As with the Surkit Chamber reissue by A.r.t.l.e.s.s, this collection of tracks from unsung hero Martin Bonds is jaw-dropping purely for the age of the music against how advanced it sounds. Detroit radiates out of every ounce of this original techno, whether in subtle rhythms as on "Sundog", or in blindingly bright layers of futuristic melody as on "Vessels In Distress". Even if you sometimes find really early Detroit techno production to lacking some punch, this and any other Reel By Real material will put paid to that. Just try denying the awesome power of the bassline on "Serene". Highly recommended.
