Orbital - Impact USA

FFRR - 1993

Since I haven't posted a track in a minute, I figured I'd post a really long one (pause), standing proud at 11 minutes and 20 seconds.
I forget the name name of the rave I first heard this at... something like Magic Wonderland, all I remember was that it had a Disney related name. The party wasn't that great, but I remember hearing a lot of crazy tracks for the first time that night. Jesse Brooks played this particular one and I remember talking to my bro Toby about how fucking cool I thought it was. I saw that the record had an FFRR sleeve. The next day I was at a record store with Donson (who just made an incredible mix you need to check out) and I grabbed this very record off the wall. "I know that track," he said "it's not the one you're looking for." Liar. I went ahead and placed it back on the shelf. I spent the next few years listening to every FFRR record I ever came across and boy do they ever have a massive catalog of crap. Anyways... when Amoeba first opened it was up on the wall and I just knew it had to be it. Sure enough, 'twas. Now get your trance breaks on!

Magic Kingdom?

Dude, I knew that was the record. I just thought if you looked for it for years it would be THAT MUCH better y'know?

Ohhhh... You sent me on a wonderful journey. Thanks. Magic Kindom sounds right... Remember how far that shit was?

No idea. Was that the one in the Mexican restaraunt in San Bernadino?

FFRR has a huge back catalogue of dodgy tunes because Pete Tong was their A&R for most of their lifespan. And he still gets kudos as a tastemaker. Sometimes life just ain't fair!

How weird is it that I got to your post??? I was looking for a digital copy of this track because I'm not sure if I even have the records any more. Things seem to disappear through the years. Any how... Thanks
