This is a lovely EP with pretty, icy melodies and crunchy idm beats as of the era.
It's amusing to note, though, that the beat in "Transalpin" is a chopped-up, slowed-down sample from AFX's "Laughable Butane Bob".

This EP is amazing. It's some of Thaddi and Christian's best work. Although both sides are supposed to be played at 45 RPMs, I think side A sounds best at 33. It makes the two tracks sound a bit more melancholic. It also adds a bit of a darker tone to the EP.
