    The original generic cover is exactly the same as any other generic cover from the same country of publication of each reference... It makes me laugh when people use the valuation of the cover when it comes to an album that has the generic label.. It doesn't matter if they detail it in the article description... that has a name and it's DECEPTION.

      INFO: Esta referencia se vendió en todo el mundo con portada genérica.. No existe portada oficial para este vinilo... No os dejéis engañar por los que pongan otra cosa que no sea portada genérica para aumentar el valor de su artículo... Acabemos ya de una vez por todas con los farsantes..!!

      Paz, Música y Harmonía..!!

      INFO: This reference was sold worldwide with a generic cover. There is no official cover for this vinyl... Do not be fooled by those who put something other than a generic cover to increase the value of their item... Let's end once and for all with the fakers..!!

      Peace, Music and Harmony..!!

        This is possibly the only record I want to be buried with. Kelley Polar Quartet on strings. Morgan and Darshan behind the tune...such a timeless work of art!

          Personally, I would class "Caught Up" as my #1 favourite deep house track. Such emotional nuance married with impeccable arrangement is incredibly rare.

            "Tonky Pumpz" is the one on this EP. Funky, pumpin', does its work on the floor. The rest of this record is not very interesting in my opinion.

              "Caught Up" uses samples from both sides of Inner Life's "I'm Caught Up (In One Night Love Affairs)"

                Probably the best EP on this label by far... and the rest is damn good too! "Caught Up" is my favorite one, although "Tonky pumps" is the one that gets the crowd going. Kudos to Darshan and Morgan, this EP has given pleasant evenings over and over.

                  'Caught Up' is a timeless midtempo classic, like the dream night encounter of deep Detroit house with tender disco strings played live, the whole recorded with analogue equipement and acoustic instruments and percussions which gives it a unique warmth. Very hard to avoid gooseflesh when the strings come back in. Essential tune that tells a real story.

                    Caught up is such an emotional release. Sounds like there is no electronica involved at all. It can be fit in every set from deep-house/garage to Detroit techno. Every style is in it. Think this will be the most sought after record within 5 years from now. TOTAL GEM
