[4 UTR QDM1]

Pieces Of A Pensive State Of Mind

Missin’ You EP

Exactly 25 years ago, in January 1994, U-TRAX released an EP from a new young talent from the Utrecht area. His name: Frank de Groodt, who’s debut Missin’ You EP immediately established his name as a techno and electro phenom. This re-release of the original techno beauty is the first of two releases that U-TRAX will put out in January 2019 to celebrate Frank’s 25th anniversary as a recording artist.

Pieces Of A Pensive State Of Mind

All four tracks on this re-press have been remastered for maximum impact, including two versions of the title track.

4 UTR QDM1 labels A+B

Like all beautiful art, Missin’ You is inspired by heartache, referring to a lost love. This track appeared a year prior on the notorious Drome Tapes cassette label, the predecessor of U-TRAX.
The Awax Reorganisation is a remix by U-TRAX label boss DJ White Delight, with the help of DJ Zero One and Frank himself, transforming it into a long ambient-ish technotrip.
The flipside is where things get even more exciting, with the funky Detroit-techno style Echoic, still a favorite of popular modern-day DJs like Hunee.
We have to issue a small warning regarding the closing track: the bassdrums are deformed by a flanger and reverb and the combination with the latest record cutting technology makes Channel Pressure not only a freaky and pumping track, the disorienting sound can also make the audience on the dancefloor a little nauseous!
