Jerome Hill's resolutely non fashionable Don't Recordings imprint may have taken some twelve years to reach its 20th release, but they do it with typical style on a double headed EP that manages to glance both backwards and forwards. Regarded as a major influence on the label, the presence of Planet Mu regular Neil Landstrumm is no less than a coup, and the Scottish producer elects to do something special, reworking two classic techno tracks from Blake Baxter and Joey Beltram. Programmed entirely from scratch without a hint of a sample, both "Brutality" and "Energy Cash" are uncompromisingly brilliant in their execution. Rebel Intelligence main man Matt Whitehead is on equally unflinching form with his two contributions "To The Beat" and "A Is For Acid" - both of them all too potent rave filled 303 explorations miles away from what Legowelt referred to as "boring contemporary shit they call techno nowadays".
