    As Hyperreal says 'X' is the track. There is a wonderful Essential Mix from May 1996 of Carl Cox playing 'X' during a live broadcast captured the week before at a big Colours party at the Royal Highland Showgrounds in Edinburgh [I was lucky enough to be there and it tore the place up ... Carl Cox played from 12-2 if memory serves and the more commercial Pete Tong came on after, the poor guy - Carl Cox took the roof off ... this was the early incarnation of Carl's phase of playing banging techno and maybe less than a year after his first FACT mix came out - with Sasha to follow from 4-6am].

      The four tracks are clearly reworkings of the same principles and sequences, each with a different emphasis and style of the dominant components. Testimony to Dave Angel's production more than anything else that he can turn out 4 sufficiently different yet still top quality tracks from the same starting point. Suspect it's way too subjective to judge on quality, so I'll simply say my favourite is the X track (side c). For me it has the right blend of bouncy, hard edged dance floor feel combined with simple yet effective melody. But then I prefer Fever (B side) to Timeless (Title track) on one of his self-named releases so who I am to judge.

        All of these tracks are fantastic dancefloor killers! It's a shame that nowadays you can't find records of that unique sound and quality anymore. Four wicked, pumping tech-house-tracks that do not lack rhythm and some melodic elements. Still works in clubs like it came out in 2005.

          There is one mix in particular that is extremely good, but the rest is just OK. I agree that this sound is hard to find these days- very melodic but tough as well- much like Steve Rachmad's 100% Pure stuff.
