literally one of the most bizzare albums in techno genre for me.It has unique sounds and basslines that gives you a very euphoric,dramatic and futuristic feels.

A really something for everyone cd. This kind of trip hop meets techno feel almost is like a German sounding Sabres of Paradise but a bit more minimal. While cyax opens it up with a warm up slow tempo track of trip hop cyronics then throws the curveball into a minimal track that sounds like it is Jeff Samuel remixing a SAW II track from Aphex Twin. Melody is very SAW II. Ahhh the analog sounds of Brom. Funky space junk floating around whimsical at a gentle pace. Some broken beats here some nice melodies there. An idm feel around it all with plenty of nice basslines and bass. Microshopping has this landcruising carl craig vibe to it even. Memorable one there. With all the idm fans out there this one definitely gets overlooked. Was this released on warp or something it would be mentioned more often. Check out Alterism for some more minimal remixes of a few of the tracks and some b-sides. Solid music

Again and again I listened to this album when I was unsure what fits the present mood. Again and again the Hacker Myth catched me with its mostly slowing and tripping rhythmic structures and melodic arrangements sweet as candy. But in the end its the exclusive dominance of synthetic sounds carrying you to a plastified paradise that leaves you in outer space after the final track has ended. Well, producers are famous for their great skills but I think at the end of the day this album is the one that defines them fantastic musicians. Excellent.
