What a wicked piece of vinyl, encompasses the sounds of the underground from back in the good old days and mixes it with new techniques, what it does do like so many of the great tunes from back in the early 90's hardcore scene is give the people what they want! When Sonar drops you can't miss it...

Sonar is better than Sphere, hands down. However Sphere is still a great tune.

Trace's "Sonar" tune is dark and heavy. One of the best d&b tunes I've ever heard and I heard this track on Drum & Bass Arena with Randall.. Also a Mampi Swift tape from 1998 at Helter Skelter... Excellent tune!

i stopped paying attention to d&b in 97, so this is my first time hearing "sonar", but it sounds like "liberty 1" remixed

'Sonar' is a tech step classic & a anthem that is still played today. Starting with sinister piano sounding hooks & a neat drum break you get a little silent breakdown before the drop which is awesome! Huge reece bassline & crashing tramen drums are the order of the day. Production credits must also go out to Dom & Roland on this tune.

'Sphere' is a nice rolling techno number which is hugely overlooked by may fans. Credit also to Optical on this excellent number. This record is well worth tracking down on the excellent Prototype recordings label.

Just a small point, but the Tramen break appeared earlist on Mutant Revisited in 1996. It also use's the same 'Reece' bass sound. These are tunes produced with the help of Dom & Roland even though he is uncredited.

Sonar is a classic, and was groundbreaking, also in terms of production at the time it came out. First tune using the legendary 'tramen'-break (amen + tighten up), which was originally made by Dom & Roland.
