A representative -- and quite good -- selection for this labels' first compilation. Nearly every track stands on its own, and there is a distinctively French feel that is maintained throughout. Originally released back in '95, this record easily stands the test of time. On the cover it boasts "only exclusive & unreleased tracks". How accurate that claim is, I leave to the experts; but nevertheless -- the tracklist is very decent. Some tracks on this disc, like 4 & 8, are also (to my knowledge at least) not featured on other compilations.

Personal favorites on this disc include:

#2. Blue Planet Corporation - "Antidote".
Ahh. One of the real genre-defining masterpieces here from BPC (Gabriel Masurel) with his trademark proggy synths and energetic buildups & backcurrents. Despite also being featured on numerous other compilations, this is one that is hard to get tired of listening to. As with his out-of-this-world debut album, this track features the kind of goosebump-inducing feeling that this artist is unique in delivering the listener.

#4. Man of the last 3rd - "noname".
Real melodic & dreamy trance effort in this rather unimaginatively named track by Ingo Schnorrenberg.

#8. Magnetic Pulstar - "Pulse" (Man of the last 3rd remix)
Solid techno/acid trance track. One of the disc's best.

#9. Emmanuel Top - "Tri-Cid". Although strictly speaking it doesn't belong in the psy-trance category, this wonderfully minimalistic (and quite repetitive -- in a good way, that is;) techno classic really is one of my favorites. Clocking in at over 11 mins, this is a perfect choice to round off the compo with.
