Literally have every single vinyl release of his in my collection or wantlist. Don't think I can say that about any other artist with more than a few records out. Most of his releases feature multiple tracks that I'd spin, again something unique to this artist. Deep, futuristic, timeless. Right up my alley. Really looking forward to his first vinyl album to come out soon, 'Contact.'

I know it's been a while since a proper release has come out and I'm not one to bash, but c'mon this deserves bashing. How do you go from MPX_309 & Muted Tracks to this?

Sour.

Sakura and Luna are dope and to me better than anything on his first EP on the label. To go on such a long rant of how mediocre this is makes no sense to me, just skip it and move on if you don't think it's impressive.

Back To The Void Remix > Loco Dice Remix
Vinyl is not purchase worthy in my book as it currently stands. But Loco Dice is a bigger name I guess...

Ben Parris - Double Wimpfighter EP as reviewed by ibbjamin

I remember hearing 'Loose Impediments' at a Drop Bass NYE Party in 2005 and noting it being the most standout tune of the night for me. At that time, I was branching out from straight harder edged techno and liking some more minimal flavored sauces. This was a tasty sauce for me, and the chef didn't skimp much on the meat in it either! This 12" ended up being a great transitional record for me as it still has all the slamming cellar door sounds and plenty of darkness to boot. It wasn't for a week or so later that I was able to ID it and buy it when listening to a grip of wax at my downtown vinyl shop.

There aren't many records on my minimal techno shelf that I can still work into a current set, but this one has stood the test of time and still wets my whistle.

Long story short, just one of my more treasured records in my collection regardless of the fact it looks to be selling for next to nothing. Rarity and jacked up prices should not have an affect on the importance of a record for you. This is something I think is lost in too many collector circles these days.

A timeless classic since I first heard it back in '04. Emotive with its beautiful synths and very vibey. I love laying it down as a closing tune. It just straight works. This sure is not like a lot of the rest of the techno I personally was buying at the time, it actually still gets play from me and is far from being too over the top for this old timer.

Doors are slowly opening. The view is quite vast but satisfying and calm. Not stretching, naturally expanding. Quite special it feels.
