    I think there is enough talk about 'Paper Moon' which obviously is a huge classic and has aged really wel. Hypnotic and deep, but a few weeks back I discovered the B side. Tracktion is really amazing as well and will suck you right into ecstasy. Glad I bought this for €18 two years ago but I would definitely pay up for this one. Deserves a repress because this record should be accessible to all.

      Almost 10 years ago, Harry the Bastard - Club H Volume 2 turned me onto "Paper Moon", which I only now realize never made it from the CD mix onto the vinyl compilation. A real shame. A perfect deep house song. I wonder if I will ever be able to own this track on vinyl.

      "Paper Moon" was played by Edowa Shimizu at The Loft, Ukranian National Home, 20Aug2022.

        Outstanding record (Tracktion). Reminds of the kinda thing Kenny Larkin was doing at the time.

          Getting hard to find at a sensible price now, this would be a great choice for a reissue label, absolute classic record.

              A few moments into hearing paper Moonback in 1994 I was ready to go to the Limelight. This track is truly deep and brings a hypnotic state of trance into the groove. A must listen to have if you want to experience true music at it's best.

                Never could find the acapella of the vocal used in this.

                  I first heard this record on a Darren Emerson 'Cream Mix' a long time ago and this for me stood out among all the songs on there. '...a world so deep. So liquid' - could not be more on the nail than that. Hypnotic keys and a woodblock sound drive this record along then the strings come in to build the tension..... The sound on this record really does take you away to somewhere else and as a mixing tool it works well as a transistion between building atmosphere or changing direction later on. A serious tip!

                    Outrageously deep EP. Every single track on it is good enough to be the main track on separate pieces of vinyl. Paper Moon is a superbly produced hybrid of techno and house. Persisent hypnotic rhythms and spacious strings rise and fall all through this blissed out track. Tracktion is a killer piece of deep techno - superb beats for the intro drop out to make room for the track's melodic hook. And what a hook it is - once heard never forgotten. The EP finishes off with Squeeze, a piece of smooth sophisticated house music of the highest quality. No reliance on house cliches here - just a few deep smooth Rhodes keys, beats, funky bass and a perfectly chosen repeated vocal sample of "Je reside en Paris. Voulez vous venir?" are put together in masterful style.

                    Simply an all-time classic EP

                      This Ep is set to be the first Tech-House record ever produced. In 1994 it was one of the biggest tech-house tracks of the year. It's a smooth groovy spacious Tech-House track with a warm vocal which takes you a level higher. Only for this track alone a must have. For many an all-time favorite which includes me.

                      A world so deep so liquid...
