NEW LOWER PRICE - Celebration of System 7's long, exciting relationship with original Godfather of Detroit techno, Derrick May.

Meshing funky lush Detroit techno soundscapes and tuff beats with System 7's haunting spacey grooves, the album showcases new mixes of rare and unreleased tracks from both System 7 and Derrick May, together and solo. It joins the dots from early deep and unbridled funky 90's techno through to today's more eclectic technoid soundscapes, including vintage highlights such as Rhythim Is Rhythim's 'Icon' masterpiece (the full version never released on CD before), the unreleased electro-tinged 'Prototype 1' and an exclusive System 7 track'E-merge'.

This compilation was put together Jan-Feb 2002.
