2.30 AM rave in Shelley's car park. For all those who don't know Shelley's isn't some northern bird or a crap shoe shop, it is probably Stafford's best club. Altern8 held a rave in the car park at 2.30 am on the 15th of September 1991. An interview with ... See full review

After visiting the mind behind 'Human Resource' this past weekend in Amsterdam Guido Pernet tells me 'Fuck Them' was HR's most renowned track, even above the widely successful 'Dominator'. The real crowd drawer in places like Holland & UK

Extremely rare release, one of my favs. Hard Rotterdam kick drums, sweeping Guitar riffs & in your face MC / dropping vocals. Banging remixes also make this Gabber at its finest

"This is the Sound of Rotterdam" - The vocal mix (track 4) on this collection is an amazing remix, full of energy & passion this really produces 1 outstanding tune. Mix with the complimenting additional 3 tracks, KNOR truly lives up to it's name!

This hit the UK charts in December 1991 after HR's Original Dominator release only reached 36 on its first run. This managed to reach spot 18 with the assistance of remixes by Beltram, Bolland & De Wulf. Had it not been competing with xmas releases it ... See full review
posted a review of Prodigy* - The Fat Of The Land. over 15 years ago
Prodigy really changed thier style with this one, fair play for originality but this did'nt have that same impressive vibe like "Experience" did. It's more slick than Jilted Generation though, more "put together" on a Productive standpoint me thinks...
posted a review of Dionysos - Break On Through. over 15 years ago
Title kinda gives away that this samples "The Doors" classic "Break On Through". Takes it into less commercial realms of Rotterdam Hardcore, NICE TOUCH!!!

This works so well on the basis of synth enhanced riffs taken from 'Linkin Park's "In The End" release, spiced up with a bit of Trance & some funny drifting over comments thrown into the mix. Still contains that strong vibe of the dutch influenced ... See full review

Human Resource's first global release prior to the 1991 push of 'Dominator'. Very early house unlike thier later offerings. World class record, first class!

Funny...maybe thats the whole point of this release but play this record at 45RPM, then in reverse at the same speed & you get the same lyrics in reverse as you do in standard mode.....
posted a review of N 'n' G* Featuring Kallaghan - Right Before My Eyes. over 15 years ago
Released back in the day b4 garage became a commercial mass. The quality of the records mattered rather than picking silly names & pumping out lame tunes in an attempt to create "Ganster" attitude. N 'n' G made this "sound system banger", along with the ... See full review

Very different from "Dominating The World / & More" less of a house influenced record with more strong drifts to dutch kick drums, that are now all well asssosiated with Rotterdam. This record proved Human Resource could make the transition & move from ... See full review
