Having read the reviews here that bought the 12 I have to say I was just a little bit dissapointed. There is lots of talk of a great Plasticman remix which I relished the thought of (actually one of the less positive reviews does touch on this) but I believe what you get is actually much more F.U.S.E. in charachter. There are none of those elastic high pitched 303 sounds twisting and writhing over one another al la Plasticman. Very early Plasicman, possibly (as mentioned). A very good F.U.S.E. mix non the less but just don't be expecting those subtly acidic whines over the kind of skipping drums found only in 'Spastik'...no, they're not there. A hyped, elongated 'do da do' remix you might find though. And a very good one at that...

Plastikman's (AKA Richie Hawtin) remix of "Alpha Wave" is just fabulous! It has tweaking & mind funking sounds and stabs travelling from one stop to the next, with exceptional arrangement, perfect timing, keeping the listener at the edge of the seat, waiting for that aceeeeeid explosion to take off! And when it does, you're already far, far, far away from your seat.
As for the rest, not that it is not worthy of a mention, but after mr. Hawtin opens up with a 17 minute classic, what could possibly compare? Get it. A group as legendary as System7 getting remixed by the living legend himslelf is not to be missed!
