Oliver!: Shake Inc. - Adrenalin (3 April 1992)
Always with a techno record, what I’m listening out for is the contrast moment. Once the initial beats and squelches have set out their wares, it’ll be the moment of change in the track that will decide for me whether I will include the track or not. With Shake Inc.’s Adrenalin that moment comes at around 1:15 when a freaky, ghostly synth line - blasting out from a rave in the divide between this world and the next - makes its entrance into the blazing mix of noise in this banger. Bringing a greater range of sonic variety than the previous week’s Twin Rave, there’s plenty of energy, life and...well...adrenalin surging through this track’s veins. I love how the sound gets dirtier as it goes on too. A mini-epic.
