One of many criminally underappreciated releases on Laurent Ho's labels. B2 is the most typically Joshua-sounding track, albeit one of his better efforts. B1 is a bit of a psychedelic frenzy laden with various mechanical sounds and a kickdrum which wanders out of sync quite a lot to great effect. A1 is by far the best thing Joshua has done or likely ever will do. It consists mainly of a kickdrum drowned in massive bursts of white noise, with various bits of percussion and the occasional atmospheric loop. The white noise constantly morphs and wraps around the surrounding sounds in a rather brilliant way. Quite interesting too how close the track is to the sound adopted by quite a lot of dutch gabber today, after the scene's faux-industrial revolution.
