This double-disc mix from a most proficient techno turntablist rouses quite a squall, especially on disc two, which reminisces the deeply beatless yet unrelenting uteri pound of a Jeff Mills track: bottomless, rich, textured, ingressive. The proponents of overly proscribed minimalism that currently holds court over listeners and critics could learn a great deal from the acutely improvisational techniques of these pulsating oscillators. Track selections include Wink, Villalobos, Liebing and Dear, and all are perfectly subterranean.
