A truly brilliant mix cd in the basic like but vast and ever so glorious slovakian style. Spot on!

One glance at the tracklist and you get the picture. Harder than thou techno for the stubborn few put together by eastern european dungeon keepers and diligent techno torch barriers Loktibrada and Rumenige.
This is, hands down, a safe contender for the top ten hall of fame of total techno devastation. From off-beat humanity dissolving rhythmical density to metal melting T-1000 four on the concrete floor artillery, this is the aural equivalent of Mount Vesuvius spitting volcanic ejecta, launching steaming hot phenocrysts your way at a rate which makes it impossible for you to dodge. By the time you reach the Female track, Chuck Norris' chest hair will most probably be a vague memory, incinerated by the remorseless flames of sonic ammunition, while Robocop's impenetrable armor will be in a desperate need of a bullet proof vest.
That's right! Thirty seven tracks in just sixty minutes, there is no time, place or space for weaklings to inhale, exhale, or whatever do human lifeforms need to do in order to survive.
An absolutely flawless and seamless mix of the toughest, roughest, forcible and malevolent techno at the time, relying mostly on works churned out by the guys gathered around the infamous Palicavonzvreca imprint, and getting occasional 'foreign' aid by well loved and known techno crusaders, Christian Wunsch and Takaaki Itoh.
If there is any, remote aspect of this mix I could complain about, it's that I'd fancy some British Murder Boys trickery in it as well, but it's one of those complaints I'd file under the "perfection reached: complaints made for the sake of conversing". You got that right, for fans of the post 2001 Counterbalance sound, Warm Up Recordings, Tsunami, Planet Rhythm or Downwards, this is something you cannot afford to mix. Even more due to the fact that the above labels, and their respective artists have seldom released commercially available DJ mixes, so you will just have to settle with listening to this one for all infinity!
As far as similar recommendations go, try the "About discipline and education" mix by Oscar Mulero, the first "Perlen" by Thomas Schumacher, and some early mixes by the likes of Ben Sims and the early Fine Audio mixes by Chris Liebing. Although recommendations are kind of obsolete this time around, because as previously confirmed, a look at the tracklist will be more than enough to convince you to place the purchase, if this is your thing naturally.
Quite probably the finest mix ever released covering this industrial/off-kilter aesthetic of the large techno spectrum. A well deserved 5/5. If you can find it, make sure you don't leave the shop without it.
