A visionary masterpiece and defining moment in the history of dub techno. 15 + years since its release, this music still sounds vibrant, sophisticated, and futuristic.

If you dont own this, hunt it down, you will not regret it. It's a listening experience like few others.

This is one of my favorite releases on Chain Reaction and one which has a sound so clearly defined as its own. In the opening minute of anti-static it clearly sets the tone for the beauties to follow. Solanus is the kind of song you can almost float in, its weightless structure leaves me floating. Rene has a very unique way of venturing into the wilderness of the abstract without getting to experimental, a fine line he walks with ease. To classify him in the league of say, Basic Channel would be unjust, as he is not, he is a one man space ship. If your interested to see what life is like on the other side of the galaxy, I recommend putting this on and closing your eyes as that is about the closest you'll ever get to exploring it.
