A wonderful EP from the FSOL boys which includes the soothing classic "mountain goat" and the non-LP b-side "sky-scraper".

Anyone watching the good old "Predator" movie from 1987 will instantly recognise the aliens' snarling and growling sounds, and the eerie music that marks the predators presence. Yes, FSOL started "Liquid insects" with straight samples from the movie. Considering what they released under the FSOL alias, Liquid insects is surprisingly more darker and sinister, scary stuff.

This is with no doubt one of the most desired ambient techno singles ever. 'Liquid Insect' starts as a combination of dub & experimental elements, and then switch to a techno with sinister atmosphere. The way they insert the vocal samples in a dark atmosphere with dub influences is simply amazing. The listener can also hear, from time to time, some creature sounds, as if the sound was recorded on the wild nature. 'Mountain Goat' is one of the all-time ambient techno masterpieces. These omni present nature sounds and the hypnotic dub influences seem to go perfectly with the epic bass line and the amazing melody sequences of something like a harp simulation & a backing flute solo. Both tracks belong to the tracklist of the magnificent album ‘Tales Of Ephidrina’, which is not the case of ‘Sky – Scraper’.
