Double LP version; CD version is deleted. "It's hard to categorize this Seattle Techno veteran, but let's give it a shot. Codebase is a versatile blend of Electro, Detroit-influenced Techno, and Deep House. Part Drexciya, part Juan Atkins, part Global Communications, Tom Butcher aka Codebase's melodics and electronics are at once starkly futuristic and gloriously timeless. Rather than so much so called Electro out there, Codebase goes for the jugular revitalizing the roots of the movement without sounding redundant. Along with label mate Mike Shannon, Butcher is one of a new generation of electronic artists more interested in the revisionary, as opposed to visionary, aspects of Techno. A solid offering of memorable music that seeps with energy and funk. Codebase has already released singles on Swayzak's 240 Volts imprint and the legendary but now defunct Orbit Records plus has recorded under a variety of alias that include Betamax, Heatsync, .x09, and Induction."
