Overload superb example of what i call or used to call travel techno. Just flows on and on, and right over you, then takes you with it (at 1:14).

'The Incredible' on side B is pure, minimal, repetative banging, hardcore tech-noise with Chuck D's voice sampled & looped over & over, making for a kick-ass stomper.

'Overload' is a very apt title for track A, because that's what it is - an acid techno, sonic overload. Deep, psychedelic, and dark textures with screaming, whistling riffs. The 303s, synths & distant robotic "Kraftwerk" voices start off quite deep, hypnotic & subtle at first before they're turned on full steam ahead to a barrage of mayhem. The 303 bassline is wicked and competes with any that were made before or since.

This release sounded really underground at the time and underrated at that. One of the best early ESP releases IMHO, straight out of Holland!
