Feel The Panic!!!! Force Mass Motions’ Groundbreaking Oldskool LP Is Available Digitally And You Got To Have It!!!!
Oldskool ravers will fondly remember the absolutely massive anthem ‘Feel The Panic’ by Force Mass Motion. Everyone played it, it had a huge influence on the mid 90’s UK Hardcore sound where kickdrums replaced the breakbeats. However we certainly weren’t aware (until now) that Force Mass Motion released an album back in 92. Good news!!! That very album is now in remastered digital format, you can get it from the major dancefloor stores. Lets go through the tracks
The kind of stompy hardcore that Carl Cox used to play. Busy, loaded with synths and samples. Was this the influence for a certain UltraSonic track? Could be
2. Collision Course
The main riff of ‘Collision Course’ will be familiar to happy hardcore heads and for a 92 track, it sounds like it was made in 95. Uplifting bouncy techno brilliance.
More stomping action with Belgian & Detroit Techno stabs & Hip Hop vox. A nice crossover between the contrasting styles of Rave/Hardcore from daaan sarrrrf and ooop noorf!!!
Gabber/Hardcore Techno circa 92′. Starting with pounding Kickdrums, Hoovers and acid 303s, the track once again switches into English Breakbeat Hardcore midway before returning to the kickdrum fueled action.
5.I Dream Of You
Bleepy dreamy Italo Piano rave perfect for kicking back to on a summer day
6.Jack Of Diamonds
A hugely popular track that epitomises Force Mass Motion and the Rabbit City imprint. Completely manic and full of energy
7.Feel The Panic
Massive ravers’ anthem that still gets the rewind at oldskool events to this day. Feel the panic!!!! Gotta have it!!!!
Another manic Rabbit City style hardcore tune with more of a 91/early 92 feel. Featuring similar pads to Razor Boy & Mirror Man ‘Beyond Control’ and the beats used in SL2 ‘DJs Take Control’ and many other hardcore classics
9.Take Me Higher
Pure 92′ ardcore a la 2 Bad Mice, Sonz Of A Loop Da’ Loop Era et al. From the distinctly signature oldskool breaks to the ravey trippy keys. This is 92 in a bottle. a tune that rocked the Fantazias and Dreamscapes across the UK and still sounds awesome
Some very early Tech Trance with a bit of House & Hardcore thrown in for good measure, a track way ahead of it’s time
In a similar vein to V.N.E, Vanishing Point is a very unique track of it’s time. A melting pot of many genres leaning towards bangin’ techno but with so much more in there for good measure
In summary, oh forget the summary!!! This is an essential album which digital fans like myself can now own. Love your oldskool? Grab this from the links below. Oh and word is there may be a vinyl re release too, head over to the Force Mass Motion official facebook page for more info
