Probably the best remix package in this history of techno. The echospace mix is glorious. And you have the amazing Convextion mix and the amazing emmersive dub. Add in the Moritz remix and Soulteks and there you have it. This is the best vinyl version to have too. I have the Huckaby vinyl remix and thats great too. But this has everything and this green one plays a bit better than the other colored 2x12. This is the one to have

Probably, the best "Starlight" remix: dubby and atmospheric with brilliant balance between house & techno. RIP and thanks for the music !

this is easily one of the best ever made Minimal Techno records. Agree with most of the comments: HOW deep Moritz fulfilled his Job here on the remix duty. "In Wantlist Added over 6 years ago"...

My copy has the labels on the wrong sides (the Moritz sticker is on the side with the original version)

Excellent selection of tracks and vibes. On the A-Side, we have the "Mike Huckaby S Y N T H Mix", which marches straight right from the beginning, enriched with subtle, filtered chord sequence. The jewel can be found on the B-Side, the "Intrusion Dub": Extralong evolving track with some subtle atmos from a playground or a backyard with playing kids, and while the track rises up, the chords come more and more to the front. Fantastic track to relax or to dream along. Both tracks 5 of 5 stars! Let there be Noise :-)

Juan Atkins himself told me in 1995 in Leeds that the labels were on the WRONG SIDE on this white vinyl version i.e. the Moritz mix was actually his mix anx vice versa.

does anyone else get weirded out by the percussion on the moritz mix?

One of my favourite techno releases. I suppose it's an EP by the letter of the law, although it plays out more like an album. The original Starlight is an understated Metroplex classic from 1995 but the echospace crew demonstrated that Detroit techno, so often accused of reverential retro purism, can still sound like the future.

As you'd expect from a label known for rejuvenating dub techno, the various interpretations, mostly involving Steve Hitchell or Rod Modell, may technically form a remix suite but the process calls to mind the time-honoured dub techno tactic of "reshaping" the original piece into infinity through dub techniques. There's more music at work here than simply subjecting the original parts to endless banks of delay and analogue hiss though, and most of the tracks skirt between dub techno's textural opulence and the abstract melodic futurity of classic Detroit fare.

Just about every interpretation is solid and the tracklisting is sequenced to form a nicely undulating journey. As an ambient DJ my personal favourite is the Echospace Dub, which I can rarely resist dropping into my live sets. This is most definitely techno for the deep heads.
