This release will come as a surprise for anyone who thought of Faki as simply a purveyor of big room techno. Admittedly, his take on Philippe Petit's "Suspended" is dance-floor friendly, but its rolling beats and spiky percussion are subtle and understated, as are the acid lines that arc and build gradually through the arrangement. Faki's take on Slam's "Cirklon Bells" is even more unexpected, with atmospheric piano keys and a soft-focus approach underpinned by subtle, broken beats. The last act in this unexpected act comes courtesy of his take on Scuba's "Black On Black". Nagging acid and ice cool synths make for a functional but atmospheric end to this release of surprises.
