I actually bought this release because the employee at Rotation Records in Berlin basically would not let me walk out of the record store without this double pack. Joking only, naturally, however my gratitude is eternal. The lady knew her stuff.Bewildering release. Wall to wall astounding dub chords and bass lines so thick you could slice them with a machete. Delano Smith offers an elegant thumper with ascending melodic pieces that at times seem to distance themselves from the severely damaging percussion, only to succumb to the bass line's mighty " oomph " moments later... What a talent this gentleman is! He might have been around since the nineteen seventies, however the sound he has been working on recently is simply outer worldly. Check out his album "Twilight" for more stripped, deep, dance floor devastating techno fare with a heavy house tip. This man absolutely kills it with ever piece he churns out these last two-three years. An irresistible analog groove propelled by Basic Channelesque riffs and vigorous drums that command attention on every danceable level possible. This is an almost eight minute head nodding excursion into the needle of your record player. Hypnosis is your neurosis.

Mike Huckaby's remix skills are stuff of legend by this day and age. Along with his take on Model 500's Starlight and Delano Smith's What I Do, this is another top drawer rework that builds upon the original with deadly drums, various shaking conga percussive accessories and some gorgeous melodies, alla Carl Craig at his prime, entering halfway deep. All the mean time, there is a tight as hell bass line driven forth by dubby undertones. Absolute masterclass.

The Thor reconstruction is by God some of the finest post Maurizio dub techno ever committed to vinyl. I am not the greatest follower of the sound though, but this is aces high and then some. When listening to this track, I am encountering one of those " my psychiatrist told me you people do not really exist " moments. You are nothing. My dog is nothing. The bass line is the epicenter of the universe though. Makes the earth's crust quiver. How good is this track? You'd comfortably trade your girlfriend's skirt and blouse to own it. Divine laid back dub right here.

The remaining two tunes do not really meet up with the insanely high standards previously set, however don't let that bother you. Few things are on the level. The Exos remix has this awesome vibe where the bass line echoes in and out of the void, and makes for a fully immersive listening experience. Deepness achieeved properly.
Anyways, sides A, B and C are well worth spending money on. Three marvelous techno pieces, all on a heavy dub tip, but with a focal aim at the dance floors. The first plate especially, will move anything from the prophet Mohammed to the founding stones of the Chinese Wall.
