Fantastic LP with a great selection of tracks.
There really is some great tracks on here some of which feature on future releases such as "Still Life Keeps Moving", "Logical Progression", "Real Love" & "Techno Symphony", but to be fair all the tracks are pretty good & worth a listen if you are into that early Techno sound, with a Detroit feel.
I always think we never had enough Nexus 21 releases before them became Altern 8.

This is an absolutely superb LP of classic Detroit sound techno (produced by 2 English blokes) that is still very playable. Especially the track 'Logical Progression' with its repeated rock, rockets voice sample and rolling bassline.
These guys were later to (sadly) become 'Altern 8' and grace the world with dodgy rave rubbish-ness. I'm sure it was just a cashing-in thing like so many other good producers did.
What a lot of techno heads of today don't realise is just how hard to find, good techno records was unless you were in a big city and knew guys behind the counter. This is one of those rare gems that went by unnoticed by most and should be sought by all who are into the Detroit sound.
