Some great tracks, The Interface, Detox & Kinetic Scinece... See full review
posted a review of DJ Slipmatt* & DJ Sy - United Dance Volume Four. over 15 years ago
This for me is the worst of the United Dance compilations. It's a bit too Toytown-cheese (Steam Train, Party Time) and though there are some great tunes on here, it just doesn't seem to sit well with my ears.

Liam (The Prodigy) rates his remix of 'Retribution' as the worst thing he has ever released (he hated the original too). He only remixed it because he had become friends with Jon from TTF.
posted a review of The Prodigy - No Good (Start The Dance). over 16 years ago
When making this tune Liam wasn't sure whether to use the Kelly Charles vocal sample as he though it might make it sound to euro-poppy. He used it, but said that this was the last tune he would make that would use this kind of female vocal.
