    looking back, the AX11 appeared to be my fave and most playable of the PM series (Steampit comes close second, but it's been played by everyone over and over, so you probably dont want to hear it again anytime soon)

    this one however has not been abused this much and it still works the floor while sounding surprisingly fresh.
    tbh the only case Ive got this out of the 130+ bag was when I replaced a battered copy with a fresh one.

    i'd think some of the PM series could be replaced with SLS' Cycle recs, but this one has to stay.

      Funky and fast. It’s classic, unstoppable Jeff Mills. Can mix it into all kinds of other records.

        first techno record i bought. Genuinely couldn't get my head around it - but in a good way. Got #12 Humana at the same time and still love that as much as this record / maybe even more

              Absolutely seminal record. ˋblack is the number´ is based on a sample of ˋremember´ by Gino Soccio.

                In the Bush is the definitive techno tune - classy, driving machine funk. You can mix this with just about anything and it will sound perfect

                    I love 'Reverting' just so damn hypnotic and funky in a dark, jacking way, defo one of my fave Jeff Mills tracks.

                      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!~
