Released at the end of 2008 however I didn’t get my copy until a couple of months ago; hopefully there’s still some floating around but if you see one, jump on it. Apparently they also come with a cd single of the same tracks, although mine didn’t. Prepare to pay over the odds because it’s a piece of vinyl pressed and released in Japan but worth it for this single track, with the other three left way, way behind. This composition has an exquisite gentleness that makes you forget you’re listening to a four-on-the-floor house track with the off-beat repeated melody. Can’t help but wish it went on for longer, extended to cover a whole side – a soundtrack to dance under a starlit night to, with an approaching dawn infiltrating the blackness on the horizon.
DJ Dangerous takes no prisoners with this high energy mix, cutting up tracks with crossfader nimbleness whilst slipping in snippets from others. However in doing so, he pushes up the pitch control on some tracks to squeeze the mix in, which may make the purists baulk at such rough treatment of ‘their’ classics. Personally, for me, it drives this mix forward and makes it great fun to listen to.
Props to _Hawk_ on the discogs forums for sending me a copy as part of a mix exchange many years ago.

Unusual track that was popular way back in the day – another track I remember hearing first on Steve Jackson’s show on Kiss FM which I had recorded. I believe I wore that tape out from repeated plays – a track that had plenty of underground cachet.
Music please… just gimme some… music please
