This one will likely not be remembered as a milestone.
Downshifter is a downtempo affair with broken beats and a not-unpleasant Acid line coupled to a rather annoying melody. Forgettable.
Disconnected is a monotonous techno journey that could work very well in the mix... except for the fact that the mastering is atrocious: after the first minute, it becomes saturated to a point it is barely listenable.
Lonely In A Crowded Room is the keeper, really: a hypnotic techno trip, deeper than the rest and with a mastering that nearly does it justice.
Deep Curve is again nice and hypnotic, though too monotonous to be exciting, even in a mix. It is butchered by the mastering again -- it sounds as though the record had been through a sandpaper treatment.
Not sure what went wrong, here. It seems odd that a professional would have let this slip through quality control.
