I cannot better the previous reviews so instead, I have a question. Is the main synth making all the crazy arsed noises in this awesome track the seminal Roland SH-101 or am I going mad? At times it sounds like something else.... Come on nerds, help me out. :o)

Vortex comes screaming straight out of Arkham Asylum: totally demented, but with a whit more wit than most of its Belgian Hardbeat cousins of the time (though blending in easily enough with them). AA side is more 'restrained', but the rawness of the acid and drum machines are reminiscent of the Trax compilations of three years prior.

Been going through all my old records recently and was pleasantly surprised when I got this one out. Synergy 1 is a quality bit of acid :) You could still rock any decent party these days with this one. Top notch. But then again you couldn't really expect anything less from these three chaps.

One of the best acid/hoover tracks, combining the party genius of Mundo Muzique, Beltram and Hawtin in FUSE mode. Mix it in with a slow builder right and it will drive people insane. What's great is also the techno-overlord voice decreeing "Vortex!" here and there -- which sounds like either "I want sex" or "phone sex".

Another important release for the history of techno. This record was more frenzied and wild than much of the techno that had come before, with a slow but steady increase in intensity as the track progesses. It is an early record in the career of both Richie Hawtin and Joey Beltram, and is also notable in that its structure has snare drums between the kicks and not on every second beat as was almost always the case at the time.
