Imagine buying this 'blind' as they say and hearing the first track 1. Phase 4 ....... If you continued on from the first track then batten down the hatches for an immense journey through the agony and ecstasy of one mans mind via technology... Better than any anti-depressant prescribed by any head shrinker...My own personal quote would go something like this " Don't shrink... Expand " ! .... Mission translated as a complete musical aural science...

Not only Waveform Transmission Vol. 1 is one of the best techno albums ever made, it's also a blueprint of everything that had to come afterwards in techno. This album has influenced tons of techno DJ's and producers. But the beauty of this album is that it will never sound dated at all. There is a lot of diversity to be found on this album yet most of the songs are pretty pumping and straight forward. My favourite track will always be Berlin, it just has everything that I like about techno because it manages to be very hypnotic and brutal at the same time. And brutal is an understatement here: rage, distortion, unpolished 303 and 909 madness and excellent breaks. The charm of the track lies in the naivety, which I really miss in today's techno. If you want to know why they call Jeff Mills "the wizard", you simply have to listen to this album.

In 1992 the cheesey rave scene was taking over the UK, or if you were lucky you found a club that was playing chicago style house music which at least had some soul. Meanwhile in a darkened room somewhere Jeff Mills was tweaking the hell out of the knobs on his drum machine. Bringing this home one day from Eastern Bloc records was revolutionary, suddenly the dance scene had a new direction. This record must have influenced countless disillusioned DJs and producers. It's a deep and industrial workout with very occasional (perhaps unintentional) melodic snippets. Like his DJ sets, its raw and honest, you know what you are getting: and if it's not a headache it's a trip through a world where the machines took over a long time ago ...

Punishing intense techno at its rawest-
nearly 20 years old but still the sound of the future, some classic tracks from the master of minimal- These tracks are what a suicide assasin robot from the planet axis is thinking.Danger_meltdown_ error
error error error-_reboot.Jeff Mills has the ability to say more with a drum beat and a sound effect than any musician alive today- listening to this album the whole way through is a brutal and dark journey-reboot Highly recommended to anyone who wants to know what techno is about intelligent _subversive and dangerous!

One of my all time favorites, and living proof of how quality surpassess the tests of time and constantly oncoming modern trends!
The opening four tracks, which basically means half of the album, move at supersonic speed, portraying agressive Detroit techno from back in the day, mercilessly rushing forward while incinerating dance floors, listeners' perception of electronic music, you name it! Jerical, Changes Of Life and Berlin are synonims for hard techno which patched up generation gaps and reunited us under a unique flag of a techno nation stronghold!
Basically, true to the form audio wizardry from one of the genre's most prominent figures hitting you hard at maximum velocity, while the brutal and unpolished sounds of these eight tracks won't leave you flat. You can hate on it, you can love it 'till you die, you can cherish or dismay in disbelief, but you won't passively listen through. It will effect you, in one way or the other.
One of the finest examples that I own of how skilled manipulation of machines can and will provoke moods and or altered states of mind. Hard, loud and repugnant to compromises of any kind or sacrificeing its artistic speech in favor of wide spread appreciation.

This Record in my opinion was and remains a revolution in dance music.
I will allways remember the first time i've heard this in the shop
when it came out.
It contained a new soundscape that stunned me.
Jeff Mills re-invented Techno with this and set the pace
for all the hardcore Techno to come.
The mixture of highly distorded drum machine sounds and synths
with punchy and groovy rhythms created a new vision of techno and opened a door path to a whole new style.
