Re-mastered for a new generation, Revisited brings together some of UK veteran Aubrey's finest moments. The release starts with the frenetic "Inner Passions Out", a fast-paced metallic rhythm that jerks and jacks in the finest Detroit tradition. "Rapid Fix" is next, with Aubrey dropping the tempo and delivering layered, hypnotic bleeps and menacing drones, while "Behind The Mirror" sees the UK producer match jazzy keys with an off-centre, stepping rhythm - a good decade before this approach became fashionable. The final track shows that Aubrey was ahead of his time in other ways, and "Strange Life" is a driving, toolish affair with mad alarm bells going off.
Two of UK techno's most experienced producers go head to head on this new release on Sims' label. Allen Saei aka Aubrey has been making dance floor friendly yet esoteric techno for nearly twenty years, but "Centrifuge Azul" marks a shift in his approach. Screeching riffs and gritty beats are combined for one of Saei's most visceral tracks to date. There's a similar approach on "Neurosis", but on that occasion, wild acid lines and dark, noisy percussive bursts are combined over insistent filters. "Double Image" is heavy duty material too, with thunder claps and a buzzsaw bass dominating the arrangement. Try as he might, the heavy drums and insistent filtering on Sims' version of "Double Image" can't quite match this intensity.
