Various - Blueprints For Modern (Techno)logy Vol. 1

AMAZING Plus 8 compilation from 1991.

You need to download this - it's a star-studded trip through the beginning of the Plus 8 label, featuring all the usual suspects. One of the first dance compilations I bought (pre decks so on CD as well!) - just check out that tracklisting.

I hadn't listened to this for about 15 years at a rough guess, until the other day when I dug it out. It's been on quite a few times since then, and hasn't lost any of its edge. So much so that I can't offer a pick o'the bunch as they're all fuckin fantastic.

If you want to know the producers behind the pseudonyms check out the Discogs listing here.

Proper fucking old-school techno...
