Some classic Aubrey techno magic hidden on this under the radar techno double-pack.

A rather overlooked double pack of tunes on a label forgotten by virtually anybody who has ever visited a club. The name of the artist and the release title go hand in hand though. The music tends to sound a tad alien and the flight factor is almost guaranteed, while the entertainment vote will vary, depending on who listens.
Basically, the artist delivers seven pretty much disjointed and indipendent tracks, where each one has this freely floating feel to it. There are no emphasized climaxes or instant classics or club hits, these are just mid tempoish techno tunes done very well. Nothing over the top, but with plenty tricks, easy going melodies and spaced out sounds to keep you interested.
Though I'd definitely recommend listening to this at home rather than spinning this stuff in clubs (mind you, during those hours when it's time to decrease the intensity level, these come in handy), that just might be the issue here. First of all, due to the somewhat spacey aspect of the music and the voyagesque message it delivers, it can be frustrating to just sit back and enjoy the ride if you have to get up and change vinyl sides approximately every six minutes. The effect would have been greater if the lot was released as a mini CD or something. Anyways, those are only minor glitches, and being a vinyl junkie, I do not mind. In addition to that, nothing I said can tarnish the fact that these are seven solid tunes, with the dance floors in mind or not. Be not mistaken though, there is nothing here your life could not go on without, so if you see this in the bargain bin, I see no reason why you should not pick it up. Otherwise...
Favorite tracks are the title track, due to its moderate futuristic and Axis like feel and sound, and Slide, just because it kicks along so well!
