One of the few tracks from this era that I could drop in my (non breakbeat) sets now. I go apeshit on the dance floor to this track.
If you haven't heard them the remixes of "Radio Babylon" in the B side, released as "Version Galore" together with Psyche-Out remixes is some of the best records released during the nighties IMHO.

Arguably one of the first breakbeat/techno releases that was responsible for kick-starting the Uk Hardcore, & Jungle scenes here in the UK. Alongside Lenny D Ice..'We Are I.E.', Success N Effect-Roll It Up(Let The Bass Kick), and many Shut Up And Dance releases. Using heavy dub atmospherics, 808/909 break beat textures, and a large dose of industrial/technology/futurism which attracted both the hip hop b-boy crowd, the dub/reggae followers, the 'traditional' acid house raving crew, and the techno heads. This release has it all...I'm an old school techno head first and foremost, but a great track should not be forgotten whatever genre it fits in.
