Review:

 

This record is full of harsh, psychedelic-techno noises. This sound shows a

deep Industrial influence and probably kicks ass on a very good stereo.

Increasingly though, I find the psy-tech sound suffers greatly, losing all its

interesting bits, in the white noise of stereos with even the tiniest bit of

distortion. Also, fundamentally it's just not that interesting.

Unfortunately the techno that it seems to borrow from is the harsh UK techno

sound, more an exercise in toughing it out rather than the wonderful (to my

ears) organic, minimal Detroit sound.

Worth picking up if you really liked the DJ Dede comp off Psychedelic Deli.

Too clangy and harsh for my general tastes, although much of it will rock the

night pretty well. My fave was track 7. Also i noticed something weird with

this cd. Track one is repeated at the end of the album as an extension of

track 8 (maybe to bump the total cd time to 78 mins therefore making it harder

to make copies of the cd or something)

Best tracks: Sandman, very goooood, one of the best sandman track. Activate

morlack, brings a psychotic sound, full on at his best... Sinister funk track

is very good too, different style, but i liked it. Underground atmosphere in

this comp.
