Fans of Titonton Duvante and Dan Curtin would do well to track this one down. Fresh, enthusiastic chord stabs introduce the first track, "Libra", which then continues to build on its theme. 'Broken beat' before the term really came into common usage, really.

The slightly more langorous "Pisces" uses jazzy chords and synthesized choral textures over a more insistent beat (well, insistent in that there's a quiet 4/4 kick drum in there - this is hardly Drumcode!) to round off the A-side.

Only one track on the B-side - "Capricorn Sun". This is slightly more in the spirit of "Cost of Livin'", the Nu Era track on Deepest Shade of Techno, with its Detroity chords and skippy, housey rhythm patterns. Although this is the highlight of the EP for me, fans of more recent Nu Era material ("Broken Techno", "Some Think Electronic") would probably want to head for the more 'broken' tracks on the flip side.
