I bought this album on CD some time ago. All I can say about it is that the sound quality was very poor (the music came out of mainly the left speaker/headphone). I exchanged it the day after I bought it.

Juan returns with another mainly housey mix, quite a few vocals. Some true jems to found on the mix, its the sort of CD where you are guaranteed to have never heard the tunes before because they are so underground, which begs the question what the hell is Hatiras "spaced invader" doing on this mix? - the cheesy remix at that!! It seems out of place, but maybe it was mixed before the tune was played at every nightclub round the country by "DJ dave doubledecks". Appart from this anomoly, the tunes are superb. The mixing is ok-ish, but the thing I like with this mix is that it is raw, and has a real street vibe just like the Detroit underground scene demands - no room for robots, its all about taking a street level approach. What I am getting at is that some mixes are a bit bodge, but considering Juan invented the word "Techno", and most would argue invented the music itself, he is more than let off! Get the triple vinyl if you can, coz I bet a fiver it will be deleted shortly..
