I don't get why Sasha is so into releasing EPs. Obviously he will earn a lot more money from releasing albums.

This EP is over 45 minutes, he could have stuck on an ambient intro and outro, and nobody would have said anything if it was released as an album.

How can I tell the difference between the Direct Metal Mastering version and the original?

Sasha's Xpander EP was and still is the epitome of the progressive house genre in 1999.

Every track is intellectually layered, with multiplicity of dynamic sounds only to be understood + appreciated after repeated listening sessions.

Sasha was undoubtedly at the top of the electronic music.

A classic for prog-house lovers, and a must for any electronic music collection.

If you have this on vinyl then play "Baja" at 45rpm and if you have on CD or MP3 play on your cdjs faster.
I think ti sounds far better at twice the speed, imo.

I agree xpander does not sound like little bullet live mix.On Charlie May's album "mayhem volume 1" the sleeve notes say "Sasha tasked May with engineering a new version of an unreleased Spooky track xpander", so if that's correct then it seems like it was more Charlie May's work, but obviously he was happy for it to be credited to Sasha.

Heard Xpander for the first time when Taucher mixed it into Bedrock's Heaven Scent on Tillmann Uhrmacher's MaxiMal show. Both tracks were a revelation; but as UK progressive house wasn't marketed in Germany, the EP was hard to get. Got my hands on the CD version 3 years later on a vinyl/CD bazar - I couldn't believe that I could have THAT much luck! And then, some months later, I left a box with ten of my favourite, partially rare, discs in the bus after school. I never saw the box again. Imagine my relief when I discovered that this disc was in my discman at the time and that i forgot the sleeve at home that day!
Since then, it is that very special item in my collection. Each track is great - an essential ep as asot7 said!

Xpander changed my life forever. Once you click with this type of music it is like losing virginity, there is no way back, ever!

The credits on this record have always cracked me up. It says "written by A. Coe", but then Xpander and Belfunk were written by Spooky. Which is it? Can't be both! As a long time Spooky fan, there is no doubt in my mind Xpander is a Spooky track, pure and simple.

I like the 4 tracks in this EP, but Xpander is the master piece of this LP, when you listen this tune, you can feel all the melodies ans beats, the main sound is just amazing!! for me is a masterclass record, obiously I remember his roots - Spooky "little bullet" "live" mix.
