The record that kicked off Dave Angel's fairly successful Rotation records. The title track starts with his usual fun techno stabs and then a jazz feel compliments the energy of the song. Care free UK techno that must have sounded like a breath of a fresh air circa 1993 after all that hardcore rave music that must have been over saturated then. This track summed up his vision for the label. As did this ep. Nocturne has Dave Angel's trademark all over it with the faster tempo detroit feel and skipping beats with very fast high hats. Memories

b side goes a bit deeper. Layered melodies repeating in a frenzy on Koookaburra. About as full on trance as Angel went. 1993 was a great year in techno. Running Man finishes the record off on an energy high. Really like the melody underneath creeping into darkness. Also light house notes that off set rave claps making this track one of most complex listens of the 1991-1995 Angel period which I really enjoy.

There is a fun, light hearted seriousness on this record that makes me look back on it fondly and still play it occasionally. Like now :)
