Some of the mix names and remix credits are only mentioned in the booklet and not on the sleeve or labels.

Track C1 is incorrectly labeled throughout as by "The Black Dog" and with the title as "Xeper". This has been corrected in track list. Further, this is an alternate version/remix of the album track that appears on Bytes. The artist Xeper is generally considered as a one man alias, but all three members of Black Dog Productions are credited as writers here and all three are participating in the booklet interview.

    Massively underrated compilation. Pressing is superb for the time period. Well worth grabbing a copy if you can.
    • novymir's avatar
      I remember buying most of these titles in the now closed Tower Records. IDM golden age
      • Lagartone's avatar
        Does someone knows which edit of "space track" by cosmic baby is on this vinyl ?
        • AskeladdenBlack's avatar
          Worth tracking down as there are quite a few exclusives on this release.

                'Trance Europe Express' is a timeless compilation made by the people from Volume with a full-information 192 page book. The repertoire represents an excellent choice of what we used to call trance music, with a more sophisticated use of the elements in the music composition. That's the case in the brain dance 'Semi-detatched', from Orbital, with an elegant use of TB 303 bassline. Bandulu's 'Gravity Pull' shows a very well made techno trance full of melodies and with a smart use of drum machine, and the veteran Thomas Fehlmann also appears with his Readymade alias, in a futuristic conception on 'Face the Day'. Through spacey melodies and textures, System 7’s ‘Desir’ makes us reflect if musicianship really depends only on the technology; ‘Persuasion’ brings a lyric vocal esthetic under melodies and a modulated synth base from Spooky. The diversity is also evident when we hear the more minimal-abstract tribalism of Material’s ‘Mantra’, or in the sweet percussion involved by textures and a lovely piano solo of The Black Dog’s ‘Xeper’. The different conception of the genre of this serie also counts on the trancy bassline of ‘Celestial Symphony’, or the dub influences on the introspective 030’s ‘Midnight in Europe’. The teutonic influences, like Barbarella's 'The Mission' and 'Space Track' from Cosmic Baby couldn't be anywhere else, and the belgian label R&S gave CJ Bolland's 'Random' and 'The Color of the Sun', from Mellowy MLO. The deep abstract experimentalism of Aphex Twin’s ‘Analogue Bubblebath 3’, the shadowy figures of Psychick Warriors Ov Gaia, Moby, The Orb, Source and Trance Induction complete the amazing selection. Don’t miss the chance to read the book, a legacy in electronica.
