Sphere is the 303 stepper to end all. This is the one for me on here. Optical shines through well and he hit a level of sci fi minimalism on Sphere that was out of this world really.

Sonar is a monstrous classic techstep but Sphere is nonetheless a great tune and a bit underrated imo.

Sonar is better than Sphere, hands down. However Sphere is still a great tune.

Trace's "Sonar" tune is dark and heavy. One of the best d&b tunes I've ever heard and I heard this track on Drum & Bass Arena with Randall.. Also a Mampi Swift tape from 1998 at Helter Skelter... Excellent tune!

The Sonar Track Sounds More Like A Ray Keith Tune To Me....

i stopped paying attention to d&b in 97, so this is my first time hearing "sonar", but it sounds like "liberty 1" remixed

'Sonar' is a tech step classic & a anthem that is still played today. Starting with sinister piano sounding hooks & a neat drum break you get a little silent breakdown before the drop which is awesome! Huge reece bassline & crashing tramen drums are the order of the day. Production credits must also go out to Dom & Roland on this tune.

'Sphere' is a nice rolling techno number which is hugely overlooked by may fans. Credit also to Optical on this excellent number. This record is well worth tracking down on the excellent Prototype recordings label.

Just a small point, but the Tramen break appeared earlist on Mutant Revisited in 1996. It also use's the same 'Reece' bass sound. These are tunes produced with the help of Dom & Roland even though he is uncredited.
