you buy it for "east of the sun", but you'll probably keep it for the b side. side A would be played a lot, if only the structure was diffrent..if there were a few "drums only" sequences where the main melodic elements are absent, it would probably never get taken out of the "techno bag".. Anyway "last journey" and "whatever" are perfectly playable, eerie sounding space probe reports ;)

East of the sun has quickly become an all time favourite for me. It gives you a "calm but frantic" feeling which come out of the particularly beautiful Detroit style tracks.

The A side is one of their most inspiring and introspective moments. An off-beat Detroit influenced jewel with refined pads, somnolent soothing chords, and soft, delicate layers of melodies coming together into a coherent, snug excursion into the subtler realms of techno. With its running time of 7 minutes, the journey luckily seems endless…
B1 is a full blown techno stomper with an incredibly rough and loud kick (think of Dave Clarke’s Thunder) coupled with a creepy, piercing and reverberating synth stab, giving the track a total no-nonsense pure techno feel. What a gem, with less than a handful of layers used, yet all of them manipulated in such a catchy way. Total dance floor annihilation.
B2 is a short one, combining the percussive madness of the previous track with the harmonic elements of the A side. Nonetheless, it’s a great piece where aquatic and organic sounds, an underlying Detroit lead are trying to hold their own against a punishing, neck snapping 4x4 drum kick assault.
As with all of the 65D Mavericks stuff, this is worth your time and money, and it has a little something for everyone who will bother to lend it an ear.
