Very well selected compilation. A pity that they did not continue like planned. Although I prefer electronic music from the early nineties (in the years around 1998 I felt a big disappointing because of the quality of most techno music) this release did let me look in that days into the future with hope again. Michael Brenner as compilation producer (like stated here on the Discogs page; btw: he is not stated anywhere on the releases info) did a good job with this Double-Cd Compilation. The tracks are different styles but mostly high quality, they have soul and power. One of them I did never forget is Christian Morgensterns All Night Dancing: I never met someone who was not impressed by this deep energy. Ben Sims Manipulated (Adam Beyer Remix) was a huge club hit with this special brasilian drive. Amo Bishop Roden by Boards of Canada, Samuel L Sessions Velvet and Quiet Dazes (Ian Pooley on Transmat) The Scenic Route are soulfood, tools to get into your innerself and you can enjoy a lot of other nice trips on both discs.
The artwork of the release is done with love - not too much design and colors or effects, just a tasteful art paint - and on every track a little background knowledge is given beside the normal infos like about producer/remixer and so on...
Maybe the 9/11 shock and the upcoming new decade was the reason MALEC changed their plans.
It is conceivable that more and more in future this 2cd release becomes a rare gem.
If there would have been a second part its questionable if it could reach the same quality as the first 2cd. We know this effect from other releases of the past.
But this one has the quality, there are not too much compilations like that out there. 5/5
Timeless... thats the key!
