How was this released in 2000? Is this a collection of dub plates from 1991 that were never released till 2000? Tracks like "Black Avenger" and "Condor to Mellorca" sound like Dutch Hardcore or UK 'Ardkore from 1991. "Detached" is a track that was played in Jeff Mills Live from The Liquid Room which I think was released in 1995. So if these were never released till 2000, then that would make sense.

The gem on this one for me is "Time After Space", stick it one and be in a trip for a long time

Condor To Mallorca is truly the ethereal journey the title suggests. Those inspiration key strikes backed with excellent calypso-esque percussive programming that yield finally to the kickdrum. Then the second 'string plucking' element arrives and this piece takes on a more sinister form.
A strong opening to this EP of troubling musical themes.

Time After Space is a particularly special record. I enjoy most Jeff Mill's ability to create a feeling like there has just been some cosmic disturbance when this song is on. His use of tension and sparse minimalism is inspiring.

Detached moves me in a way I found perhaps with only some if his most special mixtures.

Avenger simply polishes you off with percussive frenzy and an ebb end flow of those stiff key stabs.

A special record that moves through many of the broader themes in Jeff Mill's work...not sparing the unique and potent results of each individual piece.

A must find for fans of Jeff Mills i/m/h/o.
