Former Cabaret Voltaire member Richard H. Kirk is widely regarded as one of techno's busiest men, a distinction he's picked up through a release schedule that keeps discographers sweating and die-hard fans near bankruptcy. This album focused on ethnic influences more than any of Kirk's previous releases, and pointed to the directions he'd take in his future projects. In 1987, Kirk and Hope released a full-length titled Hoodoo Talk; Wax Trax! released the album in the United States. Under his own name, he released Virtual State (1994) and The Number of Magic (1995) on Warp. Ambient techno albums as Electronic Eye followed on Beyond.

Kirk is widely regarded as contemporary techno's busiest man, a distinction he's picked up through a release schedule that keeps discographers sweating and diehard fans near bankruptcy.

The first album from Kirk’s celebrated Sandoz alias was a landmark release for the emergent ambient techno and electronica scene. The influence of acid house is apparent in urgent opener ‘Armed Response’, but there’s a depth to the production which stands out compared to the lo-fi baby steps made by younger producers of the era. From the energetic, electronic start the album evolves to take in some of the world music influences that would come to define Sandoz. Having helped cement the early sound of Warp Records, Kirk returned to the label in 1994.
