I remember this really clearly.

ax-11, ax-12 and ax-13 all came in to my local record shop on the same day. I bought Humana and was pissed off that I couldn't get this. Bought it in the end. Everyone had a copy. Every track got thrashed!~

Black is the Number and In the Bush are two of the best techno tunes ever produced.

A quite brilliant record. Every tune is a classic, but In the Bush is a personal favourite. I've used it to get myself out of trouble on many occasions.

CASA, One of my favourite all time tracks. Thinking about it being used on the Jeff Mills' Mix up series, with the Japanese people getting crazy when seeing that Jeff will start some extra spins. Samba-people can curl their bodies any way they want, but they can't curve it the way this track rolls through the speakers.
