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.

Probably one of the best records of this genre IMO. Hard as F*** and with the right amount of cheese just done right. Perfect hardcore techno/gabber house

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

The stand out track for me is Granary 12. This plodding chugging squelching acid track with those incidental instructions just works perfectly. It's the musical equivalent of when you pull the plug in the bath and all the suds, grit and grime swirl away ... See full review

So that logo was used on the Atmosphere rave flyers in the UK in 1989. I wonder what the connection is? Was this label associated with the UK Atmosphere rave organisers or vice versa in some way?

For me the stand out track here is Higher. A super chugging tribal work-out that does exactly what it says on the tin - it goes higher and higher in energy as the track progresses. Perfect mid-set pace setter tune is this.

Ride On Time came out in 89 and this was out in 88 so I imagine that Black Box sampled the piano from this release.

Its all about the Groovecult's Mastertits Remix, an uplifting and less cheesy hard trance tune. The other tunes are just guilty pleasures for me if I'm honest but the Groovecult mix is worth playing to people.
