And now what this is really about! Namely this Ltd. release of some early tracks found during early Rephlex/IDM heyday..
Some history: before signing to Rephlex, Bogdan released a few 100 trax(yes,it's true)on .mod(files)sites, where u could just put files to be used for others/shared (internet copyright being less strict then)by other electronic (amateur)musicians. Monotonik was one of several, since storage was small in those (90s)days, they frequently linked to FTP pages. Agent30, karl, Ice Climber were some of the most seen.
His homepage reinforced the whole Atari/gameboy aesthetic..

Thank god, some mention of people commonly playing this record at the wrong speeds! I hear it all the time. I have no idea how one can listen to this at 45 and think there's anything right about it....even for bogdan who is in the higher range of BPMs alot of the time. It's 33 1/3 with one side at 45.

This record is definitely a 33. But, track 4 sounds so good at 45, you cant deny the fact: that this can be oh too possible from the creative genius we are talking about here. (1 side being 45) I got to meet the man himself, on one of his rare sightings in SO_CAL. But why would anybody ask? Just like Aphex Twin and the universal indicator records, .....who cares. Advice for all collectors: Just listen to the music, (at the speed you like). That's what the artist will tell you!

I've downloaded various tracks from this album for mixtape purposes many times over. And every time I get a song recorded at the wrong speed, sounding like the Chipmunks speaking in tongues over an Adaadat release.

Bogdan's very limited edition romp through DNB destruction is mastered and cut to be played at 33RPM. NOT 45! While there has been discussion as to whether or not track 4 is intended to be 45rpm (it has one side of wax all to itself, and there is an apparent tradition of DNB 12"s having the b-side cut at the faster speed), a cursory comparison of the tracks at both speeds should make it clear what the intended speed was.

For further proof, download the old tracker file of "Reach For Your Lives"...

Just put this brilliant puppy on and imagine all the intricately programed melodies and percussion dancing in invisible space.
