I love this EP, as fresh today as when it first came out. Kat Race, my favourite of all the Purpose Maker tracks is one of the funkiest, bounciest grooves tracks Jeff has ever made. The Bells tends to overshadow the other tracks by reputation, but all cuts are killer techno. A bonafide classic.

I remember Felix Da House Katt dropping The Bells in the mix he did on KissFm The essential mix... That sound meanders alot through its minimalism... Its isnt a solid dirty cruncher like most of Jeff Mills' harsher side of sound but its infectious none the less!

I saw Jeff for the first time hear the bells playing in 1993 in Belgium ... I stood there and I looked / filmed at it in close up... to say control and management filmed tracked my best video recording ever at the age of 20 ... there exist a another video of this moment filmed by ambient producer Seal Phuric ...I've played on two Belgian events where Jeff Mills also played between the year 2000 -2003 ( I Love Techno 2000 and 10 days of Techno Ghent ) - I am satisfied

So I somehow ended up with a 1997 misspress with an incorrect B side as follows:

A1 - The Bells
A2 - Kat Race
B1 - Masterplan
B2 - ???

There's a 1997 misspress listed as only containing Alarms and Cyclone on both sides but not one with these tracks.
Has anyone here received a similar copy or have an explanation?

Jeff Mills fan and also don't like the Bells. It's that pop resembling un-undergroundy melody that kills it for me. It also explains why it's more mainstream I think. Cyclone for me!
