Thomas P. heckmann’s Drax – Tales From The Mental Plane was perhaps too far ahead and experimentalin style to achieve commercial success as Amphetamine did, but it was an astonishing release nevertheless. Tracks such as Mental Surface or Bathe The Room In Light wires Heckmann’s trademarkabstract electronics with circular Electro rhythms and alien atmospherics to craft a dramatic, innovative sound that anticipated many of the developments which percolated through Techno in the years afterwards. Even now this still sounds like an album from outer space. Hard-as-nails grooves, other-worldly melodies and unconventional imaginative leaps make this the definitive Heckmann release (Tim Barr, Techno The Rough Guide) And now for the first time with all tracks that span the CD and Vinyl in remastered form !
