FYI: Thomas Barnett's - 'Let There Be Light' was actually written and produced back in 1991. Great track.

Not as strong as the purely Euro-centric early compilation but Space Time Continuum & Plastikman I never turn a blind ear too. Wish he was making more music. Not a bad compilation just not as engaging as the early vol 1 & 2 which will always remain in my music library!

The first disc has two songs that are stellar. Spacetime continuum displays his typical talents of using soft pings and reverberated pongs to give a holophonic effect. The better composition is Dancing tides. Yennek, aka Kenny Larkin, produces this lush, jazzy breakbeat symphony (with a sax!). It is much better than his Azymuth productions.

On the second disc, Plastikman, suprisingly offers something more than percussion. A slow, dubby roller with an un-acidic tb-303 line, he grooves and gives like the other funky Detroit boys. To beat him, you need Eddie Fowlkes. Lodge freeway has maybe a little too much energy, but I think the influence is from the Berlin scene at that time.

Lesser but still pleasant tracks include those from Aux 88 and Born under a rhyming planet. Phantom power is slow, soulful, and electro-tinged. Blop is kind of like a mid-phase Matthew Herbert orchestra of household objects coming to life and tapping or bouncing away in a barely melodic manner.
The book is even more fun to read, as Richie Hawtin tells you which brand of apple juice is the best (I tried them and he's right).
