What happened to real techno like this? Two words: Top Quality

I first heard this on a mix by Chris Parker on the Colin Faver show KISS 100 FM. It took me years to track this down but thanks to Ollie (wink wink) I finally got the I.D.! This is one serious journey. It lifts, shifts, pounds and gets more intense as the ride finally reaches its destination! Beautifully intense both at the same time. Ps don't forget the two other tracks. +++ Acid sounds like something Mr. Ceephax Andy Jenkinson may have been influenced by? And Asymtote Des Schlafes is very much worthy of a listen! ;)

I remember laurent garnier playing "balance" in a set in 1994 between a clementine-track by luke slater and joey beltram´s "drone". never heard something like that before. this was my first techno-record.

When Colin Dale spun this out of Cyan's Peacekeeper at Eurobeat back in 1993 I was blown away. No one had really heard this sort of thing before. Could it really be techno? It was fast (150+ bpm) but tuneful and 'intelligent'. The intro is long and melodic, just like 4 degrees only harder, and then in sweeps this monstrous bassline with a multitude of finely tweaked layers .... I still play it today and nothing sounds the same. Total quality.
