last copy of this we're ever going to see, straight from the Merck archives!! Esa Ruoho, who's also released Lackluster material on last year's surprise hit label deFocus, provides a few of his remixes as well as a couple unreleased tracks. The lead on the A-side is the gem, "Strateface/kcl0," where the strong electro edge for which Ruoho is known takes flight in a wonderfully detailed chime world full of synth notes that seem to float like dandelion seeds in the wind. For the remixes, Ruoho hits up Marumari's "Botany" (extracted from Supermogadon) and Machine Drum, lending his deft creation of airy sound stages to both.
