Started DJing in '86, went nuts for house after hearing Pump Up The Volume by MARRS in 1987. There, I said it :- )

Yeah, I remember that Euro trash wax from 1990. Way to butcher a nice disco track.
posted a review of 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor - Can't Help Myself. 5 days ago
Typical 1990 Euro trash with all the usual cheesy ingredients: cut & paste bassline, wanna-be rapping, formulaic layout & sampling.
Only redeeming factor is the chorus, because, of course, it's not original. As used to be the case from all the crapola ... See full review

The artwork here, if it wasn't too obvious already, represents the Pioneer plaque. Same illustration as used on the Voyager golden record.

The gift that kept on giving for Italo House.
Without this the Bortollotis of the world would have had half the output.
Nothing beats the original though.

OK sure, maybe not the most memorable work from Jesse Saunders, let alone Trax, but it's still a seminal piece of House Music history as the first Trax records release and the continuation of Jesse's work on its forerunner, Precision records.

  dwain.phillis Actually, it didn't. I heard it off of a tape from the guy himseld in 1992 before it came out on vinyl and it was just one more track in an otherwise forgettable night of "mankind is so beautiful, PLUR" trance. Let's face it, this music is ... See full review

Congo Drums is an absolute must-have in any house DJ bag. You can use as a tool to overlay samples or other tracks or play it in and out during a tribal set. It absolute destroys the dancefloor, and hips will shake at your mercy.

This record and Pro-2 (Circuit Breaker on Probe) were enough to get a mini acid party going back in the early 90's.
Start with Overkill, mix it up with SA, flip pro-2 over and mix it with Open Your Mind, switch to FU-2, end up with Frenz-E.

We all know the Pink Floyd and Afrika Bambaata samples, but what really makes this track is the bassline and that was also borrowed. I am surprised nobody commented on this.

As much as one can like NVL and as sexy as she sounds, you can definitely tell she is not a native English speaker.
Here, without a shred of a doubt, you can tell the vocalist has a clear American accent.

But I hope that Surreal does continue with the repress plans. It's been months now. Too many times we get these hints at a repress, then nothing.
