Kind of neat single, thanks for the rip... Nothing I'd go crazy searching out, but I'd def pick it up for a few pounds if I found it in a bin somewhere :)

edit: the speed up / slow down stuff is definitely pretty weird, wonder what the deal was with that... assume it wasn't that hard to keep stuff matched to tempo if you're using an amiga to produce :)

Good to hear, but production quality is a bit too lo-fi for the tracks to really kick. I found certain bits of the tracks a bit annoying. Personally, I'd say pretty average 92/93 fodder, but what do I know? :)

Fair enough. There are bits in there that don't really do it for me either, but there's a couple of samples which just give me goose bumps whenever i hear them. Particularly the breakdown on the b side and the drums. I think if someone did a remix and cleaned up the samples a bit it could be an absolute killer!

Just grabbed 2 of the links (inc that b-side) - some nice bits in there, especially that 1st breakdown on the b-side tune, but the sound is terrible - sounds like its been recorded from a chewed up tape - such a shame.

i quite liked the first track until the dylon drop..the standout for me was b1. Sounds to me like they were all recorded onto tape then played out loud whilst being mastered through the floor ;)
