    Absolute classic vintage tune of the Acid! house days. When the bleep was king. Simple but yet so robust track that samples various tracks from the same era. Geoff Hibbert from Rhythm On The Loose wrote and produced this song.

      Dark Strings Intro, thumbing kick, tight Percussion, and a simple deep bass loop , along with a few cheeky samples, such as Landlord “I like It”, plus a great bleep sounding section make this a great great tune. And then right towards the end some fantastic vocal samples too (depending on the mix “ Oh It’s a Marvellous Place” “How Delightful” “How’s The Record Going” “Don’t Worry about the words” can you imagine anyone one sampling that today?. The track sounds minimal with space between each element but rich, play it as loud as you can to get the full benefit ! One of my favourites from Network and of its time and a great variety of remixes along the same theme but bringing out different elements.

        Brings back those memories of dimly lit warehouses or after rave parties this one.

        A very melodic piece of uk techno incorporating influences from both the Sheffield bleep sound and Detroit. This is a perfect balance of light and shade, soothing strings, dark synth voices, & funky, serious, cavernous basslines. That melodic keyboard by Landlord "I Like It" is momentarily thrown in there for good measure aswell. A bit of an unknown classic as far as early techno & acid house is concerned and is worth a good listen to throughout to truly appreciate fully. Without already sounding ever so corny, a bleepy, trippy delight if ever there was one.
