This is a beautiful body of work, influenced by all of the greats, Metroplex, Transmat, KMS, B12, Likemind, GPR. Top quality techno, a future classic that you'd regret passing by.

I had really been looking forward to a full-length John Shima album, but this is somewhat disappointing. It's decent music, but it takes zero chances; no track stands out. They're all kind of the same. It's just a little too consistent and predictable for my tastes, and I say this as a big Firescope fan.

Edit - 9 Aug 2020 - I relented and ordered the album on vinyl. I do really enjoy it, especially side 3. This record fits nicely in the Firescope family and is great for coding. I still find the music a tad on the conservative side, but the vinyl is nice-looking, if somewhat noisy.

Absolutely fantastic release from John on beautiful vinyl with amazing artwork from the Firescope Records crew. Essential.
