I'm giving this disc a one star rating because whoever made this is either furkin stupid or just plain lazy. My problem is between tracks 6 and 7. Jel Ford's Cynical strangely appears not only track 6 but at the end of track 7 and the start of track 8. Something is fucked up here. I don't mean they just mislabled the tracks out of order on the back of disc either. More like the mixed the set in the studio, carefully indented where each new track starts, some how managed to stuff them up when getting the discs manufactured, went to the trouble of ammending their mistake on the tracklisting and hoped no one would actually notice their little mistake. More proof of why WET is DEAD!

Melbourne’s techno terrorists, Simon Digby and Will E Tell present Prime Sessions 001. I must say, it sure has been a while since these ears have been exposed to hard techno and at first listen I shuddered slightly but then as I got in to it I remembered just how powerful this music is and why Melbourne absolutely goes off!

No fancy prelude, the boys get straight into it commencing with ‘Remanipulator’ (remixed by Adam Beyer) by Ben Simms, an up beat, repetitive number topped with Latin vocals; plenty of energy and nice affect of the cheering crowd in the background. ‘Agent Wood RMXS’ (remixed by Ben Long) by UK Gold has a distinct eerie sound with lovely vocals that takes me back to the raving days in the early 90’s in those cwazy stomping warehouses. Stand out track is ‘Undecided’ by Gaetek, a bit Jeff Mills-esque; quick and almost sinister like, pumping with full force then, ‘Enterprize’ by Johan Bacto comes along with solid and extreme beats. ‘Bazaar’ by Valentino slows down the pace slightly and leans towards the funkier side of things, which makes for a nice change.

Tracks are about four minutes long and I was somewhat disappointed in the mixing in a few of the tracks and I also felt the tracks were dropped in a little too early, but nonetheless the selection of records certainly makes up for it.

Expect thumping, raw and forceful sounds and tracks sporting acidic crescendos; with rapid and brutal beats, this release from the Melbourne boys is not for the faint hearted and is one hell of a dark, fast ride.
