Just got this after recently re-discovering and buying up u-Ziq previous releases that I somehow managed to miss - inc this excellent EP. A release which was probably ahead of its time when originally released back in 97, which is strangely underrated considering there's not a single weak track or filler on the CD! Music is a great combination of modern braindance with a experimental intelligent mish-mash of Idm, drum and drill n bass, abstract-ambient with plenty of U-Ziq knob twiddling tech wizardry and even the occasional use of jazz. U-Ziq again brings his excellent synth and drum programming skills with his unique ability to bring harmony even to the hardest razor-edged sounds, while also adding a cool and combination of fun and intelligence to the ears with interesting twists and turns that can change the moods to each track, all with good effect. Certainly not the usual repetitive metallic hard-edged sound usually associated with the Idm-drum/drill n' bass genre. A great forward thinking release back in 97, and even today(2014) that still manages to impress sounding very modern, experimental and clever 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
