I remember people saying that, when this record came out, it was remixes of Robert Armani's tracks.
It's not, but you can unserstand why. It's very close to Ambulance or Fire Alarm, even the production is more chicagoesque than their other productions ... See full review

A punkish remix of I.F. classic. Not sure about its dancefloor power, but still a nice record. Both version are classy.

House version of Stevie Wonder classic.
My preference goes to the dub mix and its tracky-Chicagoesque construction.

Like most of "gospel" releases on Afterhours, this one is clearly underestimated.
Tanya voice is surprising, rasping and nasal at the same time!

I really love this LP, I think it was innovative & it will remain one of the fresher procuction of the electro 2nd wave. I'm just wondering why Dj Sid, such a respected producer, did this swindle : "My Melody" is an old space disco track by Dee Jackson, ... See full review

A_side is based on a sample of Giorgio Moroder - From Here To Eternity. Actually it's quite stange to have a breakbeat version of this well known bassline, but it works, even for 4*4 head like me. Not because production is good (it's not really) but ... See full review

This ep worths it only for the great pressing of the original version of "Short Circuit". We should all thank ACV for that! The 2 mixes on a-side are not bad, but really not in the spirit of Mr Poindexter tracky acid tunes. The PJ mix of WTMF is very ... See full review

Well, I won't be libelous, but I always find strange that an "official" release, published on well-known label, could be so close to originals tracks (here : Soulful Dynamics - "Jungle People" & Katmandu "Break") without even mentionning it. Mr I.F. is ... See full review

This record is based on "1st Man In Space" by "The All Seeing I". While the Electronica mix is a pure party starter that keeps the 80 electropop feeling of the original sample, the "Lost Children Mix" is a tribal-tech house dubbed track, perfect after 6 ... See full review

Classic ! Hell's "Break The Rulez" is a pure dancefloor tool, Bartz's "Take a shot" is an early (and hard hitting) dubby tech-house monster. Now our days you could heard this kind of music averywhere (specially after 5 am...) but back in 1997 it was ... See full review

In my opinion, "Sunstance Abuse" is an answer to Joey Beltram's "Energy Flash". The 2 tracks have very similar basslines, but instead of Ecstasy, the big voice says Overdose in Hawtin track. And after that, you got a kind of acidic requiem with angel ... See full review
