9/10 Ant Staff review, 26 August 2010
This is a startling icy futuristic composition originally released on private tape in 1974. The twenty minute piece builds from cold pulsating snares that become very hypnotic and then huge waves of cascading synthesizer. I guess it's fairly minimal in terms of its component parts but the overall effect and attention to detail is magnificent. For more contemporary comparisons I'd say it's like a cross between Hecker, Richie Hawtin and Pete Namlook. Flip the record for a couple of remixes, the first of which is by Pole. In his capable hands the reshape takes on new life as a shuffling metallic head nodder with deep late night listening potential. Finally a remix from borngräber and strüverborngräber has a slow stomping kick that reminds me of Daft Punk's 'Da Funk'. Over its 10:32min duration it builds into a fairly brooding and sleazy techno track that could have come out of Belgium in 1989. All three tracks are winners!
