"Nostalgik.1 is the first in a small series of recovered unreleased material from the Plastikman archives that sound as timely now than when originally recorded. Born from a similar vein of Plastikman classic's 'Sickness' and 'Panikattack', both of these tracks echo the tripped out, synthetic groove that came out of Richie Hawtin's Windsor Ontario Canada studios in the mid-1990's. 'Snark' builds and bubbles with its muted kick, signature Hawtin hi-hat programming and a snappy snare that manically pops like a firecracker. Recent edits by Berlin's Ricardo Villalobos help bring the schizophrenic hiccups and flares into the mix, building then rapidly dropping the beat, steering the track into even more loopy territory. 'Aquatik' moves along a similar axis as 'Snark' but walks closer in hand with Hawtin's Hardtrax, Robotman and Concept 1 identities. The off-kilter soul of Plastikman is undeniably present here as Hawtin tunes into the darker area of the dancefloor thru experimental sounds and effects. Hawtin's mixing and production from this era shows how his surgically-loose and unique off-balance rhythms can bend and flex within the lower frequencies."
