An unusual lack of kick drums permeates this release, at least not the way we're used to hearing them: EQ'ed very subtly where they're more implied than stated but it by no means makes the devastation any less.

B1 is a relentless 16th note synth workout whereas B2 has a less hectic and more machinic assembly line feel to it, both excellent pieces. But the outstanding achievement on here is Azerbajan which is an almost overwhelming brain melting psychedelic industrial(?!) progression that rides the razors edge between Techno and full on Rhythmic Noise, and yet is completely unallied with any clichéd Techno or Industrial contrivances.

Like most of Hurens work, way ahead of its time, perhaps even a time that will never exist.
