Absolutely awesome piece of ambient groove by Dr. Walker of Air Liquide. Would love to see this as a 2LP so it can be cut loud.

Love this album, had it on repeat the past few days. It is definitely the successor to It's Tomorrow Already. Some could say that makes it sound dated but I think this is timeless. I'm with the other reviewers, LSD where is the double LP version of ... See full review

Sure would be nice if Tresor would re-issue this as a 4lp! Perhaps even a well deserved box set is in order for the Godfather of techno??

Excellent late 90's downtempo, instrumental hip hop styled album. Somewhere in the neighborhood of DJ Krush, Massive Attack and the like. Surprised it was not released on Mo' Wax.....

So much great music coming out of ...txt, every cd is a 'buy on sight' proposition! Right now is a great time to be into ambient, idm, experimental. Do yourself a favor and also check out Carpe Sonum, Databloem, and Silent Season, all great labels.

Anyone have a copy of this that is on the Craft Recordings label rather than Warner Bros? Mine has the Craft logo and catalog number CR00002. Is this a promo only item?

posted a comment on E-Dancer - The Dream. about 1 year ago
Yet another excellent E-Dancer single! The Dream is a slow moving building track which takes it back to early-to-mid 90's, great track. Loop Me Again on the flip is a breakbeat housey track, which is good but the a side is the gold here.

Absoutely beautiful album! I'm surprised that no one has commented on this yet. This is Lee Norris (Metamatic, Norken, etc) in a much more ambient setting. Definitely one you should seek out.

Wow, quite the weird tracklist here. The first 9 make total sense, moving up through the 80's then we pretty much skip house and techno completely and add in some late model hip hop, dubstep and whatever style you want to call Jamie XX. Completely ... See full review

Why doesn't Rephlex re-issue this stuff, or for that matter any of their early catalog not that I'm going to buy this. Don't put things on your records like "bootlegs are anti-braindance" if you are not willing to put out re-issues of popular records.

Love this album! I can't be sure but guessing that Aythar must also be a fan of early 90's ambient techno, in the Apollo, Rising High, Warp with some Orb mixed in for good measure. Highest praise I can give, spacing out right now.....
