The title cut of this record is one of the maker's most blissful moments. Over mildly paced, heavily broken drum patterns, he descends with flashes of cascading drones and intense synth stabs. It's an overwhelming passage that increases in momentum as the tune progresses. It's such a glorious sci-fi techo bomb with incessant laser beams plunging onto the track's nucleus. The frantic level of intensity is not achieved through harsh rhythms and beefed up bpm rates. Instead, he opts for vintage synthetic riffs that shamelessly rip the cut with its heavy hitting drops. An authentic Steve Stoll masterpiece.

The B side, whils high quality stuff, no doubt, is more in the regular Proper N.Y.C. vain: fast, shuffly rhythms, reminding at times of some of Mills' earlier, hysterical output on Axis and high pitched loops and tweaked acid stabs to increase the nervosity. Great in its own right, but it's the huge analog overtones of Hustler, and their air raid invasion like presence that will make any self respecting fan of vintage techno seek this one out.
