"Underground" indeed! In 1996 American hard house and Chicago style techno was deep into the 2nd year of proliferating the Scene as a reaction to mainstream appeal rave and European trance.

With "Spirit of the Underground", Germany's K-Tel-like monstrosity ZYX manages to capture a rising movement still basically in its infancy. What's offered here is a well-mixed smorgasbord of obscure, but forward-facing sub-genres of future techno, acid, hard house, proto-tech house, dark techno, progressive hard trance, minimal deep house, etc., that all works well to produce a rhythmic, pounding, driving atmosphere appealing to techno heads craving a taste of that which is unique, distinctive, and out of the ordinary.

Standouts include WOODY McBRIDE, RND TECHNOLOGIES, DAN EBEN, AMPHASIS, etc., with the bulk of the tracks from #3 through to #10 achieving the rise to the climactic peak during the middle of the disc. Also of note is the inclusion of rarities by JOHN ACQUAVIVA as CAPPIO BROS. (with P.Mintsoulis & G.Zwarich), DJ SNEAK & J.WERNER as 3 FS to bring the exhausting proceedings to another euphoric climax to leave you wanting more!

A worthwhile acquisition that still holds up surprisingly well in 2018! Unfortunately, no other volumes followed, so for this one and only anthology: seek and ye shall be rewarded with THE SPIRIT OF THE UNDERGROUND!
