          Came for the Ordinary Mix, stayed for the Midday mix. It's got that classic early 90s vibe and works really well as a transition from something house-y into something techno-y. Night Nurse is cool too.

            Midnite Mix is the one if you like frenetic, dark, and sinister. More techno than hardcore. Belgian influences with a big nod to the early Warp and Network sound, all with the 4/4 + breakbeat twist that 1991 UK producers gave us. I just found my copy during a sort out, right next to Cybersonik Technarchy, two tracks that for me, complement each other - like two brothers...having a fight.

              I think both 1991 EP's from Doc are really playable, you got some raw hardcore rave on this, never too cheesy. Also the more deep tunes where hardcore elements meet chords progressions are something that is a unique fusion.

                  Doc Scott was a wicked dj at school ,,, by the time he was playing the eclipse he had the crowd eating out his hand,,,,, this ep is a stunning example of rave music at its very best

                    Absolute beast of an EP. The Ordinary & Midnite mixes kick some serious botty. The Midday mix is more chilled (sampling 808 State's Pacific) but is still great. These and the other early mixes & releases (NHS) by Doc Scott really pushed stuff and made you realise it didn't all have to be cheesy shit.

                      Doc Scott sent this tune to XL Recordings, but they passed on it.
