    Guess I’m in the minority here but to me this is a very very boring comp. a few decent tunes but come on… first half of second side is a redundant joke. My guess is people mostly like this for the mystique and aesthetic of the label than the actual music

      Lovely music but once again the download via MPO did not work. Luckily the label was forthcoming when I mailed them.

        This compilation worked very well in 2017's independant 'obscure' (à la mode) scene. Andy Rantzen's track was the hit and been played in mixes/clubs quite a lot while the rest of compilation certainly be played a lot at home.
        An outstanding selection of amazing recordings from a period where creativity was alive and full of secrets.
        I think and hope we will hear a second chapter till this one stars to get old!

        We can notice a large amount of copies pressed, and that's zuuuuper ! The pressing is excellent.
        + It permitted to get a lot of stuff released from Andy Rantzen.

          Incredible collection of 80's obscure Australian minimal wave and experimental music - much of it on the legendary M-squared label. Every track a winner. Kudos to the Efficient Space label for putting this together.
