In the mid-'90s, Bryn Jones aka Muslimgauze sent JD Twitch of Optimo CD-Rs of unreleased material, including the track featured here in slightly edited form (along with Victor Shan and Gerd Janson's "Rave Mix"). Jones dated the track to 1985, which means that he pre-empted UK hardcore by about five years -- especially remarkable given his use of tape loops instead of samplers. Mysterious male/female Italian duo Underspreche debut on the AA-side. "Flowers from the Lake" samples (with permission) field recordings of the Kenyan Mijikenda tribes (HJR 068CD/LP, 2013); the exquisite hypno-techno of "Naked" exudes a warmth rare in modern techno.
