Despite infiltrating the radar of wider acceptance with appearances on Rush Hour, Planet E and Bosconi, The Oliverwho Factory remain a resolutely underground operation who refuse to sacrifice the sonic principles of their early material on their own Madd Chaise Inc label. That's probably why the Detroit duo appealed to the Dolly imprint, with Before a booming induction into this trusty 12" label. The distinct grit and relentless energy that's a trademark of The Oliverwho Factory is present and correct on both versions of "Before" with the A Side "original mix" almost crumbling under the weight of the booming bassline. Shonie C's vocal provides some nice contrasting light here, whilst the "deep mix" uses it more sparingly as release from the heavily pressurised jack hammer drum programming.
