Never understood why Access is that famous. It is extremely simple, repetitive, and lacking creativity.They finished the track in 2 hours by the way, which is not surprising at all.

Simple - maybe, but it's simplicity was... See full review

Hey! Maybe you shouldn't be illegally ripping and selling other peoples copyrighted music.

The reason for the court case stems from Positiva allegedly using the vocals from the original 1996 release, rather than their own 1997 re-release of Coco’s track (which had re-recorded vocals). This would mean any agreements signed would be invalid... See full review

Those are high volume releases, pressed in the thousands by labels backed by big record companies which means they can afford the large upfront costs and the resulting unit costs are much cheaper. DMUK is a self-funded one-man record label and... See full review

The sample "I want some more" is taken from the film Interview with the Vampire (1994), spoken by Kirsten Dunst.

Amusing that people are still trying to sell this for anything between £20 and £60 despite it still being available on the Underworld website for £12.50...

A lot of the Jackpot catalogue has not aged well and sounds positively dated today, but this track - in particular the Stonk Mix - still stands up as a fine piece of progressive trance.

The commercialization killed it, but for those of us who had picked up on it before it hit the pop charts (I grabbed a copy when Platipus licensed it), it did sound pretty special.

It’s an acetate, anyone with a digital version can go to The Exchange and have their own acetate cut and it would look identical to this release. Hence talking about ‘official’ numbers when dealing with acetates makes no sense, unless they are... See full review

One of their low points, even Liam Howlett declared this a shit record and disowned it.

The version on the CD Pool release is the Original mix, and not the Talisman & Hudson Mix. The T&H Mix has never been released anywhere, sadly.

As one might expect from a bootleg, the sound quality on this version is very poor. If you are looking for a vinyl copy, don't bother with this release - track down one of the official copies or you will most likely be disappointed.

Note that this is the re-release following the court case with Spandau Ballet, and so has the guitar sample removed - if you want the 'correct' original version you need to look at the earlier releases. Personally I think it makes quite a big... See full review

Some of the mixing is less than perfect, but fans of Coxy will know that this isn't what he's about - the first CD in particular is brilliantly constructed. From the way Jeff Mills "Late Night" gently fades into "Meet My Modem" to Stone Circle "Deep... See full review

The Andy Weatherall mix features the sample (famously used in Paul Oakenfold's Goa Mix);

"The DJ eases a spliff, from his lyrical lips, and smilingly orders....CEASE!"

Which comes in halfway through the record, hence the 'Mix of Two Halves'... See full review

My favourite mix of this track, very similar to the original mixes and only really differs in the arrangement. Uses the vocal samples to good effect and has a much more ethereal, trancier feel. If you like the original tune this is well worth tracking down. See full review

I first heard this track on Paul Van Dyk's Essential Mix from 1997, and then made it my mission to track down a copy. Mission accomplished several years later with two of these (beautifully presented) records, one of which is locked away for my... See full review

The reason this mix never got released was due to Slacker leaving XL Recordings - XL were unable to release the record due to copyright reasons. This is the same reason Virus 'Hypnotise' was never released when Paul Oakenfold left Warner... See full review

In case you've ever lied awake at night wondering where this sample comes from ("You know we aren't meant to exist in the outside world!"), it is from the classic Japanese anime movie, Akira (the original English dub)
