About this item

The 1990's was an incredible decade for techno - especially if you bought the releases being pressed and then shipped globally on a weekly basis out of Birmingham in the UK.

Simple Elements "9.2%" originally came out on Ideal Trax in 1997 and over the years has become a holy grail among underground DJ`s and record collectors.

Nicky B, the artist behind the Simple Elements moniker and resident DJ from long running techno mecca, The House Of God, has decided to re-release the original double pack on his new label, Prisoner Of Sound Records.

This double pack is a collection of the first tracks Nicky ever wrote and is an insightful glimpse into the mind of an artist drawing upon a pool of influences, taking in jazz, funk, soul, electro, Chicago house and Detroit techno - you can listen to the influences at work throughout the six tracks, transporting your senses off world, into the deep realms and forgotten worlds of a vintage future.


Matt says: Vintage techno here from Birmingham. The aural equivelent of a Château Lafite from 1787. The region, the ingrediants, and the climate were completely in sync to produce some of the best techno the world would ever hear.
