why isnt "upper" just a bit longer like.. 3 minutes? with its 1:40-somethingitis what I call a cheeky teaser (:

a slightly longer mix would make an amazing tool - it's still is but you need a 3 deck setup to be able to play it.

the amount of action in the b1 is stunning, if you hear a fairly dull loop - geta a pair proper headphones or may the gods have mercy on your hearing ;)

my copies bought @ Hardwax at around 2016 were (still) signed by Mark Richardson - it's a pre-Prairie Cat signature -> they were cut at Metropolis studio so they are pre-2000 and pretty likely to be the original cuts.

what happened here?

side A2 sounds very well, sadly the B3 side sounds flat and lacks dynamics - different handwriting / signature too - definitely a different studio.
real shame as it's the B side that has (much) more potential in my opinion.

it's Simon @ The Exchange so the sound is excellent, as good as a record gets, BUT the plating / pressing of the C/D disc isnt perfect (to say the least)

the amount of crackle and pops on the essential D side is unacceptable for a new release, tried... See full review

I'd say - to their catalogue, this is what M6 is to Maurizio.

this will NOT age at all, this will be played by those "in the know" for (many) years to come, for a good reason.
fantastic record.

tbh I've never got to the end of the A side thanks to the highly annoying hi-pitched whistl-o-synth,
but the B side rates among my fave Planet E / Russ Gabriel releases.

any comparisons to MoWax are...perfectly justified :)

I think "Scorn" is a late nite dub of "Krautrock"- but it's a wild guess based on sonic similarities / shared elements.

from Liquidism, thru Souldancer, and Presence to Matters Anthem the man has not put a wrong foot.
easily one of the ultimately top producers in the mid-90s circuit.

praised and celebrated, but within a small, closed circuit,which is unfair imho.

the b1 track here has not aged one bit.
lovely thing.
the "esses" are quite difficult for most carts and you may be getting a bit distorted "iSS thiSS love I FFeel" but it doesnt really matter, it's still a great song and a pleasure to listen to.

best remix package that everybody bought ONLY to get a fresh copy of the original (:

which was ruined by extremely low signal to noise ratio.
it's a BS-collectors' item, no use of the discs in real-life situations.

a fave from the good old Tresor HQ boss... since his LL releases, phenomenal sonics too, records hardly get as crispy and vibrant as this one.

a proper techno record written & released in 2008 - that's quite impressive.

ICM housing, type II notch so it's probably late Chrome Plus formulation - this tape has to sound fantastic, (all WARP type II releases did)

Troy Geary is imo one of the unsung heroes of proper minimal techno.

Anything with a Vainqueur stamp is always invalueable, but

that's one of a kind type of track, which I didnt really "feel" as a teenager, but it became an old time fave as I got older.

as much as i love it for being fresh, properly pressed replacement.

great job, Delsin.

priceless reissue, got it mostly for Alastria, but all three will get a lot of playback this summer.
keep the DAT tape / wav files as chances are the demand exceeds the supply

Ive always kept it for Kat Race and Masterplan (here under "Alarms")

I think Adam Beyer, Marco Carola, Gaetek and Q-men were pretty obsessed upon making the ultimate 8-step (2/4) groove - compare this, Locomotive - middle 1, Xphase a1, and drum code 19 b2 -

there must be a weird story to it.

(on both sides, which is rare)

Ive checked a few 97/98 Orbit mixes by Nigel Walker ..and judging by those and the output of the Cold Dust / Radius / Red Seal I did miss out a lot.
