Again, Frederic van Geluwe did it again! Great USA Import underground vinyl, Belgium shows brutal effects: 1x hard tekkno, 1x extended repetitive looptechno and a little tekknorave track.
If somebody rate this one down he forgot the time when this 12" had been produced, hard and easy stuff on the point was wanted in that era around the beginning of the 90s. Also Trance tunes and Breakbeat a.s.o. but this one is an example for the hard(core) style. Hard sounds with this direction were unique and the opposite of been boring at this time for the main part of people. For this reason a lot of artists composed tracks in this style, just hard and minimalistic. Unfortunately but expectedly the music scene was overflooded by tracks with this matrix but it was worth it - with the look back our attention is on all this hard tracks in demand, sometimes the 12" such expensive as the turntable itself. In my opinion this is a straight hard underground record the old school lovers are looking for. I listened to this Malak track from the Fuckparade 2007 Babywelt Rec cd for the first time and it blows me away. This is 93 hardcore techno underground and the better one5/5points if you need a strange rough hard trip with the TEST 3

Quite a dodgy release.
Response Test unashamedly recycles material from Frequency Test, another Van Geluwe track, into an awful result, while Ballerine is a veeeeeeeery long Acid track - its bassline is OK, yet spoilt by the bass, and actually everything else, from the bassdrum to the uninspired production.
Only Malak is passable. A heavy techno-rave track with no subtlety whatsoever - but at least listenable, if one makes an effort.

Maybe this one did not age well, although it was more likely not good from the beginning.
Can't win 'em all.
