Spaniard Tadeo has made a name for himself over the last decade as a strong purveyor of minimal/cyclical techno. After all: he is the man behind Cyclical Trax. Naturally, he was also one of the first producers to plunder the vaults of Jeff Mills' Axis and Purposemaker imprints, spurring on this newly invigorated tribute sound that is so popular of late. Tadeo does a damn fine job of it on this conceptual album, which just like The Wizard himself, takes its cues from classic futurist and sci-fi themes. It's all good on here, but we personally pick the majestic and beatless bleep-fest of "The Cyborg: The Man Merges With The Technology (Development Option #1)" (get used to it; all the track titles are more elaborate than on a Giorgio Gigli EP), the chugging peak time hypnotism of "A New Leader: The Machine Replaces The Man" and the darkly relentless "The Net: The Meta-Human Psyche Versus The Machine". Heavy!
