Aquabon (remix) is a misspelling/respelling of Aquabahn, since it's a remix of that track which appears on Drexciya 4. The vinyl version contains another misspelled track title so probably a bit of sloppy proofreading on this release

Largely a compilation of tracks from earlier singles with some new tracks:
Track 1 is a remix of Depressurisation from Deep Sea Dweller
Track 2 is the same as that featured on Bubble Metropolis
Track 5 is an extended version of Aquabahn from The Unknown Aquazone and is probably a misspelling on the sleeve.
Track 6 also seems to be a misspelling as it is a remix of Dead Man's Reef from the CD version of this release.
Track 7 is the same as that featured on Aquatic Invasion
Track 8 is just a retitling of Danger Bay from Bubble Metropolis
Track 9 is the same as that featured on Bubble Metropolis

Unlike later work of Drexciya this album contains mostly hardkicking dancefloor killer beats alongside sick aquatic electronic elements to create amazing electro. Tracks like Living On The Edge and Aquabon contain great elements of funk. They are two of my favorites on this record. Other tracks like Bubble Metropolis and Wavejumper can also be seen as classics. Wavejumper's ongoing rhythm, the dark vocal and dangerous electronics create this amazing track.

I was lucky to get myself a sealed copy of the original pressing through Discogs. It is worth every penny I can tell you. Get this peace of electro history if you can!

These guys were truly in a league of their own in terms of creating electro that sounded like it had been beamed straight from outer space. Absolutely pearless with their amazingly futuristic vision and roboticly funkatastic rhythms. This disc is a very worthy introduction and probably a much more ecomnomic solution if your after their earlier stuff since the prices for their vinyle releases have sky-rocketed since the death of one of the founding members. A true masterpiece!
