This is the seventh track on Polygon Window’s 1992 album Surfing on Sine Waves. Quality stuff. Very slow and dark as midnight on a moonless night. It’s a pretty good example of the link between what Richard James created together with Mike Dred, the grimy hard acid techno of Universal Indicator – and the crispy weirdness of his most recognised alter ego – The Aphex Twin.
While these massive horn sounds make me shiver with fear and awe, somehow they also make me think of the Ghost Valley courses in Mario Kart. What a great game. Wow.
This track is, as you may know, considered probably the first proper gabber/hardcore tracks, coming from the early days of the Dutch hard house scene. It was ranked #1 in the charts in Denmark and Holland in 1992. I doubt something like that would happen today.
This was the start of something big. In my opinion the group name, track and video is just perfect.
Winner at The Party 1992, Amiga ECS.
