Long anticipated compilation of early Plaid (and alter ego) tracks, only released in the UK via Warp (no US-license scheduled). It contains lots of their classic tracks (a total of 26) including everything from their impossibly rare debut LP Mbuki Mvuki, as well as singles and comp tracks from the Black Dog Productions, Clear, Likemind, ART, Fuse and A13 labels. There are also 7 previously unreleased tracks. Feature tracks from: Plaid, Atypic, Balil & Tura. Recorded 1989 through 1995. Tracklisting: by Plaid: "Uneasy Listening", "Anything", "Slice Of Cheese", "Link", "Perplex","Summit", "Bouncing Checks", "Yak", "Scoobs In Columbia", "Chirpy", "Fly Wings", "Tan Sau", "Android", "Angry Dolphin". By Balil: "Eshish", North Route", "Whirling Of Spirits", "Choke And Fly", "Small Energies", "Uland". By Atypic: "Prig", "Blah", "Jolly". By Tura: "Letter", "Soft Key", "Reishi". Soft & eloquent non-jewel box packaging from Warp tops it all off. A set of desirable material which connects the dots from early acid house into the friendly clouds of ambient-influenced techno (ala Carl Craig or As One) into the the roots of more contemporary electronic music. "Old school friends Ed Handley and Andy Turner first started working together in 1989. They helped formed Black Dog Productions and in 1991 released an album called Mbuki Mvuki as Plaid. In addition to their work as Plaid they have released solo projects under the names Atypic, Balil and Tura ned have collaborated with others on several albums under the pseudonyms The Black Dog and Repeat. Trainer is a selection of the duo's early releases with a few previously unreleased tracks thrown in for good measure."
