"Keith Tucker needs no further introduction, as being active since the early days of Detroit techno & electro. After his debut through Juan Atkin's Metroplex, he has been putting his stuff out through labels as 43OWest, Direct Beat and his own Puzzlebox Records of course. The tracks as Optic Nerve always brought the more soul techno things he does. With this album Optical he finally puts together some of his best material of the last ten years. New unreleased tracks come together with reworked versions of classic tracks as 'Shades of Grey' and 'Premonition'. The album brings Optic Nerve to full capabilities, always futuristic, always soulful, and always deeply techno."
