And each of those original records was, in some way, collectable. The Healing Force Project's "Cloak Device" first appeared on a collaborative EP with the label Nous made specifically for an in-store at Rush Hour Records during Amsterdam Dance Event. As usual for the Italian producer, the track is impressively out-there, a cosmic mess of throbbing synths and fluttering percussion. "Chewy" is a wonderfully hazy UK garage tune by the American producer Max D (AKA Maxmillion Dunbar of Future Times). It originally appeared on a split with Cousin Cockroach, complete with an excellent poster by Ken Sortais.
Coincidentally or not, the best track here is taken from the most expensive record—Beneath's "WIP" is a UK techno banger with a snare pattern that's at once vaguely Latin and absolutely fierce. (Max D designed the poster for the original 12-inch, which may have helped push it into the €50 bracket on Discogs.) Whatever your feeling on the limited vinyl game, these tracks prove Berceuse Heroique have something special going on.
