Imagine buying this 'blind' as they say and hearing the first track 1. Phase 4 ....... If you continued on from the first track then batten down the hatches for an immense journey through the agony and ecstasy of one mans mind via technology... Better than any anti-depressant prescribed by any head shrinker...My own personal quote would go something like this " Don't shrink... Expand " ! .... Mission translated as a complete musical aural science...

Not only Waveform Transmission Vol. 1 is one of the best techno albums ever made, it's also a blueprint of everything that had to come afterwards in techno. This album has influenced tons of techno DJ's and producers. But the beauty of this album is that it will never sound dated at all. There is a lot of diversity to be found on this album yet most of the songs are pretty pumping and straight forward. My favourite track will always be Berlin, it just has everything that I like about techno because it manages to be very hypnotic and brutal at the same time. And brutal is an understatement here: rage, distortion, unpolished 303 and 909 madness and excellent breaks. The charm of the track lies in the naivety, which I really miss in today's techno. If you want to know why they call Jeff Mills "the wizard", you simply have to listen to this album.

In 1992 the cheesey rave scene was taking over the UK, or if you were lucky you found a club that was playing chicago style house music which at least had some soul. Meanwhile in a darkened room somewhere Jeff Mills was tweaking the hell out of the knobs on his drum machine. Bringing this home one day from Eastern Bloc records was revolutionary, suddenly the dance scene had a new direction. This record must have influenced countless disillusioned DJs and producers. It's a deep and industrial workout with very occasional (perhaps unintentional) melodic snippets. Like his DJ sets, its raw and honest, you know what you are getting: and if it's not a headache it's a trip through a world where the machines took over a long time ago ...

Punishing intense techno at its rawest-
nearly 20 years old but still the sound of the future, some classic tracks from the master of minimal- These tracks are what a suicide assasin robot from the planet axis is thinking.Danger_meltdown_ error
error error error-_reboot.Jeff Mills has the ability to say more with a drum beat and a sound effect than any musician alive today- listening to this album the whole way through is a brutal and dark journey-reboot Highly recommended to anyone who wants to know what techno is about intelligent _subversive and dangerous!

This Record in my opinion was and remains a revolution in dance music.
I will allways remember the first time i've heard this in the shop
when it came out.
It contained a new soundscape that stunned me.
Jeff Mills re-invented Techno with this and set the pace
for all the hardcore Techno to come.
The mixture of highly distorded drum machine sounds and synths
with punchy and groovy rhythms created a new vision of techno and opened a door path to a whole new style.

A Jeff Mills classic, made with a keyboard and EPS 16 Sampler. This man is really FAST at the mixdown, and he knows the shit. Phase 4 is a remix of "Der Klang der Familie" , another early Tresor classic. The vinyl has been remastered in 2002 or 2003, sounds much better than the CD version.
