    Night Drive (Thru-Babylon) is a stone cold classic, beautiful, melancholic, dark and mysterious.

      Great EP obviously but that's nothing new. One point that I am surprised nobody's brought up yet; the first two tracks are the same, 2)Time Space Transmat being the instrumental of 1)Night Drive. Confusing I know.

        First time I heard No UFO's (D-Mix), I thought it was a new track by The Hacker.

        Now I'm here on this release page, and 1985 is the release year.

        Mind. Blown.

            This might be my favorite of any of the original Detroit hits. It's stuff like this that makes me think that Juan Atkins was a lot more talented than May or Saunderson.

              Juan was inspired by the drone of automated factories and trips down the I-96 freeway late at night, he once said in an interview.

              That's why these track sound so dark and mysterious.

                early dark acid type track which was the final chapter for juan and rick davis{3070}.it originally was going to be a cybotron release but due to choosing different musical paths,juan put it out on his metroplex label.original pressing mint green label/black text as pictured,was later released blue label/blue text,blue label/black text and white label blue/gold text also pictured,and i still listen to it to this day.

                  Hardcore electro! Dark and futuristic a la 80´s.
                  No softness in this record. Is he descibing a nightmare or a utopia? Macine-coded beats with icecold basslines.Chilly reverbs (clinic). And a text that brainwashes you!
                  Far away from today´s standards.
                  Enfore.

                    "Time Space Transmat" is one of these great productions which made this kind of music big in the mid-80ies. Juan mediates us his high-tech visions in his early tracks in an incredible way.
