More raids on the vaults of the sainted UK techno imprint Likemind, long-deemed impenetrable but now very much in play after that welcome reissue of Nuron material from a little while back.  It’s Stasis’ turn in the limelight here, who plucks ‘Artifax’ and ‘Monolife’ from Likemind 1 + 3 for this retrospective on his own Fencepiece label.  There’s not much to add that’s not already been said about the already released tracks - pure, golden era UK techno - ‘Artifax’ with its squirming acid line set against dreamy pads and glacial synth keys, together with the a new, more broken mix of ‘Monolife’.  But it’s previously unreleased EPIC ‘Occasions & Adventures’ that we’re here for, stretching out over 10 minutes with its runaway bassline, spluttering percussion and emotional string sweeps, eventually collapsing into a huge, swirling breakdown before gathering itself for 2 more minutes of prime UK techno bliss.   Makes ya wonder could it have been even better if all this stuff ran past the 10 minute mark.  A big one for the die hards!  (Mint / New)
