A classic with a classic sample. That's the case of "Celestial Highways", whose sample of "Cosmic Courrier" (Atkins, Fehlmann, Maurizio) helps to turn it in an incredible sound experience. This Gerald Mitchell's deep techno tune has lovely synths, textures, chords and windy effects. The growing sequence of notes helps to complete the harmony of this full atmospheric masterpiece. "Dream Traveler" is more minimal, but also has a slow mood, textures, and a kind of a submarine noise simulation from time to time that makes us imagine a deep & ethereal voyage. "Astral Ancestors" combines full synth effects and textures in a spacey and discrete electro bass.

As a tribute to Juan Atkins for inviting him on his legendary label, Gerald Mitchell sampled the seminal Cosmic Courier, produced in 1993 by Atkins itself with Thomas Fehlmann & Moritz von Oswald. This track is absolutely wonderful, very deep and minimal but uplifting at the same time. It announces the Los Hermanos sound that Mitchell was about to create three years later with Rolando Rocha.
