For such a long time this VA 12" sampler for the Techno 2: The Next Generation compilation was the only way that you could get the classic Psyche - 'Elements' on 12" ! Carl Craig finally released it on 12" on his own Planet E imprint in 2004 !

You'll find other reviews on the additional 12" pressings. Also on the main Techno 2:The Next Generation compilation page itself of course.

littlemartin: What about 'Frequency' ? It isn't (and never has been) considered a "bleeps n bass" track. Laurent X - 'Machines' also has bleepy parts, are we going to call that a "bleep" tune (as well as acid) as well? The same for 'To Be Or Not To Be' ... See full review

A longer and slightly different mix of Blake Baxter's 'Work' was also released on KMS Records the same year. On the KMS Records 12" it is called 'Body Work'. There was also a 'Work (Remix)' that was released through Incognito Records a few years later.
