The Whole 12" Is A Banger..Every Track Means Something...They Are A Family Of Tunes.
My pride and joy for 2-3 years before it perished in a house fire in deepest, darkest Wiltshire ... Tears ... :(
I'm so sorry for your loss. I've lost records in a flood before and I think about them all the time!
I think Knowledge is probably universally the most underrated track on this groundbreaking EP. When I first heard DJ Jinx playing a Test Pressing of this at Music Power Records in Haringey, north London, it nearly blew my head off. This is the first track I'd heard from the EP long before the main track Terminator itself. And I always much preferred it to be honest. Harking back to a much darker, more techy hardcore. A pummeling in yer face mentasmic past rather than an atmospheric jungle drum n bass future. Much, much darker. But every track on this release is an equal winner for completely different reasons. Knowledge just brings back more vivid memories on a personal level :) 
Just cataloguing another crate from the racks and came across https://www.discogs.com/Mystique-Fire/release/177346 which sounds suspiciously like the source of the phasing synth from Terminator. What do you reckon?
if you read the Goldie book 9 lives - you will find out that him and Rob Playford were doing the final mix down for Terminator his "darkcore anthem" as he references it! whilst both on turbo biscuits and Goldie jumped up on the mixing desk and punched the ceiling ............which caused all kinds of drama in the studio.Anyway first time the track was ever played on British airwaves was Fabio & Grooverider filling in for shitty Steve Jackson on Kiss FM - circa early 1992 (i have the tape ripped to digital if anyones interested) - they played it on DAT and reference Terminator incorrectly as Knowledge, 3-4 months later the track dropped on wax and changed the game for ever.a track that will remain forever with me.peace.
how would i be able to get a digital copy of that kiss fm show please Shaneski75? how long is it?Many thanks, please pm me!
i m pretty sure I had that show on cassette too - did it have D livin - Why , and Chicken Fried Rice by Carl Craig on ? would love to hear it as lost my cassette years ago - was a really really special show .
Mate have you ever shared / posted that Kiss FM show RIP ?
seriously, i can only imagine what it must have been for the first crowds to hear this played back at them. those timestretched drum lines still give me goosebumps from hearing them in my car tape deck from 1993 from some 3rd or 4th gen bootleg hardcore mix that made it cross the Atlantic.
Written-By, Producer – DJ Freebase, Goldie, Markus (Co Pilot To The Stars) Rutherford* ... Must have been a good time in that studio.......... ;) Knowledge Bends it further... BTW
I am not going to go into how important this release is, especially Terminator, for moving the Breakbeat Hardcore scene forward, heads know, new heads need to learn and snatch this up pronto. Mutated breaks battling it out with deep, dark and euphoric atmosphere, sinister breakbeat funk that is untouchable. Classic to the core. A previously unreleased mix of Terminator can be found here https://www.discogs.com/Goldie-The-Alchemist-The-Best-Of-1992-2012/release/4347524.
This is a really difficult EP to review. I think there is no question that this release was extremely important, released at just the right time when happy hardcore had just about burnt itself out and UK dance was at crossroads. This release pushed us along a more darker road towards what was to become jungle and darker D & B rhythms. A trailblazer that set the stall out and gave us a taste of what was to come. Personally I think it is one of the most influential pieces of vinyl of my generation. The four tracks featured here paved the way for what in my opinion is one of the best albums of all time - Timeless. Terminator, Knowledge, and Sinister are all truly excellent. Above all though, I do love this raw, unpolished version of Kemistry. This version is a much earlier version than the on the CD release of 95, and also different to the VIP version on the vinyl album. That said, Diane's vocals suit the track perfectly. She is sorely missed that's for sure. One track I would love to see released on vinyl is the version that's on the Timeless CD. As far as I know, it's not available on vinyl anywhere, but I live in hope of one day being able to spin my favourite Goldie track on vinyl. The reason I say this EP is difficult to review is this - no one can question its importance. That is beyond question - But has it really stood the test of time? Listening to what is being released today, this EP does sound a little dated. If there is one EP that deserves to be remastered, it's this one. A 2016 remaster of Terminator would do the trick. All that aside, if your are after a slice of the origin, the start of things, the seed that grew into a mighty oak, then look no further. A true, true, classic release. RIP Diane, you had the voice of an angel. Considering the tragedy with Kemi, and also Diane's passing, a very bitter sweet recording, but definitely an essential one.
When he says happy hardcore I wonder if he means uplifting hardcore stuff ie pianos etc etc
Already been said, but yes Happy shitty Hardcore didn't take hold until mid 93ish.
...eh? 'Terminator' has aged very well. Unique things usually do. Still sounding fresh to my ears, the other tracks not so much. By the way dude, happy hardcore didn't really exist when this record came out.
Erm always love what you have to say and I know that you are a MHDZ aficionado - however no reappointment of Terminator is required, as the mix down arrangement & sonic agression can't really be bettered for the time (1992) - it was recorded and mixed & mastered in a full blown studio with major panels (with uncle Rob) - a remaster and reissue would be simply for the sake of it. My OG copy still sounds like it can strip paint off the walls whist practicing voodoo - extreme track for the time. peace & love
Happy Hardcore was just getting going then I would say...
Ditto all below ground breaking tunes way ahead off its time, I'm lucky to have white label test press in my collection 10/10
Still pushing. Here there's a soul. Happy to have a pristine copy. 5/5
Darkside trips
One of the all time classics
thumbs up x about a million, lol! there should be a special "Spinal Tap" rating option for epic ep's like this - definitely an 11 out of 5 :-)))
sinister, wot a track!!!!
Recent interview with Goldie explained the whole "Time stretch" breaks in Terminator. He was in a studio and they had the classic Eventide H3000.... He ran sum breaks through it and the result being the pitched up bit still in key breaks!!! Terminator was born!! Im on the look out for a H3000 as the possibilities could be deadly....
Another classic anthem. Way ahead of it's time and full of innovative ideas. It still sounds incredibly Sci-Fi, dark and eerie to this day. I seriously want a copy, but it isn't going to be cheap. Is there a repress available please?
Please make a reissue after 20 years!
Terminator, along with a select few tunes from the era, we're thinking Demon's Theme, Here Comes the Drums, really gave the UK hardcore sound a credible twist. purged of the horrifically cheddar-infested hyperbolic happy e-motionalism that had ecumenically crept into the rave scene, this tune indisputably heralded the development of what we have come to know as, and love as jungle/drum and bass. Indeed, is it any wonder that the scene spawned from dark records such as this produced some of the most innovative music of the milieu? One need solely examine the rave corpus to vindicate my point...
I largely agree with you, and certainly love the tunes you referenced, but would also like to argue that while jungle and even more so drum n bass moved away from the cheesier elements of hardcore, these two scenes also became fairly boring. Drum n Bass is all too often over produced and lacking in flavour. I'm a big hip hop fan and maybe that's why I love the sampling used by Hyper on Experience, Acen etc. Hardcore got too cheesy, true, but drum n bass just got plain dull. The roots of this music were in parties.
My brother (Boogie D) who is more of a hip hop head than a drum'n'bass head told me there was a metalheads record in the local second hand shop,i finally got off my ass and checked the place out.Getting home and sticking it on i was instantly taken back to early the 90's rave scene however listening to terminator was a moment of clarity,no wonder Goldie went on to produce his Timeless debut album.All the constituent parts are there,but with a rougher edge.An amazing find in a second hand shop that hasn't just resurrected my faith in drum 'n' bass but record collecting in general.there are still classics out there to be dug.
What can you say about this one, well... it's a legend no less. This was groundbreaking stuff when it came out in late '92, with nothing like it around, except maybe some of the Reinforced stuff. Sampling the classic Terminator movies (1 & 2) and combining the samples with some futuristic beats and sounds, delivered some of the finest hardcore action yet heard and really introduced to us what was later to be known as Jungle and Drum & Bass. The production was unbelivable, giving us probably the first taste of gradual beat pitchshifting, with the tempo of the breakbeat staying the same, and the pitch changing drastically. It was amazing to hear and really inspired the whole breakbeat production community, everybody went on and tried to emulate this, with some very mixed results. One of the best IMO being "Journey From The Light" by 4 Hero (who had tought Goldie everything he knew) and DJ SS on the brilliantly ruff "The Pulse (Darkside Mix)". The three other tracks on this EP are no slouches either, with "Sinister" being one of my all time favorites. It's so incredibly ruff and cool and hasn't really aged a day since it came out, it's so futuristic. "Knowledge" takes the formula used for "Terminator" and basically takes it to another and more manic level, giving us more of a hardcore rave feel, but still using some of the innovative ideas such as pitchshifting. Last but by no means least we have "Kemistry", a track which soothes you and drives you mad at the same time. A very emotional track which Goldie dedicated to the late DJ Kemistry (RIP), which he was dating at the time. It has one of the longest and most ambient endings of a hardcore tune I've heard, with the vocals of Diane Charlemagne calming us down with the words "Coming down, coming, coming..." A legendary EP which has stood the test of time incredibly well and will continue to amaze, excite and inspire in the future. "That terminator is out there..."
100% agree
actually...many believe this record had timestretching in it..but really it was just manual pitch-shifting on the drums using outboard processing...people later tried to recreate the effects using timestretching in their samplers which created a whole different ethos in itself.

An original Hardcore anthem. Inspired by London's Rage club this EP features 4 excellent tunes. The lead cut Terminator was a genre defining tune and has one of the first examples of pitch-shifted breakbeats.
