FREE DOWNLOAD: Track 1 – Liquor Mart

The critically-acclaimed 1998 debut album, remastered in 2006 with previously-unreleased material.

Stellar reviews for this release in 1998:

“...a top-ranking set of steady, powerful digital beat explorations... Transformantra spin original accents onto the techno form, expanding the genre while keeping techno’s original searching spirit in mind... Impressive stuff.”
— Urb

“This Toronto quartet purvey a refreshing brand of funky electronica that’s at once rhythmically elastic and texturally warped. Avoiding sonic clichés and categorization ain’t easy in 1998, but Transformantra manage to produce challenging music that bursts free of the demands of both clubs and the home-listening experience.”
— Alternative Press

“An album that took me by surprise... Transformantra manage to develop their own 66 minutes of sound which covers all the bases analog and digital. “Satan’s Address” is a mid-tempo track with flanged moog-style bass keyboards and a dense beat. The album evolves and expands on the darker, slower “Glaci-ied” that begins with spacey ambience a la Orb before releasing a chopped break. Nice.”
— XLR8R

“...this crew keeps it on the good foot, albeit twisted, mangled funk, throwing in liberal doses of dub on “Satan’s Address” and “Nugget Matic.” “Glaci-ied” is a chilly enclave of pointillist pulses and icy synth washes. “Fragments Of Illumination” is ‘80s electro with its fierce static rhythms and its propulsive grooves... Transformantra has made the transition into being one of the most exciting techno acts around, and this debut shouts out loud and clear that they can match anybody, anywhere.”
— Exclaim!

It began with an ongoing series of electronic jam sessions, brimming with vitality. It ended with DATs of extraordinary material languishing in a shoebox. But in between, this foursome was being met with North American critical-acclaim, while blowing minds on warehouse dancefloors.

Transformantra was: Mike Gibbs, Will Mokrynski, Nancy Nieuweboer and Will Skol.
