Ahhh I can remember the first time I put the needle on this record back in 2002. It was a moment I will never forget - and I do forget a lot of shit as my brain is slowly turning to mush.

I had picked up the Transllusion material on the short lived Tresor sub-label Supremat and fucking loved it but when this came along it changed my world. Being a total techno fiend at the time (still am) it ticked every single box (and still does). If you have the remotest interest in techno then this deserves to be in your collection. It's cerebral dancefloor funk perfection. A solid booming kick, emotionally resonant synths and a bassline to die for.

I can recall spinning this record; the sidelong 'Third Eye' track at parties and every time I would get someone come up to the decks going  "What's this fucking tune???" I remember one time 4 people in a line asking me the same thing - some of them producers/ artists. In my book this is a hidden Detroit classic that only could have come from the mind of Drexciya's James Stinson (R.I.P). Sadly he was aware at the time that he didn't have long left on this planet before he would make his transition to the stars. It's a sad tale but he lives on through his music and this record among many of his stands out as a pure statement of intent - Embrace the joy of dancing, forget about the grind and be in another place, be transported - Go astral on hi-tech soul.

My original copy has more than a little wear so I'm bagging a copy of this warehouse find as a back-up. I love this record so much it almost makes me shed a tear thinking about it and the place where James was when he released it unto the world. Prime material from arguably one of the Motor City's finest creative minds of the "second-wave". Hands punching in the air anthem alert which will still do the job ten years on. The flipside is cool too don't get me wrong, but shit… THIRD EYE!!!!
