Huge Bleep track, deep deep bassline, haunting synths, & the bleep loop, put together perfectly. Massive track back in its day, still sounds amazing today, a must have for any fan of the 90's scene.

Great EP with 3 solid releases, "Inferno" is a big full-on peak-time driving house track packed full of samples, with a disco house feel, its that driving piano that gets me (sampling "Dan Hartman Relight My Fire", disco style synth stabs and vocal /... See full review

Its all about the vocal for me on this track, lifted further by the rich deep pads & strings, underpinned by the funky percussion & drums & deep bassline.

Great to get a reissue of this fantastic deep house track, take your pick on the mixes, first released in 1998, the horn rift seems like it was later sampled for DJ Jean "The Launch", but on a totally different vibe, this is class.

Deep dark tribal house, "Original" mix has a nice acid vibe, that bubbles along nicely building, "Factory Mix" makes full use of the vocal, over its deep tribal beats as the track twists and morphs over its journey. "Factory Dub" again is a deep dark... See full review

Deep house track using the familiar "Won't You Shelter Me" vocal sample with a bit of "Take Me Away" thrown in for good measure, topped off with deep melodic synths & an even deeper bassline.

Great remix of "LFO" which was always going to be a tough one, but was a big track in its own right, but you also get the distorted beats and deep deep sub-bass of "Mentok 1", another huge tune, followed by "Quijard" which as well as those deep... See full review

"Track With No Name" is one of those seminal tracks that helped influence many others and shape the music scene of its time and today. Its all about that bassline for me & when the Bleeps drop in its just so simple yet heavenly, fantastic track.

Lovely old house track that has a soul, love the bassline on the "Original Jersey Mix" it just sits there and lets the vocal & other elements flow, but just grabs your attention from time to time. Other mixes are worth a listen too.

"Flatliners" was a huge hardcore tune and a bit of a classic, its just full on madness, packed full of synth samples and driving beats. Flip this 12" over and you want be disappointed with "C.O.D. Rider" driving beats and that bassline incredible track.

Superb slice of Garage House with an uplifting vibe, great vocal, funky bassline, and nice piano / string & synth stabs and loops throughout. Nice set of mixes probably "New Jersey Joe Edit" is the one I would go for.

Nice set of mixes with plenty of others to choose from too, & its always going to be tough job to remix such a classic as "Strings Of Life". Remix just give it the vibe / sound of the time but its always going to be the original for me.

Lovely EP - kind of feels like a transformation from Nexus 21 too Altern 8, as it leans closer to the Detroit sound, rather than the rave sound of Altern 8. Really worth a listen and some of the tracks still sound great today.
