Aux 88 Mad Scientist Volume 3. PBX 30 Sep 11 Electro. The most conventional version is Andrez Bergen's take on "Electronic Underground". Using tribal drums and shards of glitchy percussion, the epic, soaring synths nonetheless remind the listener what city "Underground" originated from.
Arne Weinberg's take on "Underground" is more rooted in the Detroit techno narrative with doubled up claps and a wiry groove underpinning more subtle melodic bursts, but the highlight comes from G Man. It's been a long while since Gez Varley worked under this guise, but his symphonic string-led take on "Shadow Dancing" is a reminder of his prowess as a techno producer. PBX 16 Sep 11 Techno. The title track starts with glistening, crystalline synths, joined shortly by a raw, buzzing bass that ripples its way through a shuffling techno groove as Ice Truck's angelic vocals play out in the background.
It's a far cry from Keith Tucker's origins as an electro artist. The evolution is made all the more apparent on the instrumental version, where the vocals are stripped away and the bass sounds more epic.
Aux 88 follows a similar approach with "Astral Projections"; the bass is more streamlined and pile-driving and an eerie hardcore synth plays out over the arrangement.
The release also includes an interlude version of "Projections", with Erika Tele in freestyle mode. PBX 29 Oct 12 Techno. Electro Slaves. Traditional electro is typically the order of the day here which, when produced with such aplomb as is here, not necessarily a bad thing.
Lastly, "Lock Groove", updates the sound somewhat with breakbeats and acidic squelches. PBX 11 Feb 08 Electro. PBX 27 Jun 11 Techno. Mad Scientist remixes Vol 2. If we leave this contradiction to one side, there is no doubt that producers like Gosub and Mr Velcro Fastener are leaders in their field.
Gosub's version of "Extraterrestrial Time Traveller" features a an electro funk bass and pitched down robot vocals talking about 'sterilisation', while his velcro fastening colleague opts for a wiry rhythm and eerie synth melodies.

PBX 11 Jul 11 Techno. These tracks are spacey and atmospheric, tailor made for those smoke filled underground floors.

A big EP of raw electronic music which will both educate and entertain! Black Tokyo. Bands that release an album every one to two years are particularly guilty of this— it's almost unavoidable when they crank out hit singles to engage in pervasive airplay.
A side-effect of this was the tendency of bands with long songs , such as Black Sabbath and King Crimson , to add "subtitles" for different sections of the songs, in order to make it seem like there were more songs and they would be paid full royalties this happened to The Mars Volta too, who were told that for the original version of Amputechture they'd only be paid for an EP despite its length, so they were forced to add "subsections" and split songs apart to get full royalties.

Double albums were especially prone to this, due to the sheer amount of work required for two LPs of material resulting in many of these four-sided projects being littered with filler in order to justify releasing it on two discs.
