Just got this after recently re-discovering and buying up u-Ziq previous releases that I some how managed to miss - inc this excellent EP. A release, which was probably ahead of its time when originally released back in 97, and strangely very underrated considering there's not a single weak track or filler here. Just a great combination in modern braindance electronic music with a clever experimental intelligent mish-mash across Idm, drum and drill n bass, abstract-ambient, and plenty of U-Ziq style of knob twiddling tech wizardry, with even the occasional use of jazz. A fusion of genres that wonderfully work together when and where used. U-Ziq again brings his excellent synth and drum programming skills with that unique ability to bring harmony even to the hardest of sounds, while also adding a cool and sophisticated combination of fun and intelligence to the ears with many interesting twists and moods to each track, and with good effect too! This certainly is not the usual repetitive metallic hard-edged sound usually associated with the Idm-drum/drill n' bass genre. This is a much more matured fun experimental listen with some excellent twist & turns in its razor edged, yet thoughtful, sound! A great forward thinking release back in 97, and even today(2014) it still manages to impress sounding very modern, experimental, andcleaver even when compared to experimental Idm braindance music of today(2014)...A release well worth picking up esp if into the more interesting experimental side of Idm, drill/drum bass electronica. 5/5
