This one is the first ever released by Doof and it kindof shows: musically speaking he was still searching his way back then. There are some interesting ideas but overall it isn't really anything special. B1 is my favorite here, but even that one isn't really classic material. So again, for a collector this is of high value since it's Doof's first release but musically speaking don't expect much...

PS just a repy to jazzliscious: indeed this particular EP is kindof the border territory between goatrance and the acid scene, after all most UK artists took massive influences from the acid scene before making their own sound. But check out Doof's later releases (Double Dragons for example)and you will clearly see the difference with techno :)

Just what the HELL makes Goa trance anyway? I have a hard time using discriptions I don't understand! Whereas I don't see this as "Goa trance", I do see it as some of the most innovative, hypnotic early techno I've ever heard. I mean Goa is an area of India where I'm fairly certain the natives don't listen to techno music. There's a lot of American dissidents who gave up capitalism there, and techno has nothing to do with giving up capitalist concepts. In fact, its full embrace of capitalist concepts is what I feel ruined it! It's all about making money now, so how can anything be called "Goa"? OK, well, that's just my outspoken opinion - back to this release. Aside from my opinion of misnaming such excellent techno, this IS an EXCELLENT release! I judge techno on the level of musicianship and how detailed it is and this is very detailed! Deep production in all the tracks with varying degrees of multi-faceted styles. "The Nagual" has lots going on and actually just as easily could be considered "acid". Lots of analog synths and DEEP layering of sounds makes for a very enjoyable listening experience. Perhaps among the most innovative techno in my collection, but totally under-rated and scarcely known, this stuff needs to be re-released and actually promoted! But please - promote what it really is - if you call it "Goa", no wonder nobody listens to it! This is FINE QUALITY techno! Now get out of that trance you're in.
