Companies, etc.


Contains a 48 page booklet with track information freely intermingled with multi-lingual (a quick glance showed English, German, and Dutch) text snippets and short articles about the label and its artists.

Regarding track 1-11 Scyscratch (Mano Mano) by Ingator II: It is not clear which track from Tresor 005 this refers to. There is only one track there that explicitly gives UR as remixer, but according to this CD's booklet every track on Tresor 005 should be mixed by UR (Jeff Mills and Mike Banks).

Also available as a limited promotional edition which was housed in a simple plastic sleeve containing all three discs (same Cat.#), the album art on a sticker (which has the tracklisting printed on the peel-off backing) but no booklet. A little throwback to the first Tresor Comp. The Techno Sound Of Berlin, which also featured a sticker...

As visible on tracklist, first CD contains a hidden track (non standard pre-gap) before track 1. It consists of sounds of waving sea, shouts of rainforest animals, and croaking of seaguls. It is possible to listen to it on standard CD player (probably not on all) if you press "rewind" key right after Track 1 starts, or if you start first track from pause, and rewind on pause .

November 16, 2007

This collection is a compilation in a way a compilation should be. Not only the music is great, the whole concept of the release is high above average. We have three discs here, packed in a great designed cardboard box with a thick booklet in it, containing interesting informations about all the artists and the history of the Tresor label/club itself.
"True Spirit" was my introduction to the sound of Tresor Records and it made me addicted from the first track on.
Disc one contains basically the hard techno sound of the first half of the 90s, disc two contains very hard techno, mainly from the second half of the 90s, and the third disc presents the more house oriented kind of techno.
Highlights? Well, there is no bad track on any of this discs, there are all essentials. Tresor addicts will probably have many of these tracks, but for beginners this compilation is the perfect guide.
A dignified birthday sampler for Tresor!
