There are releases sometimes which despite not being the original release on the first/original label/country and all that, are being just so much nicer to collect and play compared to the original which everyone is searching for and hence the high prices......and this is one of them. The Strategic Repulse of Ploy on this EP is pretty much the same as the original Strategic mix but the Strategic Repulse has this superb intro and slow build up towards the 4x4 beat which makes this a much nicer track to listen and play, or for that part even open a DJ set with. For me the stand out track and a serious hidden gem though is The Orb's (Battersea Was An Island Of Mud Mix) which is just another fantastic freaky ambient classic in The Orb's signature style and everyone has seemed to overlook.
And... for the coloured vinyl freaks well yes this one is regarding that part also a great to have item. 5 out of 5 for me on this one!

Eleye does the trick for me, so underground, so underground, so underground.. Never had so many layers and layers of undescribable feelings inspired by a song

The difference between the NSC & D&M masters of the UR mix (I didn't have time to check the A side tracks but I guess they would be the same) is quite a lot. The NSC master is fairly bright (some might say very slightly harsh around the 2K-4K area) with everything above 2K boosted compared to the D&M which unsurprisingly has more warmth in the bottom end from 200..ish HZ right down to 20HZ as well as smoother in the upper frequencies which at a guess is from tape saturation. Also I dare say that I can hear that the D&M version went through a multi band compressor and the NSC didn't, I checked via listening as well as running them both through frequency analysers & RMS meters.
Obvisously D&M is known for its warm masters and listening back to back with the original NSC master is a great example of this.
If you really love this record I would go so far as to say you really need both versions as (to me) they are significantly sonically different from one another.

Glorious chunk of delicious yellow vinyl which still gets regular plays from me despite being more than two decades old. This is a timeless track with the only version worthy of attention being the near-12-minute UR mix. This track used to sell for a king's ransom on GEMM, so if you can get it as a bargain here I would jump at the chance.

Is this a 2013 re-cut or just a repress of the 2005 D&M remaster? Maybe it should be merged with the 2005 remaster.

the track "eleye" alone is already worth purchasing this record,
an absolute underground classic, it does not get realer and deeper than this - MASTERPIECE
