The Dave Angel mix is beyond deep...it's like three dimensional sound.

Jacob's Story, the untouched JOS track found here, is just as deep and very heavy. The bass kind of jumps out of the speakers (a bit similar to some of the Dom & Roland tracks that would come out a few years later) and snakes around the Reinforced-type breaks. I really think this one could have been the centerpiece of the JOS album.

Except for those two quality D&B trax (side A) this 12" brings one deep Detroit techno track (B side) too. 313% Juan Atkins touch in a Dave Angel mix. Oftenly forgotten so do check it out!
