      You can hear birds singing through out the recording in the quiet parts, it adds another dimension to the already wonderful atmosphere!

        Beautiful release! I don't want to pay 40-50 quid still. I would love a repress pretty please!

          Despite to the comment made earlier, I think the A side "Mimoun Marhaba" is a simple perfect evidence how modern classical can fit into minimal and this gives the sense of not so thought techno but simply is it. Techno without a beat but heavy repetative and loopy! think, how good to mix with it!

            hello discogs community ...I like this ep so much that I am very desappointed. my vinyl come with some defects ... especially the A side, with a big part of background noise (just before the singing). I know life has surface noise but I don't understand the interest to make a vinyl for finally a small result ...these tracks deserve better . Too Bad!!!

            have you the same copy or I am a unlucky DJ???

              The AA side is one of the most extraordinary things I have ever heard, it's proper 'trance' music. Holden just slides in some searing modular tones around the natural peaks, while the lead vocal stretches towards heaven, and cranks it all up a couple more notches, amazing stuff!

              The A side doesn't work quite as well, IMO. It begins with with just the 'floaty' loop that concludes FP's 'Montparnasse', and I don't know if the Moroccan musicians deserve to be 'slaved' against a looped 'master'. It comes across as odd and not entirely convincing, and for me, the track never really goes anywhere as a consequence, even after that loop is replaced by others. It seems a shame to go all the way to the Atlas Mountains and not let the objects of your pilgrimage lead the way... Sorry, I really like FP's other work, but this one didn't do it for me.

              The photo-essay booklet is a very nice touch, and provides some illuminating context.
