    This is a gem of a EP. Not a bad track on it. I get tunes stuck in my head and more often than not and invariably when frantically going through ripped vinyl to see if I have it in itunes it ends up one of the tunes off this EP. Ethno Blast is a nice dreamy stepper with that infamous 'Bad Self' break. Ricochet is a bubblin jazzy roller with female vocals. Return To Intelligence reminds me a lot of Mental Power's Unknown Intelligence and has the best piano breakdown ever. Shine A Rewind is just beautiful, sounds much like something that could have come out on Good Looking or Lucky Spin only better with rougher change ups, and of course: "Bigggggg bludclottt!"

      If you like this release then, I think people ought to check DJ Harmony's remix of Shine-a-Rewind - pure class - better than original? Shouldn't be a question of that as both are excellent in their own right

        The only tough decision you have to make about this record is which track is better! Massive massive early moving shadow, my two favorites are "Shine A Rewind" and "Ethno Blast", with the first taking a slight edge over the later. "Shine A Rewind" is one of the best intro-tracks I've ever heard, starting out slowly with a trancey, spacey feel. The break down adds some water drop effects, while the drop tantalizes the senses with its warped vocals and choppy beat. "Ethno Blast" gets into the meat of the song alot quicker, bringing you a drum echoing effect that seems to come at you from all directions. Definitely a MUST HAVE!
