Video


The audio quality of this compilation seems to be very low, for some reason. For example, I was really excited to get the La Paix track, but unfortunately it sounds absolutely terrible.
Awesome little ambient techno comp from 95, from a label that seems to have only put out this one release. According to Discogs their mission was to release compilations blending CD-ROM visuals with music on the same disc, and as such the first track here is unplayable on a regular CD player (they warn it will damage your speakers). I haven't tried watching it on my computer, but apart from that element the music itself is prime mid-90s ambient techno. I got this on Amazon for $4 with shipping, so if you're a fan of this era and style of electronica, hunt it down for cheap. Just don't let track 1 fry your system.
