        Fantastic 12" with a couple of old school corkers ! "DJ's Take Control (Original Version)" is a sample fueled monster over some nice breakbeats - Hardcore classic. "Way In My Brain (Original Version)" is also a great track - with its instantly recognizable intro and sound, which had a couple of remixes on a separate 12". "The Noise" has a couple of mixes again a great track with a tougher darker hardcore edge.

          The main beat on the track A1 is from a late 80's Rap Track called "Dope on Plastic" by an a rapper calling himself Uptown. You can even hear him saying the first word of the track "Dope" all the way through it. The music for the "Dope on Plastic" track was built by the guy from Black By Demand (another late 80's NYC Rap group).

                Dance floor history. Not only do you get "Nightwriters" and "Let the Music Use you", you also get a classic piece of 1992 breakbeat hardcore. One for the collection.
