Boomkat Product Review:
Early ‘90s ambient techno gems resurface on the Nacht En Nevel label, featuring Mappa Mundi’s keenly sought-after 11-minute beauty Trance Fusion, and the rolling breakbeat suspension system of Quin².
Mappa Mundi’s Trance Fusion is a firm favourite of ours. Taken from the Musaics album which also includes the masterful Sexafari, this 11 minute roller is a prime example of the 2nd layers beyond dancefloors of 1990, plumbing a lushly meditative space somewhere between Detroit, Antwerp and Goan beaches. Fair to say you might want to get a hold of the CD or original (hard to find) LP version for louder cuts, but this one will do nicely until Going Good’s Brian Not Brian follows up on a reissue of the full album.
Quin²’s side is a more obscure find from slightly later in the ‘90s, working somewhere between FSOL Lifeforms vibes and Carl Craig’s Innerzone Orchestra with crisp, rolling breaks and strings beautifully suspended in the mix.
