Strings on we are the future from Michael Nyman's 'Bisocosis Populi' from the 'A Zed And Two Noughts' soundtrack - funny how these things leap out at you when you watch the sampled movie!

Simon Reynolds, in his seminal history of rave and hardcore "Energy Flash", connects the melancholic "i'm drowning in her" sample (MDMA has always been personified as a woman in referential samples) together with the next vocal sample in the song --- "how?", from the Mr. Kirk's Nightmare speech --- as a lament of a scene gone bad, of serotonin receptors no longer functioning, of MDMA abuse turning empathogens into mere speed... a "how did we get here" of communal drug abuse. And that makes it all the more beautiful and touching.

He doesn't mention the b-side, but in the context the a-side provides, the b-side's sample of "we are the future" becomes even more plaintive. Rave culture always thought it was the future --- but here, the exuberance in that thought is gone. The track title is spoken solemnly with no zest. No rush. Dissociated, not connected.

A prelude to the death of the rave dream. I love this record even though it breaks my heart.

Dark class... A heavy tune which is probably more popular now than when it was released in 1993. Foul Play are behind this I believe - slick sounding & sample heavy. Nasty big beats & bass, chilled keys + chords plus the Robert Owens sample all combine to make one of the best jungle tunes about. This was battered by all the top DJ's at the time - no sh*t, it was immense. DJ Randall, Fabio, Hype all went in on this. Yes, it's very expensive to get the original but an impressive addition to any collection, especially if you play an old skool set.

I managed to get both tunes on "the centuries ascendance"compilation.paid £15 for it but I don't mind waking up the gains to get it in the mix with a "12. £15 well spent and also another killer unreleased on that is the's onthe notch dark age ! !

The odd backwards synth sounds about 3 mins in, sound like they're from Ruhige Nervosität by Manuel Göttsching, or more like Sueno Latino which sampled it and more people would know but buggered if I can find the right 'bit'.
