Just to make it clear because it isn’t with the tracklisting (!!) :
The A version is the regular extended vocal version.
The B1 is the remix version ( the one that starts like Juan Atkins remix).
The B2 version is a dub edit of B1.
And B3 is an... See full review

For those wondering, the Club Mix is the remix from Liaisons D.* - He Chilled Out (Remix), while the Move Club Mix is the original from Liaisons D - Sirenas and Sirenas (Metronome mix) is the original mix from Liaisons D - Sirenas too. Long I hoped these were alternative mixes, but no. We'll got to do... See full review

Great electronic creativity here, but IMHO the great track is "Nice Days", a pounding and yet emotional piece, with a catchy bass and slightly rising acid lines that really takes you beyond. Must have been a pleasure to dance to in raves back then.

Repressing some old school hits can be a cash-in option. And it can be a true homage that propels a classic toward new audiences and make it relevant to a new scene. That's what the guys at Nocturbulous did with this one. Not only offering a carefully... See full review

Another great example of a B-side beating the A side, and being absolutely stellar! This was one of the first early New Beat releases despite not being slow as the classics others. But the mood and strangeness were there, and it really propelled you... See full review

Nice megamix, but mostly interesting for its exclusive track on B-side, especially the B1 mix which is a piece of techno-house typical of the time and of the BOY records sound, full of atmosphere.

At that point the New Beat Take X series from Subway was going sideways, and this compilation gathered oddly-chosen tracks : some nearly 2 years-old over-compiled classics, some silly cash-makers, some decent club-oriented house stuff, and some... See full review

If you pass on the fact that most tracks are edited to something of a single version (aim at the CD version if you want them complete), this is an excellent collection of what was the heavy side of New Beat and Acid New Beat. A bit of a late... See full review

Yes, tracks were edited violently, but unlike many others of the period, this compilation really gathered so many gems, including some very obscure and difficult to find ones. The kind of compilation that were hints to find more, and still catches the... See full review

Obviously an "answer" to Space Trax - Vol 2. but IMHO less energetic, even if it has a nice industrial touch. Btw the rhythms sample is of course taken from Pet Shop Boys - Suburbia.

The 30 page booklet unfortunately shows the same ugly ultra-pixelated images than in the inner sleeve of LP and booklet of CD from 2003. A shame ASO wasn’t able to give them decent quality pictures. Or, if it was intentional, then of the rare time... See full review

First the bad news : this is a great 180 pressing, but, straight out of the plastic wrap, background noise is quite present.

This record is strongly underestimated, not for its cool main track, regular mix being a nice moody house track, but for the Sacrifice Mix which is an unoticed hard techno monster, in the vein of Mental Cube. Yes It does.

Listening to this piece again, I feel that all the tracks were slightly accelerated (between +5 to +8) compared to the 12 inches. Perhaps an attempt to pass from the New Beat era to the coming Hard beat and Techno-house period that was coming in 1989,... See full review

Nice and moody track from FSOL, great, even if too short. The Monolake track that follows is a bit fast and strongly techno compared to the usual works from M. Henke, but with his trademark warping atmospheric feel. Then her comes David Morley and... See full review

Excellent EP from start to finish. All tracks have a delicious retro feel propelled by a blasting modern production. What De:tuned does to electronica /ambient, Nocturbulous does for Techno-rave. Keep up the good work, guys!

Indeep, B is more like a techno remix of Moroder's "Utopia - Me Giorgio" track on the LP Giorgio* - From Here To Eternity, but accelerated and going really beyond the simple audio theft, by expanding it in a sophisticated moody techno-trance feel. A great track.

Acid breakbeat going berserk. The main attraction here is Psi-Shock, a relentless uptempo acid trance track, while the rest of the EP offers breakbeats layered with rolling acid waves and speeded up samples. Classic stuff from the period.
