Let me first start off by saying that I'm a huge fan of Hawtin. I love minimal, I love what M_nus does. I'm not sure if this mix was made in haste but there are some definite phasing issues that occur around the 7 and 8 minute mark that make me wonder if this was rushed to release a little early. By phasing I mean, the track "Link" is invoked on the laptop at the wrong point so you're dancing or nodding your head and things are not changing in the layers at the time that you expect them to. I hope that made sense.

All that being said, the tracks are cool and unique sounding and the cd is definitely worth having. I feel that Barem's "Link" is by far the best track on here. Pure f*cking ownage. Look to see more from Barem on M_nus in the near future...

As usual with Mr. Hawtin's mixes, this one is ace from beginning to end. Recorded while on tour and clocking at a mere 35 minutes, it is comprised of unreleased tracks by such M_nus flagships as Marc Houle, Heartthrob, Gaiser and Troy Pierce. Due to its concentrated length it is less spacey than the Transitions opus, leaving less room to breath without sacrificing any of the tricks that have made Richie's DJ mixes state of the art. Dark atmospheres, fat bass lines, hard hitting beats, complex track interlocking... definitely a must for anyone into the M_nus sound and/or forward thinking Techno/Minimal. All unmixed tracks are available for high quality download at Beatport.
