Electronic Pleasure is the first full-length studio album released by British electronic music group N-Trance. It was released in November 1995 and the U.S. on 1996.

Critical reception[edit]

Music & Media wrote, "The album of this group, based around Kevin O' Toole and Dale Longworth, consists mostly of high-tempo techno, although some tracks have swingbeat, jungle, ragga and hip hop influences. Gimme 1 2 3 4 5 is one of those groovy mixtures, in which the rhythm around Ricardo Da Force' (KLF) and Jerome Stokes' rapping is much looser. I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love...Again is a touching ballad with warm sax solo."[4] British magazine Music Week noted, "A mixes collection of dance styles, ranging from electro-pop to solid soul. It includes their two hits and a half dozen other tracks which could spin off as successful singles."[5]
