AllMusic Review by

Studio 1 - Variationen includes 13 tracks of Mike Ink reworkings, sublime electro-dub reminiscent of Panasonic's clips and clicks as well as the original source recording, Ink's Studio 1 series. True, the echoed phasing (almost completely separated between left and right channels) can be rather disorienting on first listen, sounding more like the equivalent of a photographic negative compared to the real picture of a straight-ahead techno track. The results tend to jell after several listens, as the lag-time on all those repeated effects begins to make some sort of twisted sense.
