"Dance with the devil" has a fantastic drum solo reminiscent of Miami Vice (80's TV series) Jan Hammer stuff and excellent use of church bells.
The track was on my first owned acid cassette back in 1988, many thanks to the Ashdown Park barman at that ... See full review

N.A.M meaning "New Art Movement" featured heavily at The Shelley Arms, Nutley in 1990/91 (and possibly in later years when I no longer frequented the place). The two main men in N.A.M came from Crawley, Sussex and had come into the rave scene from Hip ... See full review

Atlantis - this was the rave in 1991, now sounds dated of course. Formulaic it is, mindbending on the dance floor it was. Atlantis was once the most advanced of all Earths peoples, situated at what we now call The Azores ;)

The bassline is lifted off a great track by Mantronix, named.. Bassline !

Agree with the kleez & vortex; an apex reached here in rave music. Espionage remix was caned by Top Buzz & guaranteed mayhem on the floor, especially when the ice cream van made/makes an appearance at 2.40mins. Check it on the ... See full review

It is generally thought that Father Forgive Them by Holy Noise was the first dance tune to sample the Amen break. However, I would like to make a case for High On Life (Live From Manchester) being the first. This was released very early in 1990 & it must ... See full review

Variety of dance music genres can be found on this 12". Satan, a relatively downtempo track - with a hard edge, benefits by lacking the hardcore Amen drums added to subsequent mixes; always went down a storm at live gigs. LC1, a more house orientated ... See full review

Fireball: earliest memory of this was when Dj Lime mixed it into a superb set at the Zap Club, Brighton. A truly great example of underground rave music at its best, though the rave scene may (or may not) have already peaked by the time of its release. ... See full review

posted a review of The Unknown (2) - Dreams Of Santa Anna. over 10 years ago
While the title track 'Dreams of Santa Anna' remains a reasonable example of the underground dance sound of the era, it's the B-side tracks that have the edge for me. Psycho - sinister breakbeat style with a basic, cello sound synth loop & horror film ... See full review

Homicide - fired up both basement & top dance floors at Sterns Nightclub, Worthing. Loved by the techno heads & breakers alike. Riki-tiki-tick drum break, soulful bassline, with a 'Teckno 2 like' repeating synth riff, with some acidic sounds introduced ... See full review

These rave tracks from early 1991, have the very rare accolade of having an equally good, or maybe better?, remix 12" offering from Lenny Dee, Eric Kupper (note. this remixed version of 'Brazil' uses the same screechy sample as 'Digital Boy - Rotation', ... See full review

1st heard this played by DJ Matthew B at the 'Camber Sands Weekender' in the spring of 91. It received a huge reaction from the crowd - smiles all round. Does anyone remember the Camber Sands Weekender live video channel? - well dodgy goings on. My ... See full review

ROTATION. First heard this on the car radio, in the car park of The Wheatsheaf public house, Cuckfield, in 1990. It was being played in a Kiss FM mix (possibly by Carl Cox). Having been a fan of acid house & Detroit techno for some time, this summed up ... See full review
