        At first listen this album struck me as a little too far out there but I have to admit now that I've given it several listens it has grown on me. I'm a fan of minimal techno but for me, it has to be applicable to dancefloors. I don't buy albums full of random bleepy robot nonsense and then try to derive some deep (bullsh*t-ridden) meaning from it.

        That being said, I find that a lot of the titles this triple pack are far enough away from absractness that they would be highly playable in an opening set. Tracks in particular that are suited for opening a dancefloor are Slacknoise, Heartthrob, Niederflur, Pheek, and possibly Magda.

        When you play this kind of techno you have to be the right mood to hear it. To me its not something I'd get a kick listening to in the car. You need to be in dark, dirty atmosphere listening to this on BIG speakers. A lot of the beauty in these tracks is in their basslines. The basslines dig so low that unless you have a system in your car or at home you're not even going to know that they exist.

        Another note, although I can't imagine a situation that I would play Hawtin's "Circles" to a live audience it really is a cool little piece of music.
