Sun Electric with this magical album achieved what many trance oriented producers didn't succeed to do. *Real* cosmic travelling ! "uP the drain" being one great example. Between ambient , trance and techno this is truely a masterpiece album.

This is a great piece from Sun Electric, Top production. I like all the tracks but my favorite is Pitcheon. Great track that reminds me of underground raving. Up The Drain comes close but a little to light in sounds for my taste. If you enjoyed these tunes get 30.7.94 Live which is actually their best work in my opinion.

A kind of pre-release for the Aaaah LP, with a good half of the tracks being the same. The rest of them is also brilliant, and it is sad it didn't made it to the CD... For example the Australania version of O'locco is amazing, and really different from the previous versions, longer and more hypnotic. Generally it offers the trademark Sun Electric Ambient Trance, carefully produced, with an uptempo R&S side (the Pitcheon 12") and an ambientish Apollo side (The "Sarotti" 12").
Besides, this is certainly one of the most beautifully crafted R&S sleeve design, and a clear peak in the Designer Republic Career.
And of course you got that very R&s touch : Osram 527 is logically credited of its 5:27, but Osram 418 gets 4:17. The "Anokomeda" syndrome! ;-)

Dual label press. Sides C and D credited to Apollo records. The R&S Ambient-ish offshot.
The R&S disc (Side A and B) is a most beautiful peach type clear vinyl. With the most stunning of graphic work by Designers Republic.
It was at this point I started buying a lot of things on the fact that Designers Republic had done the graphic work.

This is the best quality pressed vinyl I have ever heard! And when they mean clear vinyl, it really is transparent and not translucent like other clear vinyls. I don't know where the "Natural Energy" title comes from because although it does say that on the cover, there are a lot of other similar style slogans written all over the cover.

'Sun Electric' had a lengthy break after their first release of "O'locco' because their studio was broken into and all their equipment stolen.
This was their first actual project since then, even though 'Kitchen' was released a few months earlier. They had their own sound, put on display on this record to very good effect.
Ambient in parts moving toward a very dense Techno Trance sound.
Their definitive release.
