Can't really share the appreciation of the previous reviewer here. The A side has this long intro after which a somewhat interesting, semi break beatish percussion is introduced, but what kills it for me is this unbearable melody which sounds as if it was made on two guitar strings. And it gets on your nerves fast, especially because once it enters, it never leaves. So for approximately five minutes you've got nothing but bleak arrangements and a hardly tolerable lead melody. Compared to most goa trance anno 1997, this is forgettable.
Trip On Nexus, the B side track, is a tad more interesting, venturing into (as already stated) downtempo waters, with traces of trance pads and soft melodies, with broken beats. Nothing to change your perception of psychedelic trance music, it is a worth while listen. And make that one listen. There has been break beat goa trance far better than this around the time (Boris Blenn, Funkopath, Endora, Somaton, Synchro), far better than this.
Final verdict: must have it all collectors ought to buy this regardless of what I write, while the rest of you should pick it up if you see it used in the 50 cent bargain bin. There are many great and truly neglected 12'' from the hey day of goa trance, I suggest you head for those first.

Wicked duo this one, mostly unknown to the mass of goa trancers, except to some weird collectors like me maybe.. The ep is very odd, quite interesting i can say. A side is bouncing and groovy while B-side is an exploration into the unknown, deep ambient with a touch of breakbeat and trance. A very long intro with dreamy synths/pads and I can really imagine the duo floating while making this tune!
Quite interesting for an ambient set or the intro of a trance one.
