1 review. Write a review for us »
Essential newly remastered all-time classic compilation of timeless Detroit techno from the master Carl Craig. Kicking off with the future jazz of Psyche's 'Elements' and into darker terrain with a personal fave 'From Beyond'. These tracks seem to transcend time, despite their age they still sound as fresh, vibrant and vital to this day. Taking into account the more primitive technological means available it's really dazzling how these tracks stand head and shoulders above many of todays productions. Oozing with soul, funk, integrity and science fiction escapism.
This music wasn't part of a fashion rather it created many that exist today. This is foundation electronic / dance music mixing pure Detroit techno soul with emerging UK breakbeat culture. The original set has been expanded from six to nine tracks to include 'Crackdown', 'Andromeda' and 'Evolution. It's a bit of a shame it didn't mirror the 1996 CD edition on Planet E and include 'Sleep' for example but then just to have this back in print with three extras is a welcome bonus. If you don't already know the genius of the magical, haunting 'Neurotic' Behaviour then you're in for a ride. If you have the original double 12" set or even the original Transmat 12"s it's still worth bagging in it's remastered form in beautiful gatefold sleeve.
