Historical Facts

  • Carl Cox was an in-demand DJ for the massive raves, particularly for his trademark performance on 3 decks. 'I want You (Forever) was his first release.
  • WestBam is abbreviated from Westphalia BamBaataa and derives from this artist's home state in Germany and his role model Afrika Bambaataa.
  • 'Infiltrate 202' contains vocal samples from Candi Staton's 'I Know' and the string sample from 'Pacific State'. 202 refers to the Roland MC-202. The bassline from that synth is used on this track and several others in this mix
  • '(Can You) Feel The Passion' is Youth's homage to Bizarre Inc's 'Playing With Knives'
  • This version of Blame's 'Music Takes You' contains the original sample from Seal's 'The Beginning'. This was removed from the official release for legal reasons.
  • 'Keep On Pumpin' It' was produced by Stock & Waterman and released on PWL. But it's actually good!
