"I'm a classical musician. Quite often, with the world around me, I fall out of touch; In efforts to keep up, I try to keep on top of the music it puts out. Music is, afterall, my language, and furthermore, it's the most accurate and compelling form of communicative expression of and amongst ourselves to whatever may be called the human spirit. I don't remember exactly how I first came into contact with Basement Jaxx, but, however it was, it was a god send, an absolute blessing. From the beginning YoYoYo's of the radio edit of Red Alert, I was instantly addicted. It is Basement Jaxx which keeps alive my hope for any future in this world's music, but not only this, the fact that they exist RIGHT NOW and are making such music, it makes living a very wonderful thing! If you want really great music, the kind for which the world's musically-educated elite will forever be ashamed to admit their love for the simple reason that it is not classical, it doesn't involve any intensive studies, it puts to waste their years of training and experience, it's just there right in front of you waiting to be enjoyed, the kind that infects your very existence and haunts you day and night, you will have to seek no further than tracks 2 and 3 of this maxi-single. If I were forced to choose a cds worth of music and would never thereafter again be able to listen to any other music, surely, without doubt, I would devote the first 15 minutes which are the first three tracks of this disc..."

"This is going to be THE club track of the summer! A pumping bassline, screeching vocals, and a wonderful break make this one a track to keep an eye on. With a batch of mixes to choose from (all sounding similar, but with slight differences), you should be happy with this cd. If you enjoy a pumping club track (something like Blackout's "Gotta Have Hope" comes to mind) pick this disc up."
