Pure happy 92 style rave in the style of Dream Frequency et al, be ready for a barrage of fizzing bass and stomping breaks on this one!!! Medicine
We’ll take this medicine all day long, you will note repeated use of the word ‘pianos’ in this review because nefti is the king of pianos and big funky riffs like the one on ‘Medicine’ Taking Me High (VIP Mix)

A slower more housey number rather like neftis’ Rave Force alias. This will evoke happy memories for the older ravers among us and equally so for the younger ones. One of the best tracks on this great LP Oneplayz Ft Martyna Sierminska- Feel It (Nefti Remix)
Switching between tinkling and sparkling pianos, ecstatic vocals and some good ol’ gurning n’ growling bass savagery, a massive massive remix!!! E-Lab Rat – Uplifting Tip (Nefti Remix)
E Lab Rat of Warehouse Wax fame gets a top remix included on Neftis’ 15th Anniversary LP. Very much in the style of Warehouse Wax i.e an certified banger!!! Sanxion – Hold Me Endless (Nefti Remix)
Amping up the bass mayhem of Sanxions’ original to plus ten for a seriously epic workout!!! Cyborg (Sanxion Remix)
