Peel enthused about DJ Kaos' 'Hold Me Now' (which sampled Chicago's 'Hard To Say I'm Sorry') on his December 1996 (FSK) show:

"But this could very easily be, well I could say the record of the decade, but it would be a very silly thing to say, but it's certainly is a late contender for the record of the year for me, and there's not much I can tell you about it, beyond the fact, it's by Kaos and if you're a Chicago fan, you may find this interesting."

The record was one of his selections for the Peelenium 1996. He also included DJ Kaos' 'Go Mental' as one his recommended records of the month in March 2003 (Peel's Record Box), with 'Morse Code' following in the next month's list (see April 2003 (Peel's Record Box)). Peel also played various pseudonym records by Kyriacou including Waxman's Heaven which used the sample of Belinda Carlisle's Heaven Is A Place On Earth.
