This record is, together with the other Separate Minds ep on Express Records, pretty essential. Both records certainly need more attention in the techno history books.

Scattered Thoughts is one of my all-time favourite Detroit tracks. So raw and powerful, yet so emotional. No formulas, just wonderful Detroit Techno.
The project is an abstract sounding, noisy track with vocals. A bit similar to the stuff Mad Mike and UR are putting out at the moment.
Troubled world finally is a nice piano, oldskool house-track with someone reporting about shootings, crackhouses and other drug-related problems. The vocals are sad but the track is quite happy. The vocal sums it up rightly. “This is a troubled world, a crazy mixed-up world.”
