This three tracker has enogh electrostatic and tough, reprobate techno undercurrents to last a dozen EPs. There is something very nasty about these tracks, it's as they were intentionally recorded to sound abhorrent, but in that good ol' dirty way when it feels so good to be exposed to sin...
Especially We Pray, which has medieval church choir chants sampled and layed over soaring, drubbing drum kicks. Very simple yet productive outcome, I can imagine an underground rave in a damp and abbandoned cathedral in the outskirts of Zagreb, with hundreds of rusty chandeliers providing the only source of light as the shadows of goblin statues serve the worst possible trip to the party goers. Right...
Xperience is a thundering piece as well, rolling percussion and a distorted purring sound. Nothing to talk much about though. Another typical hard techno tool by mr. Smith, a track which won't be remembered as one of his more inspired efforts, but then I guess that wasn't its initial goal anyways.
Overall, a fine DJ record, this is, given you like to play it as hard as it gets today, without venturing in the "faster harder louder" no-brain-land of schranz afficionados. We Pray is the stand out, due to its gothic elements fused with straight up hard techno.
