This live set is incredible, especially given the technology they had in 94/95.

It is quite artistic where sequencing is concerned, and starts with a looong ambient passage that slowly builds the pressure. From there, we basically drop into more powerful versions of his dancefloor tunes of the era. A really nice blend of intelligent Techno and Trance. Once the dancefloor burning is done, he has the guts to segue into a straight-up IDM section before finishing things off on another dancefloor number.

The transitions are also quite nice, maintaining momentum throughout.

Apparently he got his pseudonym as the result of being a technical whiz on the decks. This set (assuming it was performed as live as it could be for the time) shows that he was also quite advanced as a live act. Truly a perfect encapsulation of Speedy J at the peak of this phase in his career.

If you like this stuff, check out Apparat and his various projects.
