To the main public Technohead is a one hit wonder with a "cheesy" track called I Wanna Be A Hippy. Nobody really knows anything behind it, they don't know that what they hear is the Flamman & Abraxas Remix, they don't know anything, not that Lee Newman passed in 1995 or what they had to offer as GTO or Technohead. It's sad but the reality and one of the many cancers of this world: Prejudiced opinions without real knowledge.

But onto this record: Jetset #1 is Breakbeat with various interesting sounds and an orchestral sample from the James Bond theme "You Only Live Twice", years before Robbie Williams (or his producers to be concrete) used the same melody in Millennium. Jetset #2 is a variation of #1, with a bit more straightforward Beats and some other sounds.

Accelerator #4 is Hardcore in 186.5 BPM range, it includes among other things what sounds a bit like a spoof on the beginning of the National Anthem of the US. A bit sad that the nice choir part of the Accelerator #2 version gets a bit lost here.
Accelerator #3 is what I would consider the Hardcore version of Accelerator #2, sadly this version (#2) is not on this release.

I wonder if the order of songs was supposed to be like that (#4 comes before #3...).

Faves on here are Jetset #1 and Accelerator #3.
