Killer release, one side is mostly hard distorted machine like techno, very caustic window style. The other side is what this is about, and is beautiful electro stuff. Diagram VII(80s mix) is just stunning and I can listen to this over and over again. Cover is pretty decent too, gold and reflective...5/5

Diagram VII (80's Mix) is a masterpiece of electronic music, a little pitch to an higher bpm and its at its best. That´s one of the reason i am hearing techno........ Played on one of my tape´s in ostgut in the year 1996.

On listen I thought I was listening to a lost Aphex Twin EP! The ep starts of with 3 ear crunching Idm/Braindance tracks using looped drill n bass, crunching beats, layered with dark synth patterns with some razor like electro that pierces through the industrial-techno-idm backbone. Tracks 1-3 wouldn't sound out of place from the tougher apocalyptic Idm/techno as from Aphex Twin / Polygon Window compilation 'Classics' & 'Surfing on Synewaves' albums... Tracks 4-6 change direction leaning towards a more ambient-techno/Idm approach with none of the noise grind experimental rawness of the first three tracks. Definitely a more calmer Idm-ambient-techno approach built around less harsh but softer melodic techno melodies, 4/4 looped beats, and swirling synth background ambient that's probably more in-line with Aphex Twin's 'Selected Ambient 85-92' plus 'I Care Because U Do' style of calmer ambient-Idm-techno. Its certainly a less pounding listen to the ears compared to tracks 1-3. Overall a excellent release with a very good selection of tracks showcasing both the hard, and the calmer side to D'arcangelo's style of braindance experimental music across Idm, techno, ambient, and electro which can hold its own in the Aphex ambient-braindance genre. Recommended.
