This album maybe a collection of Ian O'Brien's hard to find and unreleased material and remixes...But! don't think this is just random throw away collection of tracks strung together released just for fans!! This is a collection of high quality music that perfectly complements Ian's amazing ability creating and fusing (Future)Jazz, Downtempo, and Techno.

The album has 3 remixes reworked by Ian(trks 6,7,8). 2 collaboration tracks, one with Los Hermanos(trk4), and one with Super-A-Loof/Kirk Degiorgio (trk9). And also Ian's own rare tracks(1,2,3,5) are finally here together in one place. Ian O'brien showcase his skill and music dexterity with his unique way using complex drum programming, gorgeous funk-soul rhythms. and plenty of hi-tech swirling melodies fusing Detroit styled techno with plenty of electronic soul along with his amazing use of real jazz - all in a futuristic way, and with no album fillers here, just great music that is always absorbing and engaging from start to finish. Even the remixes are fantastically done with care, creativity, and thought.

Excellent!!
