An odd mish-mash of a record, featuring the riff from CLS - "Can You Feel It" (Strictly Rhythm) - plus that drum loop used by the Goodmen as well as... ahem... Simply Red in "Fairground."

If you've got the CLS track you can certainly have fun with... See full review

"Fox Force Five" sounded dated within weeks of coming out, and the unimaginative use of the Pulp Fiction sample makes this a pretty feeble release.

Ying And Yang is better.

A superior piece of hard house. OK, perhap there are no real surpises, but "I'm Da Man" has a superb build up, acid hook, breakdown and dirty 303 sequence. With tasty helium vocals. Erm.. what else does hard house need?

If you're fortunate enough to find yourself in The Netherlands, check out Mid-Town Records; there's a shop in The Hague and another in Amsterdam.

They are the distributor for X-Trax and have the entire catalogue for sale in the shop. X-Trax heaven!

I'm surprised to see "Prophetic Steps" getting low votes on here. It's a great 303 track, not really pounding but oh-so-funky. Tesox were masters at this, but you either like their sound or you don't. Simple as that really.

What is essentially a very forgettable house track is only saved by Baby Doc's Hellfire remix. It can sound a bit cheesy but if you play it next to the right records, the throbbing bass breakdown and haunting female vocal make this a nice tune. Forget... See full review

I was perusing the S.U.F. website once day and noticed they were describing "Unlucky Punk" as their greatest ever release. An MP3 download later and I could believe it.

Have to confess the track had passed me by out in clubland, but after having... See full review
posted a review of DJ Misjah & DJ Tim - Access. over 18 years ago
Even if you don't know the name of it, "Access" is a tune you HAVE heard in a nightclub. Probably lots of them, in fact.

When it first appeared every single DJ who could get his hands on a copy caned it to death. Essentially a fairly minimal acid... See full review
