I think the production and mixing quality of this one really lines up with the other Stablo releases.
There are very few moments in the arrangement where you get the impression that instruments could have been left out or patterns cut earlier.
I like that the tracks are long. The use of space on the vinyl is beautiful which also gave the engineer/cutter much space to work with which you can clearly hear in the sound quality. This also helps the DJ a lot. You can let it roll for the full ten minutes and let the crowd explore all the small sonics which were put in. The solid beat works easily allow this without turning into a repetitive grind. Since the instruments and samples are so carefully chosen and not over exaggerated you could also run another record in parallel for several minutes and really work with the EQ to get the most out of the mix.
And you can still easily enjoy this at home in full length.
Synth on A-side feels a little repetitive. The sampling and ambient works are outstanding, really well done.
I think the B-side really is the one here, it builds up very nicely, takes you in. The sparsely used synth is announcing a pressure buildup at the beginning which is used for an enjoyable moment in the middle.

However, I still don't get what they were thinking with this mysterious white label shit and why they got away with it. I mean the tracks are great but I wouldn't consider this a masterpiece due to it's lack of ideas.
I guess the tracks are kind of mysterious too. Like some studio lab geeks spent one summer in a basement and came up with their 'creations'.

This would have been average, but considering the production and mixing quality and with the B-side on this one being one of my favorites from all the Stablo tracks, I'm giving this one a 4/5.

Say what you will about this label being too hyped or too limited or too overpriced--when the bassline comes in halfway into the A-side track the people won't be able to help but groove.
