it was a surprise for dr. motte to see this release on transmat without permission. dr. motte & 3 phase never give permission to do so and call this copyright infringement by mr. derrik mayday may. transmat never payed a cent to the copyright owner matthias roeingh alias dr. motte or sven röhrig alias 3 phase! derrik may says, dr. motte is stupid instead after complaining on twitter...

Derrick got the name Transmat from Juan's Night Drive track, he didn't know what it meant, just liked the sound of it. He kept the MS abbreviation (still to this day,) as a tribute to Metroplex.

Recent re-releases are easily identified by the label sticker design / graphics - Black background, white text, nice shaded small Transmat logo and just below the logo text "transmat" (all lower case) on gray, and below that text, gray block with black text "CLASSICS" (all uppercase).
