    This EP is an interesting example of a time when the various subgenres of dance music were splitting into their own very separate scenes, but still had some connecting ground. The Edge releases from this time show that split, and this EP is a perfect example. Because "Millenium" on the A side is a straight up, 190-ish bpm gabber tune, packed with manic hoovers, high-pitched 303s, and Rotterdam stabs - full of energy and ideas, and it stands up with all the best Dutch / German / US tracks of the time.

    This was one of those tunes I heard on quite a few tapes from 94/95, and took ages to identify (partly because the only identifying sample in it is the occasional well placed rave whistle!). In fact I only discovered it when I was looking for Edge *11 (another Edge EP with 1 excellent gabber tune). I suspect the fact that it was not on a label known for hardcore is why it remains a bit of a hidden gem.

    The B side is more typical Edge, although also diverse - whilst "Gᵇ6" is a techno/trance hybrid typical of Edge, the B1 tune "C5" is much harder, with a heavy kick and relentless 303s. (Although confusingly, there is also a tune called C5 on Edge *16 which is a different tune entirely!)

    But it's the A side that stands out here - any early hardcore fanatic really should have a copy of this (and it remains pretty cheap!)
