    Nuno was one of my favourite Production House artists and as has been mentioned before, this is a top notch EP and one that every breakbeat hardcore fan should own.

    "World Champion (I Feel So Real)" was one of my very first oldskool Holy Grails after hearing a snippet of it on an old late night dance music TV show called "BPM", which did a spotlight on the Production House recording studios. I had recorded it by fluke on a long lost VHS tape and have been hoping someone would upload it to YouTube. Anyways it's a masterfully crafted, uplifting slice of hardcore with so much going on in it. Nino really knew how to make epic tracks.

    My favourite track however soon turned out to be "Revelation (We See The Light)". A track which expertly blends lighter elements with a pitch black drop. That dubby section always gets me.

    "Reality" rounds off the trio in true head nodding, junglistic fashion with it reggae vibe, steppin' breaks and cavernous bassline.

    As I said before on my "Future Of Latin / The Gun" review, it's a damn shame Nino wasn't more prolific!

      knock 'em out! Outstanding Production House tune and mixes so well, with just about any tune of the genre.

        Wow! If you'll excuse the pun, really excellent PRODUCTION on this release! Levels all nice and sounds really crisp - ahead of it's time no question.

            I find this offering from Nino is a decent 3 tracker,but compared to his 1st release The Future of Latin/The Gun it comes up short in quality.

              Orbital were obviously fans of "World Champion" as they completely ripped off the breakdown from the middle of the track for the last tune on the In Sides album....

                I think this is my favorite of all the Production House releases, even better than the ones in the Trip To The Moon series. Nino has composed three hardcore symphonies here, each worthy of a listen. All three pieces are quite long, around 8 minutes, and go through many different movements. Though many hardcore tracks do not adhere to the rigid format of a pop song or the repetitive structure of a techno track, Nino took the principle to the extreme here. Tracks take unpredictable turns going wherever Nino's mind wanders. Sometimes they lead to unlikely samples like the "If I Were A Rich Man" bit in "World Champion", sometimes to a rave breakdown. It makes for a very absorbing listening experience. As can be expected there are lots of chipmunks and a kind of sweet atmosphere that I can't describe but that can rarely be found outside Production House releases. I am not sure how well these tracks would work on a dancefloor (the dj would have to be careful to select the right part of the track and mix out quickly) but they work great as complete compositions to listen to at home - something that very few hardcore tracks achieve. One final note, the tracks are a little slow for the time - around 145 BPM - when everyone else was doing things around 160 BPM. This shows that either Nino didn't care about what other people were doing or that these tracks too a while to put together.
