Absolute masterpiece of a 12" - Classic Techno at its best.
Difficult to choose between Illusion and R-Theme, both are great stand out tracks of their day and still in my humble opinion sound great today.
Grab a copy / have a listen & immerse yourself if the richness of this 12".

Not sure how anyone else has got on with this record, however I have gone through every original 1989 transmat release, all the colour/art/label variations & all have the same pressing fault, right channel perfect, left channel distorted/cutting in & out. My original copy on Kool- Kat played perfectly, as I suspect the R&S version will, so if your after a copy to play out, that might be a good place to start, alongside the Transmat classics re-presses. Otherwise, you may just end up with a very pricey souvenir!

Have to agree with both of the other guys who have commented on this AMAZING record, illusion techno mix 1 was one of my dads favorite tracks when i was just a child growing up, we used to drive about with this on full blast....cruising like g's looool

Never tire of listening to these tracks twenty years after they were produced. A testament to well made music.

This track lands from outta space! R-tyme made immortal track that even to this day is unbeaten with its sheer beauty.
Gorgeous melodic strings mixed with trembling whacky drums. Overall not that complicated track, but aren't the simple things in life the most enjoyable?
I've listened to this track countless times and continues to be one of my all-time fav'es.
