Recorded at Black Planet Studios, Detroit MI, Nov 1st. 1994.

Dark Energy is the first in a series of sonic strikes engineered by UR to be carried out during the winter equinox of star year 1994-1995, against programmer strongholds. The primary strike will consist of a series of 6 dark energy waves.
This mission will be carried out by Nitestrike leader James (Suburban Night) Pennington. The Dark Energy Waves will engulf the Earth in a ultraviolet Midnight Sunshine allowing the Suburban Night and other resistance forces worldwide to finally see the truth and pinpoint programmer positions for the now mobile UR divisions moving out of Detroit for the upcoming assault worldwide. To our brothers and sisters of the Underground - stay low, stay strong, stay Underground.

This release was a very strong 2x12" by U.R. A-side and D-side are my favorite, but all is good really. Funky, sonically original, like techno should be.

James Pennington told in an interview with Kodwo Eshun
that his grandfather was fighting as GI in Germany in the second world war. At one night the German shot flares into the sky which lit up more brightly as the midnight sun. He slept at this time, waked up suddenly and ran miles away in panic with the wrong shoes(!)of his comrade. That's the story of "Midnight Sunshine" which tells you about fear and pain.
