If you like Classic Goa Trance listen to track 8. It's a great track.

Wonderful repress and remaster. Music is great too - an early 90s electronica classic I remember from smoky bedrooms. Worth the wait.

Cool story behind this one... I'd been looking for this on vinyl for years, and eventually emailed the label to see if they had additional copies laying around that I could buy. Some weeks later, one arrived in my mailbox (Portland, OR) from the UK... they mailed me one for free with a personal note!! (this was back in the late 90s) Incredible!!

Acid 303 bass-lines, old school REAL drum boxes whirl, swirl and commune to make some really funky silicon based ambient IDM electronica. One of my top 10 favorites to come out in the 90's heyday of pure mesmerizing IDM. A hell of a midi workout I can only imagine to get all these machines to work in unison! The HIA with Biosphere release is also fantastic.

The first HIA album starts strong, bridging the "gap" between bleep techno and ambience. Soft pads and hooks intertwine with blips, bleeps, qwirky percussion, electro flavourings and distinct proto-IDM-tinged atmospheres. The same goes for Freefloater. Both are mid-90s ambient classics but their reach extends beyond that of an insomnia cure, mostly because they escape easy pidgeonholing. Recommended.
