt really get tiring. Good for mixing.
                Ruff Justice never gets enough love, it's a pretty solid track.

                  Truly huge tune back in the day. Colin Favor used to hammer this on his radio show.
                  22 years later Ive just bought the 12"!!

                    Marshall Jefferson gets 60% of the publishing for this tune.

                      The history behind this tune is that Aphrodite was playing a demo version of this tune to Ray Keith in City Sounds. Mickey Finn was is the shop at the time, and he, Aphrodite and Claudio Guissani decided to wotk together on it. After the meeting they added the Ce Ce Rogers sample and the Run DMC break, and Voila! a hardcore classic was born.
