    Firstly I'm a massive fan of Eriks music but I'd sit somewhere between Manys and Joshelevator on this one. Sure, it's a well crafted retro electro number that I'd be happy to have in the collection but the asking price has just gone nuts! The recent ramp up in prices has been puzzling and fascinating at the same time as just 12 months ago this had realistic asking prices. This kinda of sat as the lesser known release nestled amongst the more techno leaning Shiver 1-3 releases which to me are much better records.
    So, the question here is what is the catalyst or tipping point for this particular 20 year old obscure electro record to suddenly become so in demand....

        I couldn't disagree with Manys' review more. This song is for sure a nod to old-school electro-funk, particularly Hashim, and a bit of John Robie (one particular sound). But making a nod is exactly what Mr Van Den Broek is going for. It's just a fun, well-crafted jam that can be added to the stronger ones in the old-school-sounding electro-funk category. This does sound a bit more polished than the 80s jams, but not too much. The production is very good and it sounds great on sound system. If you are in to old-school b-boy electro-funk, you will love this song.

          I never listen to this, and can think of only two words to explain this record's inexplicable popularity: "Dave Clarke." It filled the need for a new Hashim track until Breakin' Records was born and sounds very similar to what Sem was doing on Electron Industries around the same time with chika-chika hi-hats, punchy popped drums and a resonant bassline. Don't forget your obligatory wavering strings up top and you'll have yourself a collector's item. A fine piece of craftsmanship for those who think early Eidesche and Frank de Groodt are weird.
