posted a comment on Merlin - Drop The Weapon / Weekend Girl. 1 day ago
Why the low rating? sure Merlins lyrics aren't the deepest and Weekend Girl isn't really my cup of tea but Drop The Pressure is a fairly solid funky track for the dancefloor. However Bust A Move is a huge raw rattler that sounds like it was recorded at a ... See full review

Tempo wise it kinda works at 45 although the frequency shift up doesn't in my opinion.

Yep never going to happen unless someone bootlegs it again, I don't think Andy could be bothered to re-release these even if he was given full clearance. But sure give it a go "people power" and all that er stuff.

From memory the vocal sample was sampled from The Roots and on one of the Roots albums they did their own version of this and put it as a kinda bonus track at the end.

Its strange that the issues that only feature the Coldcut & DJ Food portions of the mix still have DJ Krush on the artwork.

There was a track around the same time called Milk of Magnesia by Bam Bam Musique which caused many people to order that record when they were actually after this. Great track, Kane vocal sample, bleeps, big stabs, Assembly Line break but I remember it ... See full review

At the time to me it sounded a bit like left over Jake Slazenger tracks that either Warp or Clear didn't want and Richard threw in a couple of random rough draft tracks to fill it out. I know there are heaps of people who love it but as an owner of ... See full review

Is this reissue pressed using the NSC masters or the D&M's? because they sound like a D&M master rather than the NSC's.

In my opinion considering the greatness put out by Tom & Mark on Evolution the The Horn 12"s are completely sub par. Just my opinion of course.

Great deep house 12" by Brian my only negative is I reckon the mix on The Horn is slightly out I always found the kick is to forward in the mix and all the beautiful work gets lost on big systems. Just my opinion of course.

The Manali Cream mix was played to death in the chill out rooms at most of the big UK raves during 93 into 94 and when that electro beat kicked in 1/4 of the way in the zombies would for a brief time rise up and commence swaying to one of the simplest & ... See full review

So which pressing plant presses over 100 test pressings....none, seems like a weird marketing ploy to me.
Anyway dope tracks from Glenn.

Better 100 pressings than zero I say, why people have little tantrums over how many a label decides/is able to press is beyond me.

Dope Detroit business that unfortunately doesnt get the respect it fully deserves. James turns out a great album that hits the dance floor as well as the home equally. The only track that to me seems slightly out of place in the flow of the album is ... See full review

Beautiful rolling techno with a massive nod to Detroit as expected, I just wish the production was a bit cleaner although it could be the pressing. Either way still a great record.

So 200 pressed and I am sure of that 200 maybe 2/3's (at best) of owners would be bothered to be on discogs to note as "have". So roughly more than 100 "haves" on here are false........why do people do this? I could tell everyone on here I am Marcus Eoin ... See full review

Straight up embarrassing, they have the skills yet it seems to be about selling merchandise & sticking it to Supreme. Yet another & possibly final blow to the legend of Hijack. Meanwhile Supreme knocks out dope tracks.

The track titled Radio mix is from memory the freestyle mix as someone may have already pointed out, which is actually the opposite of your typical radio type mix, its a really nice dub version that gets over looked but holds its own.

Hmmmmm deliberate lofi mastering pressed to coloured vinyl, whats next? the pressing plant running sandpaper over the record coupled with a couple of deep scratchers to give it that authentic second hand feel. Seriously what is going on today.

Listening back to the original mix now I forgot there is a rolling break in there, which wasn't that common for big trance numbers like this back then.

Well if that is true were did they get the masters from? because to most people me included the 1972 pressing is absolutely worthless because of the terrible sound quality.

This album did nearly as much for Tim's Bomb The Bass name as Into The Dragon. It gained the attention of artists like Depeche Mode and turned Tim into a producer as much as an artist.
