Macrocosm - Beautifully timeless live machines run, love the predator style clicks in this, make it even more super sinister.
Well done Mike, it's almost vintage ⚡️

Still sounding awesome 20 years later... Repress copies (from 2006) are still available from the R&S Records webshop!

Macrocosm is probably the best Acid track ever made . Didn't hear better one still . Live act masterpiece.

Yeah! That's pretty good actually, Mike. Can't believe it was 1994.

While the B-side track "Oxycute" is a bit more along the lines of Dred's work on Rephlex - very raw 606 & 707 drum sounds, chaotic sound of three or more 303s competing for attention - the A-side track "Macrocosm" is in a fairly different mould.

It's fair to say that "Macrocosm" is more slick, more sophisticated in its production, and to a lot of people (myself included) that should be a bad thing. But in fact the opposite is true. Mike Dred manages to imbue the track with an intensity that's irresistible, as it seems to build and build and build throughout even though no more layers are being added. The cliché of being "lost in the track" is an appropriate one here.
