Chasers is one of the sweetest tracks ever. Like RAW wrote below, you can really feel the depth of experimentation and innovation evident in this composition. There's a fullness and a wonky funkiness to it that work perfectly: minimally maximal. It's like Larkin gave it it his all on this one, sitting around his room trying everything on every machine at his disposal. I think what this song does better than most is deliver a true piece of artistic creation from beginning to end. You can hear a lot of new ideas, a type of deep layering that seldom exists today. The true greatness of this track, however, even as but a part of Larkin's mighty oeuvre, is it's inimitability and stark "Larkin-ness". It's one of those tracks I won't hear for a while, buried in that section of my shelf, and then the memorable tune will creep up on me and I just have to hear it. I'll flip through Azimuth thinking it might be on there, notice a few production similarities in the rolling beat of "Track", and then remember: it's Chasers!

Thank you, Kenny Larkin. Your music is some of the best, and continues to be extremely relevant to me until this day.

To me it's all about the Chasers track. Odd complicated rhythm and filtered and resampled synths chords bringing the real futuristic sound kenny was doing at the time. Like his Xirtam and Plink Plonk remixes and Warp releases. I always imagined he experimented with his machines like he did working as an engineer in the army. The shit is like a very minimal hard techno track that doesn't do anything for me. To bad Kenny lost it the last 10 years.

Deason's track is one of the most hypnotising, repetitive techno tracks - from that era - ever. I used to spin it in all my Detroit (& house!) Dj-sets. Methodology: Have it mixed in, let it play & play & play (... & play ...). Hear the sound getting fuller every minute, feel it grow! Don't touch it and definitely don't mix before the break at the end of the track. Watch the crowd when the bassdrum kicks in again. Both, dj & dancefloor are now fully satisfied. U may mix that other track now or finalise your set and leave the rest to the other guy programmed that night ;)
