(from MECCA EP 12″, AXIS, 1993)

‘Step To Enchantment (Stringent)’

Immaculately grooving hard techno that manages to sound at once dense and low-slung; an eternal dancefloor killer.

JM: “Did I imagine that these tracks would become so influential? No, not really. Back then there were so many fantastic tracks being released, I was happy simply to hear DJs playing mine. This period had a high output of solid releases by many artists, and I assumed it would actually increase over time. These tracks were released at a time when many of us weren’t really aware of how and what we should do, so we were just doing what felt good. Other than high sales, we didn’t know what the reward could be. A successful track wasn’t really directly connected to getting more DJs bookings or magazine interviews, etc. I guess the business of Techno Music had not fully set in yet.”
