Mixmag have called on fabled promoter Sean McLusky to put together this finely honed collection of early 90s "synth wizards". Skipping over the genre boundaries that mattered less in those early days, this double pack draws on less obvious selections from a range of house and techno visionaries with chops to match their production skills. You can hear Adamski in full-tilt piano pounding mode, Mr Monday getting misty eyed in a hail storm of chords and arpeggios, 808 State breaking the mould of acid house freakery, Nexus 21 taking hardcore into spacier realms and Altern-8 shocking the senses with full frequency rave abandon. One for serious collectors and inquisitive minds alike.
