Absolutely seminal record. ˋblack is the number´ is based on a sample of ˋremember´ by Gino Soccio.

In the Bush is the definitive techno tune - classy, driving machine funk. You can mix this with just about anything and it will sound perfect

I remember this really clearly.

ax-11, ax-12 and ax-13 all came in to my local record shop on the same day. I bought Humana and was pissed off that I couldn't get this. Bought it in the end. Everyone had a copy. Every track got thrashed!~

Black is the Number and In the Bush are two of the best techno tunes ever produced.
