Less accessible than the near classic 'A Myx'd Trip To A Gospel House', this is still worth the investigation. It shows the American deejay/producer working with the Tribe's Zarc Porter and features Scott stretching out for an underground club sound. The ambient/tribal "Pathfinder" (with Limit X) and the acid jazz "When I Was A Child" are truly wonderful.

All music for all time comes to a focal point on this album.

I classify this album as dark trance.

Working with Zarc Porter from World Wide Message Tribe and experimenting with a sound that is a complete departure for the artist, this is a creation that any electronica afficianado simply can not die without hearing.
