**100 copies limited edition. In process of stocking** 'This release sees De Fabriek working with Ausland, also known as Roberto Auser (also known as Derk Reneman), whom I had not heard before. Judging by the labels who release his work (Viewlexx, Enfant Terrible, Charlois etc.) is someone with a background in more techno-based music. Not that this shows on this release. The seventy-four minutes are filled with four long pieces and one short opening shot. As said, the music has very little to do with techno music and is, perhaps, something more along the lines of what one would expect from De Fabriek. I have no idea who did what here - for some reason, the few words about the proceedings are in French, but none, it seems, shed light on the proceedings. The music here is electronic, moody and synth-based.

If one looks at the history of the De Fabriek and where they are coming from, then this album fits the ideas set out by Conrad Schnitzler, not just his earlier electronic pieces, but also in using samples of instruments from his later work. The result is quite strange. There seems to be not much continuity within a piece (none of which have a title). In the middle of a piece, things can stop and continue with something else, like starting a new song. I thought it could be a coding error, but I am sure that is not the case. This too is a freaky bunch of music, and it never goes out of control. Whoever is responsible for the mix,  let's things go on for a substantial amount of time, but it never becomes dull. It was quite a strange one and it took me some time to be convinced by it, but the more I hear, the more details I hear, and the more I enjoy it.' - Frans de Waard / Vital Weekly
