Great tune, both parts. It has that Acen sound even though the production technique is up to date - it has that melancholic sound that all his early stuff always had. I wonder if they cleared that Elton sample though?

I don't know about Sydney but here in the UK everyone was fucked up on drugs before '91, during '91 and way after '91 but they also danced because they liked it.

Amazing set this, would have loved to have been there seeing it live, but I only went to the '95 Tribal Gathering. Some classics mixed in Laurent's true style. Mixing is a little sloppy briefly in parts but other than that its a fantastic selection... See full review

B1 here for me. A lovely hard chunky distorted break layered over lush haunting pads evokes a very Aphex-ey sound but maybe with a slightly harder edge. An maybe at a push I would also recommend B2 with it's more trance-ey sound and arrangement. It... See full review

That Agoraphobia track is fantastic, certainly the one to go for on this E.P. for me. Has a very Aphex sounding quality to it with those haunted pads and that chunky distorted break clattering around. Great hard dance music.

Unreleased tune, and like Poinydexter says, there was no digital back then, not really even CDs were mixed, it was all vinyl, so I assume Carl Cox must have just had a personal pressing or acetate of this track for himself.

Oddly, Leave Me In Broken Dreams works. The vocal isn't really in time with the beat but it gives it this kind of other-worldly ghostly quality. I wonder if he cleared that Motown sample?

Also check out Rush Hour 2 - Happy House Rides Again. A little more up-beat, and, maybe, a little more cheesy, but still some great tunes from that same time as COUH vol 1.

If you put more that 20 minutes on one side of vinyl you lose quality quite drastically. That's why most older albums from before the CD era were usually around 40 minutes.

Some of the best tracks from the time on this compilation. A time just before the Happy Hardcore sound started to get a little too cartoonish and juvenile IMO. Absolute classics really and well worth getting.

I agree, these are great happy-sounding tracks from the tailend of the breakbeat hardcore scene. I do think the title of this compilation is partly responsible for the actual label 'Happy Hardcore' becoming popular, a label that, a year or two later,... See full review
