In Order Of Chaos

by Number Nine



Following the warm reception of "Dead Bodies Ecstasy", Number Nine made this second single in spring 1991, exactly 30 full years ago!

Back then, it was all about sampling : no fancy synths or expensive beatboxes : only sounds sampled from various records, using the Ensoniq EPS 16. The bass from "He Chilled Out", The voice of Miss Nicky Trax on "I sit on Acid", The synth on "Frankie "0" Generator", The Bassdrum of "Tricky Disco", you name it! And of course, Hal from "2001 Space Odyssey", plus Public Enemy's famous "Bass" sample in reverse as a nod to Front 242's Richard 23, all this blended with dialogues from the mythical last episode of Patrick Mc Goohan's "The Prisoner".
Those were the days!

Beyond the tracks from the original release, you get here two unreleased songs from the same period : "Number Nine Theme", that was clarifying where the band and label got their name ( ;-) and "Zim Boom (Gentlemen)", that offered a very unusual blend of New York Freestyle House and Belgian Hard Beat.

And to round the package, we added the "Demo Mix", also known as the "Bone Mix" (House lovers will get instantly why by listening to the bass sound!) This version was made in Fall 1990, and remained hidden in n9's floppy discs until 2005 when it was shared to fellow "Oldskool Lovers"on Discogs eponymous forum.
