This 8-track set spans the divide between several genres. Barely qualifying as "techno" at times, some tracks perhaps can be described as tech-house, but coupled with a smooth "euro" production style more like of progressive trance. Very useful for bridging between styles in a varied set.

The first two tracks are solid minimal techno/tech-house grooves that sit well alongside the likes of Superbra material.
"Reactivate the Unexpect" is awesome, building a subtle storm with a one-note BC-style riff before unexpectedly (appropriate given the title!) adding a second note to devastating effect.
The best track for me is "I can feel that", which builds a hypnotic groove with an awesome little vocal sample "Pushing me higher"..."I can feel that" that pops in every now and then, and once again a repeated synth riff, that suddenly adds some extra notes at a crucial moment! Absolute top-notch dancefloor fodder and worth 5/5 for that track alone!
"Overflow" has lots of fat synths and is the most bombastic track of the LP, "Northern Lights" is the most chilled, "Supernatural" is prog-trancey fodder, and "Eat The Drums" returns to techno minimalism with plenty of drumkit action as indiated by the title.
The overall mood is very uptempo, with lots of subtle energy filling these tracks without excessive BPMs, OTT kick drums, obvious breakdowns, rabble rousing effects etc.
Well worth seeking out.
