How could you put your name on this mess, I'm shocked a mastering engineer would have anything to do with this no less a prominent one who handles many jobs well. What an embarassment to finally present this anticipated, hallowed material in such a shameful sonic state. The longer this spin cycle of rehashed repressed digital non effort disappointment chugs on the more I come back to one sentiment: RIP Ron Murphy

Unfortunately i have to admit that this remasters sound pretty bad to my ear.

First time I heard No UFO's (D-Mix), I thought it was a new track by The Hacker.

Now I'm here on this release page, and 1985 is the release year.

Mind. Blown.

This might be my favorite of any of the original Detroit hits. It's stuff like this that makes me think that Juan Atkins was a lot more talented than May or Saunderson.

Juan was inspired by the drone of automated factories and trips down the I-96 freeway late at night, he once said in an interview.

That's why these track sound so dark and mysterious.

this is what set it off for me. i picked this up wishing and hoping that this was the ufo track that i remembered as a kid. i could feel the electricity running through me as i dropped the needle and realized what i had just come across. no ufo's triggered my need for history. classics. roots. i purchased 2 copies and thus began my search for everything i was ever exposed too from detroit radio. this record changed my life!

Hardcore electro! Dark and futuristic a la 80´s.
No softness in this record. Is he descibing a nightmare or a utopia? Macine-coded beats with icecold basslines.Chilly reverbs (clinic). And a text that brainwashes you!
Far away from today´s standards.
Enfore.

"Time Space Transmat" is one of these great productions which made this kind of music big in the mid-80ies. Juan mediates us his high-tech visions in his early tracks in an incredible way.
