Superb pair of tunes with nice use of the "Dynamo City" break as part of the percussion.

"Soul Mantra" - a nice vocal line, which on first listen, I thought should belong more on a hippy-dippy quasi-Buddhist Goa Trance record. Then, the more I thought about it, isn't it just a great way to live, irrespective of your chosen lifestyle? Possibly the most uplifting and positive spoken vocal since the intro to "Jesus Loves The Acid". Great techno/acid trance beats as well.

"Black Star Rising" sounds particularly good through headphones - there are some quiet sounds, panned slightly to the right and left, which you may miss when playing through speakers, but are revealed much more clearly through headphones. Nice attention to detail, that :)

Underrated 12" and well undervalued price-wise - but there's nothing wrong with the latter of course - f*** Discogs capitalists, oi oi!

One of the best tunes period ! Prolekult !!

Zero Difference - Fuck the vote - This resonates true still universally in most countries now and forever. Love the picture of 2 political idiots Blair and Major

"If you tend to your soul you will live and grow and in time you will achieve happiness and well being" -

That really is absolute..

Starts slow then an amazing musical trance entity begins to nourish your soul up for an age that sample keeps coming back then 4.37 a classic 303 line materializes from the essence twisting and turning until the end !

Black Star Rising another classic but takes time for that at 4.26 rocking 303 to come in and burn your brain !

Must have tune and cheap here buy buy !!!

Warning: heavy stuff in here. "Soul Mantra" has an exceptionally good buildup.

It is a shame that the ratings only go up to 5, as this record is a 6 at least.........Soul Mantra is a dark synthy number, with a great sample, and a really nice flow to it. Black star is a classic piece of formula acid techno, with super lush 303's and lovely analog drums. My copy of this tune is almost paper thin, not sure if it makes any difference to the sound quality, but I prefer fat chunky heavy vinyl. Soul mantra is also available on 'cassiopia records' with slightly better production quality, and an alternative mix, although you don't get Black star on that one. Yea man, classic acid techno that still has all of it's original charm.
