Hey, I have an A and B label on mine... So, it would not be affecting all copies. Whole EP is really nice!

Any idea which release this was?

Ok so this is now a pricey record. Genuinely hard to come by I’m so glad I got this from the source back in the day. It really is a special one. If you were to pick out one piece of vinyl from the Juice back catalogue that really defines how visionary ... See full review

My copy sounds excellent! I reckon it’s a 140g, not super thick.
Push the button and get a copy!!!!
posted a comment on It's Thinking - Hyperion. 8 months ago
Brilliant and timeless techno release that’s a standout on the Prime label. B side is typically solid European mid 90s techno very much like much of the 100% Pure ilk of the time.
Hyperion is next level - wonderfully lush and melodic breakbeat techno ... See full review

Secret weapon on this one is the instrumental on A2. Spacey echoey number that almost has a techy feel (in a good way!). Pitch this down 4% (it's a little fast IMHO) and it works a treat in a deep set of any description....
Overall this is a great EP.

Absolute top quality release from Stefan Robbers under the Con Man alias. The older reviews have cited the cheap price however looking now this one has certainly reached a tipping point as demand outweighs supply.
In terms of the tunes despite the ... See full review

Appian - G381 is a fantastic deep house cut. Not formulaic in any way. Seek this one out as its flown under the radar!
posted a comment on M:I:5 - Autogen 10. about 1 year ago
Brilliant release of stripped back analogue goodness. All tracks are quirky, unique and somewhat irreverent with the standout for me being Motor Funk. A really apt name - a true paradox of a mechanical stripped back drum track that also happens to be one ... See full review

Good call.
I did this (except the bin part) but not for reasons of vinyl degradation. The original PVC sleeve was a pain if you wanted to get the vinyl out quickly when DJing. Still have the marbled grey version in a generic black cover and white paper ... See full review

Fresh production with old school house flavours. Floating is the highlight for me with warm layered 303 lines pulling together a fantastic deep acid house workout

Just acquired this release. Terminus has not aged well. Meditatiion is outstanding and was perhaps overlooked back in the day. Much subtler and builds nicely. md comments detail this well in the below review

I missed this on release and have only picked it up 15 yrs later. The title track Airaid actually reminds me strongly of the old Sonic Solution Bagdad/Arab Girl release on R&S from the early nineties. Quite a ravey feel to it so whilst it's a 2002 ... See full review

Just got a copy of this and completely agree with funk_wid_it. 'Ded Lo' is a fantastic bleep track in the classic style. Punchy kicks, sub bass and plenty of bleeps. Nice!

This is great news
Music is produced to be shared, to challenge, and to inspire.

The middle of the 3 releases with Stefan Robbers lurking as R.E.C which generally aligned with gritty techno tracks.
Powerplant is very typical of the Djax sound of the early 90s - stripped back drum tracks with stilted percussion plus weird acid lines. ... See full review

Artwork on this release looks just like the first 2 Shiver records. Anyone know if it's the same artist?
That aside, interesting record this one. The A side almost sounds like a 70's Sci Fi soundtrack rather than 'techno'.... Or perhaps they are the same ... See full review

Firstly I'm a massive fan of Eriks music but I'd sit somewhere between Manys and Joshelevator on this one. Sure, it's a well crafted retro electro number that I'd be happy to have in the collection but the asking price has just gone nuts! The recent ramp ... See full review

Couldn't agree more - very well said. Such a strong and varied release
Positive Visual is my favourite - standout lead synth and great vocal sample.
House of the deepest variety....

Pour Elle is the absolute highlight here and to me the pinnacle of any of the Trance Induction productions. Quite a contrast to what was to come from the DJAX releases which became increasingly harder and influenced by the hard Chicago and Acid techno ... See full review

Brilliant deep house release, once again on coloured vinyl with wonderful label art. Urania 2 is the standout - warm acid lines and super deep. Worth chasing this one!

I picked this one up back in 94 and initially gravitated to Demento as it worked in nicely with the harder Detroit techno at the time. Over the years I've come to appreciate just how good a release this really is. As other have said, it's probably the ... See full review

Ok, by the looks of it this has flown under the radar.
Think Metro Area with the funk dialled up. Great to drop into either a house or techno mix, pick your moment...
