Ambient and IDM have become the biggest part of my collection mostly through the excellent labels such as ...TXT, Carpe Sonum, Databloem, Virtual, Neo Ouija, Touched, and newer ones such as Fantasy Enhancing, Zeit and Neotantra labels. Artists such as Autumn of Communion, Ishq, Mick Chillage, Urban Meditation, Si Matthews, Steve Brand and so many more are releasing excellent music.

Also very interested in Detroit and Detroit-styled techno and electro from around the world. Favorites include Kenny Larkin, Sean Deason, Carl Craig, B12, As One, Terrace, Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Detroit Escalator Company, Convextion, Stasis, John Beltran, Stacey Pullen, Dan Curtin, Jeff Mills, Claude Young as well as some newer artists such as John Shima, Derek Carr, Darren Nye, Morphology, etc. And of course anything Drexciya-related.

Surprised that no one has seen fit to review this ep. Really quite nice, Detroit styled techno, underrated. The AW remix on the A side is a track you should be searching for. Droids of Desire is also quite good and The Mannequins Romance moves a ... See full review

Just got this in the mail today, essential listening for anyone that is a fan of early 90's techno from Europe. Think B12, As One, Kenny Larkin, Carl Craig, etc. Still a few left on his bandcamp page.......

In the age of re-issues, why has Warp not seen fit to reissue this, maybe they do not own the rights any longer. Just wish this would get a nice reissue, gatefold, 180g vinyl......one of the best Detroit techno lp's ever.....

Not sure why anyone would pick this ep up? All of these tracks (in their original longer formats) are available on the Guidance 2LP. Invaders alone is over 11 minutes in length and sounds much better for it, avoid.

Really a great listen through and through. I do not have the other cd's so need to be on the lookout for those. This appears to be his most recent release, is anyone aware if David is producing music under another alias?

Why are they using the same cover art as Alec Empire's 1996 release Hypermodern Jazz 2000.5? Seems the 'art director' is a bit lazy.

I can confirm that the track ("Gather" or "Motel Gather" depending at what pressing you are looking at) clocks in at only 2 minutes long. How does this happen? I guess if you look at who put this out (Hidden Art - who also put out a grey area reissue ... See full review

Hmm, no reviews on this one? This seems to be an under appreciated Cabaret Voltaire lp. Definitely better than the last 2 for Parlaphone. Sounds as if they were listening to the 'bleep' techno, early Warp LFO sound that was becoming popular at the ... See full review

Don't miss this, or any Fantasy Enhancing release! All tracks are great but Entering Atlantis and Sonnensturm are worth the price of admission alone. Super deep spacey atmospherics, buy on sight.

Jump on this, Gabriel Le Mar and Dr. Motte collaboration. Very nice downtempo/ambient techno full length on Carpe Sonum's Novum sub label. The Fall (595 nM version) is worth the price of admission alone but the whole album is excellent.
posted a comment on Cabaret Voltaire - Body And Soul. about 1 year ago
Definitely worth getting if you are into the early Warp or bleep techno sound of the early 90's. Do have to wonder who/why did the crap design of this record/cd? Hopefully this will get a nice 2LP reiusse / redesign.
